Coming here is a family tradition on every trip to Bar Harbor, and for good reason. Tucked in the back at Atlantic Brewing Company is this location of Mainely Meat. Service is friendly, helpful and more than accommodating, there's a good amount of space with...More

We were looking for lobster on our way north when we drove by this place. What a GREAT stop. This place is AMAZING. We are from the south and we do Barbeque but this place was some of the best we have ever eaten.

Great breakfasts. The blueberry pancakes can't be beat, we love the potatoes, and we always go back for barbecue. It's one of our favorite places to eat when we visit Bar Harbor.

Aside from lobster places, this was one of two restaurants a five-minute drive from my motel. I ordered the pulled-pork sandwich with house side salad, the former being delicious and the latter a cut above the usual house salad. I went back a second night,...More
