“Love it every time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

It is always special to dine outside on a beautiful fall afternoon on the terrace at the Bar Harbor Inn. Our menu selections (seafood platter & broiled haddock) were delicious, but the lobster bisque and the blueberry pie w/ cinnamon-sugar on the crust are absolutely the best!! Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The views were spectacular -- schooners, cruise ships, small fishing boats & a glorious sunset -- and across the table my handsome husband of 45 years!

“Great service, wonderful food, beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Went for dinner the night before last. We were dressed very casually, probably overly so. We were seated at a table by the window, a great view of the water and the harbor.

I had the grilled haddock, just because I've never had it before. My wife had the filet and lobster. The food and the side dishes were just delicious. Not huge portions, just right for us. Mine was served with snap peas in their shells. Fabulous!

Service was attentive. We had after dinner drinks. They have a nice selection of single malts and a very generous pour.

Not cheap but the atmosphere, service and food was worth it. Our bill with wine, an entree and after dinner drinks with a very generous tip was $150.

“A sunny day watching the boats in the harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is a nice outside restaurant below the Reading Room Restaurant. When it rains, they will seat you in the Reading Room for lunch which is where I wanted to go. The Reading Room is only open for dinner. The view outside is beautiful. I had a chicken salad wrap, my husband the haddock fish sandwich. Both were good, nicely prepared with attentive service.

“Great food & atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We really enjoyed the lobster bake! The lobster was huge and tasty, and don't miss the lobster mashed potato option with the bake. Nice beer and bar selections, great service and really fun to sit on the terrace and watch the passersby on Bar Harbor's main street.
