Ambiance is nice. Lively and cozy. Service was fine, especially considering how busy it was. Appetizer kale salad was garnished and seasoned well. The big big disappointment was the lamb ragu. I can't imagine that much thought was put into this dish. I was expecting it to be served with some type of pasta, perhaps pappardelle as ragu often is.... More

It is sad that restaurants only want clients to have dinners at night for so many of us have already eaten our main meal at noon. Having located suitable parking for a show at Dartmouth College, we still had time to get a light meal somewhere within walking distance of the college venue. Molly's Restaurant was full with a 20-30... More

I went in a large group and the staff was more than accommodating. Our waiter was very attentive and charming, and he never lost patience even when dealing with our table was like herding cats. And the food was stellar!!! The mussels appetizer and the hot lollies were my favorites. Not to mention excellent classic cocktails and great atmosphere with... More

I enjoyed the bar the most - comfortable seats, attractive décor, and excellent cocktails and beer selection. Food in the dining room was very good, if not especially inspired. Everyone was happy with their meals, even though they weren't wowed. The chocolate dessert was fantastic!

We ate twice for lunch at the Canoe Club during a recent stay in Hanover. The restaurant has a charming, cozy feel that was just right on a snowy day. The menu is small but quite nice and reasonably priced. Service was very nice. We often split an entrée or sandwich for lunch, which is sometimes frowned upon. Canoe Club... More

We needed a quick dinner before a hockey game and had heard that the Canoe Club was a nice spot. Although they had reservations for most of the evening, they sat us in the bar area when we promised to be out of there by a certain time. The host was incredibly nice and the waitress was helpful and efficient.... More

In town for a visit to Dartmouth chose this dinner spot as it was characterized as the place Dartmouth students take their parents. Apparently Dartmouth students are not only intelligent but they have great taste. Each course was better than the next. Our appetizer, Hot Lollies, grilled shrimp with Asian noodle salad, was a welcome change from your run of... More

After a few drab meals elsewhere, it was a delight to taste some flavoursome dishes. Malay shrimp curry; prawn, pancetta and tapenade in pasta. A good vibe and friendly service.

I liked the bartender, who was friendly and efficient. I liked the margarita and the many draft beers. I liked the pork schnitzels.

Annual trip to New England and Hanover, annual return to Canoe Club. Seems to be a favorite of locals as well as Dartmouth students and alumni as all can be found in this establishment enjoying the food. We always share the mussels and are always extremely satisfied with them. Unfortunately they ran out of the yummy butternut squash soup we... More
