Reading Room Restaurant

Luxurious Oceanfront Dining

The Reading Room offers guests of the Inn, visitors to Bar Harbor, and our dearly loved regulars a distinguished fine dining experience overlooking Frenchman Bay.

Start your evening with locally farmed oysters while deciding between our signature Beef Short Ribs or Filet and Lobster Tail fresh from the boats on the Harbor. Linger over a slice of Maine Blueberry Pie while you enjoy a crafted cocktail and soft piano music.

The Reading Room offers an intimate atmosphere where special moments are celebrated with family and friends. 

Serving breakfast and dinner daily, the Reading Room is a one of a kind dining experience. Delectable local Maine cuisine and attentive service are surpassed only by the magnificent panoramic ocean views.

Business casual attire preferred, but not required. Reservations are recommended for all parties and are available by calling the Bar Harbor Inn directly at (800) 248-3351.
