The Lompoc - Bar Harbor

The Lompoc has been one of our favorite Bar Harbor restaurants ever since we first started coming here for vacations.

The Lompoc opened in 1989 as a small café and gradually evolved into what it is today: a slightly larger small café. Over the years, we have enlarged the space, adding a garden, a bocce court, a larger bar and a heated open air dining room.

We change our menu three times a year, every year, because we choose to use seasonal fish and locally grown, organic produce, and because we like to try new things. Some items return due to requests and some we can never change.

We have been recommended by "The New York Times", "Gourmet Magazine", "Yankee Magazine Travel Guide" and were voted the regional winner of "favorite restaurant" in a 2002 contest sponsored by the Maine Department of Agriculture.

One of the great things about the Lompoc is that even if you don't have dinner here, you can still come for the music. There are talented musicians on stage every Friday and Saturday night. Blues, rock, jazz, folk, bluegrass, soul...the offerings run the gamut. And if you have a talent to share, come down on Thursday nights in the summer for Open Mic night.

Our bar features locally made Atlantic Brewing Company ales on draft, 15 wines and ports by the glass, and an array of specialty cocktails, including the Lompoc Blueberry Cosmo and the Limoncella Lemon Drop. We welcome visitors to join the zany bunch of regulars at our bar; we'll take good care of you. Or stop by for a game of bocce. It's as much fun as a game of billiards, but you don't have to put down your beer while you play.
