No frills, basic good food and drink with value prices and great service. Inside and outside seating. Not much of a view but not a tourist spot with up charges because of that.

The staff went out of its way to make me feel welcome. In the winter, it had a very "locals only" feel to it, but looks can be deceiving. The bartender was warm and friendly. The cook came out to check on my meal -...More

Stopped in just after opening for a quick lunch after morning hike. Greeted with friendly staff, waited on quickly, and food was delivered accurately and pretty fast. Food was typical pub far, but well worth stopping in. Would like to go back later this summer....More

Nice little place off the main strip. Food was good and the drinks cold. Nice place to sit outside and get a bite and drink. Kids had fun playing the darts and the ring game. Food came out quick.

We stopped in here right after we arrived in Bar Harbor. We just had a beer but the selection was good and they had a Happy Hour that was nice (unlike Blaze where they charge top dollar for the same exact beer and claim they...More

My Signature Ale Burger was delicious. Husband's Cesar w/ chix was good except the chix was forgotten. But, the salad itself was good and ended up being enough food. We tried the Poutine: was enjoyable, but wish there was a bit more cheese. Entertainment in...More

Stopped in for lunch and a beer. The Dog and Pony has a nice atmosphere, friendly service and good food. They had an outdoor patio that would be great to sit on if the weather was nice.

Comfortable, friendly, great service and selection of beer. Staff was friendly, efficient. Menu good for a quick lunch or snack. Best as an evening pub.

The lobster Mac and cheese was to die for! My husband had the lobster roll and was blown away! Great beers on tap! A little off the beaten path of the Main Street but so worth it!

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!
