The Rusty Hammer has been serving great food in a friendly relaxed atmosphere for over 30 years. Although we are known for our "wimpy" burgers, we also have a full menu of sandwiches, soups, salads and house specialties. More importantly, The Rusty Hammer is a great place to watch a game, socialize or just kick back! It is a favorite for locals who are cared for by long-term staff. In 2003 & 2004, we were voted the Region's #1 Casual Restaurant. In addition, we have won Best Hamburger in NH twice!
If you're short on time and can't join us for a meal, we offer our full menu for takeout.
