I am coming back for the rabbit papardella! And the salmon special was great as well. The host was welcoming and the waiter gracious, informative and fun. The chef bounded out of the kitchen and delivered a dish or two! All in all a great...More

My wife and I go to the Peterborough Players four times each summer. We used to look forward to eating at the Waterhouse. I like to eat fish and salad when I go out. The July fish specialty was sole; it was mediocre. The August...More

We had a great lunch on Sunday before our play. We sat in the room overlooking the river which made it even nicer. We have a family member with food allergies and she was able to find something on the menu. We can not wait...More

When you want to celebrate an event, this is the place. The menu has a nice selection (a bit pricey though) Limited wine selection but nice. Our server Ariana was delightful and went above and beyond to provide us with excellent service.

Lovely evening at a table next to Nubanusit River! Quiet polished atmosphere with wonderful waitstaff! Our ever need was cared for. The food was delicious! We just loved those onion rings with the horseradish/chipote sauce. The locavore salad was perfect for the hot summer day...More

We prefer to dine al fresco and this is a great location on the river. The inside dining atmosphere is also quit lovely. Varied lunch and dinner options available, every dish we have had has been well and artfully prepared.

I want to love this place, because it is absolutly beautiful- and if you are lucky to have a seat near the river it is breathtaking. Unfortunately that is all they have going for them. Super over priced, food has never been great-and each time...More
