Just spent three days in Bar Harbor/Acadia NP. Mainely Meat BBQ was the best meal of our trip and easily the best value. This is some of the best Pork BBQ I've eaten anywhere, including any of the southern states. Moist and very tender-- clearly...More

Ordered the pulled pork sandwich, and it was delicious. Staff was very polite and gave suggestions on what they thought was good. My son absolutely loved the ice cream for dessert!

A one man band playing at noon. Pulled pork was great, but the half chicken wad under cooked. Could have sent it back, but there was more than enough to eat. Friendly, quick service.

Very, very good we were looking for some old Fashion barbecue. We found it, there were local beers and a brewery outback. All-around a good meal.
