I am giving this a 4 star because - you never actually know when they are going to be open! ALWAYS call ahead of time, because they open and close at the most random times. However, the food is EXCELLENT, the staff is always very good, and the drink (especially the sangria margs) are absolutely amazing! :) The place is... More

One of our first times at this restaurant yet I have little to no bad things to say about our experience! The place was great, right on the main street and a great location to watch the parade from. The service provided by Josh and Katelyn was phenomenal especially considering how busy it was, and the fact that it was... More

Stopped by for an early dinner and sat at the bar. The bar tender was attentive and served us drinks quickly. We ordered and enjoyed our food. I had the chicken fried steak with the spicy sauce with queso on top, and it was delicious. It was better than my boyfriend's enchilada's, but he still enjoyed those as well. Had... More

A Saturday night with a full dining room and bar.....Staffed by one courageous waitress with was playing hostess too, one miserable bartender and one super nice manager who was trying to keep it all together. People were coming in the door, standing forever and walking out. Geeez! My Crab and Avocado Quesadilla looked beautiful but was very average, as if... More

We spent the day skiing at Windham and popped in for dinner, based on the positive TA reviews. It is located right on Rte 23, about a half mile from the slopes. We were greeted by a roaring fire pit outside, and a crackling fireplace inside the restaurant. The decor was very nice. Stonework surrounding the fireplace and brown leather... More

Great value - food fresh and tasty. Cozy fireplace inside and outside too. One server who bustled to keep the tables happy - quick too!

Had an itch. for Mexican, not disappointed. Bar Maid / Waitress was friendly, fantastic server. The place filled up fast but she never missed a beat. Food was also great, fast service. Friendly group at the bar.

I was very skeptical because I couldn't find out much about this restaurant before hand...but it was attached to our friends Inn so we decided to give it a try. We went as a large group on a Saturday night in October. All of us are vegan and the waitress was VERY ACCOMMODATING with checking on ingredients and options. The... More

Rock'n Mexicana is a favorite with Windham guests and area residents alike. Creative cuisine with a zest of Mexico makes this dining experience fun and filling. It's our favorite north of the border watering hole for signature margaritas and a great selection of beer. Enjoy weekly specials, original cocktails, and a family friendly atmosphere with plenty of options for everyone.
