Little Fern Restaurant
With a lively bar area and a friendly staff that treats you like royalty, Little Fern is the heart and soul of The Claremont Hotel. More than a restaurant, Little Fern is a gathering place with a majestic bank of windows that brings the beauty of Somes Sound to your table. The menu is a celebration of Maine food featuring an eclectic mix of Down East essentials and imaginative creations. Breakfast is served daily for our in-house guests, and Little Fern is open to the public for dinner Wednesday through Monday and Wednesday through Sunday in September and October.
Whether you’re seeking a pre-dinner cocktail, a post-dinner nightcap, or a late afternoon libation to enjoy wherever you wish, it’s time to go see Harry. Tucked away around the corner from our reception area, Harry’s Bar offers a curated list of classic cocktails from simpler, more elegant times. The décor of Harry’s Bar is a tribute to Southwest Harbor’s maritime past. Featuring rich, painted wood and antique nautical accent pieces, you’ll feel like a guest in a sea captain’s home.

Batson Fish Camp
Perched on our private dock with the closest views of the lively boat scene just beyond our shoreline, Batson Fish Camp is your mid-day small plates and pre-dinner cocktail headquarters. The menu features light bites, burgers, salad, and our “soon to be famous” lobster roll. Featuring the easy-going aesthetics of a vintage fishing camp, there’s no better place to be on a sunny day when the winds are steady and the sea is gentle.
