Definitely worth the visit and make sure to sit outside. This restaurant is down behind the police/fire station. The food was good and the service fantastic.

We were recommended this place by a local. I got the lobster roll and tots. Both were excellent. Worth a stop if in the Bar Harbor area.

Service was nice and the place is nice, but the food was just ok. We had a variety of things (sandwiches, and such) and none of us were impressed. Nachos were OK. Probably a good place if you are looking for a nice place to...More

Good drinks, good atmosphere, reasonably priced, variety of options. My favorite cider is even on tap here- which is scarce! Great spot to hit in Bar Harbor

Great lobster rolls but it seemed the rolls had more meat in them than the lazy lobster dinner for the price. Cute outdoor casual seating with an outdoor bar.

Our first stop on a food tour of Bar Harbor Had a sample of their lobster roll. Very good, meat is mixed with a little bit of mayo on a toaster hot dog bun. We dined outdoors and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

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!
