Bar Harbor Lobster

In the United States, you rarely hear the word "lobster" without "Maine" preceding it. When our real estate agents are craving this iconic seafood, they head to these great restaurants around Bar Harbor.

  • Stewman's Lobster Pound - 35 West St., Bar Harbor, ME 04609
    It may sound like a unit of measure, but Stewman's Lobster Pound is named for a unique way of storing lobster. Live crustaceans go directly from the boat to an oceanside container with fresh seawater running through, which is also used for the kettle-steamed preparation. Start your meal with a Pineapple-Mint Mojito or other craft cocktail as you take in the spectacular view. Call ahead, as hours vary seasonally.

  • Bar Harbor Lobster Bakes - 10 Rte. 3, Bar Harbor, ME 04609
    It's no secret what Bar Harbor Lobster Bakes is known for. For more than 30 years, this local favorite has been serving its sumptuous lobster bakes to residents and tourists alike. A fresh 1.5-pound lobster is accompanied by a cup of clam chowder, mussels, and corn on the cob. The dining room faces Hulls Cove for some scenic Atlantic views. Visit the website for information about seasonal hours.

  • Blaze - 198 Main St., Bar Harbor, ME 04609
    The appropriately-named Blaze adds a fiery touch to lobster and other seafood items. This upscale yet casual bar, located in a renovated 134-year-old building, features a wood-fired oven that adds a deep, smoky flavor. This cooking method is showcased in the Wood-Grilled Fruits de Mer for Two, loaded with a two-pound lobster along with scallops, mussels, oysters, shrimp, clams, crab claws, potatoes, and roasted vegetables. On beautiful New England days, bring Fido along to sit outdoors. Hours are 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11:30 a.m. - 9 p.m. daily. Friday through Sunday.

  • Jack Russell's Steakhouse & Brewery - 102 Eden St., Bar Harbor, ME 04609
    In Maine, even the steakhouses serve plenty of seafood. At Jack Russell's Steakhouse & Brewery, they do all the work for you. Lazy Man's Lobster is already removed from the shell and prepared with a white-wine butter sauce. From May through September, their pet-friendly outdoor seating is available. Jack Russell's opens for dinner at 4 p.m. daily.

  • Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound - 1237 Bar Harbor Rd., Trenton, ME 04605
    From the red and white exterior to the unpretentious interior, Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound has the look and ambiance of a classic Maine lobster shack. The menu is simple yet seafood-centric, consisting of various dishes featuring lobster, crab, clams, mussels, oysters, and shrimp. There's not a deep fryer to be found on site, as all seafood is either steamed or boiled. Purchase lobster roll kits and other seafood items at Trenton Bridge's retail shop, which is open year-round from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. The restaurant is open from Father's Day through Columbus Day from 8 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. every day but Sunday.

  • Paddy's Irish Pub & Restaurant - West Street Hotel, 50 West St., Bar Harbor, ME 04609
    Corned beef shares the spotlight with lobster at Paddy's Irish Pub & Restaurant. Lobster is the main ingredient in the Rustic Irish stew of Coastal Shellfish, which also includes clams, mussels, shrimp, and cod. Pub-style Surf & Turf features a butter-basted lobster tail alongside slow-braised boneless short rib. Customers love the lobster roll, with large chunks of meat in a flavorful lemon mayonnaise. Start your day with an elegant lobster Benedict topped with eggs, spinach, tomatoes, and lemon Hollandaise. Guests at the West Street Hotel may order in-room dining. Paddy's is open seven days a week, with breakfast served from 7 a.m. - 11 a.m. and the all-day menu available from noon - 10 p.m.

  • Geddy's - 19 Main St., Bar Harbor, ME 0469
    Geddy's has a history that's as colorful as their food is tasty. In 1974, Gerry "Geddy" Mitchell bought a seedy saloon and turned it into a lively bar and entertainment venue. Over the years, Geddy's hosted noted performers, including Bonnie Raitt, Wynton Marsalis, and Arlo Guthrie. Arthur and Heather purchased Geddy's in 1987 and reinvented the spot as a high-quality seafood restaurant. The star of the show is the famed lobster bake, including Geddy's famous blueberry pie, which comes in a mini-version for lighter appetites. Like your seafood with a touch of heat? Try the bacon-jalapeño lobster roll. Visit the website for information about seasonal hours.

  • Galyn's - 17 Main St., Bar Harbor, ME 04609
    Galyn's is located in a building that served as a boarding house for seafarers during the turn of the 20th century. In addition, architectural features salvaged from other local buildings make Galyn's a true tribute to Bar Harbor history. Try the Frenchman Bay Stew, a homemade bouillabaisse with lobster, shrimp, scallops, and fish, or the lobster fettuccine tossed with a white wine sauce. Galyn's opens for the season in April, with hours from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m.
