The food and service in both the restaurant and tavern were wonderful. Friendly, professional and accommodating staff, great appetizers, meals and desserts, live music in the tavern on Friday night made for a great weekend stay!

We were staying at the Dan'l Webster Inn, so we had lunch, dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Each meal was wonderful, with great serving staff. Everything we ordered was great with one small exception: the whiskey sour was not so great. We will be back!
