The food items are always creative and tasty. Setting is very nice - better for talking rhan the other DT Hanover dining spots. Only critism : food is not delivered hot...even the soups. More attention to that detail is needed. And, this is based on multiple visits. A small thing to fix....but a big disappointment when the food comes out... More

We chose to dine at the Canoe Club on our second evening in Hanover during a recent visit in mid-December 2016. We were immediately intrigued with the name of the establishment and the potential for ties to the Buffalo Canoe Club on Lake Erie and we were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience, from the delicious food and... More

Previously, my one objection was that the restaurateur had been lured by the fashion for Mexican food. That is no longer the case. The menu is replete with temptations, and succumbing to them is gustatory delight. John Chapin continues to be a most welcoming host, a man who takes pride in everything about his establishment and wants to be sure... More

I ordered the Sea Food Stew Special which I found disappointing. It did not appear to contain the ingredients that were described by the waiter - no shellfish, shrimp or scallops. Instead what was presented was a bowl of shredded fish bits surrounding a cake of polenta. Others in our party ordered burgers and appeared to enjoy them. The beer... More

Maybe we got stuck with the leg and a thigh since it was takeout and they figured we wouldn't discover the deceit until we left the restaurant? But when you advertise a chicken breast it should be a breast unless they notify you in advance of a substitution. Risotto and roasted vegetables were so-so. The salmon was done perfectly ($24)...

Based on the restaurant's decor, the greeting we received, and the live jazz music, I thought we were in for a great dinner. The food, however, was too inferior for that to happen. Our fried calamari appetizer had very little calamari and did not have the lightly fried texture that we enjoy. My wife's veggie burger was thin and so... More

We went after a matinee play in White River and even at 4 pm we got wonderful service and a very nice cheese board.

My wife and I went to the Canoe Club last week and had a fantastic meal. Jaime our server was excellent. The food was great. We had sautéed mussels in garlic sauce topped with French fries and aioli sauce as an appetizer. They were unbelievable. The filet meal was done perfectly. Well worth the trip.

We had burgers at the Canoe Club and they were tasty, very tasty. The atmosphere is great -- lots of canoes and paddles and old camp brochures and Dartmouth outing club type stuff on the walls. A clubby, pleasant, campy spot. The burgers were fine, well prepared and tasty. And the service was very nice too.
