We were hungry enough for an early supper to stop in The Haven on the way home. It has an outdoor dining area, so if you have a dog you can eat your meal outside with your pet in tow. If you have kids who like to feed ducks, The Haven offers small cups of duck food for a quarter... More

Great place to bring the kids for dinner. Kids menu, games to keep little ones busy while waiting for their food, and ducks to feed. Lots of fried food options, great French fries and onion rings. Ice cram favors- lots to choose from as well as yogurt, and soft and hard ice cream. Specialty flavors change weekly as well. Staff... More

Cute little place with outdoor picnic tables and an indoor option. Also nice Duck Pond for the families with kids. I had a hot dog and was a little disappointing with the size...there was way more bun than dog. Maybe it's just me but a pencil thin dog just ruined it for me. However they have great french fries and... More

Nice place if you want to eat outside. Service was friendly and fast. Based on the size of the bill I expected LOTS of food Food was good, although not great. Most disappointing was the portion size. Very small for the price paid. There are so many other options in Epping with a much better value.

We look forward to our summer treat of their hand cut french fries every year! The ice cream and sandwiches are good too. Nice place to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather.

usually a weekly visit for cravings like seafood or burgers but the Ice cream is one of the best.. they buy a few baby ducks every year for the kids naming them contest.. and they swim in a small pond for children to watch them grow. :)

If you like to pay high prices for sub par food that is rationed to you by an unfriendly person, this is your kind of place! It's seasonal though so you can only get screwed during the spring and summer months.

Overpriced, very low-quality and certainly not fresh. Apparently their ice creams are good...I wasn't impressed with their other food so didn't want to risk it.
