Shopped here for scallops, muscles and haddock all of, which were very fresh. The scallops were absolutely amazing. My girlfriend purchased a homemade blueberry pie here also, which was delicious, but pricey at $16.00. Other than a few roadside stands that sell fish etc., it`s...More

Stopped in here twice during our visit to Bar Harbor. Since we were RVing we cooked our own lobster at less than half the price. Parson's had the freshest lobster we've ever tasted - sweet and savory! Would have loved to have brought more with...More

We spent last week in the island, and we were planning on making some homemade clam chowder. Parson's had exactly what we were looking for. Stepped by one day for clams (cherrystones) for the chowder, and another one just for steamers (long necks). Just delicious....More

If it comes from the sea, they have it and it always fresh. Lobster, scallops, salmon and the least keeps on going. Oysters for a special treat (be sure to pick up shucking knives). And their incredibly delicious blueberry pies are a must.

A nice place for fresh lobster. We stop to get some fresh lobsters before we left the town. Lobsters are fresh and meaty with very reasonable price. Also don't forget to grab their yummy blueberry pie. Wish I have more.
