Nothing is earth shattering delicious, but food is solid. Good selection of beers on tap, nice atmosphere and very friendly staff

We ate at Walter's Basin four times during the summer of 2012 and loved it. The restaurant is under new management and unfortunately the restaurant has gone way down market. The atmosphere was horrible and the service was even worse! We waited an hour before our water and bread arrived at the table. We had also ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio which arrived a little after the water and bread. The food wasn't worth eating. We shall not be returning until we hear good reports about it.

Excellent food and service. We ate there twice, and will return next summer! The view of the lake was lovely, and we got a kick out of the history of the restaurant's dock!

We were staying in Holderness recently and my kids only wanted to eat in the pub at Walter's Basin. Great view, extremely nice wait staff, and some really yummy dishes. We especially liked the calamari appetizer with sesame and the steamers. Lobster dip was great and my son loved the seafood casserole. Good bar, good vibe, and pool tables to keep the kids happy.

Being able to see LIttle Squam Lake while dining is great! Food was very good- try the buffalo chicken eggrolls! Yummy!
