This visit not only was the food great, but SO was our waitress. We had a bit of an issue the last time with the waiter. We've eaten here many times as we stay at a hotel across the street when in Bar Harbor. Everything...More

We don't mind paying for great food, but this food was ok at best. Did like the pretzel as the bread. Very tasty.

I've eaten at this restaurant on two separate visits to Bar Harbor, it's decent food, but not the greatest show on earth. The service is good, the pretzel they always give is great (hint: it needs more salt), and the food is fine. I usually...More

My wife and I have eaten at Jack Russell's a number of times on previous trips to Bar Harbor and were surprised by the recent mediocre reviews on TripAdvisor. But, we went tonight to Jack Russell's anyway and we're glad we did. I had the...More

My lobster dinner was good but the white wine overwhelmed the butter they called drawn. My husband liked his meal and silly us, we went to the steak house and didn't get steak. Hopefully that's better.

Since we were staying across the street at The Atlantic Oceanside Hotel and were exhausted from a long 6+ hour drive we decided to walk over to Jack Russell's for drinks and dinner. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server brought us menus and...More

My husband and I had dinner here and both agreed it was the worst meal we have ever eaten, anywhere. The lobster tasted like rubber, the vegetables and potatoes were cold and soggy, the portions were tiny and everything was expensive. The beer was good...More

Nicola, We're sorry you had a bad experience at Jack Russell's. We buy all of our lobster fresh from Beals in Southwest Harbor and I don't know why you didn't enjoy it. We buy it fresh almost every day, and lobster has been at all...More

We stopped here because they had a dog-friendly advert in the local magazine and we had our doggy with us. We were told they weren't serving at those tables, however (still too early in the season, I guess), so it didn't work out for us....More
