“Nice beer selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Stopped in for a cold one (or 2) after spending the day hiking in Acadia. They had a very nice selection of beers on tap and the bartender let us sample a few before making a selection. We also had the Thai-chili wings which were very good.

“Ehhh… skip this place if you are with kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Not our favorite place in Bar Harbor with kids. Very pricey kids menu - with much more food than a 5 − 10 years can eat. Good beer selection, but they tasted kind of funny - like something was off. Service was good, and place was very clean. Nice outdoor patio and seating areas. Pizzas were tasty.

“Disappointing.. ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

After researching places to try out while visiting Bar Harbor, my husband and I were excited to find this restaurant with a seemingly interesting menu and extensive beer list, particularly local brews. However, upon arriving, we learned that not only was the good menu totally different than the one we viewed online, the beer list was slim and lacking on local brews. We sat for a while waiting on the server and eventually decided to go elsewhere for dinner that night. Hopefully they update their online information and more so include all of the fabulous local breweries in the area. We were definitely disappointed...

Good day,

My name is Matt, I am the owner of Bar Harbor BLAZE. I am responding bc either you are confused and writing a review for another restaurant or this is a fake review generated by a competitor or a competitor's friend to bring down a restaurant that is performing very well at this moment in time. I do not have time to petition Tripadvisor and bring to their attention the many issues and absolute lies that are being said here but I do in fact have time to respond to you.

First of all our menu is posted on line on our Facebook page and it is absolutely accurate and updated, so anything else you looked at is not something that we posted or are responsible for posting. We use our facebook page religiously and update is on a regular basis as well.

You also said in your review "the beer list was slim and lacking local brews"........WHAT?!?!?! We have the second largest beer selection North of Portland, Maine and BY FAR the largest and most eclectic in Bar Harbor. As for the local drafts or brews again we have THE MOST local Maine breweries in all of Bar Harbor and the second most North of Portland (we have 44 draft beers representing well over 30 Maine Breweries)....our Sister restaurant, Bangor BLAZE has the most beer and the most Maine brews, we are second to them.....and to say that West Street Cafe has a fantastic beer menu in one of your other reviews is OUTRAGEOUS....you sir, or madam are either trying to sabotage my reviews or you flat out are completely mis informed and WAY OFF in your estimations in this review. WE are DEFINITELY DISSAPOINTED in your lack of professionalism and your completely inaccurate and false statements contained in this review. Have a nice day and enjoy the wondeful beer selection at West Street Cafe........
My staff is VERY hard working and they have been doing an EXCELLENT JOB and I am here all the time and there was no walk outs bc of slow service.....
Next time you decide to write a inaccurate review or fake review maybe you should consider your words so you are not so blatantly out of line with your statements. Have a nice day.

“Draft Beer and Wood Fire Pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Cask conditioned beer and local draft beers on tap here are worth a try. We chose two different pizza's one of which the more unusual lobster pizza. Crust was perfectly cooked, toppings okay and fairly tasty. Not the best I've ever tasted but no real complaints.Plenty of choices on menu. Outside seating looked comfy, and inside seating average. Lots of folks at a seated bar. Server was efficient. Average place, nothing more.
