I have been to the pub several times and the food is the best I ever had in Bar Harbor. Tom makes the best pancakes I ever had in my entire life. I always look forward to seeing Tom and having breakfast at his inn.He is very kind and accommodating to all people who stay or eat at his pub. I look forward to returning this year and cannot wait till I have his outstanding breakfast once again. Thanks Tom for always being so welcoming to us. You are like family to us.

This one is a little different. It's in a small Inn and has a small bar/restaurant. We had breakfast there a year ago and this year decided to have dinner there a couple times. We enjoyed it both times. It's a little quieter than most places in town. It has a pretty nice variety of items on the meno and the daily specials are unique. Everything we tried was very good. Service was also very good. A very friendly little pub.

We ate here during our first night staying at the Black Friar Inn. We had two of the ale soaked burgers and a cup of lobster bisque along with a couple Gritty's beers. It was all good and reasonably priced. The menu consisted of upscale pub food with lots of local dishes. Also had a piece of chocolate cake that was wonderful, but a bit expensive.

Just stopped by for a beer as had read abut it in a Frommer's Guidebook. No rooms available but still wanted to look at it. Barmaid/waitress was a bit irked that we didn't eat a meal there. We weren't very hungry plus prices were pretty steep, but from what we saw served the food looked very good.
