We dropped in for lunch at Wolfe's Tavern (attached to the Wolfeboro Inn) and were pleasantly surprised at the reasonably priced and down-to-earth menu (lunch: sandwiches, soup, burgers).
Service: pleasant server, attentive, and helpful. Delivery of food once ordered was a tad slow, but not unreasonable.
Food: I ordered a med-rare burger with burn-my-tongue-hot fries: the initial burger was delivered much more on the med-well side and the fries were borderline. I flagged the server and showed her the burger (did not mention the fries). She apologized, took it back and the new burger was PERFECT and delivered with fresh, steaming hot fries. I was happy! My husband ordered the baked fish sandwich: the fish was small and totally overwhelmed by the huge bun. It was tasty, but just not balanced. I gave him half my HUGE burger and he was happy too.
Ambiance: The tavern is a bit on the dark side, though well lit. Very "internal" with no lake views. Given the off season, the place was pretty empty and we had no problem getting a booth by the window. The decorations strived to give the tavern feel: lots of wood, cool fireplaces (gas, but still pretty authentic looking), big bar, multiple rooms, wood posts, etc, Some of the décor felt a tad "contrived." Example: the many generic ?pewter? mugs hanging from the ceiling were a bit jarring in the sameness. I think they are part of some beer challenge, but the fact they are all so much alike was distracting rather than interesting. Overall a good vibe.
All in all, though not perfect, it was a nice lunch and it's hard to find a place that does really good med-rare burgers these days! Give it a try!
