Disappointed lunch and beer. Felt too touristy with chips stale with seafood dip. Friend clams batter way too heavy. Craft beer ok and service ok. Much better choices in bar harbor

The lobster and crab rolls are awesome! Sweet potatoes fries and blueberry ice cream are must haves. Rob is the best, most helpful waiter around!
