Maybe one of the best views of maybe the prettiest spot on the east coast, in my opinion. The Bar Harbor location of Stewmans overlooks Frenchman’s Bay, the only other view that rivals it is at Galyn’s. One is indoor and the other outdoor, so I guess it depends on the weather. The lobster roll here is an adequate roll. It is all claw meat with a nice amount of mayo on a nicely grilled standard white hot dog roll. I actually found it surprising that it was all claw since that seems not to be the standard in this slice of the world. But, this spot seems really to be more of a tourist joint geared toward the mobs of cruise ship passengers. Luckily, there was no ship in town the day we tried it out. I wouldn’t come back here for the food, but the view is amazing and they have a rather extensive menu and serve booze. Perfect spot to have a glass of wine while taking in maybe the best view in Maine.
