“Delicious food but very slow service”
Review of The Upper Deck

It must be our luck or lack of with the service during this vacation. This is the second one in a row that we had to wait forever for service. On the positive side, the food was fresh and prepared with a note of sophistication. The patio has an amazing view of Southwest Harbor.

Living on MDI we have tried every restaurant. Restaurants change ownership annually so its always a gamble. I had a great vegetarian taco salad.Others in the party had sirloin burger and a chicken dish which was quite good. It is a rare day on MDI when you can sit outdoors, have a great view and good food-usually one or two of these is missing! Prices are fair for MDI.

Service, food ,cleanliness and hygiene vary daily at all restaurants on MDI- managers can't seem to operate consistently day to day with the cooking,serving and cleaning staffs.

Plan to cook your own dinners when visiting MDI.

Another beautiful sunny day in Maine. Stopped in for lunch at the Upper Deck and what a view. The portions of the food was great and tasty too. Check it out very good place for lunch fresh seafood right off the boat.

Thought we would enjoy a nice meal after traveling all day to get to Bar Harbor....that wasn't to be the case. We couldn't wait to taste some delicious clam chowder. What we got was thin cold soup that I couldn't even finish. The rest of our meals were also disappointing. Service was slow although our waiter was very nice. The view was beautiful but there are lots of places on the island with great views. Try one of them instead!

This place has location going for it and that is all! Gives the term "greasy spoon" new meaning. We used more napkins soaking up the excess oil from our fried haddock than we did to wipe our own faces. Incredibly small portions. Conversely so; incredibly high prices (even for a tourist town). No cole slaw served with the meal as described. Food took forever from ordering to table-side.
Come to think of it....don't even bother going for the view.....there are plenty of other restaurants on the island with as good if not better vistas and definitely better fare.
