As the review implies, the tavern was crowded. The cruise ships were in! But the service, especially by Lynne, was fantastic! The bartenders were entertaining, the waitresses virtually danced food and drink across the room, and everyone was happy. That's right! When was the last...More

We wanted to go somewhere local. It was a meal with friends. Great recommendation. We enjoyed our meal. There were many choices of beverages and I fell in love with a blueberry soda there. The staff was great and we appreciated how friendly there where.

We tried to find a charming place to check local food in Ben Harbor. We had only half a day in town, since we had a stop-over with a cruise ship, and went to "Dog and Pony". I turned out to be a good choice....More

Ok this is a bar- but a really good one. The lobster roll at dinner is REALLY good. And a fair price. The service was friendly and the drinks are good with a fair wine list and a great beer list. They have outside seating...More

The Dog and Pony Tavern is a unique dining and drinking spot that is hidden in a cluster of trees off the beaten path in Bar Harbor. Those who are adventurous enough to find it will enjoy cheap but delicious cocktails and meals in the "treehouse" beer garden, outdoor gazebo bar, or may find themselves at the indoor dining area watching the day's sports game. D 'n P (as the locals call it, short for Dog and Pony) opens at 11:00 am for lunch and drinks and stays open until 1 am! Food is served until 12:00am, but after the tavern closes at 1 am in the summer, a take out window opens, and food is available from 1am 'till approximately 2am. It's a great peaceful place to eat and drink during the day and a happening night spot after the sun sets. In 2010, Dog and Pony was voted #1 Patio Dining and #1 Night Spot! Locally owned and operated, the DnP offers a unique Bar Harbor experience you can't find anywhere else!
