The only highlight of the visit was the beautiful setting and the efficient and gracious lady who was handling the reservations. From there on, all was downhill. Our server was not friendly, uncommunicative to the point of not answering our questions, and generally in a...More

Although the restaurant recently switched management (now at Asticou Inn), they still have the popovers. They were the least good/intereesting thing we had for lunch. The vegetable risitto was a surprise favorite - flavorful, well cooked and filled with fresh vegetables. Other items were decent...More

I really looked forward to eating here. So much so I made a reservation 2 months in advance. But, unfortunately, it did not live up to the hype in my opinion. The good: we were seated early. The reservation process and check in process was...More

Good choice of gluten free, my friend said the popovers were delicious, clam chowder good and gluten free. Main courses poor - salad big but just all plonked on the plate and not adjusted to taste and flavour - I didn't think Lobster and olives...More

We enjoyed a nice mid-afternoon lunch/snack. Very good seafood chowder and classic popover. Very good ambiance with a view over Jordan Pond to the Bubbles. Very pleasant when not crowded.

We had the popover tea. Popovers are perfect for tea, I don't know why they aren't served more often. You get 2 popovers and a pot of tea (I had Breakfast tea, my dining companion had Earl Grey), served with butter and strawberry jam. The...More

After an early morning hike, we arrived at the Jordan Pond House shortly before 11:00 opening time. We were seated after only a short wait, even without a reservation. The popovers were worth the effort! The other dishes we saw being served looked super too.

Not sure why this gets such high ratings. The popovers were burnt, the chowder was basically a bowl of steamed milk and the service was poor. Walk the pond. Forget the food.

If you don't make reservations or don't go at an off time, expect to be given a buzzer, while you explore the gift shop and Pond area. My BLTT was very good as was the tart blueberry lemonade. Quick service, once seated. even at 2:45,...More

We didn't make reservations. I had read a previous review where someone had said they were told by the host that they only take reservations for 1/3 of the tables and they save the rest for walk in's.

A popover is a light, hollow roll made from an egg batter similar to that of Yorkshire pudding. It is best to ask to talk to the Chef when you have an allergy. That is what I do as I am allergic to eggs, onions and... More
