Island Pond has a problem with restaurants. It is a great tourist destination that had three restaurants last year, but are down to just one. With no competition, Pond's Edge can get by on having just passable food. Think Denny's, but with less variety. It's not bad, but far from tasty. It is also situated right next to the central...

Nice lunch on a quiet Saturday in February in Northern Vermont because there is no snow this year ( if there was snow there would have been a hundred snowmobiles ) Service was friendly like usual and food was very good. Pastrami quesadilla was delicious and always good burgers . Good choice of micro brews and nice view if pond... More

Haven't been to Ponds Edge for quite a while so we decided to go there for dinner tonight. Ruthie and Tiffany were very helpful and friendly. The beer was cold, the food was timely, warm and delicious. We will return again this winter!

Today we had lunch at the Pond's Edge Pub and Eatery in Island Pond, VT. It has a great location located on the main road on the north side of Island Pond. The atmosphere is nice, a typical small town restaurant, with lots of friendly service and plenty of locals. There is a good choice on the menu and the... More

Visited Island Pond for the first time in January on a snowmobile trip. The best part of The Ponds Edge Pub is that it was just steps from our hotel. The staff were friendly, could've been a little more attentive. Since I was only with my 13 year old son, I was not drinking any alcohol and neither me or... More

The staff and patrons at Pond's Edge were very friendly. We enjoyed our visit. The food was OK for Pub food. Neither of my buddies nor I found any of our entrees above average. Having said that, I would return because the staff and patrons were so friendly; and perhaps if I tried something else on the menu I might... More

We were on a foliage drive and made our way to the Northeast Kingdom and continued on to Island Pond. What a serene and beautiful spot. The Ponds Edge Pub is on the Pond's edge and although rustic we loved the beer selection, outdoor seating and they even had Lobster Roll on the menu. It was full of lobster meat,... More

We come to this area each summer and always spend at least one happy day in Island Pond, so we're familiar with Northeast Kingdom dining options (limited, but often good to great). The Yellow Deli (a great place to eat and to see) was closed, so we tried Pond's Edge. The atmosphere and service were friendly. Very mixed reviews on... More
