The streets are narrow and busy but so worth the trip to Portside Grill. We were seated at the window table. It was fun to watch other tourist walking downtown. There were four of us dining at Portside Grill. We were greeted by a friendly hostess. Our drink order was taken fairly soon after being seated. Our waitress was friendly and made suggestions for our dining pleasure. Some of our choices were an appetizer of Crab, Spinach & Artichoke Dip another was a Caesar Salad. Both were very good. Two of our favorite entrees were Shrimp Carbonara (yum) and Seafood Crepes. I loved this restaurant.

First off our server Kat was wonderful & attentive! We were looking for steak & fish @ a fair price & found it here! I had a Sirlion & husband the Halibut both were cooked perfectly & came with a baked & green beans which were perfect! Down a side St. Across from 66 Restaurant. Perfect!

We were lured into the Portside Grill by the Clam roll special. We were seated promptly, and our drinks were also delivered promptly. But it took a while for the waitress to take our order, it seemed like they were short handed as we only seen one waitress and the greeter who was helping her out. Even though they were maxed out, both were very pleasant.

We placed our order and despite being short handed, our food was delivered in a timely manor. The Clams were good, and the portion size was satisfying. It did take a bit to get our check, but since we were sitting in the window seat, time was passed watching people go by.

A few steps off Main in Bar Harbor but such a step up in quality! We just finished a most amazing meal. The ambiance is bright and cheerful, not kitsch, the scallop special and the carbonara were stellar. Thanks for a delightful night out
