Walked in for dinner while visiting downtown Bar Harbor. This restaurant is by the water. Fast service, friendly staff, awful food. Nasty women's bathroom. Will not patron again!

They were very busy but we were enjoying the sights and didn't realize that it was taking a little while to get our meal. Our waitress came and apologized and brought us... More

Had an outstanding lunch here with family, the food was excellent and the service very desirable. It just happened there was a cruse ship at anchor just off the shore, what a sight.

We had lunch here after driving around the national park. Downtown Bar Harbor was very busy and we had a time finding a place to park. Kind of found this place by accident. It is underneath another building along the waterfront and not readily seen. It was ok for lunch, nothing spectacular. It is probably hopping in the evenings as... More

We made a special trip to the Fish House Grill to celebrate our anniversary. Glad we made the stop. Our server took the time to tell us a brief history of the restaurant and the hostess seated us at a corner table where we could watch the people boarding the little boats to the cruise ships in the harbor.

Thank Mary L
