This is a local pub restaurant. The kids enjoy playing pool and using arcade/video games. Excellent hamburgers and other pub food. Enjoyable place, plan ahead because it can get busy.

Each of us had bison burgers and hot wings. The wings are not actually hot, but tasty anyway. Burger buns were like a real baked good, not a cheap roll, decent sized Bison burger. As to the fries, not so much, they were the frozen pre-cooked and then re-fried type, not as fan of these. Felt bad for the server,... More

A friendly tavern with a full menu. Food is prepared fresh and there's always a daily special. A favorite of locals for good reason.

We didn't know where to go for dinner last Friday night and happened to find this restaurant. What a great find! The food was fantastic. I had the crabcakes. The waitress was very attentive without interrupting which is something I really appreciate. We had the table in the bar area that is overlooking the lake. I would say great atmosphere!... More

We went for take-out dinner - fish and chips were good and fairly priced. Haddock dinner not so much - the sides out-portioned the fish, everythng was drowned in a dill sauce and way overpriced for what you got. We paid before our meals arrived and the hostess assumed she was keeping the $6 difference between the bill and the... More

The food tasted good, but our waitress wasn't very friendly. Several seats had food on them and needed to be cleaned again. The menu was pretty limited, not much more than salads, wraps and sandwiches.

My daughter and I stopped by here on our way to Squam Lake Science Center with our Breathe NH Fun Pass. I enjoyed a turkey club and a side salad. The salad was fresh farm lettuce and juicy tomatoes. The turkey club was full and delicious. There was only one waitress for the whole restaurant, but she was able to... More

My wife and I decided to go out to dinner and see the Women's World Cup. The Mug advertised that they were showing it on tv. Great idea but they weren't prepared for the crowd. Definitely understaffed and unprepared. We have visited The Mug before and it's o.k. for the basic burger etc and adds a lot of local flavor.... More

We've visited the same area in Holderness for 7 years but never went to the Mug, even though it's right on the way to Meredith. But, looking for a place to take the kids and friends for dinner that was easy and nearby, we decided to give it a try. The TripAdvisor reviews gave me a little pause, but we... More
