Default Walterís Basin

Four of us enjoyed a delicious early dinner in Holderness at Walterís Basin yesterday. It has just been completely remodeled and has wonderful big windows overlooking Little Squam. All of our meals were terrific, and especially the French Onion Soup! We canít wait to go back!

We've been there many times. I don't know if it changed ownership, I know it was for sale a few years back. It has been pretty good the past few years but before that we had a few visits that weren't so great.

Walter's Basin has always served us a great meal, be it lunch or dinner. I have not seen their remolded interior, but we will hopefully see it soon. Love the views of the vintage boat house and fueling dock.

They have the best french fries in the lakes region. We eat there whenever in the Squam area.

Maybe the "On Golden Pond" affect is waning. I've never found anyone under the age of 35 who knows the movie.

If I remember, they do not have fried clams. The seafood casserole is great.

Great spot- need to check out the remodel. We kept our boat at Squam Boats for years. Walters was a bowling alley then!

If I remember correctly, they had duckpin as well as candlepin bowling.

Made the drive and hit this for a change of pace last night. Very good trip. Food and service were great. View of lake nice and the beers were affordable! Will be back for sure.
