Generally the food is fresh, we'll seasoned, great specials. Visited restaurant a few times a year, one of the better restaurants in terms of clean, atmosphere in the area. On a. Recent visit for Mexican night, great value for meal, however ordered a margarita for $8.95 it was on of the worst margaritas returned it very sour poor quality mix, second one was a little better but still not drinkable. Waitress never brought salsa and chips as asked, was to busy speaking with the manager. Never asked how our food was . Waited a long time after the meal to receive check. Manager needs to pay more attentions to staff activities and retrain the new younger staff. Service with more established staff their is great. It all depends who you get .

I have been to The Mad River tavern on several occasions and i must say have always felt most welcome there.You are greeted in the entry way by a smiling face and notice the open fire in the winter ,there are several rooms not just the main dining room, or you can sit at the bar where live music is an option on week-ends, the menu is quite extensive and reasonable, the food is as you would expect from a 3star type restaurant , and they do not rush you through your meal no matter how busy they get . Walk ins are welcome, as is take out if that is your preference .
The wine list is adequate. I enjoy the place for it,s friendly atmosphere, multiple choices of meats or fish, fresh veg,s and the fact that they appreciate your custom and remember you.

It's a tradition of ours to stop for lunch at the Mad River Tavern in Campton on our way home from our yearly ski trip to Waterville Valley. We enjoy the atmosphere and menu selections. The food is very good and has a home cooked quality about it. The service can be slow at times, but we're never in a rush when we're there so it doesn't bother us. They used to have nice Sunday brunch menu but they discontinued that a couple of years ago which is kind of disappointing. However, we do still enjoy their lunch menu and we've never had bad meal there. We definitely plan to keep Mad River as a regular part of our yearly trip to Waterville!
