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

We ate at Stewman's in downtown Bar Harbor once for drinks and once for dinner. Unfortunately, I did not keep the slip from either visit. Our first visit was basically for drinks while we were waiting for our room at the Bluenose. We initially sat on their deck but it soon became too cool to do that and we picked... More

Had lunch! Crab cakes and lobster bisque soup was very good. Above average pricing but food was good, Service was OK but a little slow.
