Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich

Whoo-Hoo, the Whale is finally open again! The hub and I had lunch there today. The beautiful & talented Patty was our server. Food was great, as always. HowEVER, their iconic pasta side salad was AWOL from the menu. ? Please, I beg of you, bring it back.

I recommend making the Thirsty Whale Tavern a priority visit during your trip to Bar Harbor! They have a diverse & unique menu that will have you wanting to come back for more! We will definitely return this summer!!

My family has gone here for years , and they've only gotten better and better. It is both a classic pub and family restaurant with fresh, local food. I have a friend that drives two hours for their blackened fish dishes and it one of the very places I ever try a hamburger, because they always cook it perfectly.

Fresh Haddock Fish-n-Chips

Great little spot. I had the deep eddy sipper and quite enjoyed it. The fish and chips were awesome. It was a lot of food and I didn't quite finish it all.

Beef Short Rib Sandwich

We went to Bar Harbor for the first time last summer and this place was one of our favorite places. My husband got the beef short rib sandwhich and it was SO good! We will be back this summer.

Lobster Roll

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Bar Harbor! This was where I had my first Lobster Roll. Friendly staff, great environment, and fresh seafood that makes you want to come back! Will be bringing my fiance here on our honeymoon in May!

Beyond Burger

Not a lot of places in town have a vegetarian burger so I'm incredibly grateful for such a yummy beyond burger. The chipotle sauce that comes with it is top notch!

Southwest Burger

Great burger and friendly staff. We arrived to Bar Harbor during the off season so not many options for food. Luckily the Tavern was open. Had a delicious burger and a margarita! 10/10
