My wife and I stopped here for lunch and drinks and we loved it. I had the Freuban which tasted great a cup of chowder and for a drink a gimlet. All the food and drinks were well done. My wife and I will definitely be visiting again.

Fresh Haddock Fish-n-Chips

The fish and chips are delicious and cooked to perfection! I upgraded to the sweet potato fries and they were the best I have ever had! We waited twenty minutes for our table but it was so worth it! Best restaurant in town!

Pub Burger

You will not find a better burger for the price. 1/2 lb. meat, hormone free, grass fed, humane raised. I ordered another patty and ate the whole pound with some chowder! 17/10 Will eat again!

Cup of New England Clam Chowder

The absolute best clam chowder in Bar Harbor! On our visit in May we ate at the Thirsty Whale 3 times out of our 6 night stay! I wish the bowl was bigger! Great food and great service!

Fresh Haddock Fish-n-Chips

Thirsty Whale is our destination restaurant each year we visit Bar Harbor. This year was no different than past years...Food was usual....Atmosphere was friendly and service was outstanding. My wife and I enjoy our visits to Thirsty Whale and recommend visiting "where the locals eat" to our family and friends.
