The Reading Room is closed for the 2018 season. We will be reopening on Friday, April 12th, 2019 for dinner service and Saturday, April 13th, 2019 for breakfast service.
Distinguished fine dining overlooking Frenchman Bay in downtown Bar Harbor awaits you at the historic Reading Room Restaurant. Join a long list of guests from around the world, important characters of US history, and dignitaries who have enjoyed meals, drinks, and memorable gatherings at the Bar Harbor Inn Reading Room since 1887.
Serving breakfast and dinner daily and Sunday Brunch the first Sunday of each month, 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 of Frenchman Bay. Hearty breakfast favorites include Wild Maine Blueberry Stuffed French Toast and Maine Lobster Eggs Benedict. Our dinner menu features fresh Maine seafood dishes, choice cuts of meat, gourmet desserts and an extensive wine list. The Lobster Pie, a favored dish among our patrons, is prepared with fresh Maine lobster meat baked in a rich sherry cream and topped with a butter crumb finish.
The Reading Room at the Bar Harbor Inn offers nightly entertainment featuring a grand piano player. Business casual attire preferred, but not required. Reservations are recommended for all parties and are available by calling the Bar Harbor Inn directly at 1-800-248-3351 or booking a table on OpenTable.
