Finally on our 4th day we got the Maine specialty in its entirety. A nicely cooked lobster and our unwomanly ways took over to try and devour this cute little red beast claw by claw and leg by leg. This was a particularly tough task for me as I was having teeth issues but it wasn't gonna stop me. We... More

This was a very enjoyable meal on the other side of the island from Acadia. A little less traveled but well worth the trip.

What a disappointment. Great view of Bass Harbor from the deck completely marred by large freezers and big rig trucks running constantly next door at a lobster dock. What should have been a nice, quiet evening with friends was ruined by the noise. Food is very average -- everything fried and nothing fresh.

I got what I wanted which was calamari. Also had incredibly wonderful escargot with an amazing garlic sauce just like the menu stated. Warm bread was very generous and tasted great. Service was good too. A simple local restaurant that isn't fancy but gets the job done. If you just want simple good sea food with no frills try this... More

Very friendly staff served us huge bowls of clam chowder with a hot loaf of bread. The selection of seafood dishes was excellent with a great choice of nightly specials. The only negative of our visits was we were too full for dessert.

We hate here for lunch and again for dinner. We thought the food was basic but very good and the staff extremely friendly. We enjoyed talking to them about the local fishing industry and they looked at a map with us and gave us some advice for some scenic drives. This was an unpretentious place to eat, kind of like...
