Moat Mountain is a a very big restaurant in an inn. It has a very homey and relaxed feel to it. I went this past weekend and it seemed filled with tourists like myself. They had seven home made brews on tap--standards like browns, pales, and stouts...as well as a double bock and hefe. The beer was hit and miss. The hefe was really good, but the porter left a bit to be desired. The service was excellent. We went a couple of times and the wait staff knew the beer and food. Their descriptions generally matched what was served. The best part about Moat Mountain was the food. I had a baked chicken dish which was amazing. Their squash was superbly cooked. They have brisket nachos which were very satisfying after a long day of snowshoeing. Overall, stop for the food and atmosphere. Order a specialty beer and if it is good, it will add to the experience. Just do not be surprised if it does not.

The taplist had lots of options, but there wasn't anything from my sampler that really impressed me. Nothing bad, just nothing great either. The restaurant service was good and the food is good too, but I think I'd try someplace different the next time we're in town.

Steve and Vickie know how to do this and do it well... Beers are solid and pretty much to style... Always busy, so be patient... Food couldn't be better.... Always enjoy my visit...

This is a great place to stop after a long day of site seeing. The beer selection is good. The best beer they had out of the sampler of 7 was thr Hoffman Weiss closely followed by iron Mikes pale.

OK beer and hit or miss food in a resort town. Not worth the hour wait on a Monday night. Any interesting beer that you want from the menu is out. Their standard beers are good and true to their style but not worth taking home a growler. I was disappointed because I heard good things
