Stumbled upon Walter's Basin after day hike of Mt. Morgan. Stunning views - the backside of the building is all windows on Squam. Great server - Michaela complimented the delish food - she recommended the #1 most popular item, fish tacos. True to description was lightly fried with smidge of aioli on top of cabbage in a soft taco wrap.
Get the sweet potato waffle fries - worth the upcharge! Others got caesar chicken wrap, nachos (HUGE PLATEFUL), brussel sprout appetizer. All around great little place.

We stopped here for lunch during a day visit to Squam Lake and had an excellent meal. Their clam chowder was the best I had during our entire vacation in the area, and my main meal of fish tacos and sweet potato fries was amazing. We had a table by the window on a beautiful sunny day, and this was one of our favorite memories from our trip. The staff was friendly and service was good. A little pricey but the quality of the food and view made it worth the stop. Will come back again next time we're in the area.

My wife, sister, brother in lake and I stumbled upon this restaurant on our way home from leaf viewing. It must be a local gem, the food and service were great, even on a busy day. We had the haddock sandwich, melted in the mouth. My brother in law said the fried scallops were excellent. The views of the lake were a bonus. Thumbs up all around.
