This place is a pleasant surprise from the traditional tourist restaurants found in a popular area. We were fortunate to be able to dine outside to enjoy the pleasant but foggy weather. The interior looked very nice and would have been a good alternate. Food was very good and moderately priced for the area but not, in my opinion, the same as we have found outside the tourist area.

Good value for the price. Great item was the crab stuffed mushrooms. The lobster salad had a very good celery seed vinaigrette. A bit more lobster would have been nice but overall good. Steamed mussels were good.

Only item of concern was iced tea was never refilled.

During our trip to New England, we spent one day at Bar Harbor, Maine. We had dinner at Galyn's located on Main Street. First, we were seated at a table at a window looking out over the water...it was a great view. Second, the server assigned to us (Ray) did an excellent job. He was attentive to our needs as customers, but not excessively where he would have been a nuisance. And the food...everything we had from starters to dessert was excellent!!! Great place!!!! Pricey...but worth it.

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk at our hotel. They didn't steer us wrong! We were seated upstairs in a pretty, dimly lit room. We started with the clam chowder that didn't disappoint. It was creamy and delicious. Then I had the lazy man's lobster and my husband had the Frenchman Bay Stew. Both cooked perfectly, and we enjoyed every bite! Our waiter was very efficient and friendly. He was always ready with whatever we needed, and still had time to chat a bit. We would definitely return to this restaurant--maybe next time we'll ask for a table with the harbor view!

Very friendly staff, they are also very knowledgeable! Second floor has a great view of the harbor! Menu was varied and outstanding! Seafood was very fresh! Oysters were excellent, lobster was the best. I don't think you can go wrong at this place.

Wow, that was a great restaurant. It started with Martha, an amazing waitresses who gave us great service and was a delightful person. We ordered lobster bisque, crab cakes, lobster linguine, lobster enchiladas and the halibut. Everyone was delighted with their meal and the servings were very generous. We sat up on the 2nd floor and the view on the ocean was very nice. I would go back again!
