We were a party of 18 and called and made arrangements for lunch at the spur of the moment on a Saturday at noon time. We were handled very well, which is hard to do on a quet day never mind on a Saturday. The food was excellant and with a party of 18 not one complaint. Recommend this highly!
My wife and I stopped in for lunch. The young man that was cleaning tables seat us and was very polite.The waitress came to take our order we asked for a few more minutes she seemed put out. When we did order she just had no smile to her (Laurie). She did come and ask how's your meal. Later my wife had gone to the restroom i had liad some money on the table she came over like lightning had struck her, very rudely do you need change, I simply said I am wating for my wife first.( As she likes to make I tip just right.) As time goes by she in behind the counter she hollers across from the room do you need change. I said no She came running over and grabbed the money and went on her merry way. I think they young man would of made a better waiter. He was part time and had decided to go back to schol. However the food was well okay. Laurie take some personility classes it will help. Maybe we will give you a second chance. Bob
Thought we would try this place out since it was close to the hotel (Best Western) and would save us a drive to Littleton with our 2 kids. We were seated at a table surrounded by flies, then we noticed ants on the wall next to us. When the food came out the fly situation became worse so we asked the waitress (or I think the waitress's helper in this case) if we could move tables. It was like the strangest request to her! We thought she might have helped us move our plates, glasses, silverware but she just walked away. Then the `main' waitress came over and asked what was wrong. After explaining, she shrugged her shoulders and completely ignored us for the rest of the time. No attempt to apologize about the flies or ants, or ask how the food was. It was very disappointing as the food itself wasn't too bad (nothing great though), but the service let this place down and we will not be returning to the Dutch Treat any time soon.
Most of the food is not good, and it smells like smoke in there.
However, if you are in Franconia and don't want to go all the way to Littleton for pizza, they do make a decent pizza, but I recommend to order it for take-out.
I have been there a couple of times while visiting the area. I remember great food and pleasent hospitality. LOL... I even still remember the woman tending bar who also served my meal.
Laurie, she signed her name to my check and placed a smile face on it... I would go back again.
After drinking all night long and getting up for an early tee time at Maplewood...the dutch treat was the place to go. The bacon egg and cheese on a plain bagel was phenomenal. the waitress couldn't give a crap if we were there or not, but the trivial pursuit cards passed the time nicely.
the must have........the bloody mary. it was so spicy, you'd think mary herself made it. i got twenty bucks if anyone can chug it.....i'm feening for one right now as a matter of fact.
Well, there are very few restaurants to choose from in Franconia, and The Dutch Treat was the closest one to our hotel.
We ate at the bar side two nights in a row. The first night the food was good, but service was terrible- took so long to get a drink refill we thought about ordering 2 at a time.
The second night, everything was bad- the food, service, ambiance (there was a woman in there at 10pm with a screaming infant- yes, at the bar, and the music was blasting...we could feel our seats vibrating.) The bartender/waitress was about 100, had the personality of a brick and was incredibly slow.
Not a pleasant experience.
