“Average...Just Average”
Reviewed December 13, 2009

Atmosphere - generic, yes it tries to be rustic but it wasn't anything special. The music seemed out of place too unless you're a fan of current "Top 20" music.

Service - no complaints here, the waitress was friendly and service was quick.

Food - just like the atmosphere, extremely "franchise" generic. My wife's burger was ordered medium but came well done, and my steak tips smothered in gravy and mushrooms could have been from Ponderosa...a very blah meal. They don't serve loaded potatoes either so instead you get a plain potato on your plate with a plastic container of sour cream.

There are better options in North Conway (try Moat Mountain). It wasn't that the meal was horrific, it was just very generic and the atmosphere was boring.

“We love this place!”
Reviewed December 4, 2009

We ALWAYS have at least one meal at the Muddy Moose whenever we're in town (usually a couple of times a year). We've never had anything less than a delicious meal and excellent service here. Highly recommended!!"

“Bring your appetite”
Reviewed November 24, 2009

The food is very good. There aren't a ton of options, but you can find something everyone will like. The portions are huge. They will also make your dish any way you would like it. The rustic cabin feel of the place with the stone fireplace makes it very relaxing and inviting. We have never had a bad meal here.

“Think twice”
Reviewed October 17, 2009

I certainly didn't expect gourmet food, nor a fantastic dining experience, but I did expect solid good food prepared thoughtfully. We did not get that. The wait staff was clearly over worked and flustered. We dined on the Monday night of this past Columbus day weekend and apparently it was mobbed everywhere, so people were eager to have a break. Our service was non friendly, and plates thrown down in front of us. The place was very noisy, and very bright. The food all looked and tasted like it was frozen from a box and zapped in a micro wave. What a disappointment.

“One of my All-Time Favorites.. Anywhere!”
Reviewed October 13, 2009

I have been going to the Muddy Moose for years, long before I knew about Trip Advisor. I have been known to make 6 hour round trips JUST to go to this restaurant... it is that good. Set on the main strip of North Conway, in what looks like a log cabin lies a treasure. The Muddy Moose has great food, and great drinks. The service is alway above average, at worst. Once in side you are in a great big log cabin. Complete with deer antler chandeliers and a large fireplace. There is a large TV on on side of the restaurant to watch whatever game might be on, or a large deck to overlook the white mountains. Really the food is what keeps me coming back. Large portions, average prices, and excellent ingredients. I cant make a trip to North Conway without stopping here, and sometimes the whole trip IS to stop here!
