We had dinner here while stsying in center harbor. The food was very good. Steak medallions were delicious, and by husband has the veal chop that he said was also very good. We made a reservation, we were seated on time , restaurant wasn’t that...crowded, Service was good, would definitely go againMore

We had lunch here with family members who had previously had great meals here. Our food was OK but they were disappointed and sorry they had recommended it. I had chicken parm, which was tasty. Others had the meat loaf, the Kobe burger, and the...short ribs. All the portions were extremely large. For a somewhat remote place, the wine list was great!More

Went out with another couple tonight and made early reservation at Canoe. The menu asks you to eat and leave in 90 minutes to allow them to serve more people. That’s fine. We ordered promptly...drinks, apps, entrees, desserts. 4meals..salmon was cold, other meals were warm...not hot. Mentioned it to the waitress who got the salmon re-heated. No accommodation offered. Mentioned it again to the manager when she asked. No offer at all..no drinks, no dessert, nada. Food was good but why even ask about the meal if you don’t care to make a problem right? Not cheap meal and won’t plan on going there again anytime soon.More

Nothing fancy here. Decent food, but not great. Our reservation was messed up, so we agreed to sit at the bar. The server/bartender, Beth, was lovely. Very efficient, friendly, and nice to chat with. Food was decent, large portions, but nothing to write home about....We stayed at the Center Harbor Inn, which was just down the road, so it was a convenient dinner, but overall, don't think we'd hurry back to Canoe.More

The food ( beef tenderloin, prime steak was the best steak we have ever had. Prices are mid to upper range but so worth it! We sat outside due to pandemic but were under a huge tent and very comfortable, practicing all the recommended safety...practices. Food was prompt, waitress was attentive and friendly. Wait for food was not long. Perfect quiet dinner. Would highly recommend this restaurant!!More

On a recent visit to New Hampshire our stay included a gift card for dinner at the Canoe restaurant. When we first arrived I noticed a sign that said we needed a reservation which we were not told by the hotel that we needed.I went...to the reception area and asked about having dinner. This is were we met Taylor. We were told the next reservation was at 8:30, It was only 6:30 So waiting 2 hours was not what we wanted to do. I inquired sitting at the bar and Taylor told us to sit on the bench outside and she would see what she could. Taylor came through, we sat at the bar where we met our servers Lilly and Beth . Food was AMAZING, I got filet medallions with asparagus and mashed potatoes, my husband got steak and 2 lobster tails ( he ate every bit). When Beth asked if we wanted desert we decline because we were too full, Beth informed me she made a killer espresso Martin , so I indulged! BEST espresso martini EVA ! Before we left Taylor gave us a sweet treat to take home , she went above and beyond to make our experience a great one . We will definitely revisit Canoe when we are in the area.More

Amazing food and looooved the mac and cheese with lobster. Our waitress Rebecca was fun. We were happy to get a reservation on a Saturday night. Parking was tough but they offered a shuttle to the restaurant which was nice. All waitstaff wore masks and...tables really spread out. Great experience.More

I was so surprised by the quality of food because this town is small and rather out of the way, but it was slammed at 5:30 and we sat at the bar. Bartender was lacking in social skills but she handled the crush of people...very efficiently. We had chicken wings, Kobe burger done to perfection, fried chicken, Mac/cheese. Definitely would return any time in the area.More

Nice menu selections with a good variety. Good consistent service. The food comes out timely and the proper temperature. Love the calamari. Their outside tree lights are beautiful and ensure you can’t miss the place.
