“Nice!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We chose Stewman's because it's well known and they had the full 'Maine Lobster Bake' including a cup of chowder, 1 1/4 lbs lobster, mussels, salt potatos, corn on the cob and blueberry pie. The corn wasn't good but everything else was. The waiter patiently answered our questions and explained the difference between hard and soft shell lobster ect. The pie and the chowder were outstanding. The restaurant sits out on a pier and has indoor and outdoor seating. There are great views of the harbor and it's very convenient if you are downtown. Overall it's a good place for a Lobster Bake novice.

“Pricey”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We ate here after driving all day to get to Bar Harbor. It was raining and we parked down the street, so it worked perfectly. The atmosphere was nice - we say right by the fire. Our server, James, was very personable and sincere. He made sure the fire was well fed, and got our drinks very quickly. My husband and I both ordered rolls, one crab and one lobster, and split them. The crab roll was good but the lobster roll didn't have much flavor. James convinced us to try the blueberry pie and it was AMAZING! It was so good, I wish we would have eaten it every meal we were in the area. Overall, this was a nice place, but it was a bit pricy. We had meals much better elsewhere that were less money, but they were not right on the water. You are paying for the location. But kudos to James - he took great care of all the tables he had.

“Giant lobster with reasonable price”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

I had the biggest lobster in my whole life. It tasted so good. I thought I had to pay big bucks but I was very surprised when I saw the bill. Lobster stew was also very good. The restaurant was not busy considering the great location.

“Yummy....”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The GIANT lobster, the lobster roll, the sampler, and the fish and chips were all delicious. Nice setting and friendly staff. We arrived the restaurant late in the evening but still felt welcome. The last order was 10pm but recommend to arrive no later than 9pm. Pick a indoor seat if you cannot handle the cold weather. All in all, excellent dining experience. We went back the next evening for some more.

“Average food, good location, slow service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The title says it all. Great location off of the end of Main Street facing the water. Lobster was okay, but nothing to rave about. $5 charge to pull the lobster meet for customers. Service was slow on a slow day, but Rob was very friendly. Try the blueberry pie somewhere else.
