For such a rural state, Maine is loaded with some amazing restaurants.  There's a wide variety, too.  Maine has everything from old school diners, to high end restaurants, to Japanese steakhouses, to seafood places.

Given the number of seafood places that dot our coastline, it really should not be a big surprise that what many people consider to be the most underrated restaurant in the state serves up some amazing seafood.

Spoon University recently put together a list of the most underrated restaurant in every state.  For the State of Maine, they selected the Jordan Pond House.

Located deep inside Acadia National Park, the Jordan Pond House really is hidden in plain sight.  Find it just off Park Loop Road.

A simple restaurant serving some amazing stews, sandwiches, and popovers, the real magical part of the century old restaurant is the view.  It sits on a hill that overlooks Jordan Pond.  Views of the pond, along with the mountains in the background, make for some truly memorable views.

According to the restaurant's website, the establishment has been around for more than a century.  It was in 1893 that Nellie McIntire first started baking her popovers at a restaurant at that site.

Once you get done eating your seafood chowder, your sandwich, or your popovers, you can take a walk on the trails that work their way along the shores of Jordan Pond.

The Jordan Pond House is open from May through October.  Check out their menu and get more details now on their website.
