Lobster at its best fresh from the sea. Eat outdoors and watch the lobster boats unload while you enjoy your meal.

Beal's is 10 minutes outside of downtown Bar Harbor. Since we were in town with a cruise ship, the downtown was overrun with tourists. By getting a little out of town we were able to avoid the crowds & get a quality meal where the...More

I'm not a lobster lover- but the haddock burger was like getting a 3 piece fish and chip serving! The potato chips are excellent as well as the blueberry lemonade!

Lobster. Ignore everything else and buy lobster only. Yes - you can get great mussels and some “lobster roll” but don’t! For very ( very!) reasonable price you pick hour ( live of course) lobster. They will make it perfectly for you! Don’t use fork...More

We have visited many local lobster pounds during our week here and would have to say this was the best. Large menu, with plenty to offer those who do not want lobster. Food was well prepared and they even crack the lobsters for you! It...More

As I recall the menu is the same all day. Lobsters are by the pound. Prices on other items run from about $10.00. Specials are on the board on the right as you walk in.

Eat, drink and be messy. A visit to Beal's Lobster Pier is always a highlight - a restaurant that's on the water, with an atmosphere that's down to earth. At our working lobster pier in Southwest Harbor, Maine, you and your family will have a blast watching the boasts coming in and the lobstermen unloading their fresh catch. Hear the creak of rope on the moorings. Catch the scent of saltwater on the breeze and enjoy the waterfront view while chowing down on the freshest lobster you can eat. (Don't worry, the napkins are on us!)
