C-Ray's Lobster

I don't usually write posts about a restaurant but C-Ray's Lobster is special.

One of the clerks in a shop in Bar Harbor said about C-Ray's: It's like those places down South. You look for the pick-up trucks and know that the food is good. There were a couple of pick-up trucks at C-Ray's but they were tourists. Still the food and service were awesome.

Don't let the appearance scare you off. C-Ray's operates in a little shack behind a residence on the way into Bar Harbor. There is no indoor seating. You order inside at a refrigerated case next to the live lobster tank and they bring your food out to you. There are some picnic tables with umbrellas but several parties were just eating in their cars.

We got there around 6:00 on a Thursday night and they were already sold out of some of their menu items. The line was literally out the door but moved fast and the food was served quickly as well. There are no indoor restrooms, but there was a portable toilet fully equipped with hand sanitizer.  The staff was very jovial and the crowd was as well.

While you won't want to eat there every night you won't want to miss it either.

Their web site is here and the TripAdvisor reviews are here.
