Restaurants

With more than 70 restaurants to choose from in Bar Harbor, everyone can find a flavor—or two or three (maybe more) to savor. Whatever your taste, our member restaurants can help make your event go smoothly. Rehearsal dinner, business luncheon, a celebration with family—your party is special, and Bar Harbor is a special place to host it.
 
You’re in Maine, so you’ll find lobster galore, along with other fresh catches from the sea: scallops, crab, haddock, salmon, clams. And you’ll find them prepared all kinds of ways, from simple to exotic. You can even get lobster ice cream here.
 
But that’s not all. Bar Harbor restaurants know no boundaries, no limits. Diners can feast on flavors from around the world—Asian, Italian, Cuban, Mexican—and on great American regional dishes. Whether you love a juicy steak or stick to a vegetarian menu—you’ll find what you crave.
 
Every café, pub, and eatery has its own special character. Historic panelling and tin ceilings, ultra-modern chic, outdoors under an umbrella, or overlooking Frenchman Bay–there’s a different, and delicious, choice everywhere you go.
