After eating seafood everyday we were in need of beef! Jack Russell's is on the outskirts of town. The filet for me and the rib eye for my husband was OUTSTANDING!! The atmosphere was not that great.. the only reason for 4 stars not 5

Jack Russell's is a great year round dining option in Bar Harbor. They specialize in steak, but their seafood and chicken options are also excellent. An excellent option for both couples and large groups. Everyone in our large family had a great time!

Very nice place, just outside of Bar Harbor. Reasonable prices, good food and good beer. The only thing is that we did not consider it a real steakhouse, for that we think the offered steaks are too few, however the quality was good.
