I recently hosted an end of the year ski party at Chicken Run and it was amazing! The staff were so helpful in planning this event for 50 people. They went out of their way to work with us to make sure that the meal was just what we wanted. It's such a fun place for families with kids to... More

This is a great family friendly place close to Ski Windham. The food is great with generous portions and decent prices. The staff go out of the way to make your visit enjoyable and keep the kids busy with activities including creative toys.

Pure S#%T. This was the worst meal I had just about anywhere. If your looking for an enjoyable, well prepared meal do not come here. The wings are mediocre, the ribs are generic, but the prize goes to the meat loaf. It had to have been the lousiest meat loaf I encountered. Dry, tasteless, and was OLD !!! This place... More

Well. There's the Name. And then the NAME. Again. I asked a local about Chicken Run. He thought it was a good place to Bulk up on protein. As I enter Chicken Run, there is a hostess station but no hostess to be seen. After a few minutes, I wander into the dining room and seat myself. Wait staff are... More

Its a shame I live so far from Windham or I would come here all the time. The atmosphere is homey and super welcoming. If you go here you NEED to try the honey fried chicken. At first I was skeptical of combining the two ingredients, but I was proven wrong. Perfect honey-to-chicken ratio. Additionally, their bread pudding was one... More

I called looking for reservations for a group of 27 and was pleasantly surprised to talk to ALANA, a great employee who went way above and beyond to help me plan an outstanding night for my group. She suggested a private room, which was large yet cozy and warm with a fireplace. The food was delicious, fresh and abundant...the service... More

We're locals but never got around to checking this place out until the other night. After eating there We will definitely be going back. Went there on Saturday night. There was a big crowd in the area it being a ski weekend. Never thought to make a reservation and the place was packed. We were able to find a couple... More

We love ChickenRun. The food isn't fancy but it's good. The ribs are usually excellent, but weren't this weekend. This is the only time we would say that the food wasn't up to par. Hopefully it was just an off night. The bar is great and there is live music on weekends. In the nice weather there is a fire... More
