BAR PIZZA!

Go to the Bar side (back) and order a bar pizza. Also they have the coldest beers in town (maybe the state).

Been going here for years and recently reserved a group luncheon. The weather was snowy that day but the staff and service were excellent, the food was tasty with good portions and the price was right. This place never disappoints! Thanks again!

The food is fine but not special. The prices ae good. Service is efficient. We stop in when we don't want to go downtown or we want a reasonably priced meal. I like their fish and chips or chowder. Plenty of parking in front.

Friends from Stratham first took us to Dinnerhorn nine years ago, and it has become a MUST for every trip to the seacoast. The food is consistently good and the staff have always been great. On Sunday after our seven hour drive we were ready to relax over dinner. My partner had the fried seafood combo plate (with huge shrimp),... More

This place is packed every time I drive by and I hadn't been in years so I decided to give it another try. The servers and staff are very friendly and patient -- especially given the frenetic pace of the place. We tried the pizza which had more of a biscuit crust (I'm guessing it's their own homemade) and while... More

As you can imagine, it's disappointing to see that we only provided you with a 3-star experience. Above all, we want our guests to enjoy all aspects of their visit with us, and it's not often that we hear remarks like this about our food. I hope you'll give us another chance to impress. As you said, we quite often... More

Arriving there on a Sat night around 6 PM, we expected a wait, but it was only about 20 minutes...not bad at all. After we were seated, our waiter came right over, and took our drink order, then brought rolls and butter. A few minutes later, he took our order, and dinner arrived about 20 minutes later. The food was... More

We always stop here at least once!! The draft beer is always ice cold, service is great. Never had bad meal here. The lunch specials are terrific especially if you have a smaller appetite. You never feel rushed and all the locals go here.

We've been here many times and had a great experience. Today... not so much. Cold food is and slow service. I ordered a Greek salad with chicken and the salad came out sans grilled chicken. When it did come out, it was a cold, tasteless plate of rubber.

Wow -- I'm really sorry to hear that the service was slow and the food disappointing, Bonnie. I hate knowing that a once-happy customer had a bad experience. As you know, this is not the norm for us, and we're definitely going to use your feedback to see what went wrong and how we can fix it. We really hope... More
