My family and I ate here for dinner. We ordered clam chowder and there were no clams and found one chunk of potato in the chowder. I believe the got the left over from the bottom of the pot. They should have just said we are out. We ordered crab cakes, the seafood risotto and fish and chips. Overcooked and bland. We did arrive after eight p.m. and I am just hoping it was a bad night. This was the first week of June and they were not that busy. Nevertheless it was a pricey meal for the quality of food. We did complain and were ignored by the server and management. I do not recommend this place.

I had the lobster mac and cheese, which was excellent. The ambiance was terrific, with great outdoor and indoor seating perfect for a late summer night.

With only a few restaurants open in the winter in Bar Harbor, you have to give credit to any of them that persevere. McKay's does more than persevere. The menu offers lots of choice, the price range is good, the food was very good, and the service was excellent.

They had a fire pit going outside at the front of the restaurant in the snow, which added to a very lovely atmosphere. The pub has several rooms which gives some intimacy and privacy. The menu had plenty of options. Although on the night we were there one dinner and one dessert were not available and we were not told until we had ordered them. Very good food, reasonable prices and a lovely dinner out.
