Great outside eating and fun pictures to be had! Order onion rings and the BLT or the hamburger and you will be full. Good meal and good people! Worth the wait and the drive. The Averill House Vineyard crew approves.

Ruth and Wimpy's is conveniently​ located on RT. 1. I had the salmon. It was tasty even though it wasn't thoroughly cooked. The rice was seasoned perfectly. Others in our party had shellfish which they totally enjoyed. Portions were generous.

A great rusticated Maine restaurant where you can get a reasonably priced lobsta dinner and the best homemade pie anywhere. The personnel are always great and Wimpy is a neat guy. I love it there. No trip to Bar Harbor is complete without a stop at Ruth & Wimpy's (and I haven't got a dime in this).
