Follow Your Nose to Bar Harbor’s Fish House Grill

It’s hard to ignore the tantalizing smell of wood smoke near the harbor. Follow it to find the Fish House Grill for good simple seafood and great views of the harbor.  Eaten here twice in October 2013 & 2014. When you first go down the stairs it may be confusing as the hallway outside the entrance of the restaurant is where people from the cruise ships line up to catch a launch back to their ships. Turn right into the restaurant. Its not much to look at decor wise, somewhat nautical with wood trim. Ask to be seated in a booth along the wall of windows looking out on the dock. It’s a good vantage point to do some fun people watching.

The food is typical fish house fare. My favorite is Bacon wrapped Scallops Fish House Grill bacon wrapped scallops in maple and brown sugar glazeappetizer with a Maple Syrup and Brown Sugar glaze. Yummy! All the soups are housemade. We’ve tried the Clam Chowder, Lobster Bisque and French Onion – perfect on a cool fall day. There are salads, sandwiches including Lobster rolls, seafood entrees and pastas.
