This is one of several "upscale" restaurants in the area, and the decor is very nice with pictures of old St. Albans thru-out the premises. Nice separate bar area, cozy rooms withchoice of booth or tables with chairs, etc... Varied menu which you can keep as a souvenir. Food can be hit or miss, but generally good. Service is always...

We usually go there for dinner and we always found what we liked. It's a warm and kind place with very gentle waitresses. Sometimes, you have to wait for 10/15 mins if you don't reserve on time, but apart from this. Steak and burgers are very good. Once they took our favorite appetizer off "Nachos" but luckily enough, they put... More

Had a nice meal here with some excellent drinks and desserts. Our table was a bit close to some other tables but our server was very good. Tasty fries, and the prices were fair.

How to celebrate a great year and a new team member? Lunch at One Fed. All four of us had great meals .. pork sandwich, briquettes, VT burger, etc. The onion rings are great, the vt burger is top notch. Add in a great waitress with attentive, enjoyable service and you get a great experience. Thank you!

Service was crazy disorganized. We were eating in a private room with about 16 people. We all ordered choice of 3 meals. The waitress checked and double checked her order pad and still delivered meals incorrectly. One woman had to wait for her meal to be made while the rest of us ate. Dessert was two choices, but again much... More

I had the chicken with pepper gravy, mashed potatoes and broccoli. Both dishes were good. Another night we shared the wings special, he had a bacon cheeseburger with fries and coleslaw I had the Cod fish... More
