We were worried when new management took over this year. Not to worry. It is better than ever. The sea food chowder was much improved. As good as i have ever tasted. And the popovers, butter, and strawberry jam were wonderful. They have also upgraded the lawn seating including tables and umbrellas.

Nice to drink brewed tea from a Hall tea pot. The popovers are a DO NOT MISS. You get two with tea, but are served one at a time so you get a warm out of the oven fresh one. Recommended. .

This restaurant so well worth finding! Amid our visit to Acadia Nat'l Park to see Cadillac Mt, we got hungry and happy to find that this "house" was actually a restaurant! We had seen a lot of the park by mid-afternoon so a snack was much needed! We had popovers w/ iced coffee outside at an umbrella table while watching kayakers on Jordan Pond with a backdrop of double mountains! The waitstaff was plentiful, available & college-age. A happy staff makes for a happy customer! We found out a little more info on the park & area from a waiter who happened to be attending the same college my father graduated from about 70 years ago! Popovers were huge and delicious! They were accompanied w/ butter and Maine made strawberry jam that we now wish we had bought some to take home! And if you like iced coffee or cappuccino, this is the place for you! This is like the "icing on the cake" for a visitor to Acadia Nat'l Park! Outside dining was great & inside seating is available.

Beautiful setting in Acadia Natl Park...specifically, eating outdoors overlooking lake under your umbrella. Make a reservation in advance to minimize wait time and don't expect a great deal from the food. Iced Cappuccino and popovers were good, though! Ideal spot for a light lunch break if can coordinate w the hiking schedule!

We stopped here with our rowdy crew of 4 kids under the age of 5. When entering the restaurant I thought the food would not live up to the reputation as it has a corporate kinda feel with khaki-attired wait staff. However, our waiter Jakub handled us with a smile and aplomb. And, the food was delicious! Popovers are not, in fact, overrated. The chai tea was surprisingly delicious. The kids Mac and cheese with baked apple slices were a hit as well. After fueling up, we all went outside to run around in the rain and walk around the pond. In the good weather this place must be spectacular. Absolutely stop here.
