The garden patio is lovely. Several GF items to choose from and server took my allergy seriously. The seafood risotto was really good. Food came out quickly

Menu was very clear about what was gluten free, staff was knowledgable and even offered many gluten free dessert options (wonderful creme brulee!) Ordered a chicken sandwich with a gluten free bun— bun was good but not a fan of bread anyways 😂. Overall vibes of the restaurant were cozy, bustling, and organized. Fantastic!

Good selection of gluten free items and the staff were very good about making sure that the kitchen staff were informed of the allergy. The food and service were great, the desert options were also great.

We ate here on our last day in Bar Harbor, and it was the best meal of the trip! They have a heated outdoor patio which is lovely for cool Maine nights. There are plenty of gluten-free options on the menu, and the wait staff make a note for the chef to make sure everything is made safely. I had the Seafood Cioppino & it was amazing. They even included a gluten-free roll for dipping, because they didn’t want me to miss out on any of the deliciousness.

We had heard good things about McKay’s. I called ahead to ask about the menu items that would be available GF and they had accommodations for most items. My daughter had two appetizers for dinner (b/c those are the things on the menu she wanted - wings and bacon wrapped scallops), I had a salad with scallops. It was all delicious! I was also offered a fully GF beer that was always GF (not G removed) and it was delicious. I hadn’t had a beer in years! We sat outside and it was a lovely ensign all around.
