Tasteful Food, Pleasant Ambiance !

Living seasonally in the area we have dinner here once or twice a season. This time we had dinner with friends from the New York area. The first surprise was the variety of new menu items and the available specials at a reasonable price. We each ordered different appetizers and entrees. The clam... read more

I ate here a year ago and really enjoyed it but went back for lunch and was highly disappointed. Everything was bland and lifeless, my garnish for my lunch dish was a pile of undressed spinach, the dressing on the salad was tasteless. Very unimpressed.

The canoe Club is located in the heart of Hanover, NH and Dartmouth College. When you walk in you would think it is as old as the school itself but it is actually only 5 or 6 years old. With all the acoutrement hanging on the walls dealing with canoeing and rowing it is quite an interesting place. we stopped... More

We had a wonderful graduation dinner here in June 2015. The reservation (made well in advance) was handled very professionally for a big group sitting. Our waiter was great and the meal was delicious! The whole event was a terrific compliment to a terrific weekend (lifetime) event. Thanks for being part of our memories.

We stopped in for happy hour one afternoon. I think we were the only happy ones in the place. Bartender was cordial but "tired"...his own confession to another waitstaff. I thought I might want something to nibble but the menus were taken away as soon as the drinks were ordered. We finally asked if there was anything like a trail... More

I wanted to like this place. Canoe Club, on the main street in the center of Hanover, is conveniently situated. We were met by a congenial host who took us to (a previously requested) quiet table. The server was competent and pleasant. Then there's the food. Awful. My pork schnitzel was just a notch above airline quality as were the... More

I've enjoyed Canoe Club for many years and their lunch menu is usually one I enjoy. We went for dinner this night - I had a salmon cake that was more like ground/mealy salmon compressed into a cake with little to no seasoning. My husband had the ahi tuna with a wasabi crust, but he also reported that it lacked... More

I have passed by the Canoe Club many times but always ate at other Hanover restaurants. My wife was having a business lunch elsewhere, I was on my own for lunch and went down the street looking at the menus in the windows. Almost every restaurant had the usual sandwiches, burgers and wraps. I wanted something without carbs, healthy but... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch with my son. Love the ambiance and staff were nice enough. We both had the BLT, quite bland, the sunflower bread was not what I'd hope for, dry and lacking flavor. Probably better place for a drink.

We had the best dinner there ever. The service was good, but the food was presented so beautifuily but the main thing is that it was incredibly delicious.
