The people who dine there are obnoxious. Very rude and not very nice. My wife had a very bad experience in the wash room. Act like you’re human people.

Bar Harbor had a prime rib special for $38. We planned on having that and by the time they came back they said a table ordered 20 plates and now the prime is 2 for $86. It was upseting since this is what we were set on. Our drinks were also given to others ,so that was a long wait. The staff made the adjustments and we got the prime rib for the $ 38. and drinks were on the house. Started as a bad experience and turned out very good.

We had the prime rib for two and it was probably one of the best steaks I've ever had. The potatoes and veggies were delicious as well. It was a good deal. We also had good service because my girlfriend asked to have her steak changed from rare to well done. Our server helped and the other staff was very friendly.

Very wonderful atmosphere.

Great place. Go try it.

Was vary good, we don’t dine out often and we were glad to have chosen bar harbor as our option. Amy, manager, stopped by and was very nice. Angie, server, did a great job. Good food, nice table, had a drink at the bar before dinner. Bar tender was nice and answered our questions about the restaurant. Will go again

We have eaten at Bar Harbor many times as we live on the lake. We were very disappointed this time because we were seated and forgotten. No one made any excuses to us but we sat at least 15 minutes before the hostess finally asked us for a drink order. We also noticed the prices had been raised as we always order the surf and turf . It seemed to us that we also used to get 3 scallops instead of just the 2 we received. We will continue to go to Bar Harbor because it has been our place to celebrate special occasions and hope this was just a one time occurrence even though it was a Saturday night and should have been staffed accordingly plus it was the "Final Four" weekend so a busier night should have been a consideration even though it was only about half full.

Food was outstanding, with lite background music from the piano player but wasn't annoying because we were able to hold a conversation.
Drinks are not cheap, but very good quality. So one or two with dinner makes it worth it.
Came hungry and portions were fantastic and left with a small to go box.
Restaurant will rival many in the Twin Cities without the price tag. Expect to spend $100-150 for a dinner for 2 with two drinks, appetizer and dessert.

Our early New Year's Eve dinner experience was delightful. The wine and cocktail we enjoyed were very tasty and the meals were excellent. The service was top-notch and our server noticed the little things that make a great dining experience. We have typically enjoyed our dining experiences at Bar Harbor.

We live on the lake and take many friends and family to BH by boat throughout the summer. We enjoy both the indoor dining and outdoor "summer" dining. Thank you.

Unfortunately, we had a bad situation regarding a bottle of wine and how the bartender reacted to our concerns. He was very unprofessional. We ordered a bottle of Chardonnay. While pouring the last glass from the bottle a good amount of "gunk" pour out and into the glass. We asked the server to find out what the gunk was. She came back with a weak and confusing explanation. We then asked the bartender to come over and explain. He was really flippant and said the "supplier" said it was harmless. And, when a bartender sees the gunk pour out at the bar they just strain it out before they send it to a customer.

Well, this was extremely unappetizing and not what you would expect from BH. No apology. No "how can I fix it" comment. He was the bartender, her knew more than us, and we were stupid to be upset.

We asked for a manager. He/she did not come to the table, but removed the bottle from our bill. Still no apology or recognition that this was unacceptable at BH.

We love BH and hope you can find bartenders and managers that are as professional and efficient as the servers are. The servers are top notch. Someone is training them very well.

Thank you for all you do for the lakes!

Sincerely,
Jane and Gary Edwards

We asked for a booth but were told by the tall host that the wait would be 1 1/2 hours. We were seated at a table and noted immediately 3 booths open up and remain empty with no offer of reseating....disappointing.
The steaks as always were cooked to perfection and as directed. The fried calamari with chili sauce is another favorite of ours.
Our service was attentive and friendly.
We will return.
