The waitstaff was great--friendly and efficient. The food was not. I was underwelmed by ceasar salad with a creamy dressing really? Why not true ceasar? This seemed Straight from a bottle, red leaf lettuce and what tasted like packaged croutons, the parmesan was attrocious, very low quality. Wine by the glass selection was dismal--Beringer and Yellow Tail--you have got to... More

We were struggling to find somewhere to eat in Franconia and the Inn seemed the best option. We were not disappointed. In fact, we returned the following night. It is the sort of inn where you might expect to find Bing Crosby singing `White Christmas`!

We ended up here on one of those crazy leaf peepers weekends without a reservation. This is a beautiful New England inn with excellent food in an region where fine dining is a rarity. We were treated well. Our waitress was a newbie, but sought assistance when needed from more experienced staff.

Found this quaint little inn and on review the restaurant had great ratings so we gave it a try. The atmosphere was as expected, the service was friendly and attentive, and the food was unbelievable. Definitely the best meal so far on this trip. The lobster bisque was creamy and rich with large pieces of meat. The house salad was... More

We went for dinner at the Franconia Inn twice. The first time was so good that we took other friends the next week. We went with another couple the first week and both started with the lobster bisque. We were happy that each couple ordered one bowl. It is rich creamy heavy and absolutely delicious. There's enough lobster so that... More

2nd time here in 3 months, first time Memorial Day weekend. Couldn't wait to bring the whole family. Don't stay if you're looking for modern, spanking new accommodation! This place is the real McCoy. So charming. Even hubby who always wants the 5-star fancy hotel really likes it here. Something for everyone. 2 restaurants - my critical foody daughter was... More

We loved our weekend at this inn. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly. The dinner we enjoyed was so elegant and excellent food. A wonderful quaint New England inn.

Both breakfast and dinner have a nice variety of choices, we stayed for a weekend and were able to enjoy 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts. We tried things that we ordinarily would not order and were not disappointed. The staff is gracious and want to please. Enjoy the experience!

Ok, this place was amazing. The dinner was to die for & breakfast was good. Clearly the wait staff of dinner superseded the breakfast staffs' ability. Hubby suggested we cancel reservations for the next night elsewhere and stay here (should've listened to him!). We started with apps; he an amazing Ahi Tuna and I had a decadent cream of crab...

My wife and I had dinner at the Franconia Inn during a recent visit to the White Mountains. We have dinner there every time we visit the area, and we've always enjoyed it, but it was a bit disappointing this time. We made reservations ahead of time (via e-mail), for a Friday night. We were seated in a smaller dining... More
