Service was impeccable, per usual, and the food was even better than that! Everything is always good, but the spare ribs are ridiculous!

Will always be a dinner night while in Nisswa!

The food was fantastic. It was our 25th wedding anniversary so it was a special night for us and Bar Harbor did not disappoint. The service was not perfect but you can't have everything I suppose. Again, the food was really tasty and perfectly prepared. Nice ambiance. Thanks Bar Harbor!

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.

We went to Bar Harbor for a special occasion while vacationing in the area. We had always heard it was amongst the nicer places in the lakes area. For the most part it was quite good. However the prime rib special was disappointing as it came out with much more waste than prime rib. The walleye was good and the surf and turf got high marks. Service was very good and we were treated very well.

Will go back but will try some other items.

First time back after the remodel, yes we are on the late show. Almost didn't recognize the restaurant. The decor is beautiful, the menu is classic and tasty, the wine list extensive, and the service great!

Definitely a plus for the lakes area!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. Great view, expansive menu and great service. We had a relaxing dinner, with all courses. Our server was attentive, yet didn't rush us and gave excellent recommendations for drinks, food and desert. We had their crab cake for an appetizer which was enough for two and delicious. Our entrees included scallops and New York strip; both done to perfection. Truly a nice upscale restaurant in the Brainerd lakes area!

Bar Harbor is a legendary classic supper club in the Brainerd Lakes Country of Central Minnesota. We had never been there before, and decided to go for our anniversary. It was excellent. Service was attentive and friendly. I had forgotten that I had noted "Anniversary" on the reservation form where it asked whether it was a special occasion, and we got a free dessert. The wine list is not particularly large, but has good wines at all price points up to $175. Being on Gull Lake, the specialty is fish and seafood. It had rained in the afternoon and we could see the rainbow as we sat at our table by the window. Starter brussels sprouts were outstanding. Will definitely make an effort to go back.

The food was fabulous. We love seafood and the scallops were done to perfection served with parsnips, asparagus and served over risoto. The short rib was also done perfectly served over mashed potatoes with green beans and sauteed carrots. Also, a great salad accompanies entrees. We enjoyed both a caesar and a wedge salad. The timing was perfect as we never felt rushed nor did we have exceptionally long wait time between courses. The restuarant overlooks the marina and the northern part of Gull Lake.

My husband's Ribeye(40.00) was gray inside and he asked for medium rare to medium. It was also gray in color on the outside. Ribeye should be most inside due to the father marbeling. My short rib was salty red wine glaze was salty and nothing special. The mashed potatoes had chunks of potato in them. The salads were great but the meals themselves not good.

We try to get to Bar Harbor several times a year and have done so for decades . We have been there for many of the changes over the years. My husband went there as a young man before it moved to the shore side of the highway. He loved it then and still does. We recently took some friends there for dinner and were impressed with the food and service. The men really loved the old fashion drinks. It's the place to go for a good meal.

I made reservations for two and we ended up bringing our 10 month old. After waiting to be acknowledged by the hostess, she informed us that we could not have a high chair at a window booth but told us we could use a booster seat. We told her we could sit elsewhere as we did not request any special seating and that a booster seat was not an option for our infant. She walked away and approached a server who we could over hear answering 'um, no! It's in the way of a fire escape.' The hostess came back and said that she could not seat us at the booth. I had to be quite direct in telling her that we did not need the window booth but we did need a place to sit that allows us to use a high chair.
I'm really not sure what the fuss was but we were eventually seated at a table in the back of the restaurant. We were then greeted by Randi, our server, who was amazing! She was very sweet to the baby and did not make us feel awful for bringing her. Randi was very attentive and turned out experience around. Randi gets all 5 stars and we will be back because of her. The food was also amazing.

The food and service was good but we had vodka gimlets and asked for olives and filberts which we got. When we asked for more olives she said that we'd be charged $1.00-$1.50 for them. So we didn't order extra olives. When we got our bill they charged us $1.00 a piece for the olives we did get for our drinks on top of the drink charge!!! Who charges for olives?? Would never order them again or else I'll bring my own filberts and olives!!
