Had another great trip, and yes the cooking is part of the fun but, there is no prep and clearing away to be done. A very social experience and looking forward to going back very soon. |Good range of food and excellent for vegetarians.

Not what I was expecting. The sign should say you cook your own food. Maybe for kids it's fun, but for a mother of four going out for breakfast without kids it was not fun. The griddle was so hot in my face, the maple syrup was watery and weird looking.$3O for two of us was too much especially since... More

I had the complete displeasure of visiting for breakfast a few weeks ago on a Sunday morning. The whole experience is wrong on every level-frozen batter, cold bacon & cold homefries, frozen fruit, awful syrup and poor service. I am by no means a "master chef" but I know how to cook. I was told I was doing it wrong-that's... More

Really, 25 min wait just to get in and find out I have to cook my own breakfast, for real!!! I was never so mad. I was waiting to hear I had to do dishes when I was done.

25.00 for pancakes you have to cook your self...for 2, that were truely nothing exciting...frozen berries...a side of sausage and a side of homefries. The most vile syrup ever...some sort of blackish brown sugar and water mixture with artificial maple flavoring. Seriously? Last I checked NH was a major producer of actual maple syrup that comes out of actual trees.... More

Had the opportunity to visit Griddle in the Middle over the weekend and it was a great experience. This is a unique family restaurant that serves breakfast item. There is a griddle at your table and you are given pancake batter or eggs to which you can add a whole list of add-ins. It was fun and the food was... More

I recently dined at the Griddle in the Middle with my family and we enjoyed it very much. The batter was very tasty, adding your own fruit and toppings was an added pleasure. I highly recommend this place. The wait staff and owners were very friendly and helpful. For the price you can't beat it.

A fabulous social experience in addition to a wonderful eating experience. Whether you want to be a "chef for a day" and cook your own food or choose to be waited on from top to bottom, you'll find it all at this intimate, accommodating and friendly local eatery. The pancakes are the best, the maple syrup is the "real deal".... More

OMG! What a fun experience for anyone. Your table is the griddle and you are brought the batter to cook the pancakes yourself. It's homemade batter and the most delicious pancakes I've ever had. They offer a zillion toppings to add and kids can make different designs and faces. You can also cook your own eggs. Sides like baon and... More

Not impressed at all. Sign should say "Cook your own breakfast". They bring you raw ingredients and you have to cook them on a griddle that is built into your table.This includes pancakes as well as eggs. Griddle was too hot for cooking eggs on and they were brown and leathery. Sides were supposed to be cooked for you, but... More
