Maybe we got stuck with the leg and a thigh since it was takeout and they figured we wouldn't discover the deceit until we left the restaurant? But when you advertise a chicken breast it should be a breast unless they notify you in advance of a substitution. Risotto and roasted vegetables were so-so. The salmon was done perfectly ($24)...

Based on the restaurant's decor, the greeting we received, and the live jazz music, I thought we were in for a great dinner. The food, however, was too inferior for that to happen. Our fried calamari appetizer had very little calamari and did not have the lightly fried texture that we enjoy. My wife's veggie burger was thin and so... More

We went after a matinee play in White River and even at 4 pm we got wonderful service and a very nice cheese board.

My wife and I went to the Canoe Club last week and had a fantastic meal. Jaime our server was excellent. The food was great. We had sautéed mussels in garlic sauce topped with French fries and aioli sauce as an appetizer. They were unbelievable. The filet meal was done perfectly. Well worth the trip.

We had burgers at the Canoe Club and they were tasty, very tasty. The atmosphere is great -- lots of canoes and paddles and old camp brochures and Dartmouth outing club type stuff on the walls. A clubby, pleasant, campy spot. The burgers were fine, well prepared and tasty. And the service was very nice too.

So, the Canoe Club is wonderfully located in downtown Hanover. It offers a very interesting menu, better than average service, and while our sample was small, two entrees, drinks and salad, they were all consistent in their mediocracy. My "stew" was tepid colored water with one small piece of chicken accompanied by a couple slivers of carrots and what at... More

My fiancee and I make it a point to dine at the Canoe Club when in Hanover. We love the atmosphere with its cozy feeling, but especially the excellent food and wines. We rate the food as some of the best we have experienced in New England and we have lived here for over 25 years.

Good food and a festive atmosphere. Easy walk if you are staying at the Hanover Inn, but could have trouble finding parking if you are driving there. Make sure you stay long enough for the magician to visit your table.

We had dinner there last night. Looking for a romantic place, with great food, willing to pay the extra for a nice dinner. Our waiter was nice and courteous, and very helpful. There were a small band playing, which was nice, all for a nice setting, until we got the food, which was not more then average. Our beef fillet... More
