I ordered the lasagna, which the menu boasted was homemade. I was excited for this hearty dish after a long hot day on the mountain. Much to my disappointment, the middle of my lasagna was still frozen upon arrival. When I brought this to the attention of my server, she asked if I wanted her to heat it up...... NO... More

We had dinner here on a Friday night. The food was great, wait staff was very pleasant. There was no wait, which was great. The prices are what you would expect from a steak house and a tourist area.

Good dinner but a little pricey. $34 for filet with lobster and bernaise sauce. Slightly overlooked meat and ice cold lobster. But all that said I would still return. Nice atmosphere, very friendly staff and comfortable seating.

We enjoyed the food, the waitstaff although very busy during peak hours, is very pleasant and engaging. The prices are to be expected for a tourist area.

Nona was our waitress. She was excellent, remembered everything and could not have been nicer or more attentive. My husband and I stopped in for lunch. He ordered ribs and chicken which he loved. I had the soup & 1/2 sandwich combo with fries. All our food was delicious. We will be returning during our visit to N. Conway, NH.... More

The waiter was great! However, it took over an hour to get the food. A very small menu and the pasta in the Scallops Nantucket was a little overdone. Reasonably priced bill, which included 3 beers, was $70 for two people.

Visited this place off & on for almost 20 years now. Have had excellent service to horrible service but mostly good. Food is always good, price is not out of the ordinary for the area. Will visit again.

We had Bruschetta for an appetizer which was absolutely delicious! All of us order burgers which came out perfect. Our waitress Maria H was outstanding.

Good selection off the menu as well as specials. The lobster was broiled and arrived steaming hot, which was a little tricky to handle, but it was sweet and tasty. The centre cut steak was more medium than medium rare, but it was flavourful and tender. The service was excellent and even when the upstairs area filled everyone was attended... More
