Stopped here for lunch and had a great experience. Beautiful weather, so we were able to sit outside, where there's a great view. It's very nice and relaxed. I had a shrimp sandwich, which was delicious, and my friend asked about a meal that was normally only offered at dinner - but the waitress asked the cook and they still... More

We went there on our first night in town, the service was excellent. While the prices were a little above average the food was great.

Awesome view (even at low, scrungy-looking) tide, great service to no end (though the waiter was friendly enough until the check was delivered). The Maine lobster was okay. But, we are Mississippi Gulf Coast travelers prefer our own seafood (shrimp, crabs, crawfish, oysters) - now - so much over the much-heralded Maine lobster.

and waited in line, turns out we could have gotten reservations but we never needed to before. Waited and waited, it became 6PM and the early bird special was over and we never got seated. Therefore, we weren't entitled to the early bird pricing, so we left. Never happened to us before and we probably won't be back again.

We were there the middle of October, a lot of the restaurants were closing for the season. When we arrived the line was long but the wait was short. They had very good service and the food was very good. My husband had the lobster and I had the salmon. Both were very good. The staff was very pleasant and... More

This was one of the best dinners we had during our ten days in Maine/ NE Canada. Even though they were very busy, and we didn't have reservations, we were seated immediately, after a quick walk outside to access the lower level dining room. My husband had lobster stew which was thick and creamy and full of lobster,followed by an... More

This restaurant is about 4 km from downtown Bar Harbour, located right at waterside and the scenery is wonderful. The evening of our visit it was a very busy place. Service was courteous, friendly, fast and efficient. Our meals were flavourful, nicely portioned well prepared and presented, and prices were quite reasonable. It came recommended to us by the hotel... More

This restaurant is extremely popular with locals and tourists alike, as the lines testify. It is right on the water, and the view from the lower dining room is wonderful. Since it was our next to last day in Maine, and we hadn't had any lobster yet, my husband and I got the early bird lobster special. It was fun... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the people at our hotel and it was one of the best meals we had on our whole trip. It was our last night in Maine and I wanted lobster. We both had the boiled lobster and it turned out to be a great choice. The price is quite reasonable, the service is... More
