We ate here on a warm evening (upstairs next to the window)! The boiled lobster meal comes with a lobster bisque to start, a whole lobster to follow with vegetable sides and then a brownie an ice-cream for dessert! Unbeatable value! My husband had the baked haddock with shrimp and said it was great too! Nice service and good wines.

The baked, stuffed scallops were fine, they were not overdone, and they have a decent selection of beers. The mojito was way too sweet. We like garlic, but the garlic mashed potatoes had too much and so did the peas. Worst of all, the baked cod tasted somewhat of dishwashing liquid.

Great food! Very quaint building away from the tourists. Had the pesto pasta and Mediterranean pasta. Both really good. For dessert we had the Mounds cheesecake. To die for! Server was awesome also!

We stopped here on our first night in Bar Harbor, and what a treat! The food was excellent, and the portions generous! The menu was extensive with wonderful early bird specials. Never had a better pasta primavera anywhere. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

The antipasto for two was huge and delicious. Combined with warm yummy rolls, it was more than enough for a small late night dinner.
