“Absolutely will return to this family restaurant and is great good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Three friends and I are making our way along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT. Island Pond feeds both the Clyde River the Nullegan River. We camped at the Brighton State Park. We decided to enjoy the local food - rather than our own cooking. The Ponds Edge Pub & Eatery was recommended by a local sports store - and so we went.

What a wonderful family oriented restaurant! The waitress was pleasant and very helpful. We noticed an kayaking hanging from the ceiling - and when we asked about it the owner of the restaurant came to our table. The kayak was part of a raffle to raise money for a local playground. We bought three tickets in appreciation for this wonderful town in Vermont and our warm welcome.

Next time we pass through Island Pond the Pond's Edge is a MUST!

“I love this place, it never disappoints!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

I have been here too many times to count. I must say I have always had a superb meal here, and you don't go away hungry! The waitstaff is the friendliest around, and they make sure you're happy with your meal. Just a few steps from the lake, and outdoor seating is available. Family-friendly and often they have themed dinner nights, such as Hawaiian night. Great place to have a beer on tap, a homemade dessert, or a hearty meal amongst friends. They make you feel at home, and it's a place you'll return to again and again.

“Decent place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Things are pretty limited in Island Pond but all in all it's not bad place to eat. The food is consistently okay and the service is always excellent. You have to remember where you're at for this dining experience.

“Good food reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

With very few choices of where to eat dinner in Island Pond we ended up here. And we were glad we did. My husband and I both had the shrimp and haddock dinner but mine was broiled and his was fried. We both declared ours to be excellent. The seafood was cooked just right so it was moist and not dry. The fries were exceptional. We sat in the area closest to the water and had a peaceful meal while being well attended to. There is nothing fancy about this place, just excellent food and friendly people.
