Great for fried seafood.

Delicious fried seafood, but pricey. Can be long lines at busy times, but service was pretty fast. We found picnic tables out back where it was quiet and peaceful.

One of the better fisherman's platters in the lakes region, we think. Large scallops, shrimp, belly clams and a generous portion of fish. Lobster roll also served up simply and disappeared quickly. Order at the counter, listen for your order, and bring your tray back to your cafeteria style booth, or outside to the picnic tables. Nothing fancy here, just... More

Sawyers has been around for centuries (well, a bit of an exaggeration). Excellent ice cream with generous servings, fried and grilled meals for eat in or take out with reliable quality, very clean setting. This is one of those establishments that is a traditional stopping point for a quick and easy meal for summer people in the Lakes Region of... More

Great local diner with walk up ice cream window! So many ice cream flavors to choose from you cant go wrong! Reasonable prices with very generous servings, the banana split is the best value ever, you won't be disappointed !

It was across from our hotel and easy to walk to. Big variety of food and eat in or out. Reminded me of a 50's drive in without the car hops.

Ice cream was ok but not $5.00 ok! I could understand if it was a sundae with multiple toppings but this was a kiddie in a waffle cone with no toppings. I'm a local, if you feel like screwing the out of staters I guess that's ok but I won't be back! The ice cream wasn't that good, homemade or... More

My hubby goes here each year for a lobster roll. The best part is that it is not covered in a ton of junk! Good lobster with just a little mayo not drowned in it like most places. There was a large amount in the roll along with great fries. We sat outside with our dog and friends and enjoyed... More

Not bad for ice cream and some fried food but nothing special or that sets it apart. Good to bring the little ones for ice cream and to eat outside at the picnic tables.

Homemade Ice Cream and Lobster Rolls are what we were on a mission to find during our New Hampshire trip. We found both here! They also had some fun appetizers including corn nuggets served with maple syrup, mac & cheese bites and fried pickles. I tried my first Lobster Roll and it was overflowing with lobster meat. The roll was... More
