The Little Red Schoolhouse

Reviewed By GoneTravelin07 - Boston

Given it's not on the coast, the seafood here was surprisingly good. We had some lobster rolls, an order of whole belly fried clams, fries and the kids went for it and had a pretty tasty milkshake while we tried the fresh squeezed lemonade (excellent) and then followed that up with a beer. Great screened-in seating area that is built out over a wooded ravine. While it was a hot summer day outside, the dining area actually stayed quite cool. We went for a late lunch, so there were very few customers when we showed up, but they do have additional seating at picnic tables outside near the parking lot. This is not a place with wait staff. It's very casual - you order at the counter and they'll call you when your order is ready. This is easily one of those places you might zip right by in the car if you aren't actively seeking it out, but glad we found this. I would definitely return.

Reviewed By Jessica G

We used to live here when Mad River was down the street. We were recently back visiting, and got the opportunity to visit their expanded location. Boy, they haven't lost their touch, either! We went here for afternoon coffee and in the mornings
for breakfast every day we were in the area. Also brought home a package of their coffee. They'll grind your favorite blend right there for you, according to what kind
of coffee maker you have at home. They always keep several pots of different blends out for hot coffee, and a jug for iced coffee as well. A lovely selection of pastries and muffins is available, and I noticed they also offer take-home soups and dinners as well. We split a cannoli, which was very decadent. I prefer getting the iced chai, which they offer with coffee ice cubes, or the hot chocolate. Their bagel breakfast sandwiches are amazing, with a variety of meats, bagels and cheeses available. Service is also quick and friendly. They play some really excellent music and have all kinds of comfy seating and books and a chess board to relax with. I wish we could have been there on the nights I hear they offer some excellent live music as well. Check them out, you won't be disappointed at any time of the day!!

Busy Dunkin' Donuts, conveniently located just off the highway either on your way to ski at Waterville Valley, climb Mount Tecumseh or leaf peep on a lazy fall week-end. Place was very busy with long lines, but use your DD App and skip the wait. I ordered while walking in and the wait was about 4-5 minutes, but not bad considering there were probably 10 people in line and 4-5 waiting for their orders.

Six Burner Bistro

Reviewed By Drbrooks4337 - Concord, New Hampshire

This higher end eatery, is definitely the place to get a great meal in Plymouth. Having enjoyed lunch on two previous visits, I was eager to sample their dinner menus. We were not disappointed. Imaginative cocktails warmed our first minutes on this cold evening. For starters the poached oysters were excellent. Our entrees of NY Trip and Pan Seared Duck were accompanied by mashed potatoes and rice respectively, with ample root vegetables. Both were perfectly prepared, presented, and consumed with pleasure. For dessert we shared the Grand Marnier Chocolate Mousse and proclaimed the meal a perfect experience.
I’d recommend reserving a table. We were lucky, arriving a few a few minutes after opening (5pm) and were seated at the last available table.
A bit more refined than most college town establishments, the visit is well worth it.

Walter's Basin Pub or the Basshole Pub

Reviewed By LuckyPenny8 - Jacksonville, FL

We ate at Walter's Basin after taking the Experience Squam boat tour of Squam Lake. We had a table overlooking the lake so the view was great. The food was delicious and the atmosphere warm and cozy. Three of us had the seafood saute which was absolutely delicious. My husband had Elk meatloaf which also was very good. As with everywhere else we ate while in this area I thought the prices were a little high but we would eat here again.

The Italian Farmhouse Restaurant

The Italian Farmhouse in Plymouth, N.H. is a proud member of the Common Man family, and serves delicious Italian food in a quaint farmhouse with spectacular views of 42 acres of surrounding land. Specializing in American-Italian fare, start off your meal with a selection from our antipasti menu, such as Fresh Mussels or Fried Calamari. Try our Antipasto or Verde Salad in between courses, and then delve into one of our hearty main dishes, like Farmhouse Scampi or Cioppino.

The menu is mostly Italian, but there are choices for other regions as well as for vegetarians. Food is well prepared and waitstaff effectively attentive. Garlic bread is available for helping your self along with several choices of dips. Chocolate covered espresso beans are the substitute for the white chocolate at the Common Man.

Reviewed By Shaun K - Singapore, Singapore

Went down with several international students, and really loved the place. The ice-cream has great texture, a generous amount served, and a wide variety of flavours and toppings. Also within the downtown area so its close by for students from Holderness School and Plymouth State University. Would highly recommend for those going out with friends. :)
