We sit outside at the deck overlooking the water, it's really nice. The lobster is so fresh and sweet, my husband ended up order for more. The price is reasonable.

They clearly overwork their waitstaff, so I won't really hang them on service. I will hang them on carding a bunch of 30-40 year olds and then refusing to serve anyone without an ID. I will hold their excessively high pricing against them.

The food is alright. Presentation is minimal. There are better places to eat in Bar Harbor, that's for sure. But it's on the water, so it has that going for it, which is nice.

Bottom line is they'll be busy simply based on their location, so they don't really care if you're satisfied.

Sat outside overlooking the water. Kids loved it so much we went there the second night also. First night service was excellent, second night, waitress was terrible. Lobster Cobb salad was excellent.

Excellent food, from the clam chowder and lobster, crab fondue to the lobster rolls, haddock sandwich and crab rolls! Everything arrived in perfect order and was quite delicious.

Too full to try dessert but there is always next time. Our server was pretty good, he had a few tables but James did a nice job. Picked on our beverage needs just in the nick of time.

This was my favorite meal in Bar Harbor. I had the sun shower, clam chowder, split a lobster roll and the seafood sampler. I went back for more chowder and the haddock sandwich. The one thing that was ok was the lobster bisque, I preferred the chowder. Our server Tyler was the best - overall we loved it!
