We read the reviews on this restaurant and thought it was worth visiting - what a mistake!! This was without doubt the worst meal we have had in the USA. My wife requested a steak sandwich without cheese - she received.a steak sandwich with cheese, which was in edible. My main course included French Fries - I received frozen fries. We complained to the waitress and the manageress approached us to apologise for the problems, but rather than resolving the problem she simply offered us a free sweet. We declined the offer as we were concerned that the sweet would be even worse than the main course. My suggestion to any potential customer is to find an alternative - any alternative would be an improvement!!!

Canoe Restaurant is one of my favorites in the Lakes Region.

Scott O. owns this and O's Steak and Seafood in Laconia. Both have a great menu selection, O's is a bit more formal but still casual enough for vacation wardrobes. Canoe is family friendly, plenty of tables, not noisy. Good view of the Lake at some tables.

Service is excellent, highly recommend the calamari and their signature dish, Lobster Mac and Cheese. Always have a great meal here.

Our dinners were served "just slightly warm" and portions were not large. Overall our experience was disappointing, but service was good.

This place is always crowded. The ahi tuna and lettuce wedge are my favorite, but wow - the prices are steep. Good tourist spot.

We revisited Canoe and were pleased . The changes to the menu are subtle yet effective. The standards remain-lobster mac and cheese, seafood with pasta , fresh cold water fish and steaks. The beef filet was tender and tasty, the cheesy potatoes cooked until crisp on top.Haddock was well prepared. The wine list at Canoe is extensive considering the restaurant's size, with excellent options for most wallets.Our server was gracious, helpful and capable. (Not always the case in tourist-season restaurants.) We were disappointed last year, but will revisit this year.
