Wheelchair Jimmy Accessibility Comments

We enjoyed a wonderful lobster dinner at Galyn’s in October 2018 on our tour of New England. Galyn’s was recommended to us as one of Bar Harbor’s best seafood /lobster restaurants and it did not disappoint. It’s located along Main St. in town, just 1/2 block up from the waterfront wharf, and is a cozy, multi-room Victorian-era boarding house. The pictures aren’t great, but the restaurant is terrific!

WARNING: Main street in this part of Bar Harbor is somewhat steep, and there is a 10-12 inch step at the entrance followed by a brief landing and then another 10-12 inch step. The main dining room is relatively large with no steps, and there’s lots of room between tables. There is a flight of step to the upstairs dining and bar which is not accessible.

There is a large wheelchair accessible restroom off the main dining room on the 1st floor.

Although I rated Galyn’s a WJAR 2 because of the 2 large steps at the entrance, the seafood is terrific and we loved the atmosphere. Hopefully you won’t let the 2 steps at the entrance stop you from enjoying this wonderful Bar Harbor restaurant.

    When you get to Bar Harbor don’t miss Galyn’s although getting into the restaurant will require some assistance. But the Lobster is fresh and delicious!
