Food here was great! Our service was a little slow, but the waitress was very friendly. My aunt accidentally spilled her glass of wine and the waitress was nice enough to get her another at no charge! The food is excellent. I had french onion soup, and a chicken special which was topped with asparagas, lobster and hollandaise.

Can't say enough about this jewel in Gilford! Staff, food, clean and a good value. Tavern side is the best for our liking! Save the Dining Room for a special occasion though!!!! Same service!!!! Once you go there, you'll question all your other choices!

This is a very friendly and nice restaurant, which is tucked out of the way, but a must find if you are looking for good food and pleasant service.

Outstanding roasted boneless duck plus several fresh seafood specials always on the menu. Seared scallops with risotto- yummm! Very pleasant servers. Busy bar scene as well with good selection of wines and mixed drinks. Over5looking a marina area on Lake Winnipesaukee, near the Marine Patrol docks.
