Right on the water, two decks of outside seating. Friendly staff, quick service, good steamed clams. Avoid crab cakes as they are nothing special. I had much better ones in Michigan. Suggestion come for lunch, enjoy the view and the weather. Most of the seating are picnic style tables with benches.

Went for lunch with family and friends. Saw a loon right next to us on the water. Was very entertaining to watch. Had a great lunch!! Would definitely come back again. Service and food was great. Our waiter went above and beyond to help with selections.

Came here for a lunch on the outside deck on a cloudy day. Unfortunately a sudden shower appeared but the servers expertly ushered everyone & their food inside. Everything went great and not a French fry got soggy,

We had great service and good views. It was extremely hot and sunny so happy that we decided to sit inside make sure you factor that into account when you decide where to sit. I don't eat seafood or fish so the menu was a bit limited for me but found something, had the burger. My husband loved it and... More

We had our first lobster rolls here. And they were great.The service was outstanding ,as was the local beer.You can see what was left of the lobster roll in the picture. If it was not so far away we would be going there every week! The lobster rolls were a little pricey but it was worth it.

This is where to get a whole Maine lobster dinner. The whole lobster comes with an ear of corn, mussels, and potatoes, called the "Lobster Experience." Although everyone seems to have opinions about what part of the lobster is best, I found the tail to be one of the largest and tastiest tail I had ever eaten. At $37 for... More

During our 5 day stay in Bar Harbor, my 27 year old daughter and I ate here twice. Our waitress on both visits was great. We were well informed about specials and all other menu items. We were happy with the cocktail recommendations that we were told about. Great outdoor atmosphere. If it's windy you can sit inside and still... More

We did not realize that when the ships come in, the town goes tourist trap. This place was decent. We did like the coastal seafood dip, the dip and the chips were yummy. Hubby had to ask twice for his chowder but he said it was good, We shared a fish sandwich and it was okay. It seemed a little... More

First time in Maine, so I don't really have much to compare it to, but i got the biggest damn lobster I have seen. I walked in and order the biggest one they had. The lady looked at me like I was crazy, it must have been expensive, but I was expected it to be expensive so I didn't notice.... More
