Walter's Basin changed hands sometime last Fall, and my favorite restaurant just isn't the same. :( Does anyone know if the previous owners have opened up a new restaurant in the area? Any idea where the chef works now?

My family wnet over there about two years ago and loved it. If you find where the owner now is running a place let us know.

We tried to go to Walter's last night. The web site indicates they are open at the bar all week, but when trying to call (several times), all we got was voicemail. It was not worth the risk that they might be closed, so we went elsewhere. Does anyone know the scoop?

I have no scoop, but driving by there Wednesday around 8, there wasn't a parking spot to be had.

I have coffee every morning with a man who goes there quite frequently and to the best of my knowledge, the ownership has not changed, the current chef has been there for about a year +/- and he is doing an excellent job and the food is wonderful. The resturant is open, doing well and I know for a fact that they are open tonight with atleast one party of approx. 20 people expected.

Last night Nhescape, Redwing , myself and a few others had dinner at Walter's Basin. I hadn't been there in years because my past experience was not a good one. Well---last evening the food was wonderful. I had the best chicken I have ever tasted. It was moist and delicious. Everyone loved their meals. We will return again in the future.

Many years back. we kept our boat at Squam Boats across the river from what is now Walter's. Unfortunately what is now a restaurant was the bowling alley!

The Ms and I decided to stop at the Basshole Lounge after a day hiking the Rattlesnakes and Col Trail. Excellent Sunday for hiking.

We had a great experience. The dining room is closed but the lounge was busy. The bartender did an excellent job tending bar and waiting on tables without extra help. I am surprised they did not have the hostess piched in. She pretty much stayed at her station.

The Bison burger was top notched on a sourdough bun with generous amount of lettuce, tomatoes and caramelized onion. The sweet potato fries was served with a NH maple syrup/apple cider sauce. Sweet!

The Ms had chicken salad sandwich with cranberry and almonds. It was garnished with apple slices. Fresh large onion rings were served with a tangy honey mustard. She was impressed!

I heartily recomend the restuarant on your trip to the Holderness area.

BTW, the Basin is for sale for 1.195 mil. Including the furnishing and current staff/management.

Does anyone know if they still do brunch on weekends?

You figure the Squamies will think it is not appropriate in their back yard! :laugh::laugh::laugh:

I had the buffalo tenders and they were absolutely nothing to write home about. The sandwiches did look good.

Big change a few years ago, unfortunately seeming to attract bikers into the bar. Now too much of a roadhouse for us. Brunch also was not what it used to be a few years ago.
