Had an excellent Salmon dish and mussels. My wife's pizza was good, and my parents enjoyed the chowder. Friendly service as well

….maybe an isolated incident, but our mushroom pizza came with so much clumped up flour on the bottom side that half the pizza was inedible. Showed the waitress. She offered to have another made but we passed. Definitely won’t be back.

Been many times before will never go again. Waited over an 1.5 hours for food and it never came. Ordered a sandwich and pizza...the waiter told us it was taking a while for pizza so we asked for tenders while we waited. After 1.5 hours,...we asked the waiter and he smirked about it not arriving. We then asked for our bill, which had all the food on it. We declined to pay and then the manager, Maggie, was brought over. She questioned our arrival time and I had to take out my phone to show her, they called me at 1:22pm for our reservation and it was now almost 3pm. Never an apology and was rude and condescending to us. I asked her to sit down and let her know she was being rude and that I would never speak to customers this way, I am in the industry and she continued with this attitude. All tables around us, that arrived after us, had gotten their food, which include people getting pizzas. This made us realize, after the smirk, he probably did not put out food in. He and the manager, should have owned up to this mistake. Never will go back.More

The worst experience ever. We waited 90 min for pizza a sandwich and tenders. The waiter said that pizza was going to take a bit. So we ordered tenders as he said that waa going to be quick. So about an hour and 15 min...later, I asked to take the tenders off. And asked about the pizza. Smirk and said our food would be out soon. We asked for our tab and of course food was on there. We said we aren't paying for food we didn't get. And then manager Maggie came over to question our time arriving. Completely rude to us. So my wife called her over to say she was condescending. She didn't care. We frequent often but never again. Such a bad experience. Stay away.More

Ordered Calamari, first time since pre-pandemic. Have had it THERE for six years before Covid-19. It was different, all processed, no varying shapes/tastes, all oval ring shaped, rubbery, horrible. Waitress never checked back so I walked towards kitchen to address the matter, was intercepted by...Alex who said it is the same as always. That is like saying whole bellied clams and clam strips are equal. And...he was RUDE. I will not return.More

We arrived in Wolfeboro and settled into our Airbnb and went out for a quick dinner. We saw the menu at Nolan's and looked like they had a good selection of food. We arrived and had to wait for table. It took about 30 minutes....We walked around a little and they texted when table was ready. We had a party of five and tables were spread out enough. We ordered the calamari, ahi Tuna and garlic bites. I ordered a meatball grinder for dinner and we got 2 pizza's. Overall the regular cheese pizza was good most other items average. the calamari were very large which were a bit chewy. They were big which makes it even worse chew. We were disappointed in the Ahi tuna. The tuna cam out on bed of broccoli and mushrooms and the broccoli was so over cooked it was falling apart. it just seemed like a bad combo. Tuna was fine. The meatball sandwich was also okay with the meatballs dense and way too much pepper. When you make something like meatballs the spices need to complement to meat not over power it. Overall it worked fine for dinner but next time I would stick to just the pizza.More

Must have been an employee who did not know how to cook pizza. Ours was cold, uncooked in parts. Toppings were thrown on and cold and some were not what we ordered. Horrible.

We just had lunch there today (3/25/21) and the muscles were outstanding! Wonderful sauce, big piece of garlic bread accompanied this dish to dip into that yummy sauce. yummy fish tacos too. Good service and nice atmosphere, soft cushions to sit on. Have also had...their eggplant parmesan in the past, that also was outstanding!! A favorite for me. Great pizzas too!More

This used to be our favorite place to go. Then Covid hit. We have been twice sitting outside this summer and both times we noted both the quality of the food and service has gone hill significantly. We have taken out twice this fall and...didn't see any improvement so gave up. It's too bad; this was a very nice and pleasant restaurant before the pandemic.More

Watching pizza station hygiene. Been to this restaurant many times, love the old staff! Understand the issues trying to run under these circumstances, but, I want to see people in the pizza area start washing there hands!! Have observed several employees from removing plastic bags...and bringing in wood from outside and then spinning dough. Sure the pizza goes into the oven but current staff needs to shape up. ThanksMore

Also a patron there, call the restaurant directly, but also know that Gary (the waiter) has a catering business as well.
