“Dirty Diner with Dismal Service!”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

What appeared to be a cute little, off-the-beaten-path diner turned out to be...well... the beaten path. The restaurant is very dimly lit, perhaps to try to hide the filth on the tables, floors, silverware and glasses. However, that actually isn't the most offensive thing about this place. The wait staff is not just exceptionally slow (if they surface at all), but they are incredibly hostile to the restaurant patrons. After waiting to be seated for about 30 minutes in a nearly empty restaurant, we were finally seated by a rather dour waitress. She said little to us, and gave us no menus. This, unfortunately, gave us time to inspect the coffee mugs that were encrusted with some type of food material (not sure how it ended up on the mugs), and the equally garnished silverware. About 15 minutes later, a second waitress came to the table, first complaining that she had to serve a table of 5 (that would be us), and then she angrily accused us of seating ourselves. But, she didn't stop there - to our shock, she proceeded to yell at our table in front of the few other tables of patrons in the restaurant, saying that there were other people there before us who needed to be served! Ironically, she immediately walked over to a table of people who had just arrived and began taking their orders. We didn't know if we should be looking for a hidden camera, or if we should make a run for it. We opted for the latter.

“Horrible Service!!!”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

If you're looking for the worst experience of your life this is your restaurant. They sat us down and then we waited 15 minutes for someone to bring us coffee. We had to get our own menus and when a waitress did come over she complained that she had two 5 tops she had to wait on. We told her we were ready to oreder our food and she said no your not because even if you were people came in before you guys. She had know idea that we had been there for over 20 mins at this point because she just came in the room. So after that comment we all left.

Thank you for a great breakfast!

“Worst restaurant experience”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

We went to this restaurant this past weekend and it was a horrible experience....we waited forever to get a table bc there were 4 with dirty dishes on them, once we got seated we had to get our own menus bc no one even acknowledged us and the waitess actually scolded us for doing that. We finally got coffee and told the waitress we were ready to order but she was "too busy" to take our order so after 45 minutes in there, we decided to go to DD and enjoyed our food for a fraction of the price and no attitudes from the staff like we got at this restaurant. Do yourself a favor and avoid this restaurant!

“Average breakfast spot in Campton, NH”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

Stix was worth trying for breakfast, but the food was just what you might get in any average diner. Nothing special, but my egg omelet with spinach and cheese was good. Cornbread was moist and flavorful, but ask for butter to spread on the warm cornbread. My husband's eggs benny were also just average. One thing that was really lacking was cleanliness. Do they even have a vacuum on premises? Price for our two breakfasts was quite reasonable, and the service was good as we were the only ones in the restaurant at 9:30AM on a Tuesday morning.
