Great food - service could've been better

We ate here over MLK weekend. Granted the restaurant is busy for a reason (very good food). However, the service could've been a bit better.

From the outside it does not look like much and the name really does not match the food served. If you are a steak person who enjoys meat the quality of Peter Lugers this place is it. The meat is all prime and aged to perfection all at a reasonable price. I eat here every time I'm in town and... More

Everyone at our B&B were raving about this place and we decided to try it out. A total disappointment. My husband had ribs and I had the roast chicken. Both did not carry any taste or any character. My grocers make better roast chicken. Had higher hopes!

This is one of the hardest places to get a table. It's super popular with families on the weekends, and for good reason. The food is good, atmosphere is fun, kids can make sticky wicks and hang them up, there's an ice cream bar, and make your own s'mores. If you're sans kids, the bar is large and usually has... More

We were visiting for a few days to hopefully ski but the weather was not cooperating. We stopped at the Chicken Run for dinner with a group of five. Mostly the meals were OK - cheese burger, meal loaf, Caesar salad, rotisserie chicken. The buffalo chicken wings were delicious but the fried chicken was dry and the breading was hard... More

This is a terrific place to get traditional after ski comfort food like burgers, chicken, meatloaf etc. Right at the base of Windham Mountain the staff can get pretty harried on a weekend night in season. Prices are reasonable and service is quick. Casual atmosphere is just right. Lots of families but a decent bar scene as well.

Good comfort food- fried chicken, meatloaf, etc. Always pleasant service and great butcher counter- get some beef cut to order and sausage to go- spicy if it is available.

Comfort is the word; comfort food, comfort atmosphere, comfort for all ages...The place gives you the best experience in town no matter if you are sitting alone at the bar, on a romantic date or bringing the entire family along. Great people, great prices, great place: how can you go wrong going there?

This place looks a little rustic from the outside. Don't let that keep you from checking out this excellent restaurant. Highlights for me are the aged steaks cooked to perfection, ribs that fall off the bone, dry rub chicken. Also, at lunch try the gumbo. In the summer there is live music outside on the weekends, a really family atmosphere.... More

My wife and I were traveling thru the area on vacation and dined here based on Trip Advisory ratings. We each ordered a steak ( ny strip & T bone) , they were grilled as requested and were delicious. The menu offers a large and varied selection to choose from and I would not hesitate to return to try other... More
