This is the best steakhouse in America! The first time I went to jack russels I was a teenager and got the fillet Mignon with asparagus and red mashed potatoes. Although they didn't have the potatoes on the menu (only fries or baked) it was a experience all over again. If I could eat here everyday I would! The steak... More

Jack Russell's is a great year round dining option in Bar Harbor. They specialize in steak, but their seafood and chicken options are also excellent. An excellent option for both couples and large groups. Everyone in our large family had a great time!

We absolutely loved being able to dine outside. The food was incredible. My steak cooked to perfection. We were drawn to the place as we own a Jack Russell, and other reviews also helped! Definitely will visit again the next time we're up in Bar Harbor.

We were looking for a break from the seafood fare in Bar Harbor and totally thrilled that we chose Jack Russell's to indulge in one of the best Filet Mignon's we ever had. We sat upstairs which felt like we were sitting in someone's home, and actually loved the atmosphere. Excellent service. Located across the street from the Atlantic Oceanside... More

We called these guys 30 minutes before they closed and asked if they had lobster and if we could still come and dine in. They said absolutely. We had their scallops and filet appetizer and it was to die for! We had lazy lobster for entree and it was wonderful. Our grandson enjoyed the chicken fingers and fries and especially... More

Had the filet one day and a their hamburger the next visit. One extreme to the other and both were delicious. Their blueberry ,ice cream, whip cream desert was a nice way to finish a meal. Come at 4:00 when they open and it is of course like private dining but come at 5:00 or 6:00 and there is the... More

Service started out slow but picked up. Steak was okay but Lobster was very good. Bar took too long for drinks. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. There was one waitress tho that was asked several times by different patrons to turn the tv channel to the World Series game. She kept saying it wasn't on yet but one... More

Took a risk going here after reading recent bad or mediocre reviews. We were very happy with our steaks and burgers though. The French fries and the fresh garden salads were really good too. Large portions. Nice surprise of hot pretzels and mustard were brought to the table in advance of our meal.

Very nice place, just outside of Bar Harbor. Reasonable prices, good food and good beer. The only thing is that we did not consider it a real steakhouse, for that we think the offered steaks are too few, however the quality was good.

Had reservations for a large group, they were ready for us. The waitress was very nice, but almost everyone had something wrong with their order. My fish and chips was so-so, the fries were bland and the fish was bland. When full the restaurant is crowded, the food is very expensive for what you get.
