    We had a marvelous time at Canoe on Saturday. We arrived by boat, and Canoe sent a shuttle to pick us up. The young man driving was very personable. We were seated right away on the back porch and greeted by our wait staff. Service was excellent - food was excellent. It was a great experience. And yes - they did give us a ride back to our boat.

    They ran out of bread, which was disappointing b/c they should have been prepared given it is their high season. Otherwise, great food and service, better than we expected for that region of NH.

    Very convenient to town docks after our boat ride. Our waitress Emily was so sweet to our granddaughter, also named Emily. We also loved the sweet potato fries. All in all a great family experience.

    I always tip 20% or better. The restaurant's automatic application of 20% for a large gathering is bold, if not excessive.

    Dined on 8/7/2008
    The Canoe is always a very safe bet for very good dinning from lunch through evening. It is so popular that it really is a good idea to go early and get your orders through before the volume catches us to the kitchen; and the wait staff doesn't match the menu, food or kitchen solely due to inexperience.

    Excellent restaurant! We have a summer home on the lake. Canoe is always our choice when we take company out to dinner. It is always a winner! Occasionally, we even come up in the winter, just to go to Canoe! You can dock at the town dock and walk a short distance, or call and they will come pick you up there. Choose the potstickers & calamari for starters, or for a quick lunch, they are to die for!

    We thought the mac and lobster was to die for (loved it). I will definetly go back for it. And the sweet and sour calamari was also great! OH and the creme brulee was awsome.

    We have driven by Canoe many times and are glad we finally stopped in to eat there. Great food and service and we plan on going back. Parking is limited and while we were able to find a parking spot were happy to see that a shuttle was offered. We plan on recommending Canoe to friends and family.
