Great craft brew selection. Buffalo wings, nachos and chopped salad were really tasty! Manager very attentive. Nice crowd.

I ask why, because this place could be a gem and instead it serves mediocre food at best and the staff all seem to hate their jobs! This place needs better management and a new chef pronto!

Had dinner with my daughter while visiting Middlebury College from Colorado. This place was so comfy and the wait staff was great! It was very crowded for a Wednesday night so we sat at the bar and had Poutine - it was amazing! Also had steak and fries and reuban sandwich which was just as good! If my daughter ends... More

Not cheap, but not outrageous. Great place to eat. We loved the atmosphere, the location, and the food. Mac&cheese, pulled pork sandwich, beer/cheese soup. Outstanding!

For hanging out at the bar or watching sporting events, there is no better place. For high quality food for lunch or dinner, not as much. I know, it's pub fare so you can't expect that much, but it's nice to have some healthy choices that are actually "light." Even our salad was doused with dressing, the soup had too... More

Went here for dinner, and wished that we had found a seat at the bar. It was festive and decorated for the holiday. A couple of TV's but they didn't command all of the attention. We ordered the cheddar ale soup and french onion - both very good. Presentation was good too. I had the Canadian Reuben - it was... More

I could sit here all afternoon. Had a 3pm lunch. The restaurant is quiet, dim, fantastic music. The green eyes cocktail did not disappoint, neither did the kale Caesar salad and Cabot soup. $29 for my 3 items but worth it. The service was great.

Had an okay meal here but was a bit underwhelmed. They claimed to have the best mac and cheese in VT which was definitely false, but burgers were pretty good.

So I spied poutine on the menu and told my friend, "Hey, have you had poutine? It's french fries, gravy and cheese curds. What could go wrong with that?" So I poured out two lines of Lipitor on the table top and began to snort them, much to the chagrin of the locals. The poutine was fine. Unfortunately, the mac... More

My wife had soup and salad. She had to ask for bread and it took 15 minutes to be served. My hamburger was good. But service was slow overall. I think they were short of staff.
