Xanthus Restaurant and Bar features contemporary American dining, genuine welcoming hospitality and unparalleled views of Somes Sound, the islands and mountains of Acadia. A buffet breakfast is served daily at Xanthus when the hotel is open. In the off-season June, September and October the hotel bar will be open in the evenings offering small plate appetizers, a full bar and wine list. Our staff strives to prepare selections in-house, and prides itself on freshness and variety.
