The food was very good but it was the hospitality by whom I assume was the owner that inspired me to write this. My elderly Dad and I had eaten here already a few nights ago and we decided to go back for another meal since it was so good the first time. I happened to be looking online and found they accepted limited reservations for an indoor dining room overlooking the harbor which would be great since it was pretty chilly out and Dad gets cold easily (normal seating is at picnic tables on the pier). So I booked a reservation online and when we arrived we spoke to this gentleman who said they had it all set up for a private party the next night but we were absolutely able to sit up there if we wanted. I felt bad since it was all ready for a party but he insisted it was fine so we did (we were the only ones up there). It is a wonderful space at the end of the pier, upstairs with amazing views of the harbor. It was very enjoyable and I am sure will be a huge asset to their business. This gracious gentleman has gained customers for life for being so accommodating and kind to us. Highly recommend.

A no-frills restaurant by the water with awesome food! We enjoyed the fresh oysters, traditional lobster roll and garlic-lovers lobster roll. The accompanying glasses of white white while seated outdoors in perfect weather also helped make this a great meal!

We’re Texans and hadn’t been to a lobster house, so can’t fairly criticize. We had fun and enjoyed the food. Best lobster roll ( garlic) of the three we had on our trip. (And the cheapest considering the portion of lobster). Lobster dinner messy and great. Steamers didn’t flip our switch meh. Blueberry pie disappointing and over-microwaved. Reasonable wines.

I heard they had the best lobster roll. They do!! I got the Garlic Lovahs and it was superb. Extremely casual. You walk up, wait in line, place your order and pay, they tell you the table number, and the server brings the food when its ready. It's worth every penny. My mouth still waters just thinking about it.

I always wanted to experience a fresh Maine lobster dinner. Came in, picked the hoss right out of the tank, they weight him, was bigger that what I had intended, but I said “go for it!” Great meal, great service, and a great authentic Maine lobster experience!! Thank you Beal’s !

After a day in Acadia, we stopped at Beal's for some lobster. I had the classic lobster roll since I love lobster without the work. My husband opted for the dinner.

This place has great lobster rolls. My wife had the Traditional and I had the Garlic "Lovah's". Both were great. Don't expect fancy. Their deal is to serve the freshest lobster possible and they do it very well. Don't hesitate to go to this place.

Beals is a must visit, nice location on the harbor, lots to watch as you rip apart the delicious crustacean and watch the comings and goings in the harbor!

We were recommended this place and weren’t disappointed. There was a queue but it moved quickly, I opted for one of the specials, lemon butter lobster roll and hubby had the burger as he doesn’t do fish. Lobster roll was filled to the brim and was my fave of the trip. The burger was good too. My only gripe and I know it’s an American thing is adding a tip at the point of sale before you’ve even eaten and then them reading the receipt to check the tip (unless they’re checking the order is correct and I’m happy to be corrected on that). Just a small frustration from a Brit but the food was delicious and the staff friendly.

This place is better than the others so highly rated in Bar Harbor for these reasons: 1. You can sit inside when it's cold outside. 2. Prices for Dinner for Two are very reasonable compared to Bar Harbor. 3. Lobster Dinner came with cole slaw, corn on the cob, and cornbread. The ones so highly rated in Bar Harbor came with just corn and mussels, which we didn't want. We really enjoyed our lobster dinner where lobsters were taken from the tank right in front of us, put in a net bag and cooked right then and there. Couldn't be fresher than that! Corn and corn bread were very good. Slaw so-so like most slaws. Lobster perfect.
