Stopped by for lunch while cruising through town. We sat at the bar, the wood top was beat up but with a great lacquer on it. Such a cool look...that bar top had seen things. The Bartender was great serving us french onion soup, urgers, sandwiches and a great Rueben. As always, the best way to start is their pretzels... More

Excellent food and service in a warm and comfortable spot. The current location opened after the location at Dartmouth closed. The same menu I believe and the same warm and friendly vibe. The House mustard with pretzels before dinner is a must-have.

We stopped at this interesting little pub-style restaurant for lunch recently. The menu was varied but typical and included a group of interesting daily specials. We had the 'famous' seafood chowder and the sandwich special. Very good. The service was first rate, the decor very traditional, and there is a small gift shop next door. All in all, an excellent...

We stopped here for lunch on our way home from a weekend in Burlington Vermont. It was only a couple of miles off of Rt. 89, and broke up the 3 hour drive. The building is a very old looking farmhouse, typical for New England. Besides being a bit dark inside the atmosphere is really nice. We ordered nachos as... More

The service here is very friendly and the place has a lot of regular return customers. The food is excellent, and the hamburgers were particularly good. The beer selection is outstanding. The food is pub-style, fresh and ample. We would return again and again.

We truly enjoyed our visit to Peter Christians. It was Colby-Sawyer homecoming weekend, and we were told it would be a 35 minute wait, but we were seated in less than 15 minutes in a cozy corner booth. We really liked the feel and decor, and felt like we were in a tavern back in the 1800's. Everyone in our... More
