We visited Acadia in early Nov. and it was very dark at 4pm ;)

but dawn was very early. Locals believe that Acadia should be in the next time zone - us, too.

We had a fantastic road trip up the coast for our second Acadia visit in November, 2015. I checked and all of the restaurants we loved are still in business!

We generally carried picnic food with us during the day as we are hikers but our restaurant favorites were:
in Acadia/Bar Harbor

South of Acadia
Thai Sana, Ellsworth, ME
Waterfront Restaurant, Camden, ME

On the way up the coast from Boston to Acadia, we enjoyed:
Twin Seafood (lunch), Acton, MA
Good Thymes (dinner), Lowell, MA
Ray's Seafood (lunch), Rye, NH
Libby's Market, Brunswick, ME

And, If you venture to Gloucester from Boston
YOU MUST VISIT The Causeway - one of our all-time favorite restaurants!

We love seafood and generally forgo fine dining so if my memory serves me, almost all of these recommendations are family-type (and sometimes small carryout markets with a few tables, like Libby's) where we went for no-frills lobster, lobster rolls and lobster/chowder.
Enjoy your travels and family, Elaine. It's good to "see" you ;) Colleen
