Boston to Bar Harbor--with a few stops along the way --how does this list look?

Ok, here's the deal. We're headed to Bar Harbor from Boston, beginning our travels Sat am. We'll stop in Oguinquit to see a friend, and then late afternoon head to Boothbay Harbor, where we are staying for the night. So, I'm looking for a casual meal in Boothbay Harbor, Sat night. Or...somewhere relatively close to Boothbay...Then breakfast Sat am, also probably in Boothbay...we'll move on to the Camden/Rockland area around looking for a good lunch spot somewhere along that route. Then we'll make our way to Bar Harbor, where we'll stay from Sun-Sun.
For the most part, I'm looking for good food, served in a casual environment, emphasis on authentic, local cooking. The more history a place has, the better. The more locals, the better too. If the place has a waterview and or picnic tables/outdoor seating, that's great too..we'll have the pup with us and though he can be left behind it would be great to have options where we could bring him with us. One nice evening (without the pup, indoor dining) in Bar Harbor area would be great too, I'm not sure I've found anywhere that's jumping out at me, Hugo's maybe?

I've done some research and here's my list so far. Would love comments, additional suggestions, etc.


Lobsterman's Co-op: this seems like it might be better for lunch but might fit the bill if we're looking for a casual dinner.
Mac Segulls: like the sound of the outside deck on harbor, but is it really touristy? That's ok if the food is good.
Bet's: fish shack on the common. Again, this sounds like it's a great lunch spot, not even sure they are open around dinner hours, unless we go early.
Blue Man Cafe: for breakfast...


Francine, or the Edge at the Inn: both sound great but only dinner right? Don't think we'll be here for dinner, unless it's a really early one.
Waterfront: this sounds right up our alley, right ont he water, great deck, stick to pub-style food, steamers, burgers, that's do-able for lunch.
Young's Lobster Pound: this isn't right in Camden right? But in Belfast....? Need to look at a map to see if it's way out of our way.

Bar Harbor:

Havana, Adel's Lobster Pound, Ben and Bills ice cream, Jordan Pound, Beals Lobster Pier, Jordan's Restaurant (breakfast), any other suggestions greatly appreciated.
