Stopped here for dinner one night. Food was good and portions were large. It was very crowded on the evening we dined here, so service was a bit slow in bringing meals out. Waiter was very apologetic.

I've been here a few times over the years. The good: The food is excellent. The bad: service is painfully slow. 30+ plus minute wait times for a meal is unacceptable. And ordering a beer and waiting for it took forever too. By the time the waitress brought it over it was warm. Strange place. It's always crowded for some... More

While staying in North Conway we found this place for drinks at the bar and had dinner here also. There are not many places with entertainment on Tuesday but this lounge has a "Hoot" night where locals come in and play together guitar, drums and vocals---wow! What a find! Twin lobsters and fries were $16.99 and a soup sampler was... More

My husband and I have eaten at the Wildcat Tavern 2-3 times now and I don't think we will go again. It's ok in a pinch but the food is typical pub food and nothing to write home about. Hard benches throughout the pub, not a soft inviting chair to be found. The view is nice with all the windows... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Wildcat Inn numerous times. This year, we decided to stay at a different place, but we knew that we still had to have a meal at the Inn. We went to the "2 dinners for $24.50" on Wednesday, March 19th. I had called the week before to make a reservation for 7pm,... More

Years ago this place used to have some of the best high quality food in the area. We have been going for over fifteen years. There were wonderful buffets and brunches that are no more. The only special is the 2 for 24.50 now. For several years there were great choices on that menu from prime rib, filet, lamb, sumptuous... More

It's a tavern and a restaurant, decorated with a cozy New Hampshire ski inn style. Big bar with generous drink portions. We came for the special, 2 for $24.95 dinner. NiCe choices. Got salads and the French onion soup, delicious and hearty soup. Hung out by the fire and played cribbage with another friendly couple that we friended. Noticed that... More

We had dinner @ the Wildcat with a large party (10) last Saturday evening and just wanted to let visitors to the Jackson/Bartlett area that the Wildcat is a great choice for dinner! Food was well prepared all round and everyone was pleased. With a large group,including kids, we had a wide variety of entrees. Nicole was our server and... More
