Thanks to trip advisor, my husband found this gem. After visiting Asticou Gardens we crossed the road and were treated to a fabulous lunch on the terrace. From the scrumptious popovers(ginormous), crisp salads, fabulous cream based soup, killer quiche, crab cake lettuce wraps. My husband's 53rd birthday lunch will be remembered. His mom wants to go back for dinner. Popovers... More

Three couples decided to meet here for dinner. Our drink orders were not filled correctly, the bar ran out of vermouth for an old fashioned, and my G and T had the wrong gin. The prices didn't match the quality of the food. Mussel appetizer had no broth for the accompanying bread and the popovers were overcooked and dry on... More

My husband and I were visiting the Bar Harbor, Maine area for 3 days and we ate lunch twice at the Asticou Restaurant. Both days my husband had the fish sandwich and I had the fish sandwich the second time we had lunch there. The fish was so fresh and the batter was not thick like in many places and... More

You can't go wrong with this place when looking for a place to eat while visiting Acadia. Excellent food and even better service (thanks Jon and help from Kyle).

When Jordan Pond House popovers and seafood chowder went belly up, we started going to Asticou Inn for our "fix." Can't beat it!

Met a group of girlfriends for traditional (Acadia Corp recipe) popovers and had a delightful day on the deck overlooking Northeast Harbor. Attentive and pleasant service, delicious popovers and even better blueberry mojitos!! This is the way life should be!

This was the perfect ending to lovely day. We had early supper sitting on the deck, with lobster quiche and a glass of chardonnay. The weather was perfect and so was the view.

We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed a beautiful view from the deck as a bonus. Service was impeccable, food was delicious and the blueberry pie a la mode the best. I had the spinach salad with cranberries and local goat cheese topped with a crab cake. Husband had the lobster roll. Since this is now run by the folks... More

Went for dinner with two little ones. Everyone was very nice. Popovers were better than Jordan Pond. Ordered crab cakes and calamari for appetizers (very good). Then steak (sauce would have been better on side). It's very old school to put on the steak. However as Texans, we are used to meat standing on its on with no sauce or... More

Acadia Corp, who lost the Jordan Pond concession, is now partnering with the Asticou, and the JP chef under Acadia has moved here also. While slightly different, the lobster stew is equal in quality to Jordan Pond's. I had the lobster stew, which comes with 2 popovers, butter, strawberry and/or blueberry jam and crab cakes. My husband also had the... More
