We arrived late for our first night in Bar Harbor and decided to try a restaurant near our hotel. Blaze was crowded, but we were able to find a small table in the front corner next to the bar. Our server was friendly and helped us navigate their menu. We settled on a pizza that was truly excellent. Located right... More

On night one of our stay at Bar Harbor, we went into Blaze for some dinner. There were no open tables except for a two person table that was situated in the middle of the restaurant - seemed like an afterthought. We left because we didn't want to sit in the middle of the restaurant. We returned the next night... More

My wife, a connoisseur of fish tacos, said these were the best she's had. Her caveat - they were a bit spicy and very messy...but totally worth it! I had the chorizo manzana pizza and it was delicious. I was hesitant to order it because it had so many different flavors, but it turned out great. The atmosphere was more... More

Visiting Bar Harbor on Veteran's Day for a weekend and we wanted something different. We asked a local store worker and he suggested "Blaze." He even checked online to see if they were open!!! We were not disappointed! The 5 of us had the beet salad, chili, and 2 pizzas - a veggie one and cheese one with pineapple. I... More

We ate here in early October. The restaurant is a bit drab and unattractive inside. The main courses were ok, but nothing more (chicken thighs glazed with honey mustard and blue cheese burger). However, the starter of pork lollipops was better. The service was a bit disinterested. Overall, a very average experience for the money. There are better choices in... More

Happy to find this little gem open in Bar Harbor's off season. Super friendly server Josh, helpful and right there for anything we needed. Started with a fabulous beet salad to share, huge serving, fresh and delicious. Shared a build your own pizza, top notch ingredients, really excellent. I thought the prices were fair, the place was cute, and the... More

Cruise ships were in town the night we stopped at Blaze, so the place was packed. We lucked into a couple of seats at the bar and ate there. It's a small space with a nice outdoor patio. High noise level, but high energy too. We started with a couple of microbrews and an order of wood-roasted oysters (delicious). Because... More

Busy on a Saturday night but worth the wait for the whole lobster. Everything went well with the local beers on tap.

Not much open in Bar Harbor in November. Went to Blaze after looking at reviews and online menu. Menu item that we went for was not available on the night we went. Apparently this was a special menu. Bill for 2 people was $100 and no where worth the money.

We stopped at Blaze for dinner one night on vacation in Bar Harbor. We felt like something a little different from the 'traditional' east coast type meal and this fit the bill. They offer a wide variety of foods, including wood-fired food, brick oven pizzas and they also have a great selection of craft beer. When we arrived we were... More
