The Olive Burger has been a must have item every summer since I was a child, but I think it is no longer worth the awful service. Time and time again, the staff are rude and not at all accommodating to their patrons. Seating people is not rocket science, and yet they repeatedly cannot deal with any kind of wait... More

The good: The veggie burgers were amazing. Everyone who ordered one loved them. The coleslaw was a hit, too. The bad: The prices were high for the quality you get. The ugly: The hamburgers we ordered were undercooked. According to my aunt, who split one with her child, "It was one of those burgers that makes you vow never to... More

Simple, bar with great beer and burgers. We have eaten lunch here the last 2 years. Very comfortable, good for a non-fancy family lunch. The burgers, fries, and chicken sandwiches are all good, and the service is good as well.

We have been here five or six times in the past three years. Been during all the seasons and we enjoy it here , food is ok and not that expensive considering the location. The inside bar area is nice and the patio during the warmer weather is great , service a bit slow out there though .

Have you ever not been able to get lettuce and tomato on a hamburger? Not here. Apparently, "special orders" do not happen here. Had to settle for a gyro, which was good and came with tomato on it.

We arrived in town around 3. Our first 3 choices were preparing for dinner and not serving lunch. But Bar Harbor did not disappoint as far as the food. The server had a bit of an attitude when we asked any questions.

We wanted to see the fall colors. We decided to try Bar Harbor. We all had burgers. The burgers were very good. They came with shoe string fries and coleslaw. We had onion rings as an appetizer. The onion rings were tasty.

We had the traditional burgers, fries, & onion rings, and some tacos too! All were very good! Service was very friendly & atmosphere was, as I remembered it from a visit a few years ago, very casual!
