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

We had dinner at the Canoe Club two out of three nights spent in Hanover, and we found the food to be delicious as well as beautifully presented. The fish and shrimp entrees were delightfully fresh and tasty, and the desserts were marvelous. I would advise calling ahead for dinner reservations, since they were very busy mid-week which is always... More

Ate here with friends after getting off the Dartmouth Coach. This hit the spot, as it was late and, although hungry, I needed something fairly light. I chose the roasted beetroot and spinach salad, with the calamari as my main course. Both were very good… I love beetroots and the calamari, especially, was nice and crispy. The latter also comes...
