My family spent one night in Hanover dropping children off for summer sports camps/academic programs at Dartmouth. I picked the Canoe Club based on the restaurant's website and Trip Advisor reviews.
I called the restaurant a few days in advance to make a reservation, and when we arrived our table was ready and we were seated immediately (even on a busy Saturday night!)
Our server was friendly and efficient. The menu gave lots of options without being overwhelming. Fairly standard soups, salads, appetizers to start and plenty of beef, chicken, pasta and fish choices as entrees. Everything was delicious.
My son (who is 22, and yes they checked his ID even with Mom and Dad there!) ordered their "trio of beer on a tray". You can select 3 different beers from their extensive beer list and they are served in 7 oz. glasses on a wooden tray. I must admit it was pretty cool!
The atmosphere is "upscale casual" and the restaurant has a lively buzz without being over crowded or noisy. It's definitely a fun spot with good food! and service!
