Based on reviews we went there, and it turned out to be good place not as great though. One star less just because lobsters were not cooked properly or may be it was because we went there late at night. But being a lobster place, they had amazing choice of veggie food as well. If you are veggie and want to have their really delicious item, go for Squash cake. Don't worry they are not sweet at all just incase if you are wondering. Its a must try. We had ordered one of that and one veggie pasta, but those squash cake were so good that we had to replace veggie pasta with squash cake. Server was good enough that he didn't charged us at all for the pasta. Over all an amazing fancy place to go with the garden & main street view on side.

I already knew this was the best sit-down restaurant in Bar Harbor from special occasion dinners there with my spouse. For some time now I have answered visitor-on-the-street questions: "Where can I have a really good dinner with great seafood choices in Bar Harbor?" with one word, "Galyn's". Always fresh and well-prepared seafood, lots of "turf" options for the landlocked, good wines, appetizers to long for (crab cakes!!)...So, when we needed a place to celebrate our youngest's graduation with some sophisticated guests, I made a reservation. The result was 8 great individual meals and all reported their food was perfect. The young man waiting on us was great: friendly and very well informed on multiple allergy questions!. A group like this can be a challenge, but not to him (or the kitchen)! Perfect timing! Our experience was A++. We are looking forward to our next 2 person visit and will continue to answer that visitor question the very same way, "Galyn's"

Recommended to us by many shop keepers. Lived up to recommendation. Had crab cakes which were wonderful. And the house salad dressing, sweet and sour celery seed was the best. They even gave me a recipe card with the recipe.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner. Service was perfect. We sat on the front porch which was enclosed because of the cool temps this spring. We had a view of the harbor and park which was completely peaceful. It was a really great evening.

We had lunch at Galyn's our first day, and what a great way to get started on our first time in Maine! We all had a different burger from the menu, as well as prepared differently, and all were delicious. They didn't only taste good, the actual burger looked fresh and well made. We also each had a different dessert, and the best by far was their Blueberry & Apple crunch! Yum!!! Service was excellent, and the upstairs where they war us, had a great view. Will definitely go back!
