We come from out of town (haha - Keene - 30 minutes away), but that is always what is feels like when we dine here. I saw a previous review with the same complaint - we walk in without reservations (we were doing something - could not get a set time) and it was like we messed everything up for the hostess/restaurant. She immediately went to see if the bar was open (without asking us) to see if we could eat there. Then she came back and we said we don't want to eat our meal at the bar, we would wait for a table - this threw her off. She said - with no thought - 45 minutes. We were fine with that, in no rush. There is no place to wait, so naturally like all other restaurants - you go to the bar to have a drink before dinner. This was another no, no. Those seats are sort of only for dinner. Eventually, we just sat there because we said we would order an appetizer. We start to realize that everyone knows everyone and everyone is 40+. I am 31 (my wife 26) and we were treated oddly. I know that in the Monadnock region that younger professionals are few and far between (sadly) but this was bizarre. One older couple sitting next to us at the bar (they were eating dinner) asked the bartender if people always just walked up to the bar - what??? It is that way everywhere else in the USA. That is what a bar is for - ordering drinks and socializing - this isn't an at home breakfast bar.
On to everything else - awesome! Food was excellent, very well priced, waitress was great.
I guess, my point to this review, make sure you have reservations (even though there website says you can walk in). *** We also saw the hostess turn a couple away later, even though it was probably minutes away from table being open.
