    Raspberry gimlet was amazing!! We also tried the baked avocado appetizer and it was awesome! The server jasmine was friendly, helpful and took great care of us! Definitely can't wait to go back!

    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

    Lobster mac and cheese was big enough to split 3 ways. And amazing.

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

    Lobster! !!

    Mac and cheese is so so

    Travis Bloom · October 13, 2014

    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

    Waiting time for walk-ins ist round about one hour in the evening. Make a reservation in advance. Friendly service. Large menu. Tried Mac & Cheese and the Nomad Burger.

    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.

    Tobias Negele · August 27, 2014

    Get the lobster roll, lobster mac and cheese and especially their lobster quesadilla

    Steven Y · August 7, 2014
  • Avneesh K.

    Burgers are really great. Definitely worth substituting the chips with the pub fries.

    Avneesh Kohli · August 3, 2014
  • Rory P.

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

    Rory Parness · July 13, 2014
  • Jennifer J.

    Nomad with grilled chicken was tasty- fries weren't hot or exciting- my brothers Mac and cheese was super good and buffalo chicken dip is a must! Service was slow but I would come back to try the mac

    The Lobster Highliner has got to be the best lobster dish I've tasted in this trip. Get it, you won't regret it.

    Create your own Mac and cheese is amazing. The half size portion is enough for your meal.

    Laura Troy · August 1, 2013
  • Lisa R.

    Lobster roll is not cheap but it is worth every penny. . Also any variety of Mac n cheese is a winner. The service is not the fastest but the staff is very courteous and accommodating.

    The Lobster Roll is FAB-U-LOUS. Kids Mac & Cheese is the perfect size for kids.

    Lynn Malko · July 10, 2013

    Lobster stew is amazing. Very milky served with thick lobster chunks. Nomad burger was a good burger. By far impressed with the crab melt. Melts in your mouth. Simply divine.

    We've been here twice in three days. Everything is wonderful an fresh. A great vibe too. This is a Bar Harbor must!

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

    Matthew Hilliker · June 24, 2013
  • Timothy M.

    Food was delicious. Fresh, local ingredients! The service was slow, but we will be back for the food.

    Chicken salad wrap with bacon, tomato and green pepper - what a great lunch!

    The Buffalo Chicken dip is awesome! Food is generally overpriced (it is Bar Harbor) but it is very tasty!

    Recommend the mini burger with salad. Had the nomad burger and caesar!

    Excellent bloody mary's!

    Yeah the lobster stew is good but if your tired of eating that while your in Maine, get the Northern Cuban sandwich. Pretzel bun = awesome!

    Jobu Jemas · August 24, 2012

    Order the lobster roll. It has a more than generous helping of meat for the price. Also, excellent service. Friendly and fast!

    Brendan Rastetter · July 31, 2012

    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.

    Bring your dog! It's dog friendly!
