    We came to Bar Harbor for our anniversary dinner and had a terrible experience. We ordered the surf and turf and ordered the steak medium. The fish was decent but the sirloin steak was incredibly salty, like hard to eat salty. We politely asked if we could have 2 new steaks without so much salt. The server hesitated and talked to the kitchen. They graciously made us two new steaks. These steaks came out basically raw. Our plates were soaked in blood. We were so uncomfortable and told the server that our steaks were raw. She proceeded to hand us our bill for over $100 and said she felt bad for our experience. We left not eating more than 2 bites of our steak. Terrible customer service and food. Think twice before eating here.

Randi was an exceptional waitress with her infectious smile, energetic and out-going personality and genuine concern for making our time at BH very special! Dave and Sue Nelson June 2022

    Prime rib special included delicious meat and veggies. The potatoes, however, were exceptionally salty. So much so that they were almost inedible unless paired with a bite of meat or veg. Disappointing for such a pricey night out.

    Visiting Nisswa for the weekend for my boyfriends 60th birthday. Reserved weeks in advance asking for a booth by the windows ~ Upon arrival NO window booths available 🥴 They were very Kind and accommodating but tried to put us in a 1/2 booth for a large party ~ which wasn’t by the window & we didn’t want to Take up that much room. Anyways ~ ended up at the bar which was fine. Bartenders were super busy & running around like chickens with their heads cut off. I know everyone is short staffed but slow down & relax it’s fine dining people can chill & live in the moment. Felt rushed. Ambience was lovely / food was AMAZING / live pulltab booth , yeah. & drink choices we plentiful. Will definitely be back but on a slower night when so it’s not so chaotic & busy. Cheers 🥂

    For such a fine dining place our service was incredibly slow. We waited nearly 30 minutes just to get our bill AFTER our plates were taken from us. The food choices were marginal. I wouldn’t spend the money there again.

    We had a very disappointing visit on May 6 but already had reservations for Mothers Day, so decided to try again since we have dined with you for over 25 years. This visit was excellent. My walleye was cooked to perfection and my wife’s prime rib was superb. The server was excellent, attentive, and never kept us waiting. Thanks for a delightful visit.

    Customers for over 25 years and this was a disappointing visit. We realize the bar area would be more noisy than the dining room but the acoustics are not good. I ordered the sea scallops that are normally great. But for $38 I was only served 3 scallops when in the past you served 5. For that extra you could bring back the garlic toast you used to be famous for. My wife ordered the 6 oz sirloin cooked medium and scallops. She received 2 scallops and a tired, overcooked steak that should never have been served at Bar Harbor. We remarked on the well done, tough steak and our server said it was the light from the window that made it look well dine. You can do better. Either you had a bad night or we did.
