We had their special sandwich, a turkey & cheese panini with thousand Island dressing they call "The Rachel" with the very best lattes. We go here often and love it!

For beer, bar food/appetizers, okay. Any main entree, even a burger is bad here. Used to be such a stellar establishment years ago. In the 90's this was the place to go for fine dining. Today it's another story. The place is physically falling a part and you can smell the mildew throughout the restaurant. Floor is breaking, tables and... More

Less than a mile off of I-93 at Exit 28, you will find this roadside tavern. We visited for lunch one weekday afternoon. There we found Heather single-handedly doing it all: hostessing, serving, bussing and bar tending and doing it quite well. Only the bar area was open for seating. I ordered the Chicken Caesar Wrap and my husband had... More

Our dinner here had its ups & downs. It wasn't crowded, but we had a long wait for our food. My fish wasn't bad, but my husband's steak tips were rather skimpy for the price. Not a lot of competition in the area.

I came here a few weeks ago, and I would have written something earlier but I became rather busy. After a long day of exploring the white mountain area, my family and I decided that we would try this tavern. When we arrived, my daughter ran into the restaurant and asked for a table for 4. Our server was very... More

Stopped in for dinner because it was close. Charming place with great food and an awesome wait staff! Waitress was very attentive, bartender brought drinks while waitress was tied up! Portions were large, food was reasonably priced and awesome

Waitress said would fix; came back and told us just a few drafts were $2. A good thing the crab... More
