“Worth a Stop”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

The Bar Harbor Inn is lovely -- the most wonderful location for dining outdoors. The Terrace Grill is especially good for lunch. Attentive service, very good food -- the crabmeat quesedilla was a hearty portion, and the blueberry pie well worth sampling--with a view like no other. I look forward to returning.

“If you want a great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

If you want atmosphere, a great view, and a piano player this is the place. Lobster is about $40. Martini in a small glass is $10. Glass of Pinot is $9 for a 3 oz glass. Food quality and service excellent for micro portions. About what you should expect when you walk into a place like this. Your are paying for the atmosphere not the food.

“Best View in Bar Harbor.....”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We love this place. We were in Bar Harbor for 2 weeks and we came here 5 times. Their mixed specialty drinks are awesome. And they have some great appetizers. When we are here we usually just admire the view and have some drinks and appetizers.

Their lobster is excellent. We both had their whole lobster bake during one of our visits. It was very good.

The best thing about this place is being able to just sit back with a drink and enjoy the perfect view. It is the best outside bar in Bar Harbor.

“A birthday at Bar Harbor Inn dining room”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

The first thing I will say about this restaurant is the lovely atmosphere and great views from the dining room windows. My companion and I were seated by a window and we were able to watch the fun activity happening in the harbor. The food was O.K. but in 2 instances not what the menu described -ex. no Maine shrimp in the corn chowder as advertised, which was the reason I ordered it. The wait staff was almost too attentive, but did what we asked--I had to ask for the au juice for my roast beef. Somehow the cake that was ordered got lost, but that was O.K. because they substituted a large dish of lemon sherbet with a candle--which I enjoyed more!! All in all it was a very nice evening with good food,but not extraordinary, an attentive staff and wonderful atmosphere and views. A most enjoyable 83rd birthday!!!!!
