Inn, hotel, and B & B dining around the North Conway, NH area

We go to the Inn at Crystal Lake almost every Friday night for Fiesta Fridays - authentic Mexican food. Their regular menu is also excellent.

We eat in the very eclectic, fun Palmer House Pub.

The owners (Tim and Bobby), chef, and wait staff are very friendly and the service is great. Monty the super dog will greet you when you arrive.

It's our favorite restaurant. The kitchen opens at 5 and closes at 8:30.

Dinner in Lowell?

Mr. Jalapeno has been replaced by a new Mexican restaurant El Potro. I've been twice. I had chicken enchiladas that were excellent. Chips and salsa also good.

Mr. Jalapeno, great Mexican in Lowell, MA

Apparently, Mr. Jalapeno has closed.

There is a new restaurant called El Potro with a sign that says opening soon in the same location.

There's another El Potro in Somerville.

East Boothbay General Store

And, they carry the world's best potato chips:

Fox Family Chips

Flynnagan's, Tamworth, NH

Flynnagan's, 237 Ossipee Lake Rd, Tamworth, NH

They're open for breakfast and lunch. We've been twice now, both excellent experiences. The owner and waitresses are friendly. The service is good.

Here's what we've tried so far:

1. Eggs Benedict, cooked perfectly and very good Hollandaise
2. Eggs and delicious home made corn beef hash
3. Belgian Waffle with strawberries, excellent
4. Mexican omelet special, very good - could have been spicier.

Heading north on route 16 in West Ossipee, turn right onto route 41. In 1/2 mile, turn right onto Ossipee Lake Road. Flynnagans is on the left 0.3 miles further. It's set back from the road and a little hard to see - the sign is easy to miss. It's just before a car repair shop.

Bonus: Outside seating

Lunch stops on way to Storyland?

Here are some places that we like, all on route 16:

Sunny Villa for Lunch or Dinner

Rosie's for Breakfast or Lunch

North Conway
Black Cap for Lunch or Dinner

Delaney's for Lunch or Dinner

May Kelly's for Lunch or Dinner

Flynnagins, Ossipee, NH

Has anyone tried Flynnagins? If so, how was it?

Does anyplace make a date shake, preferbly north of Boston?

I was going to suggest having your date go without a coat.

Whittier House, West Ossipee

New rumor - it will reopen as a microbrewery.

Whittier House, West Ossipee

I heard a rumor that it will be a Common Man.

Whittier House, West Ossipee

What happened? Is it closed? When I drove by the parking lot was empty and the lights were out.

Where to eat in Haverhill / Amesbury?

Or the Barking Dog's sister restaurant the Amesbury Ale House - great beer list and good food.

best fun bar for college chums to gather around the holidays. note: we graduated in 1985

Could it be the bar?

White Lake Inn and Tavern, Tamworth, NH

Formerly Sammy's Paw Print.

Any reports?

What is fresh and new near North Conway?

That's Sunny Villa

Jalisco Mexican Restaurant North Conway

Please report on this new place.

Two Black Dogs Country Pub, North Conway


Amesbury Ale House - Excellent

We went tonight and were very pleased. Nice ambiance - an old building with restored brick walls and hardwood floors.There's a view of the falls on the Powwow river from the back of the restaurant. I actually spent a lot of time in the basement of this building when I was a kid. It was a department store called J.J. Newbury's; the toy section was downstairs.

I had their Spicy Fried Fish Wrap which was terrific, although not that spicy.

My wife had the Haddock Sandwich that was also very good, but she thought the batter was a little bit heavy.

We also shared the shaved onion rings appetizer with bourbon horseradish ketchup, thin cut and crispy - very tasty.

FYI, in spite of what the name suggested to me, they have a full bar.

We will definitely return.

Pot Buoy Pub & Grille, Boothbay Harbor

Not yet, but I'm in Boothbay now, so it may happen. I think they have a happy hour with half-priced drinks. I did stop by on the way to the Thistle House Inn and skim the menu outside of the restaurant - nothing stood out. This does not appear to be fine dining, not that that is a bad thing.

We have had several excellent meals at our old standbys. And we have yet to revisit McSeagulls and Boathouse Bistro.

Report to follow.

Good to hear from you again Kevin.

Is there anything new in Boothbay?

Bump - let's try again before my vacation.


Newburyport lunch help

We like Stripers and go often - it's in Salibury on the opposite side of the Merrimack River from Newburyport.

They have deck dining with a view of the boats in the river and the draw bridge opening.

Also good:
Boothbay Harbor

East Boothbay

I'll be there soon. Please post what you liked (or not).


Thistle Inn
55 Oak St, Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538

Is there anything new in Boothbay?

This is my annual pre-vacation request.

I noticed that Boathouse Bistro has a new and appealing menu.

Is there anything else new or interesting that we should know about?


What's good in Tamworth/ Ossipee NH?

Oops. I forgot about Sunny Villa. We have been there and the food was good. It was renovated after a fire and now has a fresh, nice interior. The bartender and wait staff are competent and friendly.

What's good in Tamworth/ Ossipee NH?

We like
The Inn at Crystal Lake in Eaton . Also, The Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich. Either is
is about a 30 minute ride from Tamworth. Enjoy.

What's good in Tamworth/ Ossipee NH?

Rosie's on Rt 16 in Tamworth has great breakfasts. Jake's Seafood on Rt 16 in Ossipee is good.

Otherwise, a restaurant wasteland.

How far can you venture?
