There are so many great restaurants around Lake Sunapee. They are dappled around the lake within a few different villages. Therefore, I will list the best restaurants in Lake Sunapee, NH by town. The best meal we had hands down was Peter Christians Tavern. I loved the upscale tavern feel. We also loved our experience at Suna.
The Best Restaurants around Lake Sunapee, NH
Suna– This is the place for a fancy cocktail or a nice sit down meal. We actually stopped by here for a drink on the way to dinner and then liked it so much we stayed. I would highly recommend getting anything with a “bubble.” It is a bit like a science experiment. Once it pops, it gives the food a smoky flavor.
The name Sunapee comes from the Algonquian words suna which means “goose” and apee, which means “water.”
Ziggy’s Pizza– If you are looking for pizza, Ziggy’s is the place. They also serve salads, wraps, sandwiches and wings. There is a good kids menu for picky eaters.
The Anchorage– located right on the water, this is a great place to visit in the summer. Most tables have a view of the water. If you are coming by boat, there is free parking for you too!
Bubbas Bar & Grille– Nice casual restaurant with comfort food. They have a pretty extensive kids menu where meals are $8.99 and come with a drink and a dessert.
Salt Hill Pub Shanty– located at the base of Mount Suanpee, this is the perfect place for a beer after a day on the slopes. They have an sizeable beer menu and live music every weekend.
Fat Belly Deli- this is where we came for coffee and a breakfast sandwich every morning. There is no seating here, it is only take away. But the food is delicious. It is also a great place to grab a picnic lunch if you are hitting the trails. They have a full deli and amazing soups you can purchase by the tub.
Peter Christians Tavern– Old-fashioned tavern serving sandwiches, chowder, pub grub & hearty entrees since 1975. This was our favorite dining experience in the area. They also have a cute little gift store.
Flying Goose Brew Pub– A warm, easygoing hangout with a fireplace & mountain views offering pub grub & house-brewed drafts. Reservations are recommended.
New London Inn– Featuring upscale casual farm-to-table New England dining in the Coach House Restaurant and Bar, where contemporary American comfort food meets a vibrant bar scene that showcases craft cocktails, local beers and a curated selection of wines.
The Old Courthouse– Sophisticated American cuisine served in an elegant former courthouse building dating back to 1826. They offer a brunch on Sunday from 9- 1:30.
Sweet beet is a program of the Kearsarge Food Hub, which is a nonprofit organization on a mission to reinvigorate the community within a restorative local food system through cultivating food sovereignty, growing engaged learners, and nurturing community. This little market also has a cafe serving breakfast, lunch, coffee and pastries which are fresh from their own farm.
