The culinary scene in Bar Harbor rivals that of its stunning outdoor scenery. This charming coastal town serves fresh seafood, local cuisine, and international fare, such as French, Italian, and Asian.

The seafood is incredibly fresh. Since Bar Harbor is on the coast of Maine, the seafood is abundant. Lobsters, clams, shrimp, and other shellfish abound. This is a must-visit destination for seafood lovers. Try The Lobster Pound, the Galley Grill, or 2 Cats Restaurant.
