“Lots of memorabilia and good food”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Fairly typical, but tasty pub food served in an engaging atmosphere. Location is right in the heart of the tourist area and the menu caters to a variety of tastes. Service has always been good and the place is run efficiently. The bar is a good place for a drink or for food. Our meals have not been quite as consistent as some other nearby locations, but generally have been most satisfactory. You usually get good value here.

“Old and Interesting building”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Recommended by Innkeeper at Isaac Merrill house. This restaurant did not disappoint. House smoked turkey!! Excellent! So much to look at and enjoy and the service was excellent. Our waitress, very knowledgable and friendly and right on with her recommendations for lunch. Still talking about the smoked turkey sandwich. Very generous serving. More than reasonably priced. Thank you.

“Just okay”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We expected MUCH more from this restaurant based on previous reviews. Perhaps it was what we ordered but the food was nothing to write home about. The atmosphere is fun and the folks who work here are very good at what they do. The hostess doesn't miss a beat and the servers were on spot. We just wished the food was something a little more special. We'll definitely give it another try-we think we just hit it on a bad night or, maybe, our tastebuds took the night off.

“Food to die for......atmosphere????”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Food soooooo good you will tell everyone. The thanksgiving sandwich was 4" thick!.Fresh hand carved turkey and homemade stuffing, anfd the pulled pork was fab! The decor is like eating at a garage sale or flea market. The atmosphere is not for everyone, but the food will overide any complaints i have with the decor. GREAT!

“Wonderful Pub!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

After visiting the White Mountains, my wife and I decided to stop at May Kelly's for dinner. The decor is the kind you will never forget. There are knick-knacks everywhere but that's what gives this place its charm. The ambiance and service were excellent! We would definitely go back!
