  • Fabulous drink specials during happy hour!
  • There were so very MANY things wrong with our dinner: 1) the multiple pieces of shell we found in the crab cake appetizer; 2) wine was room temp; 3) lobster linguine had zero taste and chewy lobster.
  • Great lobster prices and variety! Save room for dessert as creme brle was amazing!
  • Lobster tail, clam chowda, crab cakes and bar island burger were excellent!
  • Katelyn is a cool bartender!
  • Really lovely meal! We shared a bunch of appetizers, the standouts were the stuffed mushrooms and crab cakes. The lobster salad was also excellent! It was my birthday and they comped dessert for us!
  • We loved this place!! I'm not a fan of crab cakes but theirs was really good. The lobster in the picture went so well with the rice. Even our pasta dish was delicious. Highly recommend Galyn's.
  • Good lobster deals if you eat before 6pm. The staff was friendly but in a hurry to get us out after we had dinner..
  • The food here is not very memorable.
  • Nab a second floor window seat for some nice views of the harbor. Lobster biscuits were puff pastry in lobster cream sauce. Blueberry and apple crumble was superb. Good ways to start and finish meal
  • Sit on the balcony or the adjacent room for a great view of the park and harbor. Great for people watching.
  • They offer many Gluten Free options on their menu.
  • Great boiled lobster and lobster tail. Service was great too!
  • They have a good happy hour. It is from 3 to 6 daily,
  • Seafood here is lovely. Not as great as some of the other restaurants - but still good. Salmon special was very chargrilled. Prawn linguine was very nice.
  • Spinach and salmon salad was amazing. Also the sun dried tomato and artichoke chicken was perfect. Probably be back tomorrow.
  • Best lobster in town and a very fair price. The staff is friendly and the view on either the upstairs or downstairs is breath taking. Highly recommend gaylans
  • Best house salad dressing I have ever had- I LOVE THE BEEF TIPS!
  • closed:( -- i'm sad
  • From a local: best restaurant in Bar Harbor! They offer blue cheese crumble for salads. Bar Harbor burger is unreal and the tomato olive linguine is delicious!!
