While Mount Desert Island reels from the effects of two major winter storms, Beal's whom also suffered damage to their operation, decided to donate their frozen food inventory to local food banks, soup kitchens and charities that assist those in need.
Is Beal's the best lobster shack in Maine? It's certainly got the right ambiance: creaky picnic tables on a plain concrete pier next to a Coast Guard base. Plus you get to pick your own lobster from the tank, ensuring a super-fresh meal.
Stu Snyder, Owner of Beal’s Lobster Pier, talks about his own unexpected full circle trip from the world of television and sports back to a childhood favorite which has been around since 1932. When the going gets tough, the tough head for…lobster rolls!
No. 9: Bar Harbor, Maine. This gateway to Acadia National Park has been a coastal stop for summer vacationers for more than 200 years. But with a flourishing year-round population and shopping, dining and nightlife, Bar Harbor is much more than a tourist destination.
“This, this is why I did it. We wanted to make this a profitable business, of course, but at the same time preserve the essence of what the Beal family created here, and so far, it’s been working out well.”
While there aren't many dining options within Acadia National Park, nearby Bar Harbor, Maine, is chock-full of quaint eateries and bars. Of course, lobster is a must-try dish in Maine, and you'll find some of the best at Beal's Lobster Pier, Thirsty Whale Tavern and Galyn's.
Beal’s Lobster Pier is celebrating its 90th anniversary this summer. Located at 182 Clark Point Road in Southwest Harbor, this landmark eatery has been a staple for generations of families who came to consume its fresh lobster, award-winning rolls and seafood.
Serving Maine seafood since 1932, this Downeast spot is one of the best in the region. From lobster to scallops to everything in between it's not uncommon to visit more than once in a weekend. It's without a doubt one of the best of all Maine seafood restaurants.
