Best scallops I have ever had. Great meal sitting outside at a quiet table under trees. We loved our waitress but the hostess was odd.

Nice restuarant, very short menu, not many choices. The food was very good but very small plate. If you karnibor or very hungry, dont go there. But, I have to tell, small plate, but delicious

They don't use open table or resty so you have to get on the website or call but its worth it. A limited menu but diverse choices and really great results from the kitchen. We would definitely revisit when next we are in Acadia.

I made reservations for me and my wife a couple of weeks in advance which I recommend because their first floor only has 11 tables. I understand there are 5 outside tables and 10 upstairs. Our window table was waiting for us for our 7...More

This restaurant exceeded all expectations! Definitely make a reservation if you want to go, unless you want to take a chance on missing some of the best food Bar Harbor has to offer. We had the lobster tacos, watermelon and heirloom tomato salad, scallops and...More
