Default Fosterís Tavern

Opening for Memorial Day: Foster's Tavern, in the newly remodeled space in Alton Bay once occupied by JP China.

By report their soft opening went well: I heard the meat loaf in particular is excellent.

It takes guts and optimism to open a new business these days: good luck guys!

Let's hope they succeed!

I think someone else initially went into J.P. China and were totally done within a few months.

I think the traffic count is high at that corner location so it's a great spot.

Default Fosterís

Yes, I am hoping that they offer something new to the food landscape, and that they succeed. "Downtown Alton", such as it is, needs more attractions, more support, and more year-round venues. I'll be there.

Default Dinner tonight

Had dinner tonight there. I had a classic cheeseburger with bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Had clam chowder to start. Tasty and a large portion. Being local, it's nice to have a new place with a new menu.

They have a large TV over what was the stage at the front of the building, 3 over the bar, and at least two on the opposite wall.

They will have entertainment on the weekend.

We will definitely go back. All hands were working well with each other on what became a very busy night.

Dave

Best of luck to the niece and nephew of Barbara Foster who are opening this new restaurant. Barbara was known on this forum as "Pepper" and was the owner of Waldo Peppers in Weirs Beach. Surely the food will be as good as that served at Waldo Peppers and should be a great success!

We ate there Saturday and rather enjoyed it. The menu was a bit limited, but we understand that that is a function of limited kitchen help. I respect keeping things simple and doing them well until fully staffed.

Really nice bar area. Something that the Bay needs.

We will be back for sure.
