20-something couple off to Acadia Nat Park for Memorial Day weekend. Where to eat? We're staying at Eden Village outside Bar Harbor and will be hiking during the day. We don't want to spend a lot of time in Bar Harbor, but will need dinner Saturday and Sunday nights. What places in Bar Harbor, and/or SW and NE Harbors will be open for the season and are Maine-ish? One of us is a newbie to Maine, lobster, and fried clams. Any good spots nearby? (If only Tidal Falls was still open!)
Also, is the A-1 still good and open for lunch? We'll be passing through Gardiner on the way to Bangor on Friday. Or is there somewhere else to stop? Thanks!
