Lobster was good as was the slaw. However the shrimp are small popcorn with two much breaking with no taste. The onion rings were battered with same coating and we could not eat them. Service personnel were friendly but they they needed more help.

Had dinner at Ruth and Wimpys in Hancock Maine tonight. Great meal reasonably priced and the service was perfect. Have eaten in Bar Harbor a number of times and have not been this impressed. Seafood fresh and cooked perfectly. I will return.

We stopped and had dinner at Ruth and Wimpy's Kitchen. They had a wide selection of Maine favorite lobster and other foods such as sandwiches and burgers. Enough to please even the pickiest of eaters.

A friend suggested this place so we tried it. It seemed like a popular place. The food was ok, service was good but I wouldn't visit again.

I came here as the hotel I am staying at recommended it. I never leave bad reviews, but this place deserves such. Fried clams - tasteless and not cleaned well. Lobster stew - pieces of lobster in hot milk Lobster roll - unseasoned/tasteless lobster pieces...More

They do the basics well, but don't go for seafood or creative dishes, they are inedible. They all seem ttyl take turns greeting and seating. Bring your patience add low expectations.
