We enjoyed a lunch here, with a party of 6 trying various items from the menu. All the food was good, and the service was excellent. Easy walking distance from our hotel.

Didn't know what to expect. Everyone loved their food. The staff was friendly and very helpful to clueless Ohio travelers. We were their at lunch. I believe the evening may be a bit different. Steak and cheese sub was fantastic.

We dined outside as I enjoyed my first lobster roll. My wife really liked her veggie and humus burger. The service was great, the beer selection rather unique. A little out of the way but worth it!

I had a mixed experience for my dinner here. We ordered two appetizers and two entrees. The apps were delicious! However, the entrees were very mediocre. We started with the Thai wings and the cheese curds- they were both super tasty. For the main meal...More

Great beers. Too noisy, but not obnoxiously so. Lobster rolls, lobster mac n cheese, and good pub food. Only place with food after 10p.

The Dog and Pony Tavern is a unique dining and drinking spot that is hidden in a cluster of trees off the beaten path in Bar Harbor. Those who are adventurous enough to find it will enjoy cheap but delicious cocktails and meals in the "treehouse" beer garden, outdoor gazebo bar, or may find themselves at the indoor dining area watching the day's sports game. D 'n P (as the locals call it, short for Dog and Pony) opens at 11:00 am for lunch and drinks and stays open until 1 am! Food is served until 12:00am, but after the tavern closes at 1 am in the summer, a take out window opens, and food is available from 1am 'till approximately 2am. It's a great peaceful place to eat and drink during the day and a happening night spot after the sun sets. In 2010, Dog and Pony was voted #1 Patio Dining and #1 Night Spot! Locally owned and operated, the DnP offers a unique Bar Harbor experience you can't find anywhere else!
