What a surprise to see the new modern style building after going to the original crowded and comfy old one for 25 years at least. Dinner rolls were good, lobster was good (they are all about the same everywhere) and the size was definitely at the larger range at about 1.25 lb. We go there every year and to Galen's as well

We went to West Street Café after a tour of Acadia National Park. The food here blew me away, everything we had was wonderful and the blue berry pie was to die for. The prices were better than most restaurants in Bar Harbor. If we go back this will be on my must visit again list.

Six of us stopped in for dinner. We had lobster, stuffed mushrooms, scallops, and haddock. The service was friendly and quick but we were simply unimpressed with the food. The mushrooms were over breaded and mushy, the lobster was like warm. The fish was dry. Not a good choice and the high trip advisor ratings are surprising based on our experience.

Just OK.. I can't think of anything outstanding, but it wasn't horrible.. my baked potato came with nothing on it and had to ask for butter and sour cream... appetizer, crab cakes were ok, I've had much better.. service again, ok.. had to ask for butter for potato, seemed she didn't really care if we were taken care of. Not rude, but other wait staff seemed to be more helpful.. not a great recommendation. Nice atmosphere tho.

Clean, Bright, Light, Airy...
Was worried with the new place that prices would now be more on the Bar Harbor range. Not so, West Street kept their value prices and their great early birds specials. Great mix on the menu, drink specials are always fun, staff friendly and food while not "gourmet" they offer classics with a few surprises such as Cafe Delight with lots of seafood.
Worth a try !
