While visiting Bar Harbor we felt compelled to have lobster. As we don't have it regularly, our sever was very helpful and fun! We had a beautiful view of the harbor. Lobster was great, as well as the blueberry pie!

Steamers were pricey & served in a large pot which made our 16 steamers (for $14) look pretty small. At first not enough water was served to clean them so i had a mouth full of sand.. Salmon sent back twice before fully cooked. Burger decent & fried basket of seafood ok - food mediocre- guess the location is what brings people in - right on the harbour.

We ate on the deck overlooking the harbor. Great views. Staff was very friendly. Its an outdoor lobster house so it is very typical of that. Food was good. Menu is large (more than just seafood). Drinks are good. It was far from the best meal I had in Bar Harbor but if you want to sit outside in a fun atmosphere with good drinks and ok food - this is the place. We were told we would have trouble getting in. We went on a Sunday afternoon in August at 12:30 with 2 cruise ships in harbor. Waiting about 3 min for a table.

I seleced Stewman's based on their menu and I had the ability to sit outside on the dock and watch the sun go down. Stewman's will not take phone reservations but I didn't have to wait for a table. I sat on the upper of two docks going out over the water. Rob, my server, was very friendly and attentive. I was suprised they only had six beers on tap but a large selection of bottled. I tried the Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale. It was very good. Stewman's featured a "Downeast Lobster Experience". For the value for dollar, I ordered that. The starter was a cup of clam chowder. For me, most clam chowders are the same but it was certainly good. The entre came in a hot pot and was a generous serving of local mussles, a whole lobster, boiled baby red bliss potatos and a half ear of corn on the cob. The mussles were tender and tasty. This was a new shell lobster, so it came apart fairly easy with little mess. The meat was very tender and full of flavor. The potatos and corn were prefectly cooked. Included in the meal was a desert of local blueberry pie with whipped cream. The meal was very good. Service was fast and friently. Presentation was both impressive and efficiant. This was very good and (considering it included chowder and desert) generous value for the dollar. I would eat there again for certain. It was nice for my last night in town to sit on the dock and enjoy a pleasant dinner. As an aside, I was on a Bar Harbor Whale Watch boat earlier in the day. With my ticket stub from there, Stewman's (located next door) would give you 10% off the price of the entre. That was extra value, but did not influence my decision to eat there (it was however a nice bonus). There are two Stewman's. Eden Street and on the warf at the end of West St by the harbor.
