I would say this was not the best place to eat but we were hungry & they had what we were looking for. Service was not good, & food was just okay.

We visited for lunch and the server was very friendly. We ordered the lobster rolls which were delicious. They included a lot of lobster and very little mayo in them, which is perfect. The sandwiches came with chips. Only downside was my spouses sandwich had significantly more lobster than mine did. Not a huge deal since I am a small... More

We had a large booking with orders placed day's before. We have all been looking forward to Maine lobster. Lobster roll and chowder ok when the gestapo like staff decided to bring the food. The owner was a mute and neither welcomed or spoke to our group. The female manager was so rude it was incredible. Single handed she destroyed... More

Okay food only- but much of the town has closed for the season. We were shocked that the price for lunch was over $60, including only 1 glass of wine. Cobb salad was $22, as was lobster roll and it was just mediocre. The cruise ships were in town, and some restaurants have closed for the season. But this felt... More

A great place to stop for a burger and a beer. The tables are right on Main Street and offer a nice warm and close feeling with the tourists. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable of the area. The food was prepared exactly as ordered, and the price was reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant for a quick bite.... More

We no here every time we are in Bar Harbor. They have a cheap happy hour, great food, pet friendly and it feels like home. The lobster carbonara was to die for.

Chowder was awesome. Lots of clams. Broth was thick and flavorful. I ate chowder every day while I was in Maine and this was the very best. Friendly, attentive service as well. Nice outdoor seating with a good view of passersby on the street.

The food was really good and I had no complaints. I had the steamed lobster the 1st time I visited and it was just ok. I learned after I went on the Lulu Lobster Boat, most places serve soft shell and I should have ordered a hard shell due to you get more meat (soft shell which is what I... More

Let me start off by saying I'm not one to write reviews like this, but after my experience at Cherrystones in Bar Harbor, I needed to share one of the worst dinning experiences with everyone. My wife and I arrived in Bar Harbor after a very long drive and were HUNGRY. We were lured by the bright patio lights of... More
