Best service I have received in a long, long, time. The waitress was attentive, not annoying...the Food was excellent...muscles were the best...the filet was cooked as ordered and melted in my mouth...the sour dough bread was the best I've tasted in a long time. Would highly recommend this place to my family and friends and especially for special occasions. Atmosphere was cozy and warm with a real down home feeling...LOVE IT LOVE IT!

We gave this restaurant 2 chances and will not go back. The Steak Tips I ordered medium and expected (pink middle) it was well done and has NO flavor. The Chowder and Caesar my son ordered was very good. And lastly the Chicken Pot Pie was less than desirable. Morton's frozen PP is comparable. For the price it is not worth it at all. The first time the waitress was nice and the last time the waitstaff had a very snooty demeanor.

Mediocre experience can be had by all with the added bonus of spending too much money.
Nice ambiance and neat decor but no real value for your $$$.
Nice place for a burger and beer.
Wine is expensive and small pours.

Expensive. Food was hit and miss.
Appetizers very good.
Meat was overcooked (steak tips) and prime rib was tough.
Would not travel that far to go back.

They do an excellent job cooking seasonal. Chef Rich Edes could be anywhere. The diners in this suburb are lucky. What could be fresher than pulling from your own farm, right outside the kitchen door?

The atmosphere is very relaxing and the wait staff have always been pleasant. The wine selection is very good. I have dined there about ten times and have really good beef and a few times not good. The same goes for the salmon; a few really good plates and the last one was well described by the NASHUA writer. It was overcooked. I feel all the meals are pricey. I continue to visit but never expect gourmet.

Four of us visited Gibbet Hill Grill, it was a repeat visit. As with the first, everything was wonderful. I suppose every restaurant can have an "off" day, but we've always hit it just right. Our server was fabulous, no waiting, and a comfortable atmosphere.

I chose to go to Gibbet Hill for my birthday, after a great function event that they had hosted.
We arrived early at 6:30 for dinner. We were seated in a quiet corner window. (very nice)
After delicious appetizers dinner went downhill. We had more then 25 minutes before the main meals arrived and when they did the salmon dish that I ordered was inedible.
My plate was so hot I couldn't touch it and my only bite was very dry and crunchy.
It sat under the heat plate for a very long time.
The two steaks we ordered were cooked to order.
BUT one of them had been cut a few times to check it (making it cook differently each cut) so it had undercooked and overcooked parts.
They did offer to re-cook the salmon. But considering the time and lack of care in the kitchen over two meals out of three at our table...we decided to pass.
After quietly mentioning the salmon and returning to the kitchen, we HARDLY saw our waitperson again. (empty water glasses for the entire rest of the meal) and only came to deliver check.
Very bad customer service.
This made my birthday celebration a horrible experience. We couldn't wait to leave (since we didn't see our server except to deliver bill). We were very uncomfortable being there with our plates, ready to leave and empty water glasses. (they were filled before we complained two times.)
Horrible that a kitchen staffer/chef would allow an overcooked meal (crunchy dry salmon on a extremely hot plate!!) and a cut up steak to make it to a customer.
I do not recommend this restaurant! Sloppy kitchen and waitstaff that abandons tables... Spend your money someplace else.

Great atmosphere. Lovely rolling hills surrounding the barn. Wonderful homemade soups and breads. A bit expensive, but worth the price. I'll go back.

Great atmosphere in a converted barn, with beautiful views of the hillside, even on a rainy night. We went on a Saturday, early reservation at 5:30. When we left at 7:15 the waiting area was packed, so I am sure they were waiting for our table but we never felt like we were were being hurried out. We started with an appetizer of mussels which were excellent. Both had side caesar salads, also very good. My wife had a bone in sirloin and I the bone in rib eye. Both were cooked as ordered, medium rare and very flavorful, try a bite before you start loading on the salt and pepper, as they are not needed. Side dishes served were also very good. Prices for appetizers and salads were very reasonable, beef entrees were above average in price but worth every cent, quality and flavor were superb. No room for dessert so no comments in that area. We will definitely go again.
