We stopped for lunch on what turned out to be one their last open days of the season. Some items were no longer available, but we managed well with what was in stock. These included BLT, dockhand burger, lobster roll were all very good —...More

There are not many restaurants on the quiet side of Acadia so The Colonel's was a great find. The seafood, salads, burgers and service were all great. We enjoyed it so much we came back a few days later after hiking in Acadia.

This is a tiny place to eat but has wonderful variety, not just seafood! You also can come in and just get ice cream.

We enjoyed our dinner here. There was no wait and the service was prompt. I had a pizza which had a nice fluffy crust.

While cruising Acadia N.P. we got hungry and didn't want to fight the crowds in Bar Harbor. Landed at this sweet little restaurant. Glad we did. Service was perfect; food was great and prices reasonable. Would revisit again without hesitation.

Freshly caught salmon and Maine blueberry pie were delicious. Our waitress, Britt, was hospitable and helpful on everything from the menu to sightseeing in the area. We had a great time

This is a small town restaurant with good food and friendly staff. The lunch lobster portion was perfect for mid day.
