Awesome lobster! It's a nice and cozy place to dine in. Lots of parking and just by the roadside. Their lobster is good with butter! Shell sea foods are also served and they are as tasty. They have many side dishes too. I got the blue berry pie after my main dish during a dinner.
We wanted to find a place that was outside of Bar Harbor and we were super happy that we found Ruth and Wimpy's.
We had the seafood platter and wings. So much food. The platter was more than enough for two to share.
The scallops, shrimp and haddock were my favorite. You can see in the one photo, holding my scallop, how juicy they were.
The service was friendly and fast. Coming by often to fill our drinks and check on us.
If you ever get near this place you've got to try it.
Great food. Everything was cooked to perfection. Lots of desserts to choose from too
Lovely place! We were trying to find a place for lobster but lots of places were closed in late Oct. Finally, we found here! It was a little busy as locals and tourists both came here for its quality food. But we were seated immediately as we called 15 mins ahead. The people were super nice and helpful. Price was so reasonable comparing to the restaurants in Bar Harbor.
Great service and great food. A lot of side dish options. Totally enjoy it every time.
Last night in town and the family (8 of us) wanted seafood. The restaurant had no open tables but figured out a way to fit us in. The food was good and we didn't have to wait long for it. Staff was very accommodating! I'd go back to eat there in a heartbeat.
Great place to eat! Everything is great here, food taste amazing, service is fast and friendly, our waitress was Stacy and she was the best, nice atmosphere inside, definitely a very good place to stop! Love it. Thank you!
This is real Maine Lobster. Great place. Americana decor that will take you back.
Great lobster tails and a fun place to eat. Portions were very big and everything was cooked as requested. Service was friendly and prompt. Definitely recommended. We brought some desserts home to try tonight.
Great value and best tasting lobster dishes in the area! Lobster stew is rich and delicious and full of meat. Lobster Sub is huge, enough to share. Onion rings are fresh and hand battered. Only wish they didn't close during the winter.
The best tasting food and most amazing prices!
My husband and I along with my brother/sister-in-law flew in from Tampa, FL on Wednesday morning to visit Maine for the first time, and I was CRAVING lobster. We found Ruth & Wimpy's near our lodging area and decided to try it. I ordered the Tails & Tails steamed and my sister-in-law ordered it fried (never having fried lobster) and we shared. We enjoyed the fried but the steamed was ABSOLUTELY delicious! On Thursday I was craving to go back for more Ruth & Wimpy's but we spent the day in Bar Harbor and ate at a restaurant there. We were not satisfied, with the taste, and especially the price. It really left me craving Ruth & Wimpy's even more. On Friday we spent the day exploring all around Maine, looking for a good & reasonably priced restaurant but couldn't find one. We then decided to go back to Ruth & Wimpy's and, once again, we did not regret it. This time I ordered the Tails & Tails & More Tails and again, it was ABSOLUTELY delicious! For my sides, both times, I ordered the house salad, which was great and I ordered the loaded baked potato which was the BEST loaded baked potato that I have ever ate. Their prices were great and their food was delicious! I highly recommend this place and that is why I have given it a 5-star rating.
Fresh fried clams so delicious!! Fantastic specials!!
A favorite, with the friendliest folks you'll find anywhere. Always busy with locals and tourists- a better menu can't be found. Lobster any way you like it, and very reasonable prices. All of the seafood is excellent. Lobster stew, lobster rolls, stuffed lobster tails, lazy lobster. Great specials, traditional New England fare as well as Texan style, thanks to Wimpy's well-traveled palate. Great to dine in and see the impressive collection of vintage license plates from all around the country, as well as other memorabilia. The real deal!
Deliciously fun experience. Our waitress was fantastic and the food was delicious. Huge menu and everything hot and fresh.
A great stop outside of Acadia. We were staying near Ellsworth, so it was an easy ride. The food was great, tap list has local beers, and they welcomed our screaming 2 year old with no problem. Get the fresh blueberry pie, you will be happy.
Love this place!! Excellent Burgers!! They make a Blueberry Margarita that is to die for!!
The best food and the help is awesome I love it
Had the stuffed haddock on Saturday evening and it was so good we went back on Sunday night. This time I had the seafood quesadilla which was also wonderful. My wife doesn't like fish and had the mushroom cheeseburger on rye which she loved. All the locals eat here and the place is always busy! Large portions and reasonably priced. Ruth and Wimpy are REAL people who really care about their customers and it shows.
It was our first time there. The staff was outstanding and the food was excellent. We had lobster and for dessert blueberry pie and raspberry blueberry pie. Everyone there were super kind. Stacey was very kind.
