Driving from Boston to Bar Harbor - half way lunch spots?

Hi, we are driving from Boston to Bar Harbor next weekend with our 11 month old and will need to stop for lunch somewhere. Since we'll need to give her a break from the drive, want to go somewhere with good foor and/or ambiance/view, not a quick take out stop. Anything you can recommend that is somewhat on the way (off of rt 295) would be appreciated. Thanks!

  1. I know you did not ask this, but just offering some driving advice. If you take Rt 3 out of Augusta you will be on back roads but a nice country drive which is slow going, or you can take Rt 95 to Bangor then Rt 1 or 1A /3 to Bar Harbor. Last year I travelled both ways, and I think going the BAngor route is faster, but boring on the highway.
