Restaurants in Jackson-North Conway area.

I will be in the area shortly and understand that getting restaurants can be crowded and reservations required. Any thoughts on places for good food. Looking for casual dining.
Also any idea of some local shops which might be worth looking into on those rainy days.

I liked the Thompson House Eatery on Route 16 in Jackson.

Had two dinners there - good food, nice atmosphere (old Victorian House) and nice service. I was there 2 years ago.

Jackson is a tiny village but there were a couple of galleries that were nice. North Conway has many shops of the usual tourist variety, and some galleries as well. The Scenic Railway station has a small museum/display of interest.

For casual dining we like SAALT in Gorham (about a 20 min drive), the Shannon Door Pub (great pizza), Shovel Handle Pub, the Moat (brewery) and Delany's (great onion rings & sushi). Mae Kelly's has a great outdoor deck with great foliage views (we like the steak tip salad there).

Make sure you stop in Jackson for the 26th annual "Return of the Pumpkin People" - over 100 businesses participating this year in N. Conway, Bartlett & Jackson - it started as a Jackson event so most are in that area - really creative stuff this year! Displays out until Oct 20th. My husband & I (and a few other board members) did the display at the Jackson Historical Society & Museum of White Mountain Art. It is called Shapleigh From the Inside Out to go along with our FREE current exhibit of Shapleigh paintings - he used to sit inside barns and paint the view of the mountains and always included many of the same elements like yellow hats, pumpkins, cats and chickens. Our pumpkin display won 1st place this year! Not sure if you can see it, but here is a link to a photo on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater
