We arrived for a late lunch after a beautiful day of cross country skiing in Jackson. We did not have a reservation, but the staff accommodated our family. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We ordered crab cakes, a burger and some flat breads. Delicious. We noticed every single table around us ordering wings. They looked delicious. Will definitely try them next time!

My husband and I had dinner at the Wildcat on our 1st night in Jackson. Reservations are a must especially in the fall. The tables are spaced appropriately apart. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating. The food is very good. We started with the Goat Cheese Pillows which were amazing. My husband had the Chicken Pot Pie and I had the Sole Fish dinner. For drinks my husband had a Guinness and I had a glass of Sangria. For dessert we shared a piece of the Fruits of the Forest pie. Our server was Michelle. She was very busy but she made sure we had everything we needed.

Very tasty dinner served in one of the nicest rooms we’ve ever had dinner in. Service was prompt friendly and efficient. Nice Fall decorations and loved the pumpkin people. Fun place to eat and visit looks like it would be very cozy in the winter.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We hope you will be back Stu

A weekend trip to the Wildcat inn in Jackson, NH turned from a couple to Solo trip due to an airline issue. But the trip was still worth it. The Inn itself is old but very cozy. The staff is awesome. All have great personalities and are there to ensure a pleasant experience. The food is very good although a little resort pricey. Beverages are moderately priced. The entertainment is local mountain comfort music. You can walk to other establishments. Enjoyed my visit so much that WE are going back over memorial weekend. And to make a point of how great the place is; we are flying there from Tampa Florida! Enough said?

Always looking to stay someplace new on our winter getaway to the White Mountains we chose Wildcat because of thier competative pricing to the Inn we stayed at the yr before. We always had enjoyed the tavern in the past (outside of poor service on our last visit), so I thought we'd try the Inn. Checkin was smooth. We had arrived early so we enjoyed some delicious wings in the tavern as we waited. We were told our room was ready and the hostess escorted us to the 3rd floor room. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room(s). It actually was a well furnished tv room with a nice fireplace and a separate nice size bedroom with a large attached bathroom. The bed was VERY comfortable. The only negative was the NARROW shower stall. Being above the tavern, i was amazed at how quiet the rooms were, especially with entertainment nightly. The management and staff were very friendly and helpful. The food we had one night for dinner one night was fantastic...especially the goat cheese pillows!!! We will be sure to return

This is my favorite review of 2020 - not because you had a wonderful experience staying at our Inn and you enjoyed the food, but because last time you dined with us you had "poor service". What I love is that you came back to give us another try. I cannot thank you enough for understanding that restaurants are not always perfect, that in spite of how hard we try, like all people we have off nights from time to time. THANK YOU for keeping an open mind and for supporting us. There is nothing more hurtful when someone has a bad experience and posts online that they are NEVER COMING BACK. With deep appreciation............ All the best Stu
