“This will not be the last visit”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Omni Mount Washington Resort for two evenings. Not wanting to spend $40.00 plus on a breakfast buffet, we inquired about Monroe's Family Restaurant down the road, but instead was recommended that we try The Waterwheel. (about a 20 minut drive) We were not disappointed.

The friendly waitress asked us if this our first time visiting and we told her it was. She then warned us that the omelets were not skimpy and 6 eggs were used per omelet. She also mentioned that the pancakes were large plate size as she delivered our coffee. (It's rare to have such wonderful coffee at a breakfast stop, but the coffee was great...free refills as well)

We each ordered a breakfast sandwich with a side of homefries and my husband ordered an extra side of sausage patties. Everything was cooked to perfection and delivered to our table in record time. We enjoyed the breakfast so much so that we went back the next day. This time my husband ordered a special including one of those huge pancakes. Wonderful!

We'll be booking again next year for the Mount Washington Hotel and we will be sure to go back to the Waterwheel Restaurant.

“Adorable Breakfast place!”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

The food is great, service is always on point, and the prices can't be beat. If you go on a weekend, expect to wait! They ONLY serve breakfast, so get there before the rush!
