    All the lobster things are delicious. The quesadilla and mac and cheese are especially good. Finish with a slice of perfect blueberry pie, which has a hint of lime.

    It's was expensive and not worth the money, but food is good. It was about 30$ for what you see... Management didn't care that I was not satisfied by the size of my lobster meal

    Good food, but the mac & cheese with lobster for $22 comes with little fragments of lobster. In fact, no stairway to HEAVEN.

    The lobster roll is deliberately bare. They take pride in the quality of the meat and want the raw flavors to come through. One of the best I've had

    Great food. Build your own Mac n Cheese is a good idea, and half portion was still large. Pretty good beer selection.

    We came all the way from Germany to visit Bar Harbor. I checked foursquare to find some nice restaurants locals enjoy and found the Side Street Cafe. I had the Mac-And-Cheese with Lobster... Perfect.

    A half order of the mac and cheese is enough for a full meal. Jalapeno and bacon is the combo to get!

    Lobster Rolls are incredible. Fries are disappointing (especially after the fries at Finback Alehouse) so stick with the chips.

    For any College of the Atlantic students craving lobster, Side Street Cafe is the place to go. The Lobster Rolls are to die for, and everything else is equally as good... Including the service.
