A gourmet's paradise

The imagination, presentation and flavours provided make this a must for diners. There are alternatives nearby but do not compare to the standard achieved here. Wonderful food.

We live locally but grew up in big cities. When we want a special fine dining experience this is the place we choose. If an expensive restaurant means huge portions and doggie bags then this isn't the place for you. This place is about delicious food prepared expertly and reasonable portion sizes. We've always enjoyed meals here and experienced something... More

We recently stayed at the Manor where this restaurant is located. This is the sort of place you would want to go for a quiet, relaxing, leisurely dinner. The dinning room is beautiful with a distinct antique feeling. The breads are homemade and delicious. We shared a salad (they are quite large) and the shrimp appetizer which was excellent. We...

we stayed at the hotel which was fantastic so we had high expectations for the restaurant. but the food was nothing special and not cheap. on the other hand ,the breakfast in the morning was great ,so that made up for it.

We arrived fairly early for dinner and were able to get a table right in front of the roaring fire. Enjoying a couple glasses of wine, we could have easily forgotten about dinner and just enjoyed the warmth of the hearth. Ultimately, we gave in to the temptations found on the menu. Right after ordering, the server brought out a... More

We ate here for my birthday celebration. The food is delicious and presented beautifully. The restaurant is high priced, but, for a special occasion it is very nice. The tornadoes of beef were cooked perfectly and came with potatoes and veggies. They brought me a decorated plate with chocolate covered strawberries and a birthday treat. This is in an old... More

The setting is unique in this part of the country: an elegant room, unique decor, lots of fine woods, wall coverings and beautiful place settings. Extensive menu with local beef, unusual and familiar fish and vegetarian options. Even gluten free bread is offered! Food was well prepared with innovative salads, tasty sirloin and excellent swordfish. Prices for food are higher... More

This restaurant is located within the Manor On Golden Pond, a hillside inn overlooking Squam Lake (where the movie of the same name was filmed). This was a first visit for a group of 5 couples who annually get together for the Labor Day weekend. The inn is affiliated with Small Luxury Hotels and Select Registry, so we had high... More

The food was top notch and the service relaxed yet unobtrusive. Made out stay at the Manor on Golden Pond well worth the long drive.
