We loved Sips! Despite arriving just 10 minutes before they closed, they welcomed us with opened arms! The food was delicious! All 5 of us had a different fish and we enjoyed them all!

We enjoyed delicious dinners and friendly service in this intimate restaurant. Loved the risotto and lobster ravioli, but you have to love cream to enjoy the ravioli. Went back for breakfast and we were not disappointed. This is a must when in Southwest Harbor.

We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner many times at Sips over the years. It's a mainstay here in Southwest Harbor. Best mojitos in town! Very good food, service and atmosphere. Only wish they had room to expand to include an outside terrace.

Family visiting and 9 year old loved the blueberry crepes but was over the moon with the hot Chocolate piled high with whip cream drizzled with chocolate and so colorful with sprinkles! From eggs and bacon to pancakes all enjoyed the morning.

Perfect buttermilk pancakes, friendly staff. Started my day off right. Just off the main road through Southwest Harbor, plenty of nearby parking.

Cold, wet, damp, rainy . . . typical June in Southwest Harbor, Maine. We're here for a wedding tonight. We needed a hearty breakfast and found Sips, a rustic homey place with a bar and a great breakfast menu. We ordered a bunch of things....More
