We stopped here for lunch both days we skied. It was fine to go ski pants, boots and all. The first day we both had soup- lobster chowder and a Thai chicken soup. The lobster pieces were obviously from frozen lobster and had little flavor but as a chowder it was still good. The Thai chicken soup was good. We... More

We went for Lobster night but by 6:30 they were out of Lobster and the place wasn't busy. Lobster chowder was amazing, but the Salmon dinner lacked flavour, and the medium burger was rare. The waitress asked if we wanted "piping hot fries with that"....both meals arrived lukewarm. No one came around to add how things were. We waited a... More

I was hesitant to return to the Wildcat Tavern since I used to hang out there in the 90's and you know that you can never go back. But I was pleasantly surprised in the level of service, the food and the entertainment during my Friday night visit. We arrived and were seated in the bar area, the musician had... More

Sunday night entertainment, Jon Sarty, brought us here. He is the only good thing about our evening. Haddock was hardly flaky and most likely pre-frozen and tasteless. Brown rice was clumped; broccoli barely cooked. Candied walnut salad good. Perhaps stick with salads.

Food so-so...service by owner to costumers deplorable! I was witness to the owner speaking to customers so disrespectfully..& he COULDN'T CARE LESS! A customer came in..after many customers had been told AN HOUR before they could even put in a food order. This guy only wanted a cocktail..he was told an hour to get a cocktail..mind you there were Empty... More

We stayed at the Snowflake Inn across the street, so this was super convenient. The bartender and waitress were genuinely friendly, suggested dishes from the menu, and had a great sense of humor. We enjoyed a relaxing cocktail, dinner, and lingered by the fireplace afterward....never feeling rushed.

We heard about this great place from locals in Bartlett. They have a buy-one-get-one-free special on lobsters. Such a treat for us South Africans! Great setting with friendly service and a warm atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this to most people.

We went here for dinner and were a bit underwhelmed. The service was slow and the food took a while to make it to our table. The food was average but with an above average price. We found out there was entertainment in the pub as we were leaving, but after stopping to listen for a few minutes, decided to... More
