Dover Forge epitomizes a Vermont country restaurant and it's only 2 miles from Mt. Snow. With charming decor, great atmosphere, fireplace, lots of choice on both the special and regular menu and a kids menu , this place is perfect for families if you eat on the early side and nice for couples a little later in the evening. We... More

This place has it all - great food, great ambiance, heart-felt service, and good prices. If you are looking for a genuine local restaurant with a Vermont feel, and a creative but local menu, this is it. We dined here twice on our recent ski trip and will definitely be visiting again. The first night, we had sirloin tips as... More

Delicious food, friendly staff and great decor. We had pulled pork and lamb Shepard's pie both were outstanding. Also, they make their own hot sauce - the Guava Lava is HOT, yet very flavorful. I bought a bottle I liked it so much.

Met friends for dinner and started with cocktails at bar. Prompt and friendly service from Valerie - she really did a wonderful job! Interesting drink specials - try the blood orange cosmo - and priced right. Ribs , meat loaf, pulled pork and NY Strip steak were all tasty. Fun place for friends and family. Variety of seating options and... More

Alan meet us at the door with hospitality and warmth. The meatloaf was off the charts along with the Sheppards pie. Vermont sundae finished off the fabulous meal especially the ginger snap ice cream! 5 stars!

I frequent Mt Snow and other ski resorts up here in Vermont all winter. Dover Forge by far has the best food and you won't pay through the nose for it. Everything else around here is a dive... and the only other nice restaurant is a fortune. The food here is spectacular and the staff is so friendly! Try their... More

We are so happy we found this restaurant and bar. We arrived on 12/17/16 for a late dinner after a day of skiing. The full menu was offered until 11pm. Since it was 10pm when we arrived, we ate on the bar side that also has pool tables, table tennis, and foosball. The service was amazing. Our waiter answered questions... More

We ate there on 12/17/16, and the food and service were very good. The Butternut Squash soup was the best I have ever tasted. The ambiance is steeped in Vermont history with a quaint fireplace burning real wood. After dinner, we went to their pub that is located on the other side of the restaurant, where we played a game...

First time going there, and the service was amazing. The food here is the best in this area. If you are going to this restaurant, order something like chicken, something that is smoked, as that is what they do best. Everything else other than the smoked meals is pretty average. The Caesar salad is kale, not just lettuce, so be... More

Main dining room was closed so ate in the bar area. Draft beer was cold and delicious, they take good care of the beer system. The smoked chicken and ribs fell off the bones with some delicious spices. The chicken pot pie was golden brown and home made. Mac and cheese perfect with a good slaw. All their prices are... More
