Went to Windham yesterday for the first time and had lunch at the Chicken Run. I don't do chicken but the menu was varied. I got a burger which came with fries (good), onion, lettuce, tomato--cooked to perfection and was good beef. Hubby was happy with his bratwurst and sauerkraut. Wasn't too crazy about the Halloween decor but that's me.... More

Had the dry rubbed chicken. They were out of the marinade that was disappointing. I expected a bit more. Give it a 6.5

8 ladies away for a 50th birthday celebration. Food and service was great. Entertainment was only so so and was very loud. Would definitely come back but request to not be seated in the entertainment area

My friends insisted we go here because they loved their previous meals. The fresh meats are off the charts! You can see them aging and marinating in the case. Good quality slabs. Meals prepared fresh and deliciously but without the hoopla. This place has a very busy and loud atmosphere; the line was out the door. We waited for our... More

This was a nice resturaunt with a country feel. We ate here twice and I had the combo, 1/2 a chicken and ribs while the wife had steak. The steak was expensive, well over twice the price we are used to paying but found similar prices on steak at other places in the area. The meals were good and we... More

My husband and I were recently married in Windham. The night before we had a family dinner at Chicken Run - and, wow, we're really glad we made this choice. Our party (somehow) grew from 17 to 28 and in an instant the manager Cathy (a gem!) rearranged and brought in new tables without any fuss and got the party... More

We had dinner and was not thrilled. Maybe it was because it was the middle of the week and we were one of two tables eating. I'll give it another try, maybe on a weekend, and hope for a better experience.

I see that this restaurant is always packed from the outside so we decided to give it a try. Maybe we just went on a bad day for them but the food and service need much improvement. The wait staff always forgot about us as they talked to their local friends and the food is nothing to write home about,... More

We tried this restaurant when it first opened and it was ok nothing special. We did not come back. We drive past almost every weekend and last Friday night we looked at trip advisor for a place in the Wyndham area and Chicken Run was number 2. We stopped and were pleasantly surprised. Live music in the bar seating inside... More

The deep fried chicken (different than your franchised fast food types) was very good and the snow crab legs were also quite good (seafood is offered on the weekends only). We dined in on one night and did the takeout (chicken and ribs) on another. This place can get very crowded (children can make their own s'mores at the outdoor... More
