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.

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!

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.

Had a very good, relaxing dinner here. Delicious lobster mac n cheese, lobster grilled cheese, broiled haddock sanwich, burger, sweet potato fries. Fish was absolutely fresh and made us realize how great fish can be. Very fast and efficient service. Couldn't have been better!

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
