Best restaurant I've ever eaten at.

The first time I went there, which was several months ago, I thought it was the bee's knees and more. To this day I hold my opinion firmly. My first visit there, I was with the majority of my family (sister, father and mother.) Due to the reasonable prices and humongous proportions, we over-ordered... read more

Decided to stop in for breakfast on our way to Canada. Will never come here again. There was no running water, and yet they were still open and serving food. I went to the bathroom only to find a note stating that it was out of order and had to use the handicap one in the bar. I could not... More

Wait Staff very rude. One wait gentleman that waited on us for breakfast..we have not returned since. He gave us a very stale donut we knew that he had fresh ones and made sure my husband and I knew this.

We we're returning from a fishing trip up North and decided to stop for breakfast at the Wilderness with which we were not familiar. What a pleasant surprise. A great breakfast was served by a friendly, nice lady, who told us quite a bit about what was going on in the area since we had last been there. We enjoyed... More

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

Driving through Colebrook decided to stop for lunch. The sign outside advertised "Good Food" so we gave it a try. Our meals were clearly cooked to order and delicious. Service was a bit slow and the dining room could use an update. But the food was very reasonably priced and very good. The menu had something for everyone with items... More

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.

Nice place to stop but nothing special. Some interesting area specials. I don't think I would visit again...
