My husband and I really enjoyed our two dinners at this eclectic, unpretentious place in Bar Harbor. The ambitious menu is well executed. There are lots of small-plate options, too, so you can easily put together an interesting meal.

A little off the main road, down an alley. Good food and friendly people. Books and artwork create a nice ambiance.
