Lobster roll pretty good. I asked for it with butter so they skipped the mayo. Good IPA. Wife had blackened haddock also good.

Five friends dined here for lunch and enjoyed the experience at this sports bar. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff but the food quality varied seriously. The Lobster roll was excellent as was the pulled pork sandwich and Caesar salad. The Poutine was interesting and the...More

We went here for dinner and were all disappointed. It has been a source of joking ever since. The selections are minimal - nothing healthy. We were desperate.

We had great lobster rolls here . Very fresh lobster which you would expect because apparently the owner's father is a lobsterman. The bread it was served on was very fresh too. This is a nice place. Not to fancy , but comfortable. Excellent service.

We were told that the Dog and Pony Tavern had the best lobster roll in Bar Harbor, and I think we would have to agree! I also enjoyed a large fresh salad. Our server, Lynn, was so friendly and so accommodating! We ate outside and...More

Definitely worth the visit and make sure to sit outside. This restaurant is down behind the police/fire station. The food was good and the service fantastic.

The Dog and Pony Tavern is a unique dining and drinking spot that is hidden in a cluster of trees off the beaten path in Bar Harbor. Those who are adventurous enough to find it will enjoy cheap but delicious cocktails and meals in the "treehouse" beer garden, outdoor gazebo bar, or may find themselves at the indoor dining area watching the day's sports game. D 'n P (as the locals call it, short for Dog and Pony) opens at 11:00 am for lunch and drinks and stays open until 1 am! Food is served until 12:00am, but after the tavern closes at 1 am in the summer, a take out window opens, and food is available from 1am 'till approximately 2am. It's a great peaceful place to eat and drink during the day and a happening night spot after the sun sets. In 2010, Dog and Pony was voted #1 Patio Dining and #1 Night Spot! Locally owned and operated, the DnP offers a unique Bar Harbor experience you can't find anywhere else!
