Great Lobster and Seafood. Lobster Rolls and Fish & Chips are great. A really good Maine experience.

OH MY WORD!  This place is absolutely outstanding in every way!  From the systems in place to get you through the line to food arriving at your table in a less than expected wait time the entire meal was fantastic.  We've been back several times and it's just getting better each time.  Love the personality and help and how efficient they are with the operation and very appreciative of the new dining space upstairs!   Everything from the Steamed Lobster, Lobster Roll, Blackened Fish Taco and fresh fried French Fries  made for a wonderful family meal.  

Price was competitive at $17.00 a pound, and the flavors and service along with the bar offings rounded out a fantastic day visiting the Cranberry Islands.  Don't let the long lines fool you, get in line, meet some new friends and get some of the best food Maine has to offer!  Thanks for another great meal!

Delicious fresh lobster. They assign you a table, so there is no worries about finding a table. Friendly service. Dog friendly. Amazing desserts too. Check i

The GOAT! Been here 4-5x. The lobster could not be fresher - really feels like saltwater. Lots of gluten free options if you have an allergy - including fried food. If you’re coming you must get the lobster bites - I’ve never seen them anywhere else and they’re flavorful and delicious. They’ve got different butters and flavors for lobster rolls if you’re looking to branch out, but all the classics are perfect as well. Never had a dish that was less than 11/10. Great drink options and views as well!!

Can’t recommend this place enough! Definitely a spot to get lobster in Southwest Harbor. Love lobster available as well as phenomenal lobster rolls and plenty else. Deserts are incredible, I highly suggest blueberry pie with ice cream. The workers there were extremely friendly and it was busy when we were there and the manager/owner was extremely kind and apologetic about our wait, which I didn’t even think was very long.

This place is amazing! We stopped by for lunch- the service was amazing and the staff was very friendly! The lobster roll was one of the best we have had while here in Maine- the chips were good portion, so my husband and I split them. Overall, we highly recommend this place for great atmosphere and amazing food!

If you love lobster and can't tolerate gluten, this place is a must. I got the traditional lobster roll on a gluten free bun. It was nice and light, super simple and fresh. French fries are good too.

The menu is rather small and the items are marked with a GF star or a can be made GF star.

So the service is quick but there is a line you stand in to order your food. This line can be long and it's not shaded. If their food wasn't so good, I wouldn't stand out there for the 20 to 40 minutes it might take. Once you order, they send you to a table and the food comes out amazingly fast. They bring it to you on cafeteria trays and that's pretty much it.

We stayed in Southwest Harbor and found Beal’s by accident. We loved the outside seating areas and the efficiency of the food ordering, serving, and preparation. I had an enormous lobster Cob salad. It was pricey, but so flavorful. My husband and I shared the Maine mussels which were small but tasty. He had a grouper fish basket and said it was delicious and hot.

Excellent location right on the harbor. We enjoyed watching the lobstermen pull in and offload their hauls during our meal. The portion sizes are excellent and the food is sea-fresh... what more do you need? A must-stop in the Southwest Harbor area!
