The Black Friar Inn has an ideal in-town location snugged away on a quiet side street in the center of Bar Harbor. With fine architectural woodwork salvaged from old area mansions (dubbed cottages by the wealthy summer residents of the 1800s) there is an old European charm to the inn. It has been described as a gentlemen’s retreat and a ladies’ delight, and kids like it, too. There is easy access to all of the village by foot. and right around the corner is Bar Island for low tide waterfront strolls.
Each morning you dine in our restaurant and order from the full breakfast menu. Later in the day the pub is a casual place to enjoy a pint and a bite, meet some locals, and share the stories of the day. Our full-service dining is highly rated, and has fresh off-the-boat seafood, and burgers flavored with Bass ale. There is a roof deck, and a lounge with a crackling fire on cool nights.
