I've been here a couple of times fur breakfast and lunch. It's quiet, comfortable with great service. The food is really good. This place is easy to overlook as its just North of the center but it's worth the stop.

Food and service is just plain good. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can always count on a good quality meal without expensive frills.

Had a great dinner there when we stayed next door conveniently at their motel. Make a reservation, as it is small, but well worth it. Yummy. Nice fire pit outside to relax after dinner.

We loved our stay at The Stamford Motel and were so happy they had a restaurant onsite. We had drinks/apps one night, breakfast both mornings and dinner on our last night in VT. The food was excellent... so very tasty, a perfect combination of flavorings. The dining room was very comfortable and staff friendly and attentive. Chef Adam has really... More

We are thrilled you had a great time. Glad you enjoyed the free live music. It is a little better when you watch him outside under the crabapple tree. Hope to see you next year. More

We had breakfast and dinner here twice whilst staying at the Stamford. The food and service were both good. My wife really enjoyed the roasted red peppers. Nice draught beer. As we would have needed to drive to another restaurant, it was really useful to have a good option on site.

Everything from steaks and seafood to burgers. and fries. The quality of entrees was on par with other local restaurants. This place is somewhat outside the town of Manchester.

We checked into the Stamford Motel which we cannot fault. We had a really wonderful two-night stay, however the first night we went to Nippers. I accept that other reviewers really loved it, and I don't think I have written a bad review before, however, my apologies, but this is my first. My meal started off with promise, as my... More

It is unfortunate that you didn't have a great meal. We always serve the hot sauce cold. Unfortunately you didn't mention anything about the garlic bread until way after your meal. The sauce was prepared correctly, we can't please everyone. We sold 4 additional orders of ravioli that night and everyone else enjoyed it. Thanks for your suggestion. Safe travels. More

Chiose this restaurant on the reviews and the proximity to our lodgings. Wrong choice. The welcome was very good however they had a guitarist/ singer in the corner of a fairly small room of approx 30 seats, which was too loud on top of people talking. The service was quick in fact I think we were in and out within... More

I had a rib-eye steak that was well done on the outside and medium rare on the inside. Oh, it was really good. My wife had fried chicken which was really moist. She loved it. Plus, the woman running the restaurant, Karen, is just about the nicest person you will ever meet. And the other server, Ann, is just as... More
