I love the dishes, but I've been told by those who know that this is an awesome, authentic Sri Lankan restaurant, so I guess I'm right (who knew?). Great vegetarian choices.

Take-out with picnic table seating. A real hole-in-the-wall but super authentic. Jerk chicken and pork, plantains, beans and real Jamaican drinks. Ya mon!

There are dozens of lobster joints around but this one is iconic with its campy lobster prop out front and its local ambience. Being in the opposite direction from the island you will find it (hopefully) less crowded.

If you find yourself in Southwest Harbor and in need of lobster, this place is the real deal. Inhale the smell of the sea while you sit on a dock over the water. The tables are made of charts. No pretensions or fluff. Food comes in a plastic basket. Great kids menu so you won't break the bank.

I include this not only because it's a great near-by seafood and burger joint, but because it leads into Bangor Metro Magazine's list of best restaurants of 2018. I can't include that list here but it appears in the printed version of this guide at SeaCat's Rest.

I've had guests rave about how many fish they've caught on this trip although I suspect luck has a bit to do with it. If they let you bring home your catch, and you can't possibly eat it all, consider donating it to the SeaCat's Rest Lobster Bait Charity.

When you don't want to fight traffic and just hang out, take a little (2+ mile) trip to Lamoine Beach and see Bar Harbor and Cadillac Mountain from the water for free. A long and mostly deserted gravel beach, it's good for seeking solitude and rose hips.

Maine Mycological Association. If you are a fungi enthusiast like me, consider checking out the forays planned at https://mainelymushrooms.org/calendar/. There may be one happening while you're here, and the first foray is free. They are all around the state and many will be too far, so see me for alternate mushroom hunting suggestions.

A short path to take while someone else is shopping, along the shore frontage of several stately homes. Start out from Agamont Park and walk toward the Bar Harbor Inn. Keep going until it ends, about 3/4 mile.

This is nowhere near Sorrento, it's in Bar Harbor, but that's how it is named on the map. An interesting walk for those who are new to tides. From Bar Harbor's West Street find Bridge Street and find a tide schedule to time your walk at around low tide. You cross to Bar Island at low tide and follow the trails. Watch the time and return before the tide cuts you off. Fun!
