I decided to stop in for dinner for the first time. It was my two children and myself. One of them is 6 and ate from the children's menu. I just saw the charge on my account $77.30!! That reminded me to stop in and...leave feedback. At that price you will not survive in your market. The prices of the meals were difficult enough to swallow before I was hit with a "living wage" tax which I'm not sure is even legal. When you charge your customers a premium for average or less than memorable food, you need to pay your staff, not me. Needless to say I won't be back. I can tell that the owner or management has no formal training. At least no restaurant training in the price bracket that you're trying to survive in. If I want the McDonalds experience, I'll go pay McDonalds prices. At McDonalds I'll get paper cups but they'll be clean and that's more important in my opinion.More

Great meal, delicious comfort food and craft beer. We loved that the food is locally sourced and the food was prepared really well.

We found this restaurant while staying nearby and google searching for restaurants. My husband announced to me that they had grass-fed burgers so that sparked my interest because I won't order meat from any restaurant generally unless it's grass-fed, so I usually get something fish...or vegetarian and even then, lots of restaurants don't have the quality to my liking. As soon as I viewed their menu online--I HAD TO GO! We showed up and were greeted almost immediately. You order your food first and then go and sit, The hostess offered to save us a table. I am not sure if they do this for everyone or because we had a baby with us. Either way, we greatly appreciated this as the place was rather busy, I cannot recall the last time I was in a restaurant where there were so many items to choose from that were grass-fed/pastured. I literally was in heaven. We really really enjoyed our meals too, EXCELLENT burgers. My husband got their steak and cheese. Our meals were so good--we went back the following day for take out lunch. I only wish this place was closer to home. We were away on an overnight trip and over 2 hours from home. I do want to make another trip there though. Thank you Hungry Diner for not only great food but excellent service.More

I found it to be pretty unique of a way to order and pay before getting our food but still a restaurant experience. Food and drinks were good, only thing was food took a little while to come. Service was friendly and atmosphere was fun,...also a nice outside area that I'm sure is great in the summer.More

I'm all about helping people, but the livable wage is a scam. I would rather you not mention you are charging extra to the customers-how about the employer chipping in more for healthcare if they are so concerned the employees need a livable wage? Food...is great but because of this, be prepared to pay a premium!More

We arrived at opening time and there was already a long line (on a Wednesday night) waiting to enter. We both ordered the Korean BBQ pork tacos, but took the bowl option. The pork was delicious with a very tasty sauce, kimchi was fresh and...mildly spicy, carrot salad with a touch of rice vinegar, and jasmine rice cooked to perfection. Long wine and draft beer list. We were given a number, took our drinks to an outside table to listen to the live music, and food soon arrived. Staff was courteous and upbeat. Now we understand the line. It isn't inexpensive, but well worth the price. We'll be back.More

We were recommended here by our Airbnb host after a very long day and looking for a nice meal. The Hungry Diner is clearly the place to go because it was very busy but no staff looked or acted stressed out. The food is all...locally grown or sourced. The portions were quite adequate and incredibly delicious. Hubby had The Chippy (fish and chips). The two pieces of fish were very large, it came with fries and a grilled lemon for taste. I had the Hungry Burger. I didn’t realize until I bit into it that it’s two pattie’s! Mine came with fries as well. There’s a nice selection of local beers and wines to pick from or a few non-alcoholic choices as well (the strawberry lemonade was very good).More

We stopped for lunch on our way to Hardwick, VT from CT. We love this place, just a short drive from I-91 over the river into NH. The local craft beer list is extensive. They also have wine and cocktails. The food is locally sourced...from local farms. We are glad we stumbled upon this place and will keep it in mind when we make this driveMore

I really like the hungry diner. They are incredibly nice and seem to genuinely care about the customer's experience. However, I was there for Mother's day dinner and I was sadly very disappointed. They were incredibly busy and still quite nice, however, the food was...not worth the expensive price at all. Two of us had the burger and we both noticed that the burger patty was quite small. We ended up with half a roll left where the burger did not cover the role size, and the role was not that big. For $17 we would have expected more burger in the burger. In addition, the burger was overcooked. We were also given fries that were all bits, none of them longer than a quarter-inch and smaller. Our other guest had the fish sandwich and felt it was good but also rather small given the $16 price. Hope and Olive in Greenfield MA have an amazing burger that is $15.50 and the value is truly excellent. The burger feels robust and worth it. The worst yet was a small twist for dessert which cost $4.50 not including tax and was so incredibly small that it was genuinely insulting. I have never seen a twist so thin. While we are happy to pay what they feel is fair however if you charge that much, the customer must walk away feeling it is worth the cost and also satiated. Giving fries that are only all bits is frustrating. The atmosphere is great, and they are very friendly, but sadly, for us that night the value was severely lacking.More

Great food and kind people! The prices are a little high but the food is locally sourced and delicious! Tips- make sure people have utensils to eat with and also please consider making homemade blue cheese dressing for your wings. We love chicken wings in...our family and ranch just doesn’t cut it (yours is tasty though! but more for a salad for us!) . We appreciate the effort that goes into your homemade food and the condiments/pickles you offer are awesome! Please just consider adding a good homemade blue cheese , too! :)More

We were directed here by our B&B hosts after a long day of driving, You place an order for food/drinks at the counter, pay, and the meal is delivered to your table, either a picnic bench outside or a casual table indoors. The food is...described as "farm-to-table" and t is a mix of comfort food, old favorites and a few more creative dishes. it's all terrific, as well as the extensive beer list. Most of the dishes are fried or include fried foods and taste great, though, maybe not meals you should be eating on a nightly basis. Definitely worth a dietary splurge.More

Have loved this place since we first learned of it, and have brought several family members over the last couple of years. You can’t beat the burgers and they’re very creative with their specials. Friendly service and a great beer selection, too. My only criticism...has to do with the fish tacos. They’re perfectly cooked and the serving is generous, but they need a flavor boost. I’ve tried them twice, thinking the first time was an aberration. Nope. Add something, please, to bring them up to par with the rest of the menu.More

The Hamburg was so greasy it soaked the bun, the burgers were fat not flat so hard to pick up and eat without wearing it, like meatballs. Beef was dripping with grease. The fries were okay, well done, crunchy like potato chips. The fries were...1-2" average in size. I tried this place but won't be back. They also charge a living fee for their employees so the owner can offer them insurance and other benefits. Never heard of that here in NH. I know in some Western States they charge an unemployment tax for those without a job.More
