The Jordan Pond and the Jordan Pond House Restaurant are a famous combination in Acadia National Park. It is difficult to separate them.
A late 1800's version of the restaurant first established the tradition of having tea & popovers on the lawn while overlooking Jordan Pond and the North and South Bubble Mountains. The original bulding was destroyed by fire in 1979 and was later rebuilt with the help of private funds.
The Jordan Pond House Restaurant is open 11:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. late May through late October and is operated by a private business concessionaire on park land. Reservations are recommended by calling 207.276.3316.
The Jordan Pond Shore Trail circumvents the pond. A Carriage Road is passes the restaurant and pond on the west side running north and south. Wildwood Stables, to the southeast, offers carriage rides for a reasonable price. The Island Explorer Shuttle Bus has a pickup and drop-off point at the restaurant.
