A friend and I stopped here for lunch early on a Sunday afternoon. It was not exceptionally busy.We were told to find a seat. So we did and waited. I finally got up and got menus for us. It seemed to take a long time for our sandwiches to be served. After finally getting our bill and waiting for someone... More

Service / Atmosphere: Their claim to be "NH's #1" is farcical. At best this is truly average food, coupled with extremely POOR service. Our server was hostile and in way too much of a hurry as to care about any aspect of our meal. In fact, she did not even enter one of our orders. This caused a long delay... More

Made the stop after church for lunch. The atmosphere is quaint with a pub feel and very clean. In our order, sandwiches, salads, soup. All great, all well prepped. The prices did not seem overly high to me 4.95 for hot dog and chips. 8.99 for a salad with grilled chicken. Our service however, was different. Our server was pleasant... More

It's been a family tradition that we begin our vacations to the lake at Poor People's Pub. Usually it's pizza, but I decided to try the lobster roll. It was amazing. Whole chunks, claws, it was so good. The staff is very friendly, even when they are busy.

We went on a recommendation of a local as we were on vacation. The atmosphere was pub like and clean. The service was excellent. However, our complaint - very expensive with extremely small portions. It appeared the food was already cooked as well because we were in and out within half an hour for a dinner service. We ordered buffalo... More

We stopped for dinner and the atmosphere was good with much to look at and give it a good feel. The food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. The wait staff was good but not very attentive. They used paper cups and I would have preferred plastic or glass.

Good old fashion pub. They treat you like family. Their traditional Pub Grub is delicious.If you are a lobster roll lover this is the place to stop. Voted Best Lobster Roll in New Hampshire. They use fresh lobster right from the ocean and only the claw and nuckle meat cooked to perfection. The roll is packed full and served with... More
