Had lunch on the deck today. Beautiful setting overlooking harbor filled with sailboats. Since we had enjoyed the curry chicken salad many times at the Jordan Pond House when the people now running the restaurant at the Asticou had the concession there (it is no longer on the menu at the JPH) we both ordered it in the form of...

Have been twice this August. Once for the Popovers that once made Jordan's Pond famous. When a new company took over Jordan's Pond (now a major bus tour stop) the Asticou Inn rose to the occasion by taking on the former Jordan's Pond popovers as they should be. Pleasing to me was having a reservation and being seated promptly either... More

My understanding is that the management of the Asticou Restsurant is the management that used to be at Jordan Pond House, famous for their popovers. The Asticou Restaurant has always had an amazing view of the harbor, but the food used to be fair at best. It's better now. The popovers were good, if a bit overdone. The menu is... More

We had a late lunch on the outside deck and enjoyed the delicious popovers. The meal took a very long time to be served, but we were not in a rush. Our server was very friendly.

We had lunch here on a perfect August day and sat on the deck. We had the famous popovers. Our lunch was quite good and so was the service.

What a spectacular view of the harbor. There were five of us for a late lunch on the deck outside. Wonderfully relaxed setting and as had been recommended to us --- the popovers with strawberry jam were delicious. Really delicious - as my sister said "we may have to go back just for those popovers." Our party had a lobster... More

We had lunch here the first day of our stay - the lobster stew is worth it!! Our lunch was amazing!! We stayed at the Inn and breakfast was included - it was delicious and different each morning. We had a lobster Bake dinner (private function) and the food was amazing. Above all - the Popovers are a MUST. The... More

Everything abut this place was great. We enjoyed a light lunch from a shady spot on the deck, which had a great view of the water. The food, drinks, and service were excellent. It was really busy, but we never felt rushed in any way. Don't miss the popovers!

A beautiful spot. Can eat on large porch overlooking the bay. Only had drinks and popovers but they were superb.

The restaurant has a lovely covered deck where you can sit to eat and enjoy the view of the harbor. The food was delicious- including the popovers. The wait staff was friendly and diligent. We can't wait to go back next year!
