We decided to have the lobster dinner on our last day in Bar Harbor. Great choice. Not only was the food excellent but our waitress took the time to help us get the most out of the lobster by taking it all out of the shell for us in less than 1 minute. It was lots of fun to watch.

Sure, it's kitschy, touristy and a bit crowded, but the food was great, and isn't that why one visits a restaurant? I had the lobster special, which I ordered with some trepidation, but the lobster was large, succulent and beautifully cooked and turned out to be a good deal for the money. The crab dip, spinach dip and mussels were all delicious, and the service was surprisingly attentive considering how many people were there. Plus the place is right on the water, which was lovely. Good food and good value.

Everything from start to finish was perfect! The weather was a little cool but we chose to sit outside with our jackets on anyway. Love the rustic feel, the friendliness of the staff (especially Gail), very laid back, no sense of needing our table for the next customers, enjoyed the ambience, the food was awesome! I have been to Bar Harbor but somehow had missed this experience. Can't wait to go back here again and get another lobster roll...oh my word...so good.

Everything from start to finish. Customers felt very rushed. The design and interior were very crude. Each course was delivered long before the previous course was finished. The room was cold. It was very apparent that meals pre-cooked and brought to the table immediately. It was more like a fast food establishment than a dining experience. We are "locals" and we will not be back.

Yes, it's a tourist trap, but in a good way. Dining on the deck, overlooking the water, sipping blueberry beer while chowing down on a lobster roll and some of the best sweet potato fries we've ever had...great way to end our cruise!

Service was very fast and friendly, even with a cruise ship in town.
