Grew up in Lebanon and I remember when this little shopping strip the Patriot is in was built. I know there were a few businesses in here before The Patriot and they went out of businesses shortly after they went in, so I never got around to trying any of them. I visited my parents one weekend and they told me how they had came here and had a great experience. So I went with them and all I can say is WOW. Such a beautiful restaurant with amazing food. I traveled to Maine this year and couldn't find clam chowder as good as it is at the Patriot. Great service, too!
