I was staying at a nearby hotel, and this restaurant was highly recommended, We pulled in the parking lot, my first clue, this place was a dive, We went in to the establishment, We decided to go elsewhere, the place was horrible, the bartender was very obnoxious, and loud, she had a very foul mouth, after a drink, we decided...

Very tasty home cooked meals. Plenty of food. It's a bit of a drive for us, but definitely worth it. Their buffet is also excellent.

We were looking for a new place to dine and after visiting the Fryburg area we thought we's check out The Washington House. We made a great decision. I had the 12 oz prime rib dinner and my wife chose the buffet. Both very good and a fair price to boot. We enjoyed and we'll definitely return.

The House special comes with sliced prime rib, onions and mushrooms topped with cheese and mayo served with a side of au jus for dipping. Most sandwiches are served with a side of homemade soup that is also always very good. I have yet to find a sandwich to compare. The owners are working on remodeling and the building needs... More

They give you tons of good food. Their prime rib is the best I ever had. Its so flavorful. We drive 45 minutes out of our way just to eat there. We are always recommending people to eat there. It's awesome food.

The Washington House has been in Fryburg since, practically, the dawn of man. George Washington actually slept here. Google and read the history. The food is always fantastic! I was born and raised in Pennsylvania and always stop in here for at least one meal when I'm back up to visit. Great service and prices. I highly recommend this place... More

This restaurant is in a historic building, which I find charming. I eat here often and I've never had a bad meal. They've got great pizza, a fantastic steak salad, and the dinoburger is the largest (I make two meals out of it!) and best burger I've ever eaten anywhere. The meals come with a salad and dessert bar; the... More

I would not recommend this place to anyone. I would even let my dog eat the food here. The kitchen is rodent infested, and the food is mold covered but still cooked up and served to customers. The owners are rude and determined nothing needs to be changed. He pays off the health inspector, and changes nothing. The meat is... More
