Get a seat at the bar and order from the tavern menu. Great burgers and cocktails. The atmosphere is quaint but the prices are pretty high, but you are at a luxury resort. For lunch try the Equinox Country Club instead.

We appreciate your feedback. The Prime Burger is most definitely a guest favorite in the Marsh Tavern. The Dormy Grill is also a great place to enjoy lunch during these warmer months with a beautiful view of the golf course!

When you are in Manchester - whether staying at the Equinox or not - a visit to the Marsh Tavern is a must. Lunch or late afternoon is my favorite. It's warm and inviting with real Vermont comfort food.

The historic Marsh Tavern was the first building erected on the site of what is today the expansive Equinox resort. One of the first lodging houses in Vermont, its history predates the Revolutionary War. Today it is home to a celebrated restaurant and meeting place. Renowned for its hearty New England fare, patrons can enjoy a delicious lunch and the finest regional dinner cuisine. And for good fun, spend a while in the Tavern Lounge for cocktails, a tasty menu and outdoor seating for wine and spirits. Open daily.
