Bar Harbor specializes in seafood rolls, from Maine lobster ones to local Dungeness crab. You have a couple of dressing options, but stick with the mayo and celery versions. If it’s cold out, get a side of clam chowder with whatever you order. And if it’s summer (or that weirdly random 60-degree day in January), eat your lobster rolls outside on the patio with a refreshing negroni slushie.
