Ordered blueberry pancake. It was so big that we decided to share it. For that they charged is plate charge, so basically we ended up paying almost $5 for one pancake. The taste was not bad.

It says it on the menu. We ask that you not share pancakes. If you go into town you will pay 7.50 for a smaller pancake if not more and if you share you will be charged a plate charge.

My wife and I had supper here and it was awesome! Good quality and huge portions. Some of the best ribs I've had in a long time. Will be back tomorrow!

We went on the Beer Tour at Atlantic Brewing Company. Mainely Meats is on the same grounds. We had a late lunch there after the tour. We were impressed so we went back again for dinner.

Let me know the day and who the server was that waited on you so I can speak to them. But very unprofessional to mention another resturaunt so I will ask this to be taken down. This is a first for us.

We didn't want to go into Bar Harbor and the crowd so after reading reviews of this BBQ, we decided to give it a try. It was conveniently located to the Best Western too. We shared a full rack of ribs along with potato salad,...More

We went here over labor day weekend and we loved the food. There was plenty of it as well. We had great service and believe me they were very busy. If you love BBQ, I highly recommend Mainely Meat.

Family friendly, Breakfast,lunch and dinner. We have a huge outdoor patio that is very dog friendly. We have corn hole, a big Jenga, and a hook and ring game outside. plenty of parking. Heaters outside for the cooler weather. Food is smoked everyday on sight. This is a family owned business. Although we are related to the Mainely Meat BBQ in Town Hill we are separate businesses and owner. The owners are almost always on premise either cooking or helping out front. Please say hi. We hope you enjoy your visit with us.
