Burdick Chocolates was recommended to us, so we decided to stop in Walpole on our way home from a day in Vermont. The village of Walpole is a busy place and Burdick Chocolates is no exception. It was 2:30 in the afternoon and we were asked if we had reservations. We did not. The place was packed. Dress is nice/casual in the restaurant, but the take out is anything goes. I will say the staff was pleasant, saw to our every need and we were seated after a few minutes wait. We started with one red and one white glass of wine, and the wine was very good (we ordered house) so we were off to a good start. The bread and butter came next and maybe because it was lunch I found the crusts rather hard. The bread was not warmed, but it was tasty. Next came our appetisers, we both ordered the Charcuterie Plate and there was a sausage round that was hard and chewy, however, it had a lot of flavour. The veggies on the plate were exceptional, the meats were just ok. I ordered the Steak Frites which was melt in your mouth tender, with the best French fries I think I've ever had. My companion ordered the House Beef Stew and said it was a little too rich for her, but she said it was very good. For dessert we both ordered the Pumpkin Spice Latte (exceptional) and a slice of the Engadiner Nusstorte. The torte's filling was exceptional, but the crust was rock hard. We could not cut it with our forks, and when no one was looking used our hands to cut it in half. We happened into the Chocolate Shop next door after lunch, and bought chocolates for the kiddies. They have Halloween theme candy choices which are quite clever and a huge chocolate haunted house which got a lot of attention. The chocolates are excellent. The Lunch cost us just over $100, our table and chairs were comfy and the view of the busy village was rather nice. We both wondered about the hardness of some of the foods and wondered if it was because things stood out and it was a very late lunch. So not sure why that was, but if for that I'd have said the lunch was exceptional.

This Resturant was recommended to us while leaf peeping in New Hampshire over the weekend. The food, service and chocolate was outstanding and would recommend visiting if you are in the area. I suggest making reservations if you plan to visit during the fall season. We plan to visit again next weekend.

Stumbled upon Burdick's and stopped for a late Saturday lunch. Old New England setting. Surprised that it offered an upscale menu. Beef stew was excellent, a little on the skimpy side but tasty. Lobster bisque very nice. Deserts the best. You will like it.

We ate here for the first time and were extremely pleased. I had the polenta appetizer and a beet salad, both were extremely well prepared, seasoned and quite flavorful. The polenta would suffice as a meal for those with a light appetite, as it arrives on a bed of corn. The other in my party had the omlette which was delicious. We both had the capuccino which was extremely good. The bill was 47.96 without tip for this meal which is extraordinarily reasonable for the quality of the food and service. The waitstaff was friendly and pleasant, professional and attentive. The decor is quiet and restful. This is definitely worth a detour for a meal if you are within tweny miles of the place, the food is well worth the trip.

This is my third luncheon visit at the restaurant and each meal has been a delight. Today it was Sunday Brunch. Eggs Benedict with prosciutto , poached eggs over the best corned beef hash ever. Food is nicely prepared and presented. The visit to the chocolate shop afterwards is deadly.
