We ate here on the three nights we were staying at the Inn. We booked each night in advance, which I feel in busy times is advisable. Each night we had very different choices ranging from the Tavern menu of Caesar salad and crab cakes,...More

Pretzel rolls with cheese sauce were amazing. Vichyssoise was too thick and and bland. Wine by the glass prices are outrageous. Waitress did not know what a Port Wine was? Service staff wearing jeans when I’m paying $20 for a glass of wine?

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.
