The motel exterior didn't prepare us for the generally excellent food at this small restaurant located on 7a about a mile north of Manchester center. We had tickets for the Dorset Playhouse, about 15 minutes away and came at 6 pm. It's too bad we didn't check out their website as they have a 2 for 1 special from 5... More

Our party ate breakfast here after spending the night at the attached motel. The food was very tasty--standard breakfast fare. The pancakes were very good and the half stack is more than plenty.

This family-owned Motel and Restaurant does just right. Great quality, but still not overly expensive. The appetizers (chorizo and "pork wings") were really good, and the rib-eye was delicious. Cooked to order and great meat quality. The fillet trio was good as well, yet could not compete with the ribeye. Along with a special bottle of red, we spent a... More

My husband and I had dinner here when we were on a New England trip and staying in Manchester. I had one of the best salads ever! It couldn't have been fresher or more delicious. I had the Beef Medallions, and my husband had the Pork Chop with pear topping, both with mashed potatoes, all delicious. The view is beautiful,... More

Stopped in for a late breakfast and had the whole place to ourselves. The dinning room has a lovely view of Equinox Mountain. The dining area was clean, well lit, spacious, had great music playing and great acoustics for easy conversation. The owner was so friendly and very helpful too. She took quite a lot of time, balancing guests and... More

There were four in our party who were visiting the Manchester area so I made a reservation at Nippers because of the excellent ratings on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed since the food and service were both terrific. For starters two in our party enjoyed Caesar salads and I devoured my House salad which was comprised of very tasty... More
