While it might not be time quite yet to put on your shorts and sandals, yet another harbinger of warmer weather has arrived: the opening of Jordan’s Snack Bar in Ellsworth.

The iconic roadside eatery on Route 1 in Ellsworth will start serving up fried clams, onion rings, lobster and crab rolls, Gifford’s ice cream and the Big Jim burger at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 22. As the weather warms further, the outdoor seating and playground will open, though there’s also an arcade and pool tables, and a gazebo which will feature live bands on Wednesdays beginning in late May, alongside cruise-in night, featuring classic and antique cars.
