My husband, teen daughter and I ate dinner here while visiting the area. We spent an hour before dinner touring the shop and looking at all the beautiful glass pieces and then visiting the glass blowing area downstairs in the mill. The gentlemen creating the pieces were happy to explain their process and answer questions and it was amazing to... More

When we got to the restaurant we had about a ten minute wait so it was fun to walk around and see some of the beautiful pieces on display. My kids had pasta with sauce and shared a calamari from the kids menu. They liked both! The calamari was delicious and made very simply. My husband had the fish cakes... More

Very cool facility with glass blowing/making in the basement and store/restaurant on the main floor. My husband and I grabbed a drink by the bar while we waited for our reservation. In terms of ambiance, the bar uniquely displays a lot of the Simon Pearce glassware and lighting. The drinks were great, though definitely a splurge. In terms of the... More

Stopped for lunch on our way up to Killington. The food and the service was great, the dining room was spectacular, the view is amazing and being able to tour the glass-blowing area to see how these wonderful pieces of glass are made is interesting. The staff was extremely helpful when we wanted to order a set of pendant lamps... More

We celebrated a rehearsal dinner of sorts. We had a small group of 11 and got a table looking out on the water. The food was delicious and service was very, very good. I would heartily recommend this restaurant to any weary traveler looking for a hearty meal at an affordable price.

We have been here before and absolutely loved it! This time it was very disappointing. For starters, we got there early and asked if we could be seated at 6 instead of 6:30. Two separate staff told us that we should get a drink in the bar and wait until 6:30. The host came over and we asked her, and... More

Another weekend in Woodstock and a special dinner at Simon Pearce. The restaurant never disappoints and with the new bar and bright entryway the restaurant is better than ever. Thought the service was a little fast, this weekend, but all in all still a great experience. Coupled with staying at the Jackson House one couldn't ask for more!

We visited the Simon Pearce glassblowing facility and had the opportunity to watch two craftsman work together to fabricate incredibly delicate and intricate wine glasses. The artisans allowed and even initiated conversations as they worked, explaining the various steps and intricacies of creating their masterpieces. Once you see individual items being made, you can better appreciate the value, as observed... More

Recently I took the family 140-mile day trip to visit their factory outlet in Hanover NH and to have lunch at their Quechee VT location. The day trip in winter is gorgeous, as well as other times of the year. The shops are pricey, but the quality is amazing. While waiting for a table, I recommend that you visit the... More
