Great old hotel, not so great restaurant

Food is good but wait staff is inconsistent. The menu has items listed that were not available. Pizza was good. Just don't plan on a quick bite to eat.

We stopped here because the other restaurants were closed (it was Sunday evening.) The food is TERRIBLE, the prices are ridiculous, and the bathroom is FILTHY. If I had seen the bathroom first, we would never had eaten there, no matter what! They charge $15 for a 'buffalo burger.' It was a tiny, thin piece of meat on a stale... More

We came here hoping the recent awful reviews were not true. Unfortunately they were spot on. If I had seen the bathrooms before sitting down, we wouldn't have stayed. But we did, and even if the food were enough to bring us back (which it wasn't), the surly employees (one in particular) guaranteed we would not return. How hard is... More

This was one of the worst dining experiences our family has ever had. It's really too bad because my husband and I both worked here under a previous owner. The building is beautiful (and haunted!) But the food was terrible, overpriced, and our server was like a box of rocks. We will not return again. Saw three groups of people... More

New name of restaurant "Middlefork". Restaurant is located in an 1800`s hotel. Entering we noticed a sign on lavatories "out of service". The waitress did not acknowledge us, after awhile we sat ourselves. When she came to our table she told us an event happened over the weekend and many people came in to use the facilities, thus the sign.... More

We stopped with two friends who have been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years, and they described this as the worst experience they’d ever had. The service was so terrible and the manager (the owner’s daughter) is clearly not suited for this job! It was 1:45pm and we wanted a pizza. The menu indicated pizza is available from... More

We were passing through on a Sunday and ended up here because other places were closed. The food was over priced and over cooked. The service was bad and the restroom was very unclean and smelled like urine.

The hotel and Restaurant brings back the old days. Squeaky floors and all. The rooms are old but updated very nicely. The restaurant is a lit5tle bit expensive but nice.

We booked a Saturday night at Fairplay Hotel for Mother's Day get away and had a wonderful stay there. We were so glad to hear they reopened under new ownership. The hotel is old (built 1873), has lots of character and history! They are dog friendly with no extra fees for furry children! Just the kind of places we love!... More

Great place to relax and get outta the line of apres ski traffic on hwy 9. Cozy victorian atmosphere with wonderful homemade hot chocolate that paired perfectly with my Frangelico. I love the fact that the new owners have kept the original bar and has that old time feel. The restaurant has a romantic ambiance and loved the touch of... More
