We’ve enjoyed great sunsets from the Junior’s Crush House deck in Gilford, New Hampshire, including this beauty. Junior’s is a distinctly “bar-with-a-kitchen” establishment, versus a restaurant with a bar. There are a few regular tables in the area outside the bar, but also bistro high tops. We definitely recommend sitting on the deck, which overlooks the Mountain View Yacht Club and Saunders Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee.
In the past I have enjoyed Junior’s for some wonderful homemade pasta with sea scallops, which was a special one night. However, I don’t recommend it for fine dining. I find the food to be more hit-or-miss. Junior’s has opted to become more of a BBQ joint, designed for “pub grub.” A couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed the Buffalo chicken tenders, though they are breaded, and thus, a bit on the greasy side. A friend dining with us ordered a beef sandwich that was very heavy on the gristle. The staff immediately took it away and off our bill and let him order something else, for which they also did not charge us. So, they definitely try to make things right and do take care of the customers to encourage us to give them another try.
A few days later my husband and I returned for a late lunch and a glass of wine. My husband tried the chicken tenders again… still rather greasy. I absolutely LOVED the home made potato curls!!!! I had them done with cheese and bacon, which is one of the topping options. Oh, YEAH!!!! I will be back for those beauties again. Junior’s is a good atmosphere for beverages and snacks.
