I took my family of four on a recommendation. The folks who recommended it failed to mention I should stop by my bank to take out a loan. You are a Snack Shack, not a 5 star Steak house. Your food is deep fried and served in Styrofoam. Price it accordingly.

For $54 for 3 people to eat dinner, I could sit down somewhere and enjoy good service. This place is unrealistic if they think you should pay top dollar to seat yourself on a picnic table and eat greasy food. There are better drive up places in the area serving a much higher quality product. Will not visit again

This is my 3rd trip to Jordan's snack bar. I've been disappointed every time. This time it was just as expensive as a nice sit down meal in Bar Harbor and not worth it. Here are the details from this visit: I had shrimp and it was the worst shrimp I have ever had in Maine. I got a box... More

Been here many times over the years, went there twice this past week and the burgers still bring us up from Mount Desert Island after a day of biking at Acadia. They also have a wide variety of choices on the ice cream side, and many ways to make a perfect sundae.

This is a great place to stop and grab a meal. We usually do seafood or burgers. The prices on the seafood is a bit high, but very tasty. The burgers we have had have always been very good and worth their price. Also, we came here one Wednesday for their drive in and the music was excellent as was... More

Amazing food and service. Great portion size and love the fact that you can eat inside or outside or simply take it home. Onion rings are the best in Maine.

We've gone to Jordan's for many years, mostly for ice cream with the kids during our yearly visit to Green Lake. You cannot go wrong with their home made flavors--there is something for everyone. This week we opted to order dinner and our party had grilled chicken, scallops, lobster rolls and onion rings. It was all tasty and everyone enjoyed... More

The have those onion rings that are thin and crispy and fabulous! The fried whole belly clams are very good too, but it's the onion rings that get me to stop and wait in line.
