If you love lobster there is no fresher unless you get up at dawn and go out with a lobsterman!

Had a family dinner here in early September.  The place was very crowded with a 30-minute line out the front door.  Still it was a beautiful evening, and everyone was in a festive mood.  People could order drinks and take them back to the line.  Once in the shop, we got to choose our own live lobsters (along with sides) and then had a wide variety of seating options.  Again, once seated, things were festive and everyone seemed to be having a great time and great meal.  Staff were friendly and engaging.  If I ever find myself in this corner of the world again, I will be sure to return.

Worth the drive, from Bar Harbor! Mussels was excellent, but the "taste" of lobster, from Daniel M., made my day!! Thank you, so much!

The food and staff were excellent. We went 6:00 on a Saturday. Place was busy but we caught the line just right. We ordered 2 lobster rolls. 1 traditional, 1 garlic. We also ordered corn on the cob and corn bread. The lobster was perfectly cooked and super fresh. Melted in the mouth. The darling was just a hint and not over powering at all. So good!!! As for the sides - the corn bread was good as was the corn, although that could have been warmer. But, we were not there for the corn. 😂 We were there for sunset. Not the best location to watch a sunset, but again 🦞. We very much enjoyed it and would go back. Enjoy!

Food was delicious and good size portions, atmosphere was amazing being right by the water, employees were nice and worked well as a team, price was good for the area and food. We got the pan seared shrimp basket which came with fries and coleslaw, cup of clam chowder, 1/2 lb of mussels, a beer from one of the local bar harbor breweries that was on tap, blueberry pie a la mode, and a crab roll which came with chips:)! Can't wait to come back!

We just happened upon Beal's when we were driving through, and decided to try it when we saw the car in front of us (Maine license plates) pull over to go there. So glad we did. You choose your lobster from a tank in front. We also had steamers. They throw the lobster, clams and corn (if ordered) into a bag, and cook it in front of you. Everything was super fresh. The garlic lobster roll was packed!  We also appreciated that it was wheelchair accessible!  The staff was friendly and very helpful.

I'm from Ohio but like most people love lobster and generally never get enough lobster when I order it back in my home state. Ordered a 3 1/2 pound lobster. For the first time in my 60 years of life had just the right amount of lobster to eat.  it was delicious. Love the atmosphere at Beal's will definitely be back on another vacation partially just to eat at Bealls !   Next  time I'll eat at Beal's several times while exploring the island

There aren't enough stars to rate this fantastic place. This quintessential Maine lobster pier/restaurant operates at quasi industrial levels with superb people helping at every turn. We had a snafu with our dinner Wednesday night which manager Matt made right promptly, and asked us to please return.

We went back on Friday night and had the very best lobster, steamers and mussels ever! My wife is a New England coastal kid who really knows her seafood. Nothing can compare to eating local seafood caught just hours earlier. Definitely a find and a great spot.

Had steamers one night and returned the following night to have lobster! It was fabulous! Others had mussels, shrimp and the lobster roll which was overflowing with lobster. Everything was very very good. Highly recommend this restaurant and will return when we are in the area again.
