It's pretty dirty, but the worst part is the bad poutine. If you are going to serve poutine, it needs to be better than what they have. Good homemade potato chips, but we all left feeling a little unwell. It's a shame that Howard's restaurant is now closed

We stop here once in a while for lunch while riding. They always have great lunch specials. Last time I had lobster roll and it was simply delicious! !! Quaint diner...

We stopped by for lunch on a drive through New Hampshire and Vermont. This is a cool old-school place with typical diner food with a few surprises. I tried poutine for the first time (not bad!) and the kids enjoyed their meals. The staff was very friendly.

This is your typical family dinner, but this is the best family dinner that I've ever gone to. The portions are more than filling. The taste of family dinner food is supplemented by home made frech fries and potatoe chips. The service is polite, enthusiastic and delivered with a smile. This restaurant is friendly to travers just passing through.

We stopped here for breakfast because it was recommended by the owner of the motel we stayed at. We were very pleased. great food, great service and a very friendly waitress that talked to us like she's known us for years. We would definitely eat here again.

Food was good. Service was pleasant and on top of things. The prices were not bad either-pretty reasonable.

This is a friendly restaurant and bar with good home cooking. They have homemade potato chips and great pizza! The "swamp" is the locals nickname for the bar and periodically they have live entertainment. Pool tables are available.

The Wilderness always has hardy soups, salad bar, and a variety of specials and a reasonably priced menu. Portions are good size. Right in the heart of town!
