The restaurant at the 1785 Inn is located in a historic building overlooking famous mountain scenery (the 7th most photographed nature scene in the U.S.) A travel guide newsletter recently called it "One of the top 15 views in the world from a hotel or inn." All meals are cooked to order with the freshest possible ingredients (in spring/summer/fall the vegetables & herbs come from their own gardens or local farms). The service is friendly and the wine list is extensive (has received the "Award of Excellence" for 25 consecutive years from the Wine Spectator magazine). The desserts are all made at the Inn (including some that are flambed tableside). The critics have called it "an amazing value" and "the best place to stay or eat in North Conway." A relaxing luonge is also avilable for drinks, some lighter food, or one of their desserts.

We dined here while visiting North Conway. There is a very romantic ambience and the most beautiful view, especially at sunset. The food was good. The feel was continental. The service old school, thoughtful and professional. There aren't many places like this. It was a pleasurable evening.

The meal was okay, but not more than that. We stayed at the 1785, so we got to compare the dinner to our breakfasts and the dinner was not of the quality of the daily breakfasts.

My wife and I ate dinner at the 1785 inn during a weekend getaway to North Conway. This restaurant by far has the highest quality food and fine dining experience in the area. The service is truly white glove service. The best part of the entire meal is the caesar salad. The wait staff makes this dish table side from... More

We had a dinner there in early July. The food was very “beautiful” and delicious. The people are friendly. However, they made the food only when ordered, so it was very slow. If you are fine to stay long I would recommend this restaurant. If you just want to have a quick dinner (~ 1 hour), don’t even think of... More

How many ways can one say that one of the best restaurants in the Mt. Washington Valley, NH has closed for Good? Still a B&B, but they've stopped serving the public. Very Sad. Hopefully, they'll reconsider after a brief respite.

This used to be a fabulous, high-end restaurant, and we were ready to make reservations this year. Alas, they have closed and are only keeping the inn open with attendant breakfast for guests. Bummer!

I am shocked by how many good reviews this restaurant has received. The 2 star rating comprises the romantic atmosphere inside which provided us with a view of the white mountains from our dining table. It also includes the service which was attentive and friendly. The food however, was another story altogether and this in my view is what separates... More

This restaurant was one of my wife's and I favorite in the North Conway area. We had reservations to go back there for my 50th birthday dinner only to find out the owner shut the restaurant down. We both will miss this place for the fabulous cuisine they had and pray it will open back up again.

After 31 years of constant work and supervision, the owners needed a break for some personal time. They are still open for B&B lodging, so if you stay here, you can till get Becky's famous cooking & baking. More
