After touring Acadia National Park, we stopped by Stewman's for a bite to eat. We were seated in a covered area with a nice view of the water. Service was excellent and the lobster rolls were superb.

Everything in Bar Harbor is expensive (except for t-shirts and sweatshirts) but you get what you pay for here. I ordered a select lobster (2.5 lbs). It was perfectly cooked and exactly as it should be. It came with corn on the cob. She ordered...More
