So this place overall was okay. The views from the outside deck were okay. The smell from the marina was pretty bad though, too much stagnant water. The food was good. The outside seating can be rough if you dont get the right spot. The...More

There's kind of a lack of waterside dining in Southwest Harbor so The Upper Deck does fill that bill. You're looking out on a working Marina so it's not exactly a beautiful water view. Standard seafood fare, a bit pricey for SW Harbor, I thought.

The food was good. The service was good. The location was nice with a nice view of the harbor. The prices are a bit high, even for the area.

We stopped for lunch at this restaurant because of it's location at the tip of Southwest Harbor. That is about all out has going for it. Food was disappointing and 6 winglets were $10.

We wanted something close by and this place was open so we pulled it. We sat outside---lovely view of the harbor!!!!! The minestrone was unlike any we had ever had. More like a thick tomato soup with green peas and chickpeas. Weird combo, but it...More

Probably my least favorite of the Lobster Pounds we visited on our honeymoon in Maine but not unworthy. A little pricey and a little lackluster but the staff was very accommodating to my wife's special dietary needs which is a really big deal. I'd give...More

Found this little place by accident and ended up there 2 nights in a row. Great food and views...restaurant is a bit dated, but it’s part of the charm. About 20 minutes from Bar Harbor.
