Recently we had dinner at Sips in Southwest Harbor and it was a fantastic experience although it seemed like we were the only one's there who didn't have a full head of silver hair. Maybe all the young people were across the street at the terrible Moose place? Maybe its just the difference between the more mature wine drinking crowd and younger the beer guzzling crowd across the street?
Whatever, inside the cozy Sips they serve up a great selection of wines available as 2 oz "sips", 5 oz glasses or full bottles. They even have a three wine sampler available. The beers available are all exotic German or Belgium specialty beers. The dinners range from 12 - 21 bucks, from steak to pasta, to excellent risottos. Local seafood is featured on the menu and on the specials board.
All in all Sips offers great food in a cozy atmosphere with decent prices. A children's menu is available but its a romantic place for just the two of you if you can get a sitter.
We've also tried Sips for breakfast. They have great coffees and the prices are very reasonable.
