We went for ice cream after a lunch and it was excellent. We wanted to come back for what looked like amazing blueberry pie, but we couldn't find parking because of a festival going on. Great place and would definitely go back

There is simply no comparison of blueberry pie anywhere! Packed full of blueberries and wonderfully flavored! Mrs. Francis was so nice… For sure will come back!

First, I would like to start by emphasizing the amazing service and family style atmosphere. We were greeted right from the start and were welcomed to a seat. This family owned restaurant is a must see if you are on Mount Desert Island at all....More

My husband and I spent four days in Southwest Harbor and discovered Quietside the second night. We ate there from then on. Lovely, helpful staff and delicious food! The pies are to die for! Try the blueberry or key lime! Highly recommend!

Was so good that after stopping in for a slice, brought a whole one back to our rental. Yum. Service surprisingly pleasant and efficient although our server was seasonal.

We stopped here only for an ice cream cone. Lots of choices, soft serve and "regular." The staff was friendly and the ice cream portions were generous.
