My husband and I spent the day on a road trip and ended it here at the Homestead. We were seated at a window facing a garden with lights in the trees. It was very sweet setting. I ordered sirloin tips and my husband ordered fried clams. Each entree came with two sides. We both ordered the garden salads and... More

We try to make a stop to the Homestead whenever we are in NH. We have always found the food good and the service is more than adequate. This year we stopped in on Wednesday evening and we seated in a room off to the side. It overlooked the garden, nothing special but at least a view. The room was... More

On a winery trip in the area, my wife and I stopped her for dinner. A nice, local restaurant with good food but just average service - probably because the waitresses seemed very young and inexperienced. We had the veal piccata and the prime rib - both were very good and well prepared. We attempted to order the creme brûlée... More

Been eating at The Homestead for years. My favorite is the steamed lobster but have had other menu items as well. My brother and I always share an appetizer of the escargot baked in garlic butter and cheese, served with garlic toast to dip in the butter! Service is good and attentive but not overbearing. The Homestead is a staple... More

The chicken marsala was very good but the special at the time, beef stroganof, was amazing. Desert was more than delicious, I believe it was a chocolate fudge mud pie, piled sky high, will eat here again when returning to the area.

Service was terrible. Waitress may have been new. Took 45 minutes to receive our meal. French Onion soup was burnt and they used brown bread (leftover?). Chicken Marsala had zero flavor. Sides were not delivered. Waitress asked how things were. We told her "not great" She explained it had been a tough night and she was not enjoying it.

This used to be our favorite restaurant; BUT it has gone soooo far down hill. Food served cold, 12 oz. prime rib looked like it was MAYBE 6 oz. Have returned 3 more times just to make sure it wasn't just a bad day...WRONG!!! French fries were served cold. Variety appetizer was AWLFUL. Tasted like they were ALL FREEZER BURNED... More

Went to this restaurant for my birthday and begged to go back for our anniversary. We were greeted enthusiastically and seated at a lovely corner table overlooking a garden adorned with twinkling lights. Felt quite elegant until the mussels in white wine arrived. Then we began dipping our rolls into the delicious sauce and tossing down mussels like scavengers! The... More
