Elm City is truly one of our favorites. It's also one of the only restaurants that I truly care to hear about the specials. Never let's me down and everything is amazing!

We went on a short trip to New Hampshire and stopped here for lunch in a recommendation from a friend. We were seated right away and despite the amount of people there our service was great. We got spinach and artichoke dip to start, the bagel chips it's served with were delicious! I had a taco salad that was more... More

This was our second visit to Elm City Brewing and we really enjoyed the overall dining experience. It was quite crowded for a Sunday evening, but we were seated in about 30 minutes. The bar was too crowded to grab a beer while we waited too. Anyway, the wait was worth it because the food was delicious and the beer... More

The service is sometimes a bit lacking depending on who your server is. Denene is great so ask for her if you can! The food is always good and the atmosphere is nice. We like to sit in the window side with better lighting but I have been seated in all 3 areas and all were pleasant.

Although this is typical "pub fare," the menu includes a lot of heavy fried foods. The burgers are good, as were our sandwiches, but appetizers and other options were very high calorie and often fried. Just a preference - and not our favorite form of food preparation.

Great place to relax in the summer and eat outside. Service is great and you can't beat the hamburgers here. A beer goes great with your lunch. Wonderful atmosphere. They also have great hot wings.

We visited Elm City Brewing company on a snowy night. Even though lots of people were staying home because of the weather, many were at Elm City. That's always a good sign. People are willing to come out in bad weather for good eats. We started with chicken and sausage appetizer that was REALLY good and REALLY filling. Then on... More

By far my favorite restaurant when traveling to Keene. Love the bar area and their beers are all amazing! Potato pancakes are my go to and are perfect with the Raspberry Wheat beer :)

The burgers and onion blooms are yummy, and they have a good variety of beer. The only problem is, the bar is TINY unless you want to sit away from the main area, and it's always full.

Debbie Rivest, has been the owner and risk taker at this oasis in Keene, NH for 21 yrs. This I learned from beautiful Keene State co-ed Dominique V., a Senior in Health Care Studies. I came to Keene, NH from Stratton Mtn, VT because BANK OF AM. has no presence in Vermont. I needed a new Debit Card. No choice.... More
