“Standard diner type food. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Surprisingly good with very affordable prices. Does not have a full bar, but has bottled beer and some wine options. Great for families as they have many larger type tables to accommodate larger groups.”

“Great place to pick up a trail map, have a bite to eat and hike. We love the fairly easy hike up Elephant's Head nearby. The view from the top of a rock that really does look like an Elephant's head is breathtaking.”

Rated as difficult and steep in parts, Mount Martha offers views to Franconia Ridge and Owl's Head has excellent views to the Presidentials, including Mount Washington. Mount Martha is included on New Hampshire's 100-highest list.”

“This restaurant is located​ inside the Mt. Washington Hotel. The food is delicious and you get to take in the views of Mt. Washington from the back patio area at the same time! We highly recommend the prime ribeye and the hand pressed angus burger.”
