We spend considerable time in this area each summer at a family beach house. Many local restaurants open during tourist season only and are able to charge very hefty prices. THT is open year round, and with the food being very good and the prices fair, many locals frequent it as well as tourists. We brought guests there this week, and they opted to return for a second evening. I cannot count the number of times we've eaten here over the years but we have never once had a bad meal or bad service. Our experience has been the opposite, which is why we keep returning.
The building has seen better days for sure, so if you want a classier place with atmosphere I'd suggest you pay higher prices elsewhere or over in Hampton. I can ignore the dated decor in favor of excellent, reasonably priced food. There are several rooms adjoining each other, with one at the end that has a bar and TV. The menu offers everything, but seafood would be a specialty. They always have two homemade soups that go with the salad bar, but during the summer they are not available after 4pm. They apparently have found that folks don't want hot soup on hot summer evenings. The salad bar is not extensive, but there is enough of a selection for everyone. The rolls are baked fresh and hot. Our calamari to share was done to perfection! I had the baked seafood casserole, butternut squash and salad bar. The casserole had a chuck of haddock, several scallops, two shrimp and half a lobster tail. The second night I had baked stuffed haddock which came with a lobster stuffing, baked potato and salad bar. Both meals were delicious and plentiful. Others in our group had broiled swordfish, baked scallops, chicken parm, and fried clams. Most of us could not finish our meals and brought food home. The blackboard specials are worth checking out, but I have found that often the price is the same as what is listed on the menu, so I don't know why they are "special." We are usually too full for desert so I cannot comment on that. We had Chris as our waiter the first night, and asked for him our second night. He was excellent, but all servers have always been very good. It's hard to find a good, reasonably priced restaurant in a resort area, but THT has been our choice for many years.
