Stopped in over Labor Day weekend 2013 with my wife and child.
The place is a poorly organized bar looking to present itself as a Gastro Pub. The food menu is overly ambitious and poorly executed. Service was lacking at best.
Having said all that, they have a GREAT selection of local and global beers. So, consider bellying up to the bar before/after dinner but get a table to eat elsewhere.

OK. Blaze is a new restaurant in the ever expanding area of Bar Harbor on the road that heads to the Jackson Lab. They do have 34 taps but the list that references the beers on each tap was not up to date and really didn't help much. In addition several taps were just listed as Geary's seasonal or Atlantic Brewing seasonal but there was no additional list of what the seasonals were. The tap handles themselves were not much help since most were mounted sideways making it impossible to read the beer they were serving. Finally the first two beers my wife and I asked for had been emptied but a new keg was not available and nothing new was going to replace it. We finally did pick out a decent Otter Creek IPA and a Peak Organic Pale Ale. Both were good.
We were bar hopping and only had an appetizer. We chose the Poutine and found it to be excellent. A very pleasant surprise! The couple next to us at the bar ordered a BBQ pizza and it smelled and looked awesome as well. Bar Harbor is packed with tourists in the summer but Blaze was certainly packed with diners when we left so apparently the food was pretty good.
They had some crisis in the wait staff while we were there and were switching bartenders at 8PM which made bar service rather slow but we decided that was the exception and not the rule. We hope to go back on a slower night when the bar staff could either change kegs or at least answer questions about which beer are actually on tap for the taps that can't be read.
