The food and service were both good, and the view - from a dock on the harbor near where the whale watching boats sail from - was also good.

Picture your idea of the quintessential Maine lobster dinner. Outdoors. Picnic table. Fresh whole lobster off the boat. Corn on the cob. Potatoes. Then if you add a killer lobster bisque, a full service bar, a dining deck on the docks with a fantastic view of the harbor, and great service, you've got the Fish House Grill. Lobster dinners are always market price, but at $17 each it was fantastic!

Wow! Thank you for the high praise! We are so glad to have served the "quintessential Maine lobster dinner" and will continue to try to meet that goal!

Our server, Josh, was great! Our meals though, were a disappointment. We have been coming to Bar Harbor for 25 years. This year made 3 consecutive years. Fish House Grill has always been our favorite spot to eat for value of food. This year the prices were much higher and the quality less. It says on TripAdvisor the meals range from $15-$20.... you need to up that price. Fried clams are around $21. We got things that we have ordered before; the lobster claw dinner and an appetizer size order of fried clams. I doubt we will go back this year on our trip.

We hope you'll reconsider and decide to join us again next year. Our prices are often based on market prices, so we have little control over that, but your feedback on the quality is appreciated. It would help if you could tell us specifically what wasn't up to par. Thanks for your review, and we hope to see you again!
