We have ended up here for quite few breakfasts. Enjoyed outside patio, service was great, food very good as well as coffee - perfect latte. We are not sure about lunch or dinner but breakfast food was right on spot!

We had lunch at Paddy's after a boat tour of Acadia and surrounding area. This was actually our second choice after not getting served at another restaurant, because who thinks of eating at an Irish pub at the coast? But it was GREAT! We had the lobster salad, which had just everything that makes life worthwhile in it. My wife... More

My wife and I visited Bar Harbor in late August and stumbled across Paddy's (frankly it is hard to miss but just had not heard of it previously). We ended up eating there 3x in two days, twice just the two of us and once with our daughters. The food was a little pricier than I would have liked for... More

Paddy's Irish Pub is part of the West Hotel. It has great fish and chips - so fresh we had to come back for more. Friendly service. The band was so much fun.

We love Irish pubs. We chose Paddy's in Bar Harbor, expecting a fun, personal experience. We've had better at the Irish pub in the Mohegan Sun casino. There was nothing horrible, but also nothing really outstanding. Our seafood chowder was so-so--the lobster bisque the best of the choices. Our burgers weren't memorable. The service was even spottier than the food.... More

Fun! Fun! Traditional irish drink and fare. Enjoy a lively time at the bar or on the street-side seating. For more intimate dining there is a more quiet section. Love to hear the live music (played some afternoons and evenings throughout the summer).

Three things stood out: - the mussels in the brown mustard roux were the best I have had anywhere - the lobster was perfectly cooked with generous sides - the service by Katya was excellent And yes it's right by the water...enjoy!
