We arrived late in Bar Harbor and needed something to eat. Not many choices at 10p but in speaking to a local he suggested the Mad Hatter Pub because they served food until 1a. We had a lot of fun with the local crowd and the food was very good!

This bar was wonderful for watching sports on TV. We couldn't find another spot to watch an MLB game during the playoffs. Everyone was extremely friendly! The lobster pizza was pretty good too!

We were there a month before Memorial day. Many places were closed. This place was just a bar in town popular with the locals. We had very low expectations when we walked in. It turned out that the food, burgers & salads were very good. Our waitress was from Buffalo and she remembered everyone's order (and our names too) without... More

We arrived during their busiest time (we tried to make reservations for 8, but we were told that they didn't take reservations for more than 6). So the 8 of us arrived during their busy time, but they made arrangements for us. The drinks were amazing and food, even more so!

Great food, good people, family friendly during the day, games for the kids, couches, tables for seated dining in the room away from the bar, unique menu. We truly live going here.
