Hart's Turkey Farm

We ate at Hart's Turkey Farm on a Saturday night. We were seated promptly and given some carrot pickle relish with crackers and put in our order for drinks. The menu had a good and creative selection of turkey with entrees that ranged in price from $10.99 to $16.99. They also have a good selection of meat and seafood offerings from $13.99 for a ham dinner to $27 for king crab legs to $29.99 for twin filet mignon.

My husband and I both chose hot turkey sandwiches with real mashed potatoes and all the trimmings. These were priced at $10.99. The turkey was fork tender, the stuffing and the whipped potatoes were homemade (nothing packaged here, folks). Hubby had butternut squash, which was good and not watery, and I had pickled beets, as good as I make them. We were brought a basket of rolls and corn bread (both were good but the corn bread was fantastic).

There were pie, cake, and puddings for dessert. Hubby had Death By Chocolate (white and dark chocolate mousse over a chunk of chocolate cake) and I had bread pudding. We both yum-yummed through the sweets.

Hart's Turkey Farm is the most reasonably priced restaurant (except for fast food) in the Meredith area. It is a casual place, comfortable for families. The service was good; our server was a mature woman. She was prompt with our order and attentive to our needs.

The next day, we were back for lunch and asked for the same server. This time, hubby had a turkey club with both white AND dark meat (they ask you what you like), and I had a Gobbler, which is a roll with sliced white meat turkey (I could have had dark or mixed if I'd wanted), stuffing, and cranberry jelly. We were also served French fries that were hot, crisp, and not at all oily. We were stuffed when we finished and passed on dessert.

I'd eat at this restaurant again when I'm in the area. Heck, I'd drive there if I wanted a good turkey dinner! The food was great and we were happy. I had read some negative reviews of Hart's that indicated it is a tourist trap. There's a gift shop in the front. So what? I didn't mind walking through the kitsch on the way to a good turkey dinner.

What's a turkey dinner without pumpkin pie?  I ate so much at Hart's, I had to get my pie to go.
