We were waited on promptly and the young man taking orders was very fast. Even with a line, it moved smoothly and efficiently. We ordered six lobsters and a lobster roll, but prices were definitely higher than anywhere else on Mt. Desert Island. Food was...average.More

We were staying at Hadleys campground and walked over to C-Rays for dinner. By far, best lobster roll AND clam chowder I ever had, and I have had a lot in my lifetime. Don't miss visiting C-Rays!

We enjoyed a traditional lobster meal outdoors at this roadside location. The staff was very friendly and the food was good.

Read a review praising C-Rays lobsters. We agree the food is delicious. We were told they may have to restrict hours for the rest of the season because of staff shortages. So call first.

Great lobster meal! Clam chowder and mussels were also fantastic - and good price. Great outdoor seating on a nice day. Will definitely go back on our next trip to Bar Harbor.

If you want to eat lobster and not wrestle with the shell, get a lobster roll here. I visited during COVID, called ahead for a take-out order and found the lobster roll to be excellent and decently priced. If you want to eat on-site, you...might have to wait a while.More

Lobster roll was very good. Blueberry pie was delicious. They have seating outside which was sanitized between each customer.

C-Ray is right off a major road and not on any water but that doesn’t matter. You order from a menu on a chalk board, pay and a staff person brings your order to you. I had the regular lobster roll. It was absolutely delicious....The amount of sweet,juicy lobster meat simply poured out of the bun. This lobster shack knows how to make a tremendous lobster roll. My wife ordered the little neck clams which she totally enjoyed. We sat on Adirondack chairs which had a little “table” attached to them. A very pleasant experience.More
