Tips

  • the only restaurant officially in the park loop road. the popovers and strawberry jam are a mount desert island tradition, and the cranberry island salad is amazing
  • Enjoy afternoon tea
  • Popovers, of course!
  • Their homemade freshly squeezed lemonade is amazing!!
  • Make a reservation as it gets crazy and try the lobster stew with popovers! Expensive but fabulous
  • ask for blueberry jam instead of strawberry. the strawberry one is good, but the blueberry one is a blast :)
  • Popovers an blueberry tea -Perfect for bikers and hikers and anyone actually.
  • Get the popovers and a beverage and relax after your hike.
  • Popover worths the hype
  • History dates back to the 1920s as a humble restaurant for wealthy families from Boston and NY. Back then, you got two popovers with tea for $1.90. Today, its $8 ... still worth a stopover
  • Afternoon Tea has a limited menu but exceptionally fast service. Popover and seafood chowder were excellent.
  • Oh the popovers are divine! Make sure you put the strawberry jam on them. Love their buffalo meatloaf, too.
  • They have very friendly staff and the popovers were good, but the lobster stew was a bit watery and bland. I didn't like their risotto either.
  • Even if you don't plan to eat here you have to stop in to enjoy some tea and popovers outside with the view of Jordan Pond in the background.
  • Like everyone else, came for the popovers (didn't disappoint) but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the rest of the menu. The turkey club was great, for instance: fresh, thick-sliced turkey!
  • Take the hike around the pond and earn dessert!
  • Skip the "seafood chowder" (both my husband and I's was more like "potato chowder") and order the Specialty Beverage and Popovers. 2 popovers (delicious) and house made - daily - lemonade.
  • First time ever having popovers...so I guess starting at a legendary popover restaurant wasn't too shabby.
  • The view is pleasant, the popovers are fresh & tasty, and it is a nice place to relax, but the rest of the food is painfully below average and overpriced. It is amusement park level price-to-quality.
  • They've dropped the original strawberry jam they used to serve, but the popovers are still the star of the menu.
