My husband and I have been having breakfast here every year on vacation for over 20 years. My oldest son is taking his family for the first time this summer and he can't wait. The pancakes and real syrup can't be beat. A simple but excellent meal ! The owners and the staff could not be nicer. Tricia always comes... More

Great small-town type place with a trail to their door. Snowmobilers welcome here, which is great! Stopped by with four others for a late breakfast/early lunch while riding in the area. Server was thorough, food came out quick and was hot. Big old woodstove in the center of the room to help you warm up. Been here 5-6 times in... More

You know it has great food when the locals all go there. There were four of us and we all ordered a different type of breakfast so we could see what they were like. We were not disappointed with the homemade food, nor the reasonable prices.

We were on our way home from a ski trip and decided to try this place. The food was delicious. The service great and the ambiance genuine old NH. Just loved it. Can't wait to give it another try next time we're up in the area.

The food here was truly homeade & delicious. Pancakes were HUGE!! it was worth the carb coma. The manager was one of the friendliest & affable individuals I have ever met. She remembered us by our first names during the 30 min wait. She had to come looking for us & new exactly who we were in a crowd of... More

I'm shocked to see that there were ANY negative reviews of this outstanding place. We stopped in three times this past week (twice for gifts, once for breakfast). The staff at Waterwheel are great and the service is second to none. Tricia helped me twice, and even recommended that we go to Fuller's Sugarhouse for great maple gifts. The breakfast... More

We ate here because it was recommended by the motel we stayed at. Food was good priced high but hey my kids ate for once and I even bought several items in the gift shop. My kids also enjoyed playing Connect 4 before the food arrived which helped pass time.

My wife, myself, with my brother and his wife, sat in the parking lot waiting for The Water Wheel to open at 6:00am. Our car was packed for the return trip home to Pennsylvania. We had prepared our own breakfasts each of the previous six mornings at our cabin in Jefferson. We had intended to visit the Wheel earlier in... More

I had not been to this restaurant in quite some time, but, went out of my way to go back with our grandchildren, as I had remembered it being great when our children were little. WOW...what a disappointment. When we entered, there was standing room only, so, I said to my husband...see...it must still be good. Wrong...we were told that... More

waterwheelnh, Owner at The Waterwheel Restaurant, responded to this review

It amazes me how people can experience the same things and see it so differently. We have been here for 14 years, have waiting lines that aren't always convenient and we haven't "trapped" anyone. If you ever decide to give us another chance, please let us know you are unhappy with your food. More
