“Proof great dining is not limited to the city”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We recently stayed at the Crystal Lake Inn before a concert at the Stone Mountain Arts Centre.
The package included dinner at the Inn. We realized this was going to be a fresh experience when 2 hours before service the chef is picking herbs from the gardens around the Inn!
Clearly these guys love food. All ingredients were fresh and the seasoning and plate items were all about keeping it simple and letting them be the stars. Fresh soups,salads, fish and protein and of course premise made pasteries were all something you would expect from any top rated restaurant in a large city....but this place is a long way from anywhere. So clearly they do it for the love of it. Great wine list.....and prices. And to top it off they have a movie star like dog...Monty....he really runs and owns the place!

“Good food and good atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This pub is at the Inn at Crystal Lake in the quaint town of Eaton, NH. The pub and dining room menu are available in both the pub and dining room. One of my favorite dishes was the pork shanks. The meat would just fall off the bone. In the summer I love to order the Palmer house salad with chicken. You just can't get a bad meal there. Try it, You'll love it!

“Awesome find!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Four of us walked into the Pub on a Saturday night at about 4:30 ( Their sign said they opened at 5:00.) We offered to leave and return at 5:00 but a man who introduced himself as "Bobby" would not hear of it! After some casual conversation, during which Bobby revealed that he was one of the owners, and a look at the menu, we stayed for dinner. Our server, Heidi, was one of the 250 residents of Eaton, NH and did a nice job taking care of us. From the mussels, crab cakes and duck wontons to the steak tips, veal, chicken and delicious salads everything was fresh and flavorful. We only passed on desert to leave room for smores and Baily's around the fire pit! To Bobby, Tim, Heidi and the rest of the crew ( can't forget Monty! )keep up the excellent work! We will be back!

“Adorable little hideaway”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Good food, homey atmosphere, intimate and charming. Tim is a great bartender and his pal Monty....well, Monty is one of a very few dogs you'd want hanging around a restaurant. This shelty actually jumps up on the barstool and sits eagerly like a customer. Pretty cute. The town of Eaton is so tiny. It sits on a beautiful little lake. The scene is gorgeous. Home-cooked food is delicious. Cosmos to die for.
