Went on a Saturday night. Ordered Prime rib cooked to medium. Well what came out of the kitchen was undercooked under spiced slice of meat that I could not eat. Forget sending it back because the service was soooo slow. However the salad bar couldn't been better. Maybe will try again. Possibly hit it on a bad night

Food is always well prepared, and they have a rotating specials list that always has a unique fish dish. The portions are huge, and the salad bar is quite extensive. The problem is that the desserts are all homemade; so plan on rolling your stuffed self out of there if you don't have discipline. Service is always on point; the... More

I went there with my family and parents. The dining room was dated and the food was ok at best. Some of the entrees we got were better than others. My mother liked her ribeye, but my wife's salmon was not good. My mussels had most of the shells broken and I had to pick them out of my linguini.... More

I've been to the Tributary many times while visiting my inlaws. The food is consistently good however this last visit was uncomfortably HOT. Evidently the HVAC had recently been updated and couldn't keep up. While my family and I were hot, I felt worse for the staff who had to work through such comfortable conditions.

Went to CT to visit my son and Daughter-in-law while her daughter and son were in town. Was very happy to go to a restaurant with them that was family friendly. they gave us a highchair and a booth. The booth gave us a place for the baby 6 months to lay down when he got tired. The food was... More

Eaten here many times. We always seem to get the co-owner as a waitress. She sucks. The food is constantly good. Not great, but good. Probably not worth the price unless you have a coupon.

First off, the food was outstanding (we had roast duck and an amazing salad bar- and they have lobster fests in the summer as well), but the service was out of sight and unbelievably good! And I mean everyone we met was genuinely concerned about us having the best dining experience you could imagine. AND we did! Definitely a go... More

Excellent prime rib, salad bar, and and mashed potatoes. Unpretentious, somewhat faded, very comfortable atmosphere. The restaurant is right on the Mad River, but you wouldn't know it from inside the dining room.

I've heard quite a few good reviews about the food this restaurant, so we finally stopped in. As soon as we walked in the door, I hesitated. Dumpy, dirty, a pile of chairs where coats would normally be hung. The harried hostess didn't smile, didn't greet us, basically barked "Do you have a reservation?" But she did seat us. The... More
