Interesting

It was a nice and quirky restaurant. Once you are seated you can go to the front and get biscuits and some toppings before your food arrive. The food was nice and all in all an enjoyable dinner.

My wife booked one of their rooms for my 30th Birthday and we had over 30 guests with us. The staff was very friendly and worked with us on the menu options due to some picky eaters. The food as usual was amazing as this is not our first time going to the restaurant. They have a fantastic bar setup... More

We stopped in for lunch after seeing excellent on line ratings and we were in Merrimack for the afternoon for shopping. Walking in it is a wonderful old New England home setting, and the have all you can eat crackers & different cheese dips which were offered after we were seated! The Lobster wraps are like Crab Rangoon, and a... More

Good food and lots of nice touches like the cheese and crackers and the white chocolate bits with the bill. The old house setting is very nice and my server was great. But the house wine bottle for $10 on Wednesday really sealed the day - really liked their Merlot! (From Rutherford in California). Very pleased!

There's a sign at the entrance giving some 20 words saying how helpful they will be or nice or whatever which to me is patronizing garbage which invariably turns out to be inaccurate . If however the staff are wonderful and blah de blah then it's still a stupid and patronizing sign which should be returned to the gates of... More

A cozy, homey, inviting restaurant. Had a late lunch upstairs in the bar, complete with free cheese and cracker appetizer. Burger was tasty and the sweet potato fries were very good! Chicken nachos were good, but I would probably try something different next time. Wish they had an awesome fireplace, like at their Common Man location in Lincoln, but it... More

Stopped in here on our way to the Squam Lake region for a winter getaway. It was a nice surprise. I was not expecting much, given that these restaurants are a chain of sorts. We were greeted and seated immediately in the bar area. We ordered burgers, which tasted like summer - yes, they were that good. The only disappointment... More

This restaurant is a great place to eat with delicious food and friendly service. The prices are a little high but we went for brunch on a Sunday and really enjoyed it. We had eaten there before and they have "rooms" with the tables inside. For brunch we were in a large area previously a "barn". Very nice and rustic.... More

Very good food. Staff are wonderful. Feels like home. A nice place to go with friends. The upstairs bar is more casual and has a separate bar menu. Something for everyone!
