    Great location, heated seating area

    Stewman's was very welcoming toward my dog. We arrived on a very chilly October night and were seated in a nicely heated dining room over the water. The food and drink were excellent. I would definitely recommend eating here to anyone traveling the Bar Harbor with a pup.

    They love dogs!!!!

    Big sign out front welcoming dogs so you know you are good. Brought water for them and seated us on the heated covered patio. They have a dog menu of chicken, hot dog etc. Treated our dogs like gold. Highly recommend.

    While on vacation, we ate here twice with our rambunctious pup, and both times were great experiences. They have a huge dog friendly deck/dock with seating, much of which was enclosed and heated on our October evenings. The waiters immediately brought water out for the pup and provided good service all around. The food was delicious! We highly recommend the clam chowder and crab/lobster cake app!

    Dockside Dining

    Enjoy Bar Harbor dockside at this delicious restaurant. Clam chowder soup was amazing paired with the refreshing blueberry beer! We were seated immediately and my pup brought a bowl of water. Our waitress provided lots of love to my fur baby!

    Solid Choice

    We ate dinner here with our two Bernese Mountain Dogs. It was a rainy day and we were able to eat under the covering and not have to be outside. The servers were all super friendly and wanted to pet the dogs. They were also super understanding that our younger pup didn’t want to be under the table and instead laid next to me a little in the way. They offered us water for the dogs. The food was also good and the cocktails were amazing. We would definitely come again.

    Dog friendly and delicious

    Our springer had an awesome time collecting compliments (and a bowl of iced water). We’ve never been to a more welcoming place with our dog. Also, 3 family members with varying taste preferences LOVED our food topped off with 1 shared piece of blueberry pie a la mode. Glorious setting with petunias scenting the ocean breeze. We’ll be back!

    Good Food & Very Dog-Friendly

    Took Cookie(My dog) to Stewman’s our first night at Bar Harbor. They were very dog friendly, and even gave Cookie a bowl of water bowl without us having to ask. If you are looking for a Lobster restaurant or just a restaurant in general to bring your pup to at Bar Harbor I recommend this place, would definitely go back!

    Great and super dog friendly!

    We had a great time at Stewman’s. I had seen some reviews calling it a tourist trap, but I didn’t really feel that. We did have to walk down a wood ramp to get to our towel and our pup got scared and pancaked to the ground. The hostess was not concerned at all and after we sat down, they brought out fresh ice water for our girl. In addition, there was plenty of room for her to lay down without being in the way. The human food was also great! We got a lobster dinner, the veggie/beyond burger, and blueberry pie. The fries were amazing, as was the bluebe

    Excellent Dog-friendly Restaurant!

    We gave this restaurant a try and it was fantastic! Located right on the water, the views were beautiful and the food was very tasty. Also, our server, Hannah, could not have been nicer and more accommodating, bringing our puppy fresh water and making him feel welcome. we highly recommend Stewman’s, and look forward to returning soon!

    First Maine Lobster

    We had a great experience at Stewman's downtown. The first pleasant surprise was when they asked whether or not we wanted inside or out. We were able to eat in a heated, enclosed porch on a chilly afternoon. The host and waiter just loved our little dog. The food was great - we had lobster rolls and fresh oysters. The drinks were great too - blueberry mojito and a local beer. Highly recommended for both dog and owners!

    Very Accommodating

    We came in after driving most of the day from Cape Cod. Our pup was restless from being cooped up and barked at the ducks in the harbor a few times. We were embarrassed, but the staff was really cool about it and so were the customers. Other waitstaff and guests came over to see my dog and pet her. Bonus points for the Gorgonzola steak salad being AMAZING!!

    I have to say that it was a bit disappointing that they were out of mussels.. it is a fish restaurant for god sake. But anyway.. we went there for diner with our min pin and the person who brought us to our table was very nice to her but the actual waiter did not say anything to our dog or even asked if she needed a bowl to drink from or anything. There is a “special area” for dogs and kids and there were big dogs who didn’t mind the kids being loud but there were other dogs that started barking because of the kids and the parents obviously not doing anything about it. Overall I would ratethis as ok given that it was summer and we could sit outside for that reason but I would not go back there.

    So accommodating!

    We visited on an 85 degree day this week and this restaurant couldn’t have been better! We sat outside under an umbrella on a deck overlooking the water - and the waitress brought out a bowl of water with ice cubes for Baxter our Boston Terrier before she took our drink order. Great food! Great deck! Great atmosphere!

    Happy at Stewman’s

    We are all happy campers at Stewman‘s lobster Pound. It is the first time this week we’ve actually been able to sit under roof on a patio. Every other place has a nice outside area. The food was very good and our dog was happiest when she got her taste of her very first hamburger. They do charge for it but it was cute to see her so happy.

    They have a separate dog friendly area where he could stretch out and lay down. They were so kind and made sure that he had enough water!

    Don’t order the crab roll. It is a cheap crab dip on a hot dog bun.

    Dinner 7/31/18

    We visited with Bowser on Tuesday evening, 7/31/18. The host brought us to our seat and was considerate to ask if we preferred a shadier table. Once a table was identified, the host also confirmed that we were okay being seated at a table next to another dog. Bowser made a new friend Clifford! There was plenty of space under and around the picnic tables for the doggo to chill. Our waiter brought over a disposable bowl of water for the pup as well. We enjoyed frozen strawberry daiquiris, lobster crab cake, chicken fingers, fries, and steamers. All delish!

    Blueberry Pie is a Must!

    If you are traveling with a dog, this is your spot for lunch. There is a spacious deck with great views of the harbor. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and brought our dog her own bowl of water. All the food was delicious, but the blueberry pie was the best we had during our weeklong trip to Maine.

    Fabulous, fantastic, pawsome!!!

    This is a great place to bring your pup, very dog friendly, fantastic food, gorgeous views. We ate on the huge deck, and lived every succulent morsel. The steamed lobster, NE chowder, mussels, blueberry pie, and service were absolutely top shelf. Put this on your must list.

    Great food with a view and a dog menu!

    The food was yummy! There was plenty of room on the back deck for our Bernese mountain dog to eat with us. They brought him out some water and also had a doggie menu so he had a cheeseburger patty. Great place near the water.

    Nice dog-friendly restaurant

    We've gone to Stewman's with our dog before, and returned because we liked it so much. The location is on the water, the food is good, and of course, we could fine with our dog. Our server wasn't too attentive, but another brought our dog a bowl of ice water, which she enjoyed. The food is good, and we'll definitely return when we're in Bar Harbor.

    Great Experience with the Dog

    Stewman's was busy. There was a large cruise ship in port. We didn't wait for a seat and Rob, our waiter was great. Food was good, beer was good. Very relaxing experience. Look forward to a return trip.

    Great place to eat with a dog

    My husband & I had lunch here today with our 3 year old Chocolate Lab. The food was great and everyone was very friendly. They brought Molly a bowl of water and she had plenty of room to be comfortable. There were two other dogs there at the same time we were.

    delicious and decadent blueberry pie

    Went for a nice lunch. The lobster roll was out of this world. Ended up filling up on blueberry "pie". Aka blueberry mojitos. Yum! And Otis (6 month old puppy) was treated like a king.

    Great food, dog friendly

    Had a delicious meal at Stewman's on the deck you see in the pictures. In June, when it was cooler, the doors were down. Since it was enclosed it was very comfortable, but also kept the atmosphere calm. Our timid dog Lula was comfortable at Stewman's, and everyone working there was polite about her, and welcoming to us.

    Food was tasty. We highly recommend the lobster stew - it is expensive but worth every penny, full of large, fresh chunks of lobster. The blueberry pie dessert was delicious, as was their homemade blueberry lemonade. The food and port friendly atmosphere justified the somewhat high prices.

    great for dogs

    There are actually two signs stating pets are welcome. Views are great, food and drink are pricey, but it is still great because of the pet service. My lab got a bowl of water and sprawled out on the deck.

    A DownEast Maine experience.

    The staff at Stewman's Lobster Pound was very welcoming. They promptly brought our Lab water. A employee even stopped by and offered to take a family photo. Great views and lots of room for our dog to stretch out.
