Description: Truly amazing inn, restaurant, location and service. Ivy Manor Inn and Pascone's Ristorante examplifies the flavor of Italy. The homemade meatballs and speghetti meat sauce from generations handed down to the most flavorfull marinara. A must try is one of Pascone's appetizer specialities "Italian Latkes"! The freshest of salad's particularly, the Arugular Insalate with fresh figs. The sauces are flagrant with fresh herbs and the aroma's throughout the restaurant are mouth watering. Not just pasta's, they have thought of everything. Their traditional 2 lb Maine Lobster Thermidor, "unbelievable" and the finest of Prime with the Chateau Briand For Two! Many fresh fish items along with all of the chicken entree's such as Chicken Parmiginao and Chicken Piccata! Be sure to order one of their sensational desserts, the Chocolate Bag For Two! It alone, is an experience in and by itself. Yes, Pascone's at the Ivy Manor Inn has carved it's name in Bar Harbor as "the place to dine".

If you want a nice quite place with great food away from bussel you will love this. Nice guitar music while dining. This is not the same old lobster dinner in Bar Harbor this is a treat. Try it you'll like it. Lobster Mac was unbelievable.

“Pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were apprehensive as the place looks pricey. Their courtyard is very inviting and it too says $$$. Surprise, we had awesome chef created gourmet food at prices less or same as not so notable restaurants across the street. Our server, Emily was extremely attentive and played along with my brother and my joking. We can't wait to be back in Bar Harbor just to eat here again. New owners, is what I think they said, doing a great job!!

“Really poor service- breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We had breakfast here in the outside cafe and sat very quickly at patio furniture,
Service was Really poor. Had to ask for cream for coffee/ silverware/ toast was delivered for one of us w. breakfast and butter asked for and not delivered until breakfast almost over. Husband never got his delivered until the bill. Crazy disorganized service. Some of breakfast was good but will not go back,
