Last night was yet again a fantastic dining experience at the Poor Boy's Gourmet. Took my High school best friend, and he was amazed. Baked Stuffed Haddock is fantastic as usual. The couple next to us ordered the Giant Cream Puff and blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream.... She finished off both deserts..... I was so impressed we did the same thing, except Michael ate half of everything so we just shared.... Make Reservations to make sure you get a table....

The restaurant was staffed very appropriately and customers were served timely and well.

We ordered a tomato and cucumber salad which seemed to consist of garden fresh tomatoes. A dinner plate with a generous amount of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers was enjoyed and I considered it a very good value insofar as salads/apps are concerned. Very nice!

I ordered shrimps and scallops scampi... an excellent preparation over linguine! The chef cooked the scallops carefully and on the lighter side... so they remained soft to the point of melting in your mouth... absolutely delicious. Very fresh shrimps and scallops!

The pricing was very fair for all dishes and thanks to excellent service (highest rating given) as well, I look forward to returning to Poor Boy's the next time I'm in Bar Harbor!

Atmosphere is average, even sitting outside which I love to do. Food is suberb, had lobster with linguini, huge portion. Salad was best I have had in Maine this week fresh tomatoes and romaine lettuce. Can't wait to come back here.

Poor Boy's fully accommodated our messy party of eight (four adults + four kids) on short notice. Table ready on arrival, happy hour drinks aplenty. The blueberry daiquiri is positively sinful. Get in before six for the early bird deals. Tons of pasta options for bottomless eaters. And of course great lobster and fish too. Highly recommended!

We frequently visit Bar Harbor. We have researched and tried a lot of Bar Harbor restaurants. All restaurants seem to accommodate non frequent visitors. For most restaurants the food is mediocre (Sysco) and expensive. We are never disappointed when we go to Poor Boy's Gourmet.
Lobster is served several ways in liberal portions. The staff is young, well trained, and accommodating. Year after year it remains our favorite place to eat.
