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

  • 1

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.
