Acadia has a variety of dining experiences. In the bar room, come as you are and order small plates, a burger, the bar tasting menu or simply cocktails, wine or sake. The main dining room is a fancier, but still relaxed affair, offering a choice between the 5- or 9-course tasting menu. Advance reservations required. Here a few dishes from all three menus.
