“Bar Harbor, Maine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

We were recently in Bar Harbor and went to Stewman's. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we got to sit where we wanted to. The food was good and our waiter Camden went out of his was to make sure we were taken care of. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave some great suggestions as to what we should see.

“Oversize portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Great for a casual dinner, Kid friendly. Huge portions of shrimp! OK view, but getting overbuilt in the area, so views are of a loading dock for a lobster boat tour, whale watch tour dick and kayak tour launch.

“Overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Food was decent not incredible. Our server was very pleasant and up from Del Ray,FL working seasonally. As we found out many of the staff are from out of town. View is what you pay for as the the restaurant is located on the wharf.

“Mixed Review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

Service and ambiance was great - however, it is the food why we go to restaurants. The food did not meet the minimum levels of good. The clam chowder was warm, not hot. Flavor and texture was ok. In the island experience, which includes, in Addition to the chowder, lobster, mussel, potatoes and corn, the entire dish in my opinion was undercooked. The give away was that most of the mussel had not opened. I refuse to eat unopened anything. The lobster was also a bit under cooked. The corn and potato were ok. The overall experience was
not worth the $30.

“No thrills lobster shack”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

Fresh lobsters and good service. Overpriced, probably due to the location. Tourist trap. Clam chowder was excellent. The lobster experience was overpriced. Good lobster, but skimpy on the rest of the entrée.
