Stopped for lunch before we left Bar Harbor. We had clam chowder, lobster roll, and mussels. The clam chowder and mussels were good, lobster roll ok.

We didn't know what to expect when we decided to drop in for lunch, while walking downtown Bar Harbor. Sunshine and a picture view of this beautiful harbor is sure to set us up for a good experience. The waitress was a delight; and the oysters seemed to be the best I ever had (of hundreds of times). My lobster... More

On our last night in Bar Harbor, a few days before the summer season started, we heard hotel staff excitedly saying that the Fish House was now open! So we went at the end of the dinner rush (restaurants close EARLY in BH, but I do live in NYC). It was cold and rainy, we sat downstairs at the bar.... More

We had a late lunch here between late April to early May 2017. I wanted a taste of lobster so I ordered the $37.00 plate with lobster pieces, potatoes and corn. I was very disappointed and will not consider a return visit. The small plate of lobster and butter contained about eight pieces of something that didn't taste like lobster... More

I have to be honest. The only reason we went there the first time was because it was listed as a dog friendly restaurant. The food was good and the waiter was great. Because it was very windy, there were no people outside on the deck and we had no problem having our dog with us. For those reasons, we... More

We went there for dinner and were never seated. Before we left our hotel the staff called and we were told there were tables available. We arrived in less than 10 minutes and there was suddenly a long wait, with approximately 20-25 people ahead of us. [I find that hard to believe that they filled up in 10 minutes.] They... More

Very casual little restaurant, nice place to crack open a lobster, if you can!! The lobsters are hard shell right now, very difficult to break through, but sweet and tasty meat once you got in! The dinner was served with small red potatoes, which were overcooked and tasteless and corn which was left uneaten, awful taste. The corn bread was... More

Ambiance was great of course. Services is fantastic and courteous. We had a beer and a couple of appetizers (very expensive and very small portions). So, just get a couple of beer and keep waking beautiful Bar Harbor.

Had dinner there with spouse during visit to Bar Harbor. Waitress was friendly. I had fried clams and thought the taste was a bit off. Fries were of the standard food service variety. My wife had the baked stuffed haddock which she said was good. For tourists, the view is obviously good.

Went for dinner, ambiance left a little to be desired but the lazy lobster and seafood grill were awesome. A little more than I wanted to spend but Bar Harbor is a tourist town. The service was friendly and quick even though we showed up close to closing time!

Thank Kerri J
