We stopped there on our way back from Scoodic Point out near Winter Harbor which is part of Arcadia National Park!! I enjoyed the fish chowder so much I went back two more times. Also liked their fried clams and the strawberry smoothie was good too!

As we were staying at a hotel in Ellsworth, we decided to try this place for take-out dinner on our way from Acadia to Hotel. We ordered fried clam and fried headdock in dinner set as takeout. It came along with fries, small dinner roll and coleslaw. Nothing special, but good food to drink with beer. They don't carry Beer,... More

I was in town visiting friends and we decided to hit this place up for ice cream and got some fried shrimp too. Everyone liked their ice cream flavors. I got blueberry and it was so good. The fried shrimp were little baby shrimp and perfect for an afternoon snack. The staff was friendly and there were plenty of areas... More

I have been visiting Jordans for decades. It is a fun place to bring the family. A place for the little ones to play. A relaxing picnic area for guest to enjoy their meals. The food is good. The portion size is big enough. The downside is that it is not inexpensive. Although we visit the area for over a... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch and got their fried clams. Clams were very good and served with fries. Also got a soft serve ice cream afterwards as a treat. We sat outside and ate since it was a nice day but they also have inside seating. Definitely would go back here. Busy place but very friendly.

Great fried clams, lobster roll and coleslaw. Very simple...order at a window and eat outside on picnic tables or in an air conditioned room next door. Clean. Nice staff. Good local ice cream. Playground in back for kids.

We stopped because of the long lines. Glad we did. Since they had fried clams on special, we decided to give it a try, though most fried clams I tasted elsewhere usually not great. Surprise, surprise, it was tender, juicy, and very tasty. We also ordered fried scallops and crab rolls, all dinner meals that came with fries, Cole slaw,... More
