Bar Harbor Restaurant Review

: Lobster rolls in multiple permutations headline at this sleek, open restaurant at the base of the 400 Fairview building. Dig into the East Coast-inspired seafood at one of the few tables inhabiting the metal-lined dining area, or in a seat that opens up on the patio when the weather improves. The menu is rounded out with lobster salad, steamed clams, clam dip and lobster mac and cheese, and in a small nod to the location, Dungeness crab rolls are also available. Desserts, of course, are that down east classic: whoopie pies. Cocktails bear Maine-inspired names, draft beers rotate often and the short wine list is composed to help make the seafood shine.
