We took our 6 year old for dinner during a recent family vacation. Since it was a little outside the main touristy Bar Harbor area it was not overly crowded and we had no issues getting a reservation. My husband had the surf/turf and I had one if their specials - both of which were very good. They also had a good children's menu. It was a nice relaxing change to the other overly busy places - we would definitely go back!

Every dinner entree was enough to feed two people. The flavor was wonderful and the staff very attentive.

Breakfast with our Blue Nose Inn stay: cold or empty platters in which the servers were not interested in refilling; lukewarm bitter coffee. Stood outside freezing until the servers felt like opening the door.

This is review is not based on food. My wife and I wanted to have some drinks and enjoy the view. This was at 6:30 PM and more than half of the restaurant was empty. The staff didn't allow us to sit by the window and insisted on sitting by the bar !! They said all the tables were reserved. What bs policy is this? They have a customer who was at the door but they wouldn't let me sit as they had reservations ? This was on Friday evening !! We just left the place in disgust.

My husband had the Chefs special and I had a surf and turf kind of entree. Honestly the food was decent but not remarkable. The view was incredible!
