Picture perfect!!!!!! We ate outside with a view of the pond and mountains. Out server Jena 9from Somers Ct) was great. She was very personable and in fact we felt all the staff seemed to really enjoy their job. We had wine and a wonderful cheese sampler and of course shared a popover. No complaints. Lots of walking paths leading... More

We heard about the popovers and were told to go off hours to get them. We got there at 4pm, we could have sat down, but it is a bit time consuming. You check in at the front desk, walk around to the outside and wait again to be seated in a crowded area. The popovers looked good, but wish... More

This is a location that is also a must visit but go very early or after 5:00pm otherwise you will never find a place to park. One of the big drawing cards is Tea and Scones on the back lawn and it is always busy during this time. Late afternoon or early evening is ideal because of the smaller crowds,... More

If you want to be in complete peace with the rest of the world, visit Jordan Pond. You can visit Jordan Pond, which is very easy to get from Park Loop Road!

We visited Acadia on a foggy day, but still loved Jordan Pond. The teenagers hiked around the lake and we did a partial trip. We loved eating popover sundaes outside. The presentation was great and the food better. One sundae was good for several people. Our server Jacob from Poland was great also!

Jordan Pond is a beautiful stop along the Acadia NP Loop. Like others, we stopped for afternoon 'tea' of popovers and jam. Delicious! We also had the blueberry ice tea and split a sandwich. Very much should be on your lists of Acadia attractions.

The view was so beautiful. The popovers with strawberry jam are very good. The lobster roll was good. The chicken salad was good. The buffalo meatloaf sandwich was a crowd pleaser. We liked it so much we went there twice. Our waitress was very good.

Plan on a wait to get in, but it is worth it to get to sit out on the lawn to see the beautiful view and take in a little piece of Acadia's history with the popovers and tea.

The 2 mile hike around Jordan Pond begins near the restaurant and follows the shore all the way around. The pond (lake) itself is quite large with deep blue water surrounded by thick forest. The twin bubbles (mountains) overlook the lake at the far end. The right half of the trail is relatively easy going but the left half is... More

My family hiked Jordan Pond in the morning, around 9am and it took us about 2 hours total. We have two young children, so adults and teens could probably do it in 1 and a half. We loved the trail! Gorgeous views of the pond. They even had a boat launch area if you have a raft or kayak. My... More
