This was a little hard to find, since it is down a side street. Also, when we were there it was extremely difficult to find a place to park. Service was excellent, and they have a very varied menu.

We feasted on lobster stew, lobster melt (grilled cheese with lobster) and lobster roll. We ate here for lunch two days in a row and ordered the same foods both times!! Succulent and plentiful lobster in each dish. Highly recommend!

We ate dinner at this restaurant the last time we visited Bar Harbor. This time we ate lunch and we were not disappointed. The food was great and the service was terrific even though they were very busy with a large group.

Lobster roll was not the best and not a very big portion for the price. French fries were over cooked. Waitress seemed inconvenienced by our being there. Skip this place and go to the Dog and Pony across the street. The food is 100 times...More

I believe they do. They definitely will take a call ahead giving you an estimated wait time when you call.
