“Average food, GREAT service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Went here with a group of friends (we're from Boston) after a day of hiking in the White Mountains. The staff was incredibly warm, friendly, and inviting, and was by far the best part of our trip here. The meals were just average, very basic, although the starter salad was very fresh looking and tasting. The decor was rustic NH, which was great. The beer selection was vast. Our server was extremely attentive and excellent. The food needs a bit of improvement for my taste.

“Good Local”

Good food, nice staff and reasonable prices. basic "American" menu, done well. Crowed early, but quickly cleared out. By 8:30, we were almost the last to leave.

“OK. Good beers on tap.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Ordered tacos on Mexican night (Wednesdays). Pretty much the supermarket variety. Service was spotty. Probably can do better elsewhere for food. Probably great for folks who mainly want to drink.

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Good food, service, and price. Nice bar and separate restaurant. Give it a try for a nice mid level meal at a solid price. Good for children too.
