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.

Ate lunch in the tavern. Very cool atmosphere, service was perfect. Limited menu but I believe something for everyone. Nice local beer special, which seems rare these days. Great stop, highly recommend.

I've been to the tavern several times in the last couple years with my family, always for lunch. It's been very enjoyable each time. The food has been consistently good, the service super friendly, and the atmosphere is nice. It's a place that is always on our short list of places for lunch when we're in town. I definitely recommend... More

We visited for a late lunch as they were preparing for dinner service. The restaurant offers a "bar side" and dining room options, both of which appeared to be clean and well maintained. The menu had a wide variety of traditional pub food with many unusual seasonal and eclectic options added in. Examples include beer cheese soup, Vermont mac and... More

We had dinner there last night and really liked it. Gourmet level food. As vegetarians we always appreciate some options - especially in a Tavern - and there were several good choices. Try the Risotto it was outstanding!

This is a really great option in Middlebury. Everything that we had was very good. We had a mix of sandwiches, salads, soups and the brussels sprouts. (the brussels sprouts were really, really good). The bar is well stocked, the restaurant very comfortable. Only issue was it was busy, so we delayed our seating so that the kitchen would be... More
