Fried or Grilled Chicken Salad

This salad is a favorite with us … my husband orders it with the fried chicken and I order it with the grilled chicken. It never disappoints. Delicious both ways .. my mouth waters just thinking about it.❤️

Southwest Burger

This Burger is top of the line ! So juicy and loaded with toppings. I almost.....almost couldn't finish it, but it was too good not to. See you again soon!

Lobster Roll served with New England Clam Chowder or Lobster Bisque

Wife and I stopped in for lunch last summer one day. Our lunch was delicious, hot, and served quickly. The service was excellent, both by the bartender(Mike?) and the waitresses. Would love to visit again someday.

Lobster Roll

Maine was our honeymoon destination and The Thirsty Whale was one of the major highlights of our trip. One of the locals told us about it, said it was their favorite restaurant in the area, and suggested we try it. We are so thankful they did. This was the first lobster roll we ever tried and it ruined all other lobster rolls for us. They just can't compare! Awesome atmosphere! Awesome service! Awesome food! We talk about it all the time and long for the day we can have a return trip! A must do in Bar Harbor!

Blackened Fried Haddock Sandwich

The blackened fried haddock sandwich is the best haddock sandwich I've ever eaten.....Period! I live in New Hampshire and work in the Boston area. I've eaten fried haddock sandwiches all over New England and none compare. Wash this down with one of their blueberry margaritas...... perfection! You cant visit MDI without checking out the Whale!

Blackened Fried Haddock Dinner

The blackened haddock dinner is the stuff of dreams. Seriously. It easily makes my list of top 5 fish dinners I've eaten during my life. If you're seeking classic seafood fare or dishes with a twist, come here. You won't be disappointed!

I had the Freuben sandwich and whale salad. Best sandwich I have ever had. I gave my husband a 1/4 of it and he agreed. The Thirsty Whale is off the hook. Love this place. I'm from ATLANTA but if I am ever in Bar Harbor again I am headed to Thirsty Whale as soon as plane lands.
