“Great dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

The Sweetheart Inn is off the beaten path, but well worth the adventure. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the food was excellent.

“really the owners treat customers like this????”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

Had an event here today, server was excellent, food good, but the owners were rude, at the very least not helpful, or interested in ours needs, no customer service skills at all, wouldn't even answer a gratuity question, that I asked several times several different ways, I feel badly that the server may not have been tipped what she deserved, for her excellent service. I will personally never go there again. Not for drinks, not for dinner not for an event. Shame on you for not answering a direct question, and for making me keep asking to no avail, before you stormed away.

“Our favorite spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

Sweetheart Inn feels like our own secret spot... it's tucked away and off the beaten path, the food is excellent (my favorite is the pan seared haddock, and my husband loves the prime rib), the drinks are the best (Long Island Iced Teas made by Marie, who has been serving up drinks there for at least 25 years!), and the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. It's our "go to" spot on Friday night (and sometimes Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday, too!)! It is unlike all those chain restaurants where you are just another customer. Often the owners will come out and visit with patrons, you'll get to know the people sitting next to you at the bar, and you will feel right at home! If you have never been there, finding it is the first challenge. But once you do, you'll definitely go back!

“Three times and always a charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

We've been at the Inn 3 times (we don't get to Methuen very often) The food has always been fine. We love the atmosphere and I think more people should give it a chance.
