Tough Competition for Restaurants on the Milford Oval

As any local knows, there are several restaurants on the perimeter of what is known s the "Milford Oval". They are not all created equally. One has a well-known local name (The Red Arrow) but in our opinion, is far over-rated and over-priced. We will not return there and do not recommend it... read more

This place is great. Right on the oval, friendly staff, great food, and a bar! Will definitely come back, especially for the French toast!

First time going here for breakfast, portions were large and well thought out. A different kind of meal from the usual bacon and eggs...I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, and I let the staff know. they are a bit over priced on the beverages, but the meals are spot on...

While the decor is distinctly basic, the food here is excellent and generous. If you are a locavore who likes organic and natural food menus, creatively presented by very pleasant people, this is your place. We've been there twice now and will definitely go back.

There are a number of choices on the menu, some appear to have been well thought out for flavor and texture profiles, others seem to have been the result of an experience (including mind altering substances) where the staff decided to throw together off the wall bizarre combinations. I recently tried one of the burgers specialties, ordered medium rare, it... More

We arrived with a party of 9 and, yes, we needed to wait a while, but once we were seated we really enjoyed the great food, fast service and the prices were very fair. Even as a large group on a holiday weekend (Mom's Day) we didn't feel rushed and the service was excellent. I highly recommend. Food is organic... More

When we walked into this restaurant for breakfast I felt very closed in and wanted to leave, but we stayed. We sat at the counter and were ignored for a good 8-10 min. We finally signaled at a waitress, too much engrossed in bantering with her co-workers to notice us. She screwed up the order, but we eventually got what... More

Be prepared to be dazzled by the vast organic, fresh, local choices at The Riverhouse. Delicious coffee, local farm eggs, breads, fresh fruit--all that you would want for a substantial, delicious meal. If you like corned beef hash and think it will be like you'd get in ordinary diners, think again. The corned beef hash was, by far, the best... More

My wife and I had a great breakfast here this morning. Pancakes are some of the best in southern NH. Local smokey bacon was very good. They serve A&E coffee in a French press as well which my wife appreciated.
