Not much to look at as you come up the stairs into the pool room and bar, but walk out onto the balcony and it is a whole different picture. We both had the ribeye steaks which were great and the view into the park only made the meal better. It sure helped that the weather was beautiful and we had a gorgeous day. The service was good and we definitely would eat here again.

On our first night in Bar Harbor we went here and it was quite late. It was awful! Unless you're 20 and like crap music! It was like a bad movie from the 80's. Needless to say we didn't stay long. But the following night we went to the pub which is underneath, called Rupinini's. This was so much better! Still had young people and the music was really good. Went here a few times, good atmosphere and the barmen were friendly. We did go back to Carmen Verandah on the Wednesday and a bit earlier. It was a bit better then. But we left before the dj started!

We loved this restaurant. The staff were amazing and the food was equally as good. I had the Poachers Special which happened to be Bison Burger. I added pepper jack cheese, it was amazing. Next time we are there we will definitely stop by.

I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was the best one I have EVER had (and I have had a lot). The onion rings and fish and chips were great too. The view from the porch is lovely.

Overall my experience eating at the Carmen Verandah wasn't very good. You have to seat yourself, but there's nothing to say seat yourself, the table we chose hadn't been cleaned yet, service was okay and friendly to a certain extent, the overall appearance and atmosphere of the establishment was bland.

Okay to eat here for once if you're on a budget, but wouldn't eat here again if visiting Bar Harbor
