We crashed into Cafè this way because it was the only place suggested by Lonely Planed which opens at 7 am. Since we had to leave at 8.30 with the whale watching tour, we were obliged to go there but were fully repaid with the quality of the food, the kindness of the service and the brightness of the ambience. Definitely the best blueberry muffins I had in my entire trip in New England.
Favorite Dish: Pancakes, blueberry muffins and omelette were great

We sat outside on the lawn, spectacular views of the pond & happenings in Acadia. We arrived at 11:15 for a table at 12:30; by 12:30 lunch was filled. A lot of attractions to see at and around the Pond.
Favorite Dish: The warm popovers were amazing. Lobster everything was wonderful, quiche, salad, roll, stew ...

Located on Route 3 past most of the hotels, this place looks cute from the outside, a real log cabin with a wooden carving of a moose out front. The problem with it was that it's pretty much a tourist trap. The food is just OK, not very good, not terrible, and more expensive than other places in town. Their salad bar was on the skimpy side, which bummed us out because we really like salad bars. They do have a wide variety of things on the menu though, which I guess would be good if you had a large group of people who were picky eaters.
I got the lobster, and it was pretty much the worst lobster I've ever had. It was so small that I doubt it was more than just barely legal size, and it was soft shelled (which they didn't tell me) so there was hardly any meat in it at all--just a lot of water. My daughter got the clam chowder, which she only ate two bites of because it was so salty. All in all it was pretty disappointing.
This restaurant also has a gift shop on the premises, which sells a lot of touristy junk if you like that kind of thing. They have a breakfast buffet in the mornings as well, but after our dinner experience there we weren't about to try that.

The view from the wide windows down across the landscaped lawn to Frenchman Bay is worth the price of the meal. (and the price is a bit high I might add).
This is an Inn or Hotel with an open dining area called Reading Room Restaurant. The decor is 1930s American with cloth table covers and napkins and several forks. The dress is fairly causual for some of the guests but a bit more shirt and tie for the people who just stop in for dinner.
The menu is fairly extensive for an inn: appetizers, soup, salad, main entree of pasta, seafood, beef. (see the website below for details)
The pricing is easy to read; it is rounded to the nearest dollar. (a dinner of soup and sirloin will cost about $40 including tax and tip)
The staff are attentive to your every need and seemed quite happy that we were there.
The food is delivered in layers; salad then soup then entree; just as you finish one part they are ready to serve the next. (they probably do this because the tables are mostly small and do not have room for much plateware)
They have a patio area where you can eat but it was much to cool to sit out there with the bay wind blowing.

The restraunt has all kinds of memoriabilia hanging from the walls, ceiling, bar. A LOT of different licence plates from all over the country. The waitstaff is extreamly friendly, and helpful and the food was outstanding.

Just outside the 'main' part of town - away from most of the tourists. Food was reasonably priced and very good. Lobster prepared 10 ways. A nice selection of local micro-brews. Outstanding cheesecake.
They had a $7.95 early bird special with about 8 entrees listed.
I tried to convince them that they need to serve a Framboise Lambic (raspberry flavored dessert beer that goes really good with chocolate) with their Brownie ala mode. Maybe if enough people ask.......
Favorite Dish: Chilled Stone Crab Claws - really enjoyed this special: Lobster Bisque, Salad, Chilled Stone Crab Claws, baked potato, vegetable, brownie ala mode for $15.95

If you enjoy eating in a party atmostphere, with all kinds of flotsam and jetsum hanging on the walls, rafters and beams, this is the place for you. Located along the main street from the water it became a hangout while the rain came down. Several hours and brews/lobster later the rain stopped and we ventured along the shops of Bar Harbor.
This famous restaurant/bar has a great t shirt collection and other souvenirs in the basement. They are famous also for the designs on the shirts.
I am including some photos from inside Geddy's.
Favorite Dish: This place is packed as it is popular and we had to sit at the bar to eat. Even though they were very busy, they had things under control and the food was perfect. The staff was friendly and polite and everything was very clean.
on the restroom doors....inboards..... outboards you figure out which you are.
that is the kind of place this is.
This is my number one pick of places to visit when I return.

This is a gastro pub offering locally produced, gourmet food and great wine and beer in a warm, cozy, elegant setting. The prices here are very reasonable and the service is always good even when they're very busy, which is often. I've eaten here every time I've been to Bar Harbor and have never been disappointed.
Favorite Dish: It's all very good, but their seafood selections are fantastic. They also have a good variety of vegetarian options and serve local meats and veggies. Wine and beer list is great. Bread is all homemade, too. Note that they are closed during the winter months.

This used to be a great place. I have no idea what happened between the first few times I came here and the present, but it's gone WAY downhill. The menu is very limited, and everything costs three times as much as it should ($9.99 for an omelet?). I might be able to overlook this if it weren't for the fact that the food was TERRIBLE. I'm talking shells in the eggs, English muffins that are barely toasted, cold and with NO butter (and none in available), burned bacon, undercooked potatoes, you get the idea. Add this to some of the most horrendous service I've ever experienced (no cream for the coffee, no fork, no napkins, no coffee refills) and you get a total nightmare. Go downtown instead. There are a bunch of much better (and cheaper) breakfast places!
Favorite Dish: They used to make really good blueberry muffins. No idea what happened to those!

Everything tasted fresh, the smoothies were nothing but fruit, yogurt, and some juice, the kitchen has charlie brown stripes around it, they serve schlitz 16 oz cans (as well as several local beers on tap and several south of the border cervesas in bottles), best margaritas I've ever had, made with fresh lime juice, not a mix. There were old funny album covers around the inside, you can sit outside and sip your sangria on the patio under umbrellas. Friendly people, counterservice only.
You always leave full, but not with that heavy, i just ate a bunch of food that was so bad for me, feeling.
Favorite Dish: The fish taco was amazing, the fish is sauteed in a tequilla citrus marinade. The BarHarbeque is made with homeade BBQ sauce, Gringo's own recipe, and the Hidden Elephant smoothie made for a great breakfast or lunch, it's made with bananas, apple juice, peanut butter, and a little bit of chocolate. But the Jah Juice (banana, ginger, coconut milk, hint of lime, apple juice) is perfect for a hot day. Some people say the margaritas are too tart, but they're used to- or they prefer- sugar mixes, rather than fresh lime juice, most people say they are the best in town.
