I had a late lunch here after vigorous hike up Pemetic Mountain. The menu isn't labeled gf nor are the famous popovers but our server was knowledgable about what is or could be made gf. I had the lobster salad Nicoise salad and a very funky cider and didn't get sick.
I was so happy to discover how gluten free and knowledgeable the staff is, here. My family has been coming to the Jordan Pond House for years and I didn’t want to say no this year, just because I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease. While it was heartbreaking to have to forgo the popovers this year, I was thrilled that almost everything else on the menu was either GF or could be. The server told me that they have tried many times to do a GF popover, but they haven’t been able to. Regardless, I could enjoy their fabulous lemonade and a very tasty sandwich.
They have some gluten free options on their menu. Unfortunately, our waitress was not knowledgeable and didn't seem too worried about allergies/sesitivities when I had questions. I had the blueberry sorbet (not on the gluten free menu, but naturally gluten free) and it was tasty. I didn't have any adverse reactions.
They do a nice job with a good number of options and nice touches like GF bread to substitute for the baguette on the cheese plate. There is no substitute for the popovers, which are a signature item but there may not be much to be done about that.
The staff lacks training - our waitress last night was clueless about the allergy and what was safe to order. There is only one entree on the menu that is celiac friendly - the chicken. It is very good, just more options would be nice. All the chowders and stews were also GF. There is also the option of a salad (remind them no croutons). Avoid the lunchtime crowds and come for dinner. There are much better places to eat (for those with celiac) but it is part of the Acadia experience eating here. Note: I rated it celiac friendly because the chefs handle the prep well, and I've never gotten sick here. However, be very clear with the servers about your allergy needs.
