Food was great. The filet mignon and lobster were cooked to perfection! The potato and vegetable was very good. Drinks were good, especially the blueberry martini, nice and strong. We were a little hesitant to visit due to some of the reviews we have read but we are glad we did.
The blueberry creme brûlée was very tasty, just needed a tad bit more firmness and it would have been perfect.
Julie was our hostess and she was very friendly and nice. Our waiter Tyson was excellent! Couldn't have asked for better service. We sat in the room upstairs and it was very comfortable and homey. Will definitely visit again the next time we go to Bar Harbor.

What a treat. We didn't have reservations but they fit us in. Friendly staff, excellent waiter, and the best food. Loved the atmosphere and the margarita was wonderful. Just what I wanted after a long day of walking around the park and the town. Will go back for sure!

A pleasant pub-like building. Seafood was just okay, chowder bland with few clams, but the filet was outstanding.

The menu pleased us all. The steaks and seafood were great...followed by awesome dessert! A great way to start our vacation.

I saw several ads and we decide to go to Jack Russell's for dinner. Parking lot is small and cramped just like inside the restaurant. Left side of the bar is so cramped that if you are sitting toward the inside, all patrons on that side have to move to let you out to go to the restroom. Food was okay. Sides are very small and over priced. Order homemade blueberry cobbler for dessert. Basically, blueberry pie filling, served in a coffee cup with ice cream on top. Very disappointing. We will never go back.
