Got into town very late on Tuesday night. Dog & Pony was one of a few eateries that were still open & serving food. Didn't have high hopes but we were starving. Had to place an order at the reception area and go retrieve it...More

Before heading to the airport, we had lunch at The Dog and Pony Tavern. My sister and I couldn't decide on the Haddock Sandwich or the Lobster Roll so we split both and got the best of both worlds! Our table was outside in the...More

We ate here once on our trip to Bar Harbor. The server was attentive and I liked the feel of the restaurant. My husband had the lobster roll and I had a fried fish sandwich. It was fairly typical pub food. Our son enjoyed playing...More

Nice pub with good food and atmosphere near but not on the Main/Cottage streets area. Nice people and quick service made for a very satisfying experience. Highly recommend!

We stopped here after doing the downtown thing to have a few drinks. It was a comfortable place to relax with reasonably priced drinks and food.

So, I've been coming to Bar Harbor for 16 years, and this place has drastically changed in that time. It used to be a locals oriented place, but now it's the late night place to be. That said- Don't come here for the food. It...More

On the high recommendation of family who have visited several times, we ate here on our recent trip to town. My fried chicken sandwich came with Buffalo sauce. So good. Just the right amount of heat and crunchiness. My husband had fried chicken tenders, which...More

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!
