I was in Holderness for 8 days and I ate lunch and dinner here once each and they catered our families dinner twice during the visit. Everything we had was delicious! I highly recommend the lobster roll and chowder but you can't go wrong with any of the dishes! Be sure not to miss whatever special drink they have that... More

We had dined here a couple of years with a family party of ten and had a great experience, so we thought we'd try it as a threesome a couple of weeks ago. Our waiter was attentive -- at first -- acknowledging our presence right away and filling our water glasses. Ten minutes later, we were still waiting for him... More

Yesterday afternoon we returned to the outdoor deck at the Squam Lake Inn for lunch, and it was another relaxing experience with good food. With the hot sunny weather we stuck to basics; a crab cake sandwich and a turkey and avocado one. Their umbrella tables helped with the sunshine and their wines were perfectly chilled for the occasion. This... More

Beautiful spot for dinner if you like quaint peaceful surroundings, delicious food and a staff that is passionate about what they do. We dined outside on a gorgeous evening. Checked out the inside and it is adorable and will make a nice winter dining experience. A lot of charm to this place and it is neat as a pin, I... More

The Squam Lake Inn has been a family favorite for years. But this July, the food was just average---and expensive. The location, the staff and the surroundings are so great that "OK" food is a real insult.

Had lunch at this restaurant with family and family friends. The BLTA was delicious. The best part of the meal was the ice cream sandwiches. We had three different types: Chocolate Chip with Vanilla, Brownie with Caramel Sea Salt and Molasses with Ginger. They quartered them for us so we were able to try all of them.

Well what a very pleasant surprise. After driving in a rain storm and in the woods we came to the Inn Kitchen. WOW it was worth the trip. A very special restaurant and staff.

July 03rd brough a collection of 12 family/friends to the Inn for dinner. And what a feast it was. Two people enjoyed the Lobster Bake, others, the fried chicken. The ribs were great and the salads/deserts/wine & cocktails were first class. The setting is casual with seating both indoors and on the deck. Everyone left with the same thought: "Let's... More
