My husband and I were in Garnder for a friend's wedding. We arrived around lunch time, so I did what I normally do and checked yelp to see what was near by. There was not much around, and since we were on a time crunch to get ready for the wedding, I did not want to venture to far around the surrounding towns. From the hotel we drove into downtown, which looked like it had been hit pretty hard with the economic downturn, but we came across the Ale house which seemed to be the only thing open besides a malt shoppe and Dunkin Donuts.
We went in looking for a quick meal, and we got that PLUS a good meal. I ordered the lobster roll (a special) and my husband a pizza. The pizza was huge, so we took it back to the hotel with us, and the lobster roll had so much meat on it. We are from the NYC area, and recently I got a lobster roll about twice the price as this one with half the amount of meat. We also tried the draft beer, which was great.
If we found ourselves in the Gardner area we would be sure to go back!
