The room temperature was VERY cool
and a vent directly above us blew very cold air on us all during our stay. We asked the waitress several times if the temperature could be lowered but she said that she couldn't because there were too many people there ( the restaurant was less than 1/4 full and it was 8:30 PM with the group thinning. We finally went to our car ant put on jackets to eat our meal. It was very unpleasant surroundings and took away some of the joy of our celebration. The food was great but the atmosphere was chilly!!!!!"

Waiter seemed to be rushing us so
he could get another table turned. The kitchen was slow. Poorly cooked rare steak - it came medium well done on an ice cold plate. I sent it back. Another ice cold plate with a properly cooked steak followed 7 minutes later. Portions of other's meals were diminutive. Serving hash browns with steak that costs 38.00 a plate is a travesty. Vegetables were over cooked. Salad was undersized and some of the lettuce was going bad. It was slimy and brown in places."

We had encrusted walleye, sobu Ahi
Tuna, and shrimp scampi and all were excellent. We eat out often in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and this compares to any of our better dining experiences. Would definitely recommend. Our Waitress, Grace, was exceptional!"

An excellent restaurant with great
food. It has a combination of old favorites, as well as new dishes to make sure there is something to explore. They are always deliciously executed and served with a friendly smile. There is also an outdoor area for those who prefer more traditional bar food. I would recommend it to anyone who is in the area."

The experience at Bar Harbor was
very good. The atmosphere was vibrant the view was excellent and the food was good. The decore fit the location and looked like it had been updated very recently. A nice outdoor patio on a channel from Gull Lake. A very nice scene. Would recommend it to anyone."

We recently dined at the renewed
Bar Harbor Restaurant in Lake Shore. Great surprise - the place is awesome. Service and food superb. We all ate something different and shared bites - without failure each entree was really, really good. We will return!"

The view of the lake is nice.
This is clearly a fine dining restaurant. The service and the food was top of the line."

Everything was wonderful, except
the booth we sat at was very cold."

Unfortunately the food that was
served was nothing special. The salmon was cold, the prime rib was well done, and the Tuna was not flavorful. However the scallops were very good. The atmosphere is always very nice at Bar Harbor. But we were disappointed in the food."

We made reservations for our
Anniversary. We were placed in the bar side--which is ok because we are younger and can handle the loud energetic crowd. Beautiful scenic view of the lake/boats. Food was superb! It did take a really long time but our waitress was very clear about that. Fantastic service."

Had a wonderful time. Outdoor
water and people watching pre dinner was great. Piano music hit the spot and set the mood for dining. Food was very good."

Friendly staff, exceptional food,
great view. Had our anniversary dinner, great drinks, lobster was fabulous, volcano brownie sundae was luscious to top the whole meal off. Will be back. Hopefully when it is not raining to sit out on the patio! Would love to go when the fire pit is going would be a beautiful view over the lake."

We have gone to many fine dinning
establishments but this was the first to put sheets of paper over their liens' pretty tacky! Our waiter was a wonderful guy but brought an "awe shucks" kind of service. They also have pull tabs...... Not a fine dinning experience! Maybe it's just a great bar?"

The food took almost 2 hours to
cook. Nice waitress but overall horrible service."

The food was excellent and service

Went to Bar Harbor for a Saturday
evening meal with my sisters, mom and aunt. We had a fabulous time. The staff and food were excellent. The decor is classy but comfortable. Would highly recommend to everyone. "

Our family - adults and 92 year
old Dad - had an early dinner in a booth overlooking the lake with cocktails and wine. Each of us ordered something different - prime rib, stuffed shrimp, harbor surf (shrimp) and turf, and walleye. Everyone loved the meal. The shrimp, steaks, prime rib and the walleye were perfectly prepared and tasty. The house salad was crisp with a good mixture of vegetables and a light dressing. We had two different Cabernet's -both excellent at below $50. Our server was attentive and conversed especially with our dad - who was delighted. A perfect evening!"

My 92 year old Dad and I had
cocktails, dinner, and wine on Friday evening. We both had the Prime Rib - delicious and done as we ordered - medium and medium rare. The cheese hasbrowns were tasty and a good accomopaniment - as were the beans and salad. I had not heard of the cabernet and was given a taste prior to ordering a bottle. It was reasonably priced and delicious - paired well with the Prime Rib. Service was excellent and we had a window booth the looked out onto the ice - prompting wishes for spring coming soon."

I made a 7 pm reservation for my
birthday dinner and was not seated until 720. The front end looked disorganized and employees looked stressed. Once we sat down, it was several minutes before anyone came by the table. The waiter did a good job trying to make up for it, but it made for a tough night. The food was just ok. Not worth the price in my opinion."

We normally give this place a ten
on everything but for valentines day they squashed in extra tables for people so that you are almost sitting in someone's lap. No privacy and not vey romantic."

We went to Bar Harbor to celebrate
our 17th Anniversary. It was a wonderful evening! Food was amazing and our server brought us an assortment off truffles as a special Anniversary treat. Service was awesome and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing."

Bar Harbor is often at its best
when it is not jammed; such was the case when we last visited. Service was just great, with Chandra doing all that was needed. Food was very good, as is usually the case. We'll be back, but more infrequently, as BH is operating it's winter schedule for the next few months."

Waitperson took our drink order,
mentioned the prime rib special. It was over 20 to place our order. I wasn’t that busy. Orders came in another 20 minutes. 2 got the prime on a bed of Au Gratin, a side of very limp, unrecognizable greens. It was extremely salty, into the body of the meat. My slice was very fatty, gristly. We were asked if we wanted a different slice, both declined. This was supposed to be a ‘special’ that we both like and know well. At $29, it was way over-priced; a similar dish at another local restaurant is less expensive and far more satisfying. The entire menu is over-priced for the types of food offered. I should have requested a different entrée. I doubt if this group will be returning for a dinner of this size again."

This was a birthday dinner, and we
go to Bar Harbor for all of our special dinners because of the service, food and ambiance. Lisa was very experienced, friendly and most accomodating"

We love eating at Bar Harbor. We
alwasy see someone we know from the community. The food is great. The atmosphere is perfect. They have a person playing panio and singing and he is good. It sets a really nice feel. We have not had a bad experience when eating there. My husband loves that they have pull tabs there too."

We really enjoyed our dinner at
Bar Harbor. It has that grest supper club ambience with good food and great service. We had a variety of entrees at our table and everyone enjoyed what they had. This restaurant pays attention to the important details like a well made house salad on a chilled salad plate and good rolls in the bread basket. When we're in the area again we'll certainly go back."

Husband and sisters went here for
a nice dinner. Service was slow. Lost appetizer order but offered to bring late and gave 3 free desserts. Entrees and salads were superb. Left over steak was wonderful the next day. Creme brulee did not have a crusty crunchy sugar top."

First time to Bar Harbor since
they remodeled. Ambience certainly updated - could have been a little brighter dining at night. Food was very good, service prompt an d attentive. Felt like prices were a little high so would look to go here more on special ocassions instead of regular basis."

We were celebrating our son's and
his wife's birthdays (in September) and the announcement that they are expecting their first child. We had a fabulous time; food was fantastic; service was extraordinary. Kitchen sent out cupcakes for the celebrations. Very, very nice. We have a place on Gull Lake so love going to Bar Harbour."

We have eaten at Bar Harbor
several times this summer. It was remodeled last year and they have turned it into a warm and inviting restaurant with a great outdoor eating area that overlooks Gull Lake. They get an A+ for a job well done. I have to say that I was not happy with the food or wine list at the beginning of the summer, which was very disappointing. We went back last weekend for one more try and were very impressed! Everything that we ordered was delicious and they have greatly improved the wine list! We ordered their house salad, wedge salad, Hamburger, black and blue steak, risotto, and pasta carbonara and all were delicious. We will definatly go back and would recommend it to our friends."

The new ownership has done wonders
with the décor and general ambience. Classy, but still reasonably priced. This is a true "supper club" with an exceptionally creative menu, marvelous presentation and nice variety. Each entrée is handled with care and the nightly specials are both inventive and enticing. Bar Harbor was very busy that night and service just a bit slow, but we weren't in any hurry. Staff was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We're locals and so haven't tried all the spots where the lake crowd gathers, but Bar Harbor surely is among the top two or three dining spots in the Lake Country."

Food, service and ambience were

Nice location. Friendly staff.
Food was good overall but fairly salt and some of our food was warm at best. Service was only fair. Still, I would return again to see if service and food temperature and quality (less salty) improved. If not, I would go elsewhere."

Given a high top bar
table--couldn’t change when change was requested. Unfriendly hostess. Served 4 of our group, and 2 ten minutes later. Salmon way overdone. Not a good experience!"

Great food and service. House
Salad was delicious, Walleye excellent and tasty Roasted Potatoes. We will be back!!! Drinks were not that great. Way too much ice in the martini. It was like drinking a glass of water."

When making a reservation, I
specifically requested seating near the live entertainment. I was surprised to see the staff make every effort to ensure we could see and hear after this request was made. Our reservation was on a very busy Friday night and the special request was still honored. The service and food were excellent and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for an upscale place on the water."
