Giant Stairs is a small family run business with fresh seafood and a pleasant interior. The fried haddock, fries, onion rings, and chicken salad are all very tasty! Service was quick. The atmosphere was friendly. We would definitely return for lunch!

We had traveled all day, so we were looking for a place that was simple and casual. The Giant Stairs fit the bill perfectly. We had lobster rolls, which came with great slaw and fries. Service was friendly and efficient.

This is a part of Maine's rocky coast that seems made for families with kids! My 9-year-old grandson thoroughly enjoyed himself climbing on the rocks. And we got some lovely pictures of the rocks, the ocean, and the wild flowers and shrubs along the path.

My husband and I visit Bailey Island every year and always make time to have at least one dinner at Giant Stairs. Great food, excellent service and friendly warm atmosphere. If you visit in the fall be sure to check the hours of business.
