The Terrace Grille at the Bar Harbor Inn affords out-doors dining with a breathtaking view. The food and service were wonderful. Highly recommend it for lunch.

I would not recommend eating here. Come for a drink and the view and then eat else where. We were told the kitchen was closing and we must order... It was only 7 pm ish. We got our food and then were told last call for drinks and we would have to finish. They should have offered to move us... More

The scenery can't even make up for the food. It was so bad. It started with the Bloody Mary. They must use the cheapest vodka possible. The olives were clearly canned.. small, tasteless, mushy. The shrimp garnish tasted old and bad. Next came the cheese plate. Cheeses one could buy from the grocery store... cabot, sargento, cracker barrel... I would... More

We were celebrating my birthday and decided to eat at the Terrace Grill instead of The Reading Room. It was less formal, it had an outside terrace overlooking the water and we liked the menu better. It didn't disappoint. I had the Seafood stew which was wonderful. The service was excellent. We didn't feel rushed and the food came out... More

This place is right on the water and probably the best atmosphere of any restaurant in all of Bar Harbor. Our food was good more like four stars but the staff was fantastic as the waitress and manager took care of a food issue that we had and more than accommodated us. This is definitely a top 10 restaurant in... More

Had a nice dinner outside. Beautiful evening to be eating on the shore, watching the boats. The crab quesadilla was outstanding. We both had the haddock, which was ok, pretty bland, but probably what you would expect from haddock. The server was very nice.

We have stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn several times over the years and the Terrace Grille is one of our favorite places to eat because of the consistency good quality of food and service. There are several "pop up" restaurants in Bar Harbor that look great but aren't as good as they look. When you are on vacation, the... More

This is our favorite place to eat in Bar Harbor. The outside seating area is right on the water so that you can see all the boats coming and going. It is just so pleasant. The food is excellent with a varied menu. On our last visit we had family with us. My nephew, from the deep south, had his... More
