There is no simple answer to this question. Bar Harbor has some of Maine and New England’s best restaurants, and if the locals aren’t talking about weather, they are talking about food. Fresh seafood, local farm-grown produce, omnivore or herbivore, the common denominator is quality.
 
With the fishing fleet often landing your entree at the dock that day, you would be hard pressed to find fresher seafood anywhere than on the Maine coast. Our succulent Maine lobster is the reason many travel to Bar Harbor, and you may want to eat it every day, but there is also pub fare, flavors from around the world, dining al fresco or at elegant cloth-covered tables, and farm-fresh regional cuisine. You’d need more than a summer to try all Bar Harbor’s excellent dining choices, but at least there are three meals a day, so get started sampling Bar Harbor’s fare at a bustling breakfast spot, then make your choices for lunch and dinner. Dietary restrictions, health-conscious or seeking the most extravagant foodie fare? We have you covered.
 
Then, when the sun goes down, or maybe even before, don’t forget cocktails. Sip and people-watch at a street-side cafe, relax with some soft music as the sun goes down, or hang with the crowd at a lively local bar.
 
Morning till night, all our tempting options are sure to keep you well-fed.
