Rating:: 5 Peaks & #1 Restaurant in NH by the Lodge
We will be honest: this is our personal “favorite restaurant” … and No, we don’t own it!! (We just love it!). This self-styled “casual gourmet” eatery is eclectic in style … both in food as well as décor. Architecturally, it is very interesting, artsy, unique and full of history. But the food – the real reason you go to a restaurant – is fantastic! We’ve never heard of anyone ever having a bad meal there, or even a mediocre one. The food is fresh, of excellent quality, ample in portion and very reasonably priced for the wonderful experience you get. The place is also immaculate, inside and out. I know this firsthand, as I have been through the kitchen and witnessed their extensive cleaning schedule. It is spotless. The food is also gorgeous … as you would expect from a chef who is both an artist and a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design! Each plate is a work of art.
Owner/Chef Larry Baima has been personally running the Thompson House Eatery for 30 years. I have always thought the world of him, his food, restaurant & staff, and I’m delighted that it is located directly across the street from the Lodge, offering our guests a great “walk-to” dining experience. But it wasn’t until I hosted a large, 175-person wedding at which Larry was the caterer that I became totally in awe of him! This man knows food … every aspect of it!! There are many good, even excellent restaurants here in Jackson, but we have a very special affinity for The Thompson House Eatery. My favorite is the Spinach Savannah, a dinner salad that I could live on every day; my husband loves Lorenzo’s Loaf. One word of caution: this is not a “family” restaurant. There are no high chairs or strollers allowed; the needs of families with small children are better served in other places. However, for a special occasion, a romantic getaway dinner or really ANY excuse you can manage to come up with for a night out, you will not find a better restaurant in all of New Hampshire, if not all of New England! This one gets our highest praise … (and will get you 10% off if you show the waitress your room key from The Lodge before ordering). You can often get seated without a reservation during the off season, but reservations are a MUST during busy times, and highly suggested always, as this is an immensely – and justifiably popular place.
Getting to the Thompson House Eatery from the Lodge doesn’t take long as it is located right across the street. You walk across the street towards the barn. The Thompson House Eatery is on the far side of the barn. If you are driving you make a left out of the Lodge, go 100 yards and make a right onto Main Street and go 100 yards. The Thompson House Eatery will be on your right.
