    The food was great. Service, exemplary. Decent selection for all appetites. Pricey. It was pretty noisy in the little front hall where we were seated. There was decent legroom. Beautiful views of the lake.

    We dined here for the Mother's Day buffet (so not the usual menu). I think the food would have been good if it was at a proper temperature, but everything was lukewarm. There were no sauces for things like chicken wings or fried haddock... It was incredibly expensive, too ($240 for 3 adults and a child, who I'm pretty sure was charged full price). :( I will say the desserts were delicious and the Brussels sprouts were great. But...definitely not $240 great. :( Also, apparently salads were included with our meal, but the server never offered those to us (they needed to be ordered, apparently), so we didn't get those...

    We attended a late Mother's Day seating. The buffet was very well stocked, but some of the food was cooler than I would have preferred. Otherwise, excellent food, atmosphere, and service. The staff was pleasant and efficient. I would go again for Mother's Day.

    A wonderful dinner - beautifully presented entrees and delicious flavoring. Couldn't ask for a better evening, especially sitting on the enclosed porch with a view of the Lake. Our service was also great! Highly recommend. Been going to NHH for many, many years and the new owners have made it even better.

    We had a delightful evening! A very nice dinner in the enclosed porch overlooking Lake Champlain. Presentation of food was beautiful & tasted great! Then after dinner we had a glass of wine in the fuzzy chairs in front of the fireplace. We both loved our evening and we will definitely be back there again soon!!

    Napkins are very uncomfortable to use. We were the only table in the restaurant. Said prime Rib on the internet. Waiter said it was not available. Said rib eye steaks on the posted menu on the internet. These were not on the menu we were given and the ribeye was not available. Mashed potatoes were dry cold and without seasoning. The vegetables were cold to the touch. One tenderloin steak was very overcooked. No saucer served with the hot tea nowhere to out the tea bag. Three entrees served then the fourth was served minutes later. Water glasses not kept full had to ask several times. The value, quality, taste, preparation, was completely unacceptable. We are local island folks and trying to support local Businesses during the off season. The discussions at the dinner table should not be how bad things were at your establishment. Management needs to get on the ball or I foresee a strong negative word of mouth on your establishment. Our group were all trained and experienced food service professionals. Actually there were few if any positive experiences for our dinner last evening.

    Our first time at North Hero House since their renovation. The place looks great; staff is friendly; food was great; our waitstaff person was excellent. Very fair pricing. If you've never been - try it and you will not be disappointed. If you are a returning customer, you'll love the changes.

    Very nice restaurant on Lake Champlain. Food was delicious. Atmosphere and service also great! Overall wonderful experience! Highly recommend. We look forward to going back through the Winter and also in the Summer when the Pier bar is open. New owners have done a very nice job with the place. So glad to have a really nice dining option open 7 days a week in the Islands, especially throughout the winter! Will be back for sure!!!

We drove 45 minutes not knowing what to expect and was presently surprised by a great time, lots of fun people, delicious food and drinks, and a beautiful warm atmosphere!! We definitely will attend more events at the North Hero House!! And next time we might even book a room as the Inn is lovely and very quaint with all the new renovations! Thank you again for a wonderful evening!!
