After touring Acadia National Park, we stopped by Stewman's for a bite to eat. We were seated in a covered area with a nice view of the water. Service was excellent and the lobster rolls were superb.

Everything in Bar Harbor is expensive (except for t-shirts and sweatshirts) but you get what you pay for here. I ordered a select lobster (2.5 lbs). It was perfectly cooked and exactly as it should be. It came with corn on the cob. She ordered...More

We were just stopping in for a drink and ended up staying for dinner. After multiple Blueberry Mojitos, we had a nice dinner. Our waiter was so fun. Great experience.

Nice view - bad food. Tough (how does that happen?) haddock, tepid temp on all four entrees. Great for just a drink - not the food! Too many good places in Bar Harbor to waste time here.

The location is great and provides wonderful outdoor dining. The lobster seemed overpriced and a lot of water came out when cracked. Fried shrimp and scallops were good.

Thank you for visiting Stewman's. Glad you enjoyed the shrimp and scallops. Sometimes the water issue does happen with the soft-shelled lobsters and we do what we can to prevent that from happening. Sorry for that happening though

Stewman's is always busy. The reason is simple: great location and good food. The seafood is fresh and you can sit practically in the bay...in fact it is on a dock. It's pricey, but worth a splurge.

Had a wonderful lobster dinner! Right on the Harbor while we watched the boats!! It is located in the middle of town with plenty of seating and harbor ambience, lobster pots and wood burning fires!!

Five out of the eight of us ordered the boiled dinner and it was fine. Burgers were ok. But everything took forever to receive, waitress was forgetful and it felt like they were grossly understaffed in both the kitchen and the floor.

We ate here on our first night in Bar Harbor. We sat on the patio overlooking the harbor. The lobster was delicious--I got the typical pound and a quarter, and my husband got a 3.5 pounder---and so was the grilled asparagus. Our server, Miguel, was...More

The location is great as the wharf sits over the water...a perfect ocean front setting. They offered uncovered outdoor seating, covered open air seating, or traditional indoor dining. The food was very good, and the service was also very good, the restaurant & restrooms were...More
