Xanthus Restaurant and Bar features contemporary American fine dining, genuine welcoming hospitality and unparalleled views of Somes Sound, the islands and mountains of Acadia. The kitchen prepares an ever-changing menu focusing on fresh ingredients, bold flavors and careful presentation focused through the lens of French technique. Our staff strives to prepare selections in-house, and prides itself on freshness and variety.

The Boathouse

Our newly renovated Boathouse Restaurant is open during the months of July and August for a light lunch from 12 to 2 in the afternoon and cocktails from 5 to 9 in the evening. The accordion-style doors on the front of the restaurant allow all tables to take in the unparalleled view of Somes Sound for a uniquely serene experience.
