At under $5 a pitcher, the beer was an exceptional value, even at 'poor people's prices'.

I have eaten here many times over the years and always had a great experience. The lobster was literally the best I've ever had (and I've had many!)

We stopped here after seeing their billboard on Route 16, when returning to Boston from the White Mountains. It's only about 5 minutes from the main road. We ordered the HOT lobster roll, BLT and Tuna Sub. All were good, but wow, the lobster roll was great. It's not inexpensive (about $17) - but look at the all the lobster... More

Have been to this pub for decades- love their roast beef and BBQ sandwich. Simple, straightforward food for very reasonable prices. A favorite of locals- a place you should go if you camp on the lake during the summer just to say you've hit the local spot, and you should buy a tee shirt while you're there- they are so... More

Went last night specifically to have the lobster roll to see if it lived up to the title of "#1 in NH" two years in a row. It does. This lobster roll is made with a ton of lobster meat and very little mayo. So little, I wasn't even sure there was any in there! Just enough to hold the... More

Simple food and simple dining in a casual environment. Had the meatloaf special which was delicious. Beer and wine only

They have great "homestyle"daily specials, their subs are great and filling, pizza good (just be aware they are a little small, great crust), good burgers. Can't beat the price of a pitcher of PBR! I don't know why they only have lobster rolls in the summer - lobster is a cold weather/water crustacean and the prices are great right now.... More
