I felt like I had stepped back in time -- in a good way -- when I ate at this restaurant. The menu choices were classics, like hamburgers, meatloaf sandwich, BLT, open-faced turkey thanksgiving day sandwich, clam chowder ... My wife's BLT came with home-made potato chips and my opened-faced turkey thanksgiving day sandwich came on home-made bread and had... More

Have eaten in the bar a few times. Service is usually slow. Have had varied meals there and the food was ok but nothing outstanding and a bit pricey.

Took a two hour ride just to visit this place. It was worth the trip. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection from the calamari to the Ruben to the coleslaw to the steak. They accommodate special requests. Many beer choices and even a few local ones on tap. The waitress Jennifer was a doll.

we live local and stop here often. Any meal in the dining room has been weak. That said, we have enjoyed the fresh popcorn in the bar and the various bar menu items. For, example, the burgers, sweet potato fries and soups do not disappoint. But why did you take the fried pickles off the menu?? They were great with... More

Ate breakfast here while hotel guest and also as part of a 30 person family affair one night. Breakfast is complementary as a hotel guest and enjoyed both the French toast one morning and perfectly poached eggs on the second morning. Only gripe is "maple syrup" noted in the menu really isn't. I find this misleading from someone who comes... More

When my family stays at this hotel we usually have our breakfast here as it is either included in the rate and if not it is reasonably priced. The food is OK . You won't write home about it but you won't be sorry you ate here either. The service is usually decent and lunch and dinners are tasty and... More

We have been going to the Hancock House ever since it opened. It is always clean with an excellent staff. Our favorite waitress is Beth, who is quick with a smile and attentive to her customers. There are other eateries in Hancock that have horrible surly service...this is not one! The food is always good with many exciting specials every... More

Stopped for dinner in April on a Tuesday. Apparently the restaurant is only open on the weekend, so our only option was to eat in the bar, which was a little surprising since trout season should be in full swing. The house salad was better than I expected. I had wings & my companion had a burger, which he said... More

We stayed at the Hancock House over a weekend in early October to attend a family wedding in the area. We had a lovely room that was clean and comfortable, and found the folks at the front desk very helpful with questions we had. The hotel has a nice sitting area in the lobby, a bar, and an attached restaurant... More

This lovely building is in the middle of what looks like a sleepy little town, but there really is everything someone would need for a quiet country life. The interior is just beautiful and the exterior is inviting. The food was great and the prices were surprisingly comparable. We were quite pleased with the service and plan to keep this... More
