We recently visited Island Park and decided to try Pond's. There is no sign to say if you need to wait to be seated, or if you are to seat yourself. First Mistake. After being seated our waitress took our order and an hour and a half later our food was brought out by one of the cooks. Our waitress was busy, with one table just not ours. The other poor little waitress that was there had the other 5 tables. The waitress did not come by one time to tell us of our wait, how sorry she was, or how busy the cooks may be. She did throw our ticket to us as she walked by, and still at that time made no verbal comment to us. "How was your food?" etc.
The food was very good....the waitress J.......was terrible.

Much better than average and prices are very reasonable. The menus offer a wide selection. We ate in a group of 5 then 9 and no one was disappointed! The kitchen is pretty slow though. We had a dinner and a lunch here. It takes them about 35 minutes to prepare your food, even sandwiches. Wait staff is friendly and try to be helpful but could be just a tad faster on refilling drinks, checking back, etc... But, the food is really terrific and well worth the wait - just don't be in a rush. My new favorite place in Island Park!

The new Ponds Lodge is wonderful. After visiting last year we swore we would never go back, but after the remodel we gave it a go. I am so glad we did. We have been twice in the last couple of weeks and tonight will be a third. The food is excellent and the service was great!

The Lodge has been newly remodeled and now contains a restaurant, bar, C-store and pizza joint. The food and service were great. We had prime rib one night and pizza the next. The prices are higher than they used to be, but the owners put a lot of money into upgrading the facilities so I guess that is inevitable.
