Never miss a visit to Mainly Meats for ice cream. All kind of varieties and favors. As for the restaurant part of the establishment, we weren't blown away.. Just okay.

Decent little place by the main highway a few miles out of Bar Harbor. Friendly atmosphere and tasty range of meat dishes, reasonably priced.

We literally closed the place. We were there for dinner, the last weekend they were open. The food and beverages were good. The staff was friendly, as usual.

I didn't come to Maine to sample BBQ, but after more than enough lobster it was a welcome treat. I tried the pulled pork sandwich. It was served on Texas toast with the sauces on the side in bottles. The pulled pork was moist and well flavored. The sauce was tasty and I appreciated putting it on the sandwich. The... More

We had lobster dinners here and they were excellent! The lobsters were fresh, cracked for our convenience and the side dishes were as good and filling as the lobsters. Loved the baked beans. The service was very prompt and efficient. We would definitely eat here again.

We ate here late in the season but I doubt that had anything to do with the quality of the food. Some people have complained about the service but we had no issues with the service or the time it took for the food to be delivered. That's the end of positive things I can say. We had the sampler... More

The food was good. It is by no means a fancy place. Very busy and had to wait but the food came out quickly after we placed our orders.

to make pancakes like Mainely Meat served, got the Wymans blueberries, flour, eggs, and a few other tidbits. Alas, even with cutting myself a little slack, I came nowhere near Mainely Meat's breakfast treat. I could not get even half of the blueberries in each pancake. Thank heavens my daughter visited and had never tasted REAL blueberry pancakes since she... More

We went here for lunch/dinner and it was okay BBQ. They gave us plenty of food, but it lacked the 'smoke' flavor you find at other BBQ places. The staff was very friendly and the prices were reasonable.

We stopped for breakfast on our way to Acadia National Park and were well satisfied. The lobster omelet was outstanding.
