Went here on my honeymoon after being recommended by the locals - was not disappointed! Amazing crab cakes and better yet the blueberry pie was the best we've ever had!! We can't wait to go back to have more pie.

Cozy, friendly and very busy eatery. Make sure you find it on the map before heading out. Sizable bar and many tables, in and out- excellent food.

Casual, good bar, and really good lobster. The lobster bisque was so good we came back a second night to enjoy it again. Blueberry pie with ice cream was wonderful. Very popular place that can get crowded, but you can always order dinner at the bar.

It was a rainy, windy, foggy day & we had just finished sight-seeing at Acadia NP and drove into Bar Harbor for dinner. Saw a lot of people waiting on the outdoor patio for their names to be called so we walked over and put our name in, too. The place was packed (two cruise ships were anchored offshore). It... More

We had heard good things about the restaurant and it turned out that they were all true. Really friendly welcome and excellent service. The restaurant decor is simple but comfortable. We had a house salad with blue cheese dressing which was fresh and tasty and crab cakes which were excellent. We followed these with the stuffed haddock and the seafood... More

I enjoyed the lobster roll and soup combination for lunch. Large portion, great taste, fine service. Went here twice for lunch. Despite the crowds, the service was prompt and accurate and the food was delicious.

Long wait before we got in, but it was worth it. Good tasty fresh fish was served. Staff was friendly but a bit rushed because of the full house.

OK, I was raised in RI and Massachusetts, so I KNOW fried clams! And these are as good as any I have had... anywhere. We were there on a Sunday and got the early bird lunch, which drops the price by a couple of bucks from the regular prices. but everything on the menu is excellent and not only did... More
