In the middle of no where

Quaint restaurant seriously in the middle of no where in Methuen. Years ago before the current owners place had a back woods special feel to it with heart shaped candy with your check, our kids use to love it. Today its different, more of a modern middle of the road classsy joint for couples. Tents... read more

Hostess was rude. One meal in our party of four was terrible. When it was mentioned to the server he said, "sorry about that". We will not go back

A nice place to go for a cozy dinner. Menu is good with nightly specials. Reservations recommended on weekends. Nice bar for pub food if you don't want to sit in the back at a table.

I only live about 12 miles from the Inn, but have never visited before tonight. It is like an old inn in the middle of the woods. I think they specialize in functions as well. There is a cozy bar to enjoy cocktails and the dining room had a large seating area with various sized tables. Our waitress was attentive... More

8 of us went there for dinner recently - for their 2 for $22 specials- which are a good deal - of average food. The reservation was for 6 people, but as we approached the Inn two other friends showed up to join us. Upon arrival, I informed the hostess (not sure if she is the owner also) that we... More

We went to a luncheon buffet with a family group and enjoyed every moment of the affair. The tavern was staffed by the owner and the buffet food and service were excellent. We highly recommend the private dining option and will plan on returning for a normal meal. The out-of-the-way location is an attraction all by itself, and many of... More

This Sweetheart Inn has been in Methuen, MA for over 200 years, yet its a hidden treasure. Its off the beaten path, you'd never know it was there unless you were specifically looking for it. If you came across it by accident, you found something to write home about. Its excellent. Wide range of choices from a simple burger to... More

I was here many years ago and never had the opportunity to return but glad I finally did. The reviews are mixed on this place but I thought it was a nice experience with great food. The building is old, built in the 1600s but very well kept and clean. The bar is very small and very busy so we... More

The Sweetheart Inn is run by Mike and LeeAnn Condon--a husband and wife team. It's been around a very long time. It is a historical building in Methuen, Massachusetts. Set up in a rural neighborhood, it would be best if your first visit was made during daylight hours to be sure that you don't miss it. Because of the good... More
