We love Irish pubs. We chose Paddy's in Bar Harbor, expecting a fun, personal experience. We've had better at the Irish pub in the Mohegan Sun casino. There was nothing horrible, but also nothing really outstanding. Our seafood chowder was so-so--the lobster bisque the best of the choices. Our burgers weren't memorable. The service was even spottier than the food.... More

Fun! Fun! Traditional irish drink and fare. Enjoy a lively time at the bar or on the street-side seating. For more intimate dining there is a more quiet section. Love to hear the live music (played some afternoons and evenings throughout the summer).

Had dinner here my last night in town. Menu had a little bit of everything. The lobster bisque was delicious!

They were playing maybe 6 different games including the Browns opener. Really good bisque and chowder as well, cool pub.

Three things stood out: - the mussels in the brown mustard roux were the best I have had anywhere - the lobster was perfectly cooked with generous sides - the service by Katya was excellent And yes it's right by the water...enjoy!

Six came in for a couple of drinks before dinner. Drinks were not well made. Margarita came without salt asked bartender for salt in rim. He was a jerk about it so we left.

After taking a sunset cruise, we walked past Paddy's and decided to have dinner here in honor of our trip to Ireland the year before. The food was very good, but not the traditional Irish food we thought they might have. Part of our party did have Irish coffee which they said was very good.

The fish is one big piece and they cook/fry it perfectly. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed that! The chips (fries) on the other hand were just not a flavor I was fond of... whatever the flavor was. We tried the shrimp/lobster cocktail. I don't think lobster goes well with cocktail sauce but they give you a tail... More

Paddy's, as the name would imply, is an Irish bar and grill directly across from Agamont Park. Ordered a lobster roll and fond it to be the most tasty lobster roll I had all week. We also ordered a steak salad that was excellent. Service was very good as well. Somewhat pricey, but all in all, a nice meal overlooking... More

I had a delicious lobster Caesar salad and my friend had a big hamburger. The lobster is as fresh as it can be. The Caesar salad was delicious. We had an excellent server Matthew who was very attentive. Best of all Paddys is a replica of an Irish pub named for the hotel owner. The views of the harbor and... More
