The food, service, and staff were amazing. 6 stars if aloud. A very homey feel and vibe. Can’t wait to go back.

Tim-Bir Alley is certainly the best restaurant in Littleton, and probably the best north of the notches. That said, it is not to-die-for nice. Service is friendly but far from seamless (providing cutlery was a challange on our visits) and the servers have trouble recalling...the two or three specials they have. If you ask for anything, the response is always ‘No Problem’. Why would it be a problem? (Pet peeve) That said, the food is very good. We preferred the starters and desserts to the main courses. The cheese selection was laudable, which for some reason is offered both as a starter and as a dessert. Good soups. Portions are decent. Wine list is limited, with the most expensive bottle just over $40 and the server rests the bottle neck on the glass when pouring. (Note to owner: Servers need more training.) The fettuccine bolognese was more tepid than hot. What else can you get in Littleton? Versions of the burger & fries place, take-out Thai or Chinese, or pizza.More

Phenomenal find in Littleton. Last week I ate in a nationally renowned restaurant in Boston- for less than 1/3 the price we had a far more enjoyable meal . We started off with a salad to die for: duck confit, duck cracklings, cherries - finest...salad I can recall eating. For a main course my wife had spinach and mushroom ravioli, while I had a veal, pork and lamb Bolognese - both were marvelous and we topped it off with a white chocolate Creme- Broule. To put the capper on- the service was really great - the owner and chef’s wife Nancy made dining there a real pleasure. This was a meal that would have set one back several hundred on Beacon Street- in Littleton with wine: $113! Make the drive to Littleton NH , enjoy the wonders of nature and then enjoy the wonder that is Tim-Bir Alley!!!More

We had a great dinner, Special Salad, steak and Chops. All were very good the quality you find in Boston or New York. Service was excellent, and the Chef comes to your table to make sure everything is good. I would highly recommend this restaurant...if you’re in Littleton or anywhere in NH. Worth the drive.More

Dinner was beyond our expectations. Jeremy, our waiter was truly wonderful. Engaging conversation and knowledgeable with every course ordered. Relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. The Bolognese was amazing a long with the saffron noodlet. The ginger creme brulee was the perfect end to our evening. Highly...recommend this gem. Will most definitely be back.More

My husband and I stay at a B & B in nearby Bethlehem a couple of times a year and always make a point of dining at Timber Alley. The food has always been very good, but this time……. They blew it out of the...park. Outstanding! We talked about the meal for days. I had the scallop special. There were so many different layers of flavor and texture going on, my mouth didn’t know how to react. My husband had ravioli with beets. He said he didn’t know exactly what he was eating but he didn’t want it to end. The service was as good as the food. This little restaurant in Littleton, NH is big on flavor, big on creative dishes, and big on excellent service.More

The filet and the poached cod were incredible! Finished with delightful maple creme brûlée’s and French orange donuts with chocolate sauce....Delightfully imaginable and delicious menu.More

My family and I dined at the Tim-Bir Alley this evening and all of us were extremely impressed. The food was exceptional, the atmosphere was lovely, and the chef/owner and his wife pastry chef/co-owner/server were great! We live 3+ hours away but decided even before...desserts came that we would certainly be back.More

My review will not do any justice to the wonderful meal I had at Tim-Bur Alley in Littleton NH. The Chef ( who is one of the owners) really knows his food. The presentation was on cue the taste was phenomenal and the tiny staff...of his wife and one more made you feel like you were in their home. In all I felt like I was back in Montreal at a 5 Star French restaurant. Definitely recommend this restaurant and don’t forget to make a réservation. Small seating which is perfect and limited hours. I heard the bolonaises is to die for.More

We were recommended to this small restaurant in Littleton, which we were glad to visit - the town has lots of galleries and shops, and seemed lively. The chef here had been at Sugar Hill Inn where we were staying, and he is clearly doing...what he loves. My husband had cold cucumber soup and quail with a mushroom risotto cake; I had the chef's Caesar salad and the pork loin chop with polenta. Both dinners were excellent. Definitely worth a visit. Littleton seems like a fun town.More

Even the nicest restaurants in this area are casual. We are always more comfortable dressing up a bit more than jeans, but anything will do. Enjoy Tim-Bir Alley, it’s excellent!
