This restaurant was amazingly good from beginning to end. Started with shrimp cocktail, which was great and the cocktail sauce wasn't too spicy like it is in some restaurants. Perfect. Then had the buffalo steak special, which was very delicious. Service was superb. Never had to wait for long periods for anything like in many other restaurants. We have eaten at 7 different restaurants during our week in North Conway, and this was the best one of the week. And, we even saw a black bear walking around outside, which was very cool to see.

Dinner for five last week.

Dining area full of children. Don't cone here until 8:00 pm if you like eating with adults.

Food ranged from good to indifferent to bizarre.

Worst was overcooked linguine with flavorless, doughy meatballs.

Best dish was also a bit bizarre. Properly-cooked, large tortellini filled with ground beef and veal, served with an excellent horseradish cream sauce. So far so good. But the addition of small boiled potatoes and freshly grated carrot was bizarre.

Salads were fine. Buffalo tenders app was quite tasty.

Good dessert.

Warm friendly service from owner's daughter.

Well-prepared cocktails.

Thank you for your review and we were glad to read that you enjoyed your meal with us. We take all comments very seriously and discuss these with our award-winning head chef, Stan Shafer.

All our food is cooked fresh and we try to source natural and organic ingredients wherever we can. Our style of cuisine and service is country casual with good, honest food. Our tortellacci are very delicious and the addition of potatoes an unusual, but tasty move, especially with that wonderful sauce. We note your comment about the linguini and will address this.

During school vacation we host a lot of families who visit the many local attractions. You will find that all family friendly restaurants in the area will be busy with families dining late. There are other times of the year such as fall foliage and winter when our guests are mainly couples and groups of friends.

Once again, thank you for your time to review your dining experience.

Reservations recommended, food was great - we had kids meal chicken terriaki & porkchop the only items not fresh were cooked veg and rice pilau. Included breakfast is very nice esp. with fresh fruit options. Service is well-intentioned smooth and friendly but perhaps a little too attentive.

Attended a wedding this past weekend at the Christmas Farm Inn. The service was held in the Barn which great and the reception was in a tent on the property on the grounds of the Inn. Everything was done perfectly. The owners were present throughout the entire wedding to help in any way. One of the guests at our table asked for a special dinner meal and one of the Inn Keepers had the meal to her within 5 minutes. Great food, great service, great location. The Room was clean and very comfortable. A friendly atmosphere.
