Fresh Haddock Fish-n-Chips

The Haddock was hands down the best I've had! I've had Haddock at several Maine restaurants and the one at the Thirsty Whale cannot be best! As a frequent tourist to Bar Harbor, I always stop in a minimum of 2 times for the Haddock and Clam Chowder, chased down with an ice cold beer! The affordable pricing is the icing on the cake. If you haven't been, do yourself a favor and go as soon as you can! You won't regret it!

Fried Maine Whole Belly Clams

The fried whole belly clams are fantastic. We always make sure to go to the Thirsty Whale anytime we vacation in Bar Harbor.

Blackened Haddock Salad

We loved the food, tried a sampler with the shrimp, clam, lobster roll and the fish sandwich was amazing. We sat in the beer garden and the waitress was amazing, friendly accommodating and attentive!!

Lobster Roll served with Chowder or Bisque

Highly recommend them for drinks & food. I know that lobster rolls are a dime a dozen in Maine. But, theirs stands out. The lobster roll was delicious. It was packed with lots of lobster that was extremely fresh & the mayo wasn't overpowering like it is at some places. The Chowder was some of the best chowder I've ever had. It was very hearty and warm on a cool day. I paired my meal with the Allagash White Ale which was perfect. The food isn't the only thing that's great. The staff and service were amazing as well. We were greeted right away and our food followed very soon after ordering. All around a great experience. I'll be back for sure!!!

Lobster Roll served with Chowder or Bisque

Highly recommend the Lobster Roll and Clam Cowder at the Thirsty Whale! It was the best we had while in Maine and fairly priced! I also recommend adding the garlic bread. Everything was so delicious!!

Fried Maine Whole Belly Clams

The Thirsty Whale did not dissappoint once again!!!!! Started with Blueberry Margaritas, then had the Fried Haddock Sandwich and the Whole Belly Clam Dinner. Not only was the food AMAZING, but the service from Dan our waiter was EXCELLENT.
