Best meal we had in Bar Harbor! Our waiter, Mark, was super knowledgeable and friendly. The nachos appetizer was delicious, as was my salad. They even have several GF desserts! We tried the flourless chocolate cake and it was amazing! My non-celiac, gluten-eating parents even loved it!

By far THE BEST place we ate while staying in Bar Harbor. It was so good we went two nights in a row! Our server was Mark who was a great guy and made me feel very confident that my meal would be gluten free. Everything on the menu that can be made gluten free is marked with an asterisk. There are many dinner options and also some great desserts! Wish we lived closer to Bar Harbor, we would visit again.

The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. They were able to accommodate my celiac, add well as a friend's gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian diet. We ordered take out, and ate at the park across the street. I ordered the old farm salad without cheese and my friend had the cauliflower steaks. Both delicious!

The food is incredibly high quality, and the setting is wonderful. A lot of the restaurants in Bar Harbor are crowded and noisy. Galyn’s Has a beautiful interior and a relaxing feel. There are plenty of gluten-free options on the menu, and the staff is very respectful and accommodating. If you go here, try their housemade blueberry lemonade. I had that with a lobster salad, and it was delicious. A classic Maine meal, gluten-free style!

GF options clearly marked on menu. They reassured me of the kitchen’s practices in avoiding cross contamination. Food was ok, but this could have been attributed to us doing takeout versus eating it fresh in the restaurant.

So many wonderful options for gluten free. Not just salads and grilled chicken. I had the halibut over blueberry rice with a berry salsa on it and grilled asparagus. Best meal ever! Everything was cooked to perfection. Good portion sizes. Tender fish. Great flavors! My husband got a filet with potatoes with herbed butter and asparagus. We ate every bit. So delicious. They had alot of gluten free desserts too. I had a cappacino sundae. Check this place out. You won’t regret it.

Some GF menu items. Not extensive. GF salad came with bread on the side so I have to wonder how strict they are in the kitchens. A nice place. Service speed not suited to children. GF items mostly salad type. No bread replacement options for sandwiches.
