Good bar off the beaten trail. The prices are reasonable. Staff is friendly. Enough TVs to watch sports.

Our first stop in Bar Harbor and it almost ruined the whole night. I'm not sure what was up the bartender's butt however he needs to get it sorted out. Hey, bartender, you work on tips, keep that in mind. He was truly rude and...More

Great place to get off the beaten path and eat a good, reasonably priced meal. Vibe is chill, not as overrun with tourists as everywhere else in BH!

When we over-nighted in Portland on our way to Bar Harbor, we discovered that our bartender had grown up in Bar Harbor so we asked for recommendations. This one was on his list so it was the first place we stopped for lunch when arriving...More

Climb onto the deck in the trees and rest for a spell during your busy vacation day. Enjoyed a local Lunch IPA (yes, that’s really the name of the brew) with the hand breaded and lightly fried haddock. A nice Caesar salad accompanied the meal....More

Stopped in after hiking in Acadia for lunch and a beer. Nice sitting out on the patio. Had their fried Haddock sandwich with tater tots and sweet Thai chili rings. Both were delicious. Fried fish was not greasy—the primary reason I shy away from fish...More

Fun atmosphere, but the wings were not good. Can't screw up beer and cider. Wouldn't recommend. We went there because there was no line, that says it all.

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!
