Casual dining at its best!
The combination of a micorbrewery and Mainely Meat BBQ is well worth the visit for all of those folks staying in Bar Harbor. If I lived closer, I'd make many visits here.
First the beer - a cool menu describes the beers with a great description of the flavors. Not just something short like, "dark beer, hints of coffee". I'd highly suggest the Coal Porter and Ellen's Coffee Stout. I also tried a New Guy IPA at one of the restaurants in Bar Harbor. All excellent beers.
The food at Mainely Meat BBQ is excellent. My wife and I tried the BBQ chicken dinner (my choice) and pulled pork sandwich (her choice) as well as sampled some ribs. They offer two choice for sauces...a hot and a sweet BBQ sauce. The chicken, pork, and ribs, were all well smoked and cooked well. The ribs almost didn't even need the sauce. They serve an excellent jalapeno cornbread, and I tried their slaw and baked beans as sides with the chicken. Here's another cool thing...they have a simple 1 page menu. They know what they are good at making and they stick with it.
Beer and BBQ meat. What more could anyone want in life?? ha ha ha
