So this is the place my hubby, son, and I liked the best. They know to do BBQ and they do it right. Everything was awesome, hot, and flavorful. We got their BBQ twice on our trip (once takeout which we got the sampler, and once at the Atlantic Brewing Co.) and loved it both times. My husband says that... More

The food here was great along with the service, but I did not like the fact that it was in a tent. I also did not like the fact that the tables were picnic benches.

We had the chicken breast with potato salad and coleslaw. Also some baked beans cornbread and a small side salad. Drinks or water. We loved eating out at the picnic tables with the cool breeze and Christmas lights. Fair prices and homemade food. A great meal to chill out. If you're hungry there is great ice cream too but get...

We went to the location co-located with the brewery. The staff recommended the brisket which was a new menu item at that time. It was absolutely fabulous. Slow smoked and then seared at the end to give it a good char on the outside. I've had brisket in Texas and this was on par and possibly even better. It melted... More

We can't "do" MDI without a couple of visits to Mainely Meet on Knox Road. The beer is always excellent and the Q is always flavorful, moist, delicious, and plentiful! Get there while the tours are still on, hit the tasting room, then head over to the garden for a righteous pint and great food.

Large portions and very friendly staff. We were there on their last night before closing for the season.

We are from the South and used to a BBQ place almost in every town but we were somewhat surprised when we saw Mainely Meat along our drive into Acadia National Park, especially considering we had just mentioned earlier in our trip that bbq would probably be hard to find up North being that we thought it was a mostly...

We had a long drove to get to Acadia, and arrived around dinnertime with no plans for where to eat. When this BBQ sign came into view, my husband was overcome with the need to turn in -- and it was a great call. We were seated right away, even though it's a pretty small dining room. And everything was... More

I eat here most every time I go to BarHarbor and it almost never disappoints me. They don't get it perfect every time. Sometimes the pulled pork is a little too oily or the ribs are a bit overdone. But like I said earlier for the most part the pork is tender juicy and the ribs fall off the bone.... More
