    A recent dinner with friends at Acadia House Provisions couldn't have been more pleasant. It's a wonderful, comfortable room with a fabulous view, the food was really excellent, and the service attentive and friendly. Just sad that they are winding down at the end of the season, but we look forward to their re-opening next spring!

    Lovely restaurant in a special location. The food is a bit unusual, but good. The service was "right on", very attentive. The room was tightly seated, with little room for servers, or movement around by customers. The fire alarm went off at one point, but was not a problem for the staff. For a chef with two Michelin start at his restaurant in Chicago, he still has some rough areas to tackle. We would definitely return.

    I enjoyed a very fine dinner with a couple who I invited to join me. The cocktails were very nicely done, strong, but not overpowering, just as I prefer. My salad was beautifully presented and quite flavorful, and my entree, scallops, was near perfect; with the scallops wonderfully seared. The blueberry desert, served with ginger ice cream, was a stellar ending. A great meal that my guests enjoyed as much as I did.

    This place is lovely and intimate. It has the feel that a restaurant in this sleepy little town should have. The tables are very close together which for me is awesome because I get to look at what everyone else is ordering, but don't go there for a quiet romantic for two dinner or if you need privacy. The evening our party of four was there we had the butternut squash soup, the lobster wedge salad, the fresh greens salad, the lobster roll, the halibut in curry and the ribeye with spinach and mushroom sides. All was amazing and raved over except the ribeye and sides. It was cooked perfectly but incredibly salty. We are all real salt lovers and had been told by friends that they had had a salty experience with the steak and we kind of poo-pooed that because they eat almost no salt, but the couple that had it on this trip were sucking down water by the end of it. So, we highly recommend everything else except the ribeye unless you ask the kitchen to hold most of the salt which chef run restaurants tend to turn a stink eye at, so maybe just order something else. The only other complaint came from the wine drinkers as the manager/maitre d' came to repour wine and poured both glasses but because there was maybe two ounces left in the bottle just proceeded to top of one of the drinkers and leave with the bottle. Being a restaurant worker myself, I am sure he did it to clear the table, but it goes against wine etiquette to top off like that when not asked to. Anyway, overall an excellent experience with a couple of minor tweaks needed. Would have no qualms about returning!

    I was greeted upon entry by a friendly bartender and then immediately attended by the owner, who had my reservation on hand, and welcomed me by name. The restaurant was nearly full when I arrived, but, I was seated immediately. The atmosphere is cozy and elegant. Tastefully decorated, with place settings, fresh flowers, and a seaside view. The ambiance is a blend of casual and formal, which allows one to dress, or come in denim. The serving staff is impeccably trained and everything was timed perfectly. The only 'wait' I had was between my appetizer and entree, and I welcomed the respite between courses (which was not long). The rolls are French and delectable. I had the Risotto appetizer and the Lobster Pot Pie. Both were prepared with subtle savory flavors that were melt in your mouth perfection. The Risotto offered a variety of textures for the pallet, designed to delight. I left some on the plate to save room for my entree, but, I could have eaten the whole and been fine. Portions are appropriate, rather than the usual oversized. The Lobster Pot Pie was positively scrumptious!! I do recommend cutting the crust against the plate, rather than attempting to do so while it sits atop the softer ingredients...I cleaned the entree plate! Reserve a table in advance.

    I really love taking friends and family who visit me in Stonington to Acadia House Provisions. This particular time we enjoyed the best burger in Maine and a rib-eye steak. We had several drinks which came quickly and the bartender --Brad-- was very entertaining. The serving staff was excellent and the entire experience is welcoming, warm, and everything you'd want for an evening out.

    I enjoyed a very pleasant, and intentionally light, dinner at Acadia House Provisions. I started with perhaps the best Wedge Salad I have ever had, accentuated as it was by lobster, avocado and a fried egg. I then enjoyed the Mussels which were tender, yet firm (not mushy), and served in a very flavorful broth. Although it was intended to be a light dinner, I could not pass up the Blueberry Streusel served with Ginger ice cream. The Streusel was served in a hot cast iron server and it was wonderful. All in all a great dinner.

    Cozy, intimate dining experience with thoughtful and tastefully prepared food. Loved the Lobster Pot Pie and Lobster Grilled cheese! The wedge salad could be a meal itself with crabmeat, avocado and egg. The only negatives were spotty service and rather tight seating. But the food more than made up for it all. Would definitely recommend and go again.

    Had we not waited over 45 minutes for cocktails we would have given this experience all 5 stars. My houseguests are foodies from San Francisco and really enjoyed everything---ambiance & decor, cuisine, and our excellent wait staff. This is chef's first season in Stonington so we expect a few glitches and look forward to his second season next summer.

    Our third visit since they opened in June. Acadia House has unquestionably taken its place amongst the best of Maine and in a remarkable short time! The food is exquisite, beautifully presented and attentively and very professionally served. The space is informally elegant and the setting, overlooking Stonington harbor, spectacular. Definitely worth the trip.

    Excellent service and unparalleled location. My companion and I ordered the lobster pot pies, and unfortunately, the bottom crust was completely soggy, drenched by the mashed potatoes, and then the bisque poured all over the plate. So half of the deconstructed pot pie was edible... The ginger ice cream was excellent, and the green salad beforehand was very fresh. I just wouldn't order that lobster pot pie again.

    The food was terrific, the service was timely, our server was delightful. The place and its setting are lovely. My only other comments, to be taken as constructive criticism, are: (1) the gentlmanwho seated us and provided minor assistance to our server, perhaps the managers?, was not at all friendly. I would hesitate to make him the first person one encounters upon arrival; and (2) it was a bit loud. As many patrons are not young, it might help to find a way to reduce the noise level. I hope this restaurant survives and thrives; I will return soon.

    We were so pleased to know this new restaurant would open this summer prior to our arrival, and we couldn't have been happier with the amazing food, the incredible Grateful Dead-inspired cocktails, the beautiful setting, and -- importantly -- the amazing staff. We got to Acadia House Provisions twice during our week-long stay, and would have gone back more had we stayed in Maine longer.

    What could be better than eating meticulously prepared meals while looking out at Stonington harbor as the sun goes down? Lobster pot pie is a killer dish, and standards like mussels and corn soup offer delicious flavors. As a newbie in town Acadia House got its act together much more quickly than other contenders in the past. That said, help is always an issue on the island, and based on our three visits there is a marked difference in the quality of service in the dining room when Chef Ryan is in residence and when he's not ... try to go when he's there!

    Excellent food, innovative preparation, and beautifully presented. The deconstructed "shrimp and grits" was excellent, and the lobster pot pie is a signature dish. Ryan McCaskey has succeeded in bringing a less formal version of his Chicago fine dining experience to down east Maine.

    Our server (young lady from Blue Hill) was excellent but overall operation of the dining room was disorganized and haphazard. Some dining room staff seemed not to know what to do or how to do it. The quality of the food was excellent but the portions were smaller than expected (e.g., lobster pot pie). There are few alternatives on Deer Isle for fine dining so there may be little incentive for the restaurant to improve.

    This new arrival on the Maine dining scene was a highlight of our summer dining. The intimate dining room seats only maybe 30, and on the night we were there many reservations were having to wait as much as half an hour for their tables. We were seated right away and what came out of the kitchen was superb. Highlights included the wedge salad with lobster, blue cheese, lardons and more; and their take on a lobster pot pie. Including drinks three courses for two came to about $120.

    We’d heard very good reviews about this restaurant so we were anticipating a great meal/experience. This restaurant was casual but tastefully designed. The wait staff was very attentive. The food was very tasty and nicely plated. The portion size compared to the prices was ridiculous. Tiny portions were the norm. An heirloom tomato salad was so small, looking like the equivalent of one small tomato sliced thinly, with underripe tomato. The lobster pot pie was very tasty, and in fairness had a lot of lobster but the whole dish fit into a 3” diameter circle. So to sum up, go but be aware you will pay a lot for very small but tasty portions.

    The maitre'd described the duck gnocchi as a "beautiful plate", and indeed it was, as were the other entrees my fellow diners had. But the gnocchi themselves were bland and a bit pasty, the duck confit underwhelming, and the dish did not come together. Similarly the vegetable bolognese was beautiful but the Vietnamese spices overwhelmed it, and the olive oil poached cod was cooked perfectly but the curry also overwhelmed the fish. Ambiance is wonderful, and wait staff professional and helpful, and the cocktails were quite good (need more wines by the glass). Disappointing meal, food wise.
