Came here for lunch after some morning activities on the island. Me and my gf had the fish tacos. Sure you can have fish tacos in most places but the amount of fish was incredible. Also there was the perfect amount of spice to make them jerk style. The service was good and I would definitely eat here again if I was in Bar Harbor.

Chose this restaurant for our anniversary dinner because of the reviews. How sad. We started off the meal with two cocktails which were so poor we knew we might be in trouble. The Dijon Mussels were okay; the Oysters Rockefeller were amazing. The "old school " restaurant vibe, the unimaginative menu, the prompt but distant service, and the fact that we only liked one out of four items ordered drove us to close out the tab and complete our meal somewhere more special.

We ate at a lot of restaurants on our week-long vacation, and this was our best meal. The chef accommodated my request to serve the shrimp on rice/veggie instead of pasta, and it was delectable! My husband really enjoyed his chicken pasta dish. Both were served hot and fresh -- our server was wonderful and attentive, but not hovering. I know that restaurants have bad days, as do we all, but we hit them on a great night and had a really delicious, enjoyable meal. I'm considering this a fine-dining establishment, though of course it's in a tourist town so no one really dresses up -- but it's not a pub-type or bar-type place. Can highly recommend!

Sat upstairs at the quaint little bar for happy hour which runs 3-6pm. Ordered s blueberry lemonade drink with vodka which was berry good. Even had wild Maine blueberries. Aldo shared crab stuffed mushrooms with a friend. They give you 8 delicious pieces. Very nice!

Lobster bisque or clam chowder, 1.25 lb lobster, wild rice and asparagus, how classy is that. A reasonable price and cloth napkins to boot. Katie our waitress was a dear and the locals eating at the table next were a hoot.
