We tried to eat here in the early afternoon but the wait was too long. We decided to walk the dog around the pond. The walk was beautiful with plenty of photo ops of the family walking. We walked counter clockwise so the more difficult part of the walk was the last third of it. When we finished we were able to get seated immediately before the restaurant changed over to dinner. This place is famous for its popovers and they don't disappoint! They come with butter and jam. I had mine with a bowl of creamy lobster stew that was deelish. The staff was courteous and friendly and did not rush us out. At the end the waiter offered to take our picture with the Bubbles in the background.
