We had a reservation and yet it was a little hectic getting seated - this restaurant is very large and there is a huge crowd every day. Our service was really, really slow and never came back to check on us (group of 8). The food was of good quality and pretty good, better than I would have expected within... More

Over the past 35 years, we have visited Acadia every 3-4 years and we always dine at the Jordan Pond House. The popovers are a must -- outstanding!!! All the entries are great as well. Seating options are inside, outside on patio, or outside lawn tables. We enjoy them all. Lines are long & meals can be pricey, but it... More

We had an enjoyable visit having a picnic lunch and taking photos at the lake behind the restaurant. Beautiful spot and a good excuse to visit the Pond House. The popovers are so delicious and I had a blueberry lemonade...YUM!

Why not do the touristy thing and enjoy a popover on the pretty lawn. We had warm popovers with delicious jam on a cool misty day just before our hike on Jordan Path trail. Crowded but the wait was only 10 minutes for a lawn seat and that is the place you want to be. Gorgeous views. Tasty treats were... More

I was very excited to eat at the historic Jordan Pond House, it was a beautiful day and we'd just finished the Jordan Pond Path hike. We got in without much of a wait as we timed the completion of our hike to end just prior to the busy time and we were seated with a lovely view of the... More

Eating popovers here is one of the most iconic things to do in Acadia. We came here after hiking the Bubbles and it was worth the wait to sit out on the sunny lawn, eat popovers, and drink blueberry lemonade. The quinoa salad I had as a side dish was one of the best things I ate that week. During... More

We did not have a chance to eat here, but they have indoor & outdoor dining. They also have lounge chairs that over look Jordan Pond. Clean bathrooms and a very reasonably price gift shop.

The popovers at Jordan Pond are a traditional thing to do while at Arcadia. While the food is at best average (and expensive), everyone needs to have lunch here at least once. Lunch on the lawn is great and you have a wonderful view of the pond.

We had our round trip through the island and we stopped here casually: the very kind waitress suggested us the popovers as aside of our meal and she was right. They are a special rise bread served hot with butter, it has been a fine suggestion for tasting them.
