What others say…
We stopped here for a late lunch. Most of the menu items were sold out for the day. The cashier was very nice and held up a lobster for me since I was looking at them. My husband had a garlic lovahs lobster roll and I had a shrimp basket. I also had a Bloody Mary. My shrimp basket was good but it wasn’t really what I wanted but options were limited. It was my husbands least favorite lobster roll on our trip. The table we were seated at was slanted and the server that brought our food out acted like he didn’t want to be there. Bathrooms are in a separate building in front of the restaurant. Parking is limited to two hours.
We stopped for a fresh lunch and we were not disappointed. We started with oysters, mussels, and then lobster. The food was awesome and the pier/waterside dining was a postcard of Maine. The selection of seafood is second to none. To top off the seafood, some tasty local brews. Can't say enough about this place very impressive.
The best lobster rolls we've ever had. We ordered 4 classics. Everyone loved it. They used live lobster, which was so juicy and tender. It was not salty as we feared. We topped it up with some blueberry pies to share. The total came to around $40/person, which is reasonable given the high quality of the lobster. Super delicious but definitely not for anyone watching their weight. We were still full after 8 hours. It is worth breaking the diet rule for. Great place to check out if you are visiting Seawall Point. I believe that the Park bus does not stop here so you may want to drive your own vehicle.
We ordered takeout at this restaurant. It was a large order, and we didn't have an issue with something in the order missing. It didn't take long for the order to be ready either. Their lobster roll and crab roll were both delicious.
Beal's has been debated as one of the best joints for Lobster Rolls. It certainly is creative. And mine was perfect with a cup of Lobster Bisque. Depending on what side of the pier they sit you on the view improves and the warm weather Sunshine helps. All sides provide views of an active lobstering community #CarlEatsHere
Wow is all I can say. You must go here if you are in the area. Very cool establishment and great staff. The food is amazing definitely worth the $$$$$. We had lobster, mussels, shrimp and more lobster. So good. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.
This was an amazing find in Southwest Harbor for my husband and i. Husband has Celiac and so we are always searching for some place where he can safely eat - and this place was amazing. They had tons and tons of options that you just don't see other places, including fried fish and shrimp in gluten-free batter, gluten-free white chocolate and strawberry cake, etc. Husband was ecstatic to be able to have a fried fish platter for the first time in forever. And it was delicious. Our Captain's platter was pricey ( about $50 I think), but it was enormous and we were able to share
Loved this place. Right on the water. Line was long but it was a very efficient ordering process. Lobster was perfect. They pre-crack to make the work light. Blueberry pie was delicious for dessert
Beal’s Lobster Pier was by far our favorite restaurant we visited while on vacation in Maine. The lobster rolls are fantastic. We stopped and had lobster rolls for lunch each day, this is the best one. The highlight of the place though is the blueberry pie. It is so good we took two pieces to go. The drive here is nice and it gets you away from all the touristy places in Bar Harbor. Definitely a must visit if you are in the area.
Beal's was one of the special highlights of our 12-day Maine adventure. We especially appreciated Matt, the Exec. Chef, with whom we shared our distaste for a particular college/pro basketball player. We bonded! The food was out-of-this-world, the scenery out of a movie, the service excellent and on and on. We felt we truly experienced Maine seafood authenticity with the flavorable lobsters and blueberry pie a la mode. Thank you Matt and staff for a highly memorable adventure.
Wish I could have gone more than twice in our one week vacation! The wait is WORTH IT! Seafood is distinctively fresh - you can tell in the flavor and texture and cook time. They have a superb system down pat - order first, upon ordering you're assigned a table, soft drinks handed to you immediately, alcohol at the back bar, food is run to your table and tables are bussed. Lastly, your choice: Order dessert up front, where you're instructed to return to the secrete second rear register when you're ready for it, and just ask; or you can head to this register to separately order dessert. This way, you don't have to race through your meal before your ice cream melts. LOVE IT! Prompt, friendly, patient service, genuinely superior product. Lobster was on-point, as were the fried whole-belly clams. Event the room-temp blueberry pie with ice cream. Can't wait to go back some day. Don't miss this place!
Over and over in Acadia I saw restaurants saying lobster dinner with a 1.25 pound lobster for $50. Sorry I’ve been eating lobster for 50+ years can’t do it. So when we discovered that Beals had a special: A 2-2.5 lb lobster with corn bread, corn on the cob and cole slaw for $42.99. (Normally $10 more) Now you are talking And it exceeded my wildest expectations. The lobster was cooked perfectly. There was plenty of lobster. Yum yum. The sides were great. And I dunked the corn bread in the lobster juice — who knew? - outrageous Beals is not fancy at all. But it had tons of atmosphere. You walk up to the menu and ask for what you want And then they give you a table - outside. We sat by the water as the sun was going down. What better way to eat lobster?? It’s 2 days later and I am still thinking about it.
