I recommend the steak tips. Arguably the best I ever had. Dessert was great had the peach and blackberry cobbler. You will not leave here hungry.

Great atmosphere and great food! Carve off a hunk of cheese and grab some crackers for your table at the bottom of the stairs. My wife said before ordering, "I'd order anything off this menu..."

Had dinner here, but a "lighter" meal. Soup was (Steak and Potato) OK. Had a good amount of steak in it, but broth was redolent of the flour used to thicken it and it arrived lukewarm. Portion size was more like a demitasse rather than a cup. Burger was ordered medium rare and came out medium well (and I'm being... More

You have probably heard about the cliche "first impressions make lasting impressions." As we entered the pub, we noticed that it was very dark. Upstairs, we noticed many windows. We were told there were no tables available and we would need to wait. Instead, we went down stairs and one in our party didn't like the "fire place" smell. We... More

We ate at Fosters primarily since we were staying at the inn and had a groupon dining credit. The food was good but as I said in the title not over the top in any way. We split the beet and Brussels sprouts salad and the fried calamari. Both were very good and portion size was certainly enough for two.... More

During our stay at the inn, we dined at Foster's Boiler Room twice. The first night, we popped in and sat at the bar. We had some apps and cocktails. The service was great and both the drinks & food were yummy. The next night, we sat in the dining area and had a lovely dinner.

Two and not a one, ONLY because the waitress and hostess were VERY friendly and courteous. Now the food; the food was HORRIBLE. I had the brisket mac & cheese, and I was expecting a BAKED topped dish, and/or some crumbs etc. It was more of a cheese sauce of course, but it was sparse and holy crap...AWFUL SALTY! I... More

On our way back from Franconia notch we decided to stop at the Common Man Inn and have a quick bite to eat at The Fosters. Since it was a little cold outside my wife and I decided to have a soup and a salad. The service was friendly and quick and our food was delicious. If you're looking for... More

We stopped her on whim one day as we were in the area looking for a new place to eat. We sat at the bar, there are many different places you can sit. High top tables, couches and coffee tables, and also regular dining room seats. There is also a wine cellar for special functions. This is connected to the... More

Had dinner at Foster's.... varied menu.. I am vegetarian and had a few choices. I picked the Falafel Sandwich - excellent. All other meals were good except for a minor problem with the Mac & Cheese, but it was rectified .... good staff. Would still return to this restaurant. We were treated to a free, delicious dessert.... We left a... More
