We went on a Thursday night. A friend had told us about the Thursday night special which is $39 for two entrees-choice of menu and a bottle of wine. The restaurant is charming in that it is an old barn built on many levels with twinkling lights and a real rustic feel. We were seated in what I believe was... More

From the rustic interior, kind staff and excellent food we were all happy! Our 4 yr old "loved" his mac n cheese (there must be a secret ingredient!). My husband had the shrimp scampi pizza app and I went nuts over the blackberry bbq ribs. ..everything was perfect for us! We look forward to returning

This was our first time at this Pub. It was a Sunday night. There was entertainment which we enjoyed very much. Service and good were excellent. We will definitely be returning our next trip to the area.

I reviewed my sister's wedding under the Whitney Inn, but the reception was held at their adjoining Shovel Handle Pub. Beautiful, rustic pub with fantastic food and service. It's set up on multiple levels with lots of stairs, so make sure this is ok for you and your guests.

My wife and I had dinner there last weekend. What a great, New England pub! It is in an old barn with the exposed beams and planks. I had the chicken Quesadillas and my wife had the haddock sandwich. both were excellent. The prices were very reasonable. Our server was attentive and friendly. They had a local singer there who...

Good food and live music. The kids loved it. An old place with caracter and a home away from home for us. Nice people and perfect attention to our needs.

we have been here on a yearly basis for at least 5 years and have yet to be disappointed, we always make sure it is on our agenda, although I miss the scallops.

Fell in love with the Buffalo Chicken Dip. Food was fresh and well prepared. Service was good. Old barn location was very charming.

very different than a lot of places we have visited for dinner. You are eating in what looks like a barn decorated in twinkling lights, playing eclectic music. The food was delicious. I had a salad with cranberries, apples, goat cheese and candied walnuts. YUM!
