    We really did enjoy our time at Bahrs. The service was very slow. Took over 10 minutes to get greeted, 15 minutes for drinks then an additional 10 for appetizers and soup. The Popcorn Shrimp was amazing and the lobster bisque is creamy (if you are expecting lumps of lobster, you’ll be disappointed), the stuffer shrimp was very good and my husband enjoyed his fried flounder. Overall, slow service but great fresh food.

    Everything's great at the restaurant, except the food, which is mediocre at best. Steamer clams, though, were a delight. The oysters looked--and tasted--like they had too much sun. Calamari's respectable, but the marinara sauce could use some more flavor. I can only describe the soups, both clam chowder & lobster bisque as muddy in texture and lacking in taste. I kept adding salt to my lobster roll but it still tasted flat. The broiled fisherman's platter seemed pan-fried; didn't hazard a taste for fear of disappointment. The french fries tasted off, like they used week-old oil to fry them. There wasn't a single lump of crab in the crab cakes; they looked--and tasted like--they went thru a ringer. I was deadly afraid of ordering dessert and coffee, and we hastily took our leave, promising never to go back. Pity. I will miss the fabulous display of antique oyster plates from all over the world...

    Haven’t been here in years (we don’t live nearby) but felt like taking a drive. This was always my Aunt’s favorite place for stuffed flounder and we were happy to see it is still as good as in years past and so many new menu items! We had a table by the water with a wonderful view. Service was attentive and laid back but hey, we drove over an hour to get there so we were not wanting to rush! We shared a ceviche appetizer which was tasty but very spicy. Hubby had the stuffed flounder (still excellent) and I had the hot lobster roll with homemade potato chips (my weakness) and cole slaw. Delicious! The lobster roll was a bit dry so I asked for a side of drawn butter which I drizzled on and it was perfect - really enhanced the flavor of the lobster. I would definitely suggest adding that to the dish. Too full for dessert but we will definitely be back!

    I have never been disappointed with a Barhs experience. The seafood is always fresh and prepared well. This time I ordered the soft shell crab sauteed with capers, butter and lemon. Delicious! My appetizer was the Maine soft shell steamers. They were clean, fresh and sweet with drawn butter. It's a 40 minute drive for me but it is well worth the trip.

    We have dined at Bahr’s Landing many times. This may have been the last time. Although the food is good, the service is not. Our reservation was at 7:30. When we sat at our table at about 7:45, our section of the restaurant was full. By the time we were asked if we wanted dessert, we were the only remaining table. The staff was cleaning the restaurant around us, and someone was even cleaning the windows. We had dessert at home. Also, the occasion was to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. I called in advance to ask for a birthday cake. The person to whom I spoke said yes and that it would be done. When I asked our server, she told me Bahr’s doesn’t offer birthday cakes. We were told we could order something for dessert. It was already too late for dessert and they were cleaning up around us. Finally, my wife order gluten free pasta. The dish that was served did not have the gluten free pasta. When the server checked, the person that had delivered the meal simply snatched the wrong dish from in front of my wife and announced it was wrong. Great food, lousy service and way overrated for a $250 meal.

    The view and service were excellent. The hot lobster roll and scallops were delicious, but the vegetables appeared to have been previously cooked and left over, as they were obviously not fresh. It was disappointing, as my previous visits had all been excellent.

    We are long time fans of Bahr's, an old school seafood house, one of my favorite types of places. Service is always good, the seafood they cook top notch and the room and views wonderful. Great martinis ! Best cherry stone clams I've ever had. My wife loves the stuffed flounder. Biscuits are classic !
