Visited McKay's for dinner and enjoyed the food and service. Fish and chips were good and although this place really isn't for kids, they really took care of us and our 2.5 year old. McKay's is in a neat old house and has a gorgeous patio in the front. Neat place and worth a visit for dinner...

We visited in December which when many of the restaurants were closed for the season. They were open and the food was good.

Had a nice dinner at a more private table upstairs. The poke appetizer was a tasty reminder of Hawaii. The seafood risotto was ok but not a lot of scallops and very small shrimp. Was expecting more after rave recommendation from our B&B. Pleasant server.

I had dinner here with my family when visiting Bar Harbour.

Friendly staff and no problem getting a table without a reservation.

The food and drinks were all good.

This is a very nice place to eat for a couple on vacation. Not a place to grab something cheap and fast, but a great place to sit back and relax with a glass of wine. Most nights during the busy season they even have live music, which was equally as impressive. As with most high end places to eat in Bar Harbor Maine, the seafood is fantastic. My wife and I both had lobster and it was fantastic. I would highly suggest this restaurant when visiting.
