Description: C-Ray Lobster is the local's trusted seafood shop and take-out eatery. C-ray is the source for lobster dinners, lobster rolls, steamer clams, mussels and the day's catch of island caught seafood either live or cooked onsite, or packed to travel. All of our lobsters are brought straight from the traps to our store, and C-ray's owner harvests the steamers, mussels and cherrystones himself, by hand, each morning. C-Ray's bakery section is famous for the areas most delicious pies and from-scratch baked goods. Check out our Wild Maine Blueberry or Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Decadent breakfast pastries, and picnic fix in's to take away! We're local fisherman and chef owned and operated! C-Ray is a true hidden gem, located just 3 miles from the Trenton bridge and 7 miles from downtown Bar Harbor. C-ray is no fuss, no frills, just great food served with a heaping helping of Downeast Maine hospitality. We are open late may through october 11 am to dark and stating after september 5th we will be closed on sundays through October 15th and in June we will be closed on Mondays. July and August we are open 7 days a week!

Thank you TripAdvisor for this find! Would have passed it up if I had not seen all the reviews. Our lobster rolls were really yummy! All seating is outdoors. It's pretty much just a little building selling good food.

We drove from Portland to Bar Harbor and passed this place, did a U Turn and came back and we both got lobster dinners, came with sweet corn butter and lobster, two 1 1/2 pound lobsters plus we got their homemade potato salad, a great lunch, we came back two more times, its about 15 minutes out of Bar Harbor but worth the drive

C-Rays is what I consider a quintessential "beach" eatery. Picnic tables outside where you can enjoy the fresh air along with wonderful food. My husband is definitely a lobster person, but C-Ray has some of the best mussels & the lobster chowder was wonderful and full of flavor. We never seem to catch them when there is blueberry pie available as they seem to get eaten by the lunch crowd. The fact it's gone is probably a hint that the pie must be a winner

This eatery has none of the trappings of a usual restaurant ie a flush toilet (the porta Pottie is under a tarp though for those hot days) hot water at the sink to wash hands, or even dishes. What it does have is amazing lobsters. Fresh, perfectly cooked and delicious. Eat a c-ray. You will be happy you did.

Great spot to stop after a long hike in Acadia. We enjoyed the clam chowder. Lobster roll had nice flavor & sauce. Topped it off with a yummy moon pie. Only disappointment was how small the salad was for $4.
