This is a great place to stop when you are walking downtown, they have great food and great social atmosphere for the night time.

This place is fun and had great food - but be aware there is a secret society that meets in the basement, and at least a few of them are always hanging out at the bar.

My hubby and I were visiting my family in Boston and we stopped into the RH for lunch. This had been my hangout back in my old Air Force days when Pease was still an active base. My hubby ordered the BLT/club and he immediately fell in love with this restaurant. It's cozy, friendly and has fantastic food. I ordered the chili dog, which was less than great, (I should have ordered the chix strips) but the atmosphere and experience made my hubby want to move me back to NH, which made it all worthwhile :)

The deserts there are wonderful and the service is ok, but considering the time of year, it was understandable.

I have been to this restaurant quite a few times, and cannot seem to stray from ordering the California Burger. Slapped with a big blob of guacamole right under the gooey melted cheese, this burger is to die for. They tend to be very busy in the tourist season, so the service is a little slow, but nevertheless, a good place to eat. This is the kind of retaurant I would consider to be a pub. You can sit at the bar for a drink, or you can have a big lunch with a side of fries. Portion sizes are pretty large, but still small enough to be able to fit it all. Never any extra on the plate here.

PROS: Great food
CONS: Slow service in tourist season

The Rusty is best known for their burgers and working-class atmosphere - which is fast becoming a rarity with the ever-increasing gentrification in this town...but that's for another review.

Burgers are excellent, and can be substituted with chicken as well. Teriyaki Caesar chicken is good as well.

Not the best place in the world, but a good choice if you want to eat cheap.

The Rusty Hammer has been serving great food in a friendly atmosphere for over 30 years. They are known for their "whimpy" burgers, but have a complete and tasty menu. It is a true local's favorite.
