This restaurant is in a beautiful setting. It's very popular and very large but the service was good and the popovers were delicious. They were very welcoming to our dog too!

We were disappointed during our visit to Acadia National Park to find the surrounding restaurants were decidedly ordinary, at best. Unfortunately, the much touted Jordan's Pond House, with its long waiting lines, was not even up to those standards. While the shepherds pie was OK,...More

Tea and popovers at Jordan House are not to be missed! Expect a long wait, and for good reason. We waited an hour and 15 minutes, but it was worth it. The popovers are big puffy buns baked at high heat, causing air bubbles in...More
