Wow – thanks for helping me avoid Crustaceans. Sorry you had such a lousy eating experience here. Next time, try the Eastgate – slightly more upscale, but good food (the pasta dishes need help – their sauce sucks) – but they’re otherwise very good. We use them as our "occasion" place. Another place in town to check out is The Italian Oasis. Again, sauce needs help, but seafood is good, everything is fresh and as long as you don’t get a waitress named Tara, you’re set for service. LOL
Hmmm.. I’ve only been to the Littleton Diner once and was not impresse d- too busy to provide good service. For a really good breakfast place, try the other end of town, the Coffee Pot. The owner, Jean, runs the counter and will make you feel like a long lost friend.
Thanks, Roy! You’re post made me nostalgic for the NH mountains. Glad to hear things haven’t changed. [;)]
Well, we’re back from New Hampshire and never did make the Littleton Diner although I did see it and have no doubt that it is a great breakfast place. It was kind of a long drive from our lodging and didn’t fit the schedule.
Places we did hit for dinners were: Crustaceans, in the Thayer Hotel in Littleton. Surprisingly small and really not memorable except for the drunk falling off the barstool in the bar and being escorted (or aimed) out the door soon to be followed by his likewise baseball hat clad buddy. Also the waittress who never returned with the bill and didn’t bring the rolls till after the meal was served. Food..Ehhh!
Chowder, tasted decent but was all potato chunks with the skins on. Steak, tough as heck but tasted good on a positive note. Clams linguine..ok but the clams in the half shell were cultured and about the size of dimes. Not worth the effort to remove the meat.
Considering the name, a real disappointment.
Rosa Flamingo’s in Bethlehem. Another place with a waittress problem.
Ordered the featured special of half roast duck which, though tough, might have been a bit more edible had I been offered a sharp knife to cut the creature. Never saw the server till I had ripped it to shreds at which point she showed up to offer dessert menu’s or the bill. Some of the party ordered Sambuca’s and coffee’s. Sambuca’s arrived and I won the bet that the coffee’s would never follow..I was right till the waittress happened by and said "oh! you wanted coffee with that??"

Third spot was the Fabyan Station. A little better with not memorable food but passable, with ok service. Pretty restaurant in the old railroad station though.
Does everybody have to serve squash for a vegetable?
I’ll second the Littleton Diner. Nice place. In fact, for a small community, Littleton has a very nice, very walkable, downtown. We spent several hours doing the "walkable bit" last October.
Try Polly’s Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill. My family enjoyed it last year. Polly’s is reviewed on this site.
We’ll be heading for Twin Mountain, NH in the northern White Mountains of NH this week for a few days to visit relatives in a RV park. Any recommendations for eating places in the area would be appreciated although I expect there won’t be a lot. Have heard of a place called Crustaceans….in Littleton..any good?
