Had a great meal and very nice service. Quaint, charming and warm environment. We had the prime rib, meatloaf and the tuna appetizer - all were delicious. Definitely recommend!

Great food, great staff! Perfect place to go after a day of skiing. The tuna tartare is a must. If you have kids it has a kid-friendly room, too.
Jennifer was an excellent server!

Hyde Away has become one of our favorite spots for well-prepared comfort food in a cozy environment. We come up 3/4x a year and always have great experience. The chicken breast is always great (ask for the brussel sprouts as your veggie!) and prime rib on Saturdays is our go-to. First time having the meat loaf this time as it wasn't a Sat and was rich and delicious. The chicken wings (dry rub) is also a must! We always make a reservation about a week out because it gets booked up and busy over the weekends. Always have a table ready with a reservation though. Pretty large menu selection, good cocktails and beer, and great service. This was the second time we had John as our server and he's continued to make it a pleasant experience!

This was our favorite restaurant while visiting Sugarbush and a well deserved 5 stars! Cozy, "homey" atmosphere, amazing service (John was phenomenal both times!), and delicious food & drinks.

Whether you are a couple getting a nice dinner, family with kids, groups, or just looking for a nice bar to grab some drinks, this restaurant/bar has different sections that tailor to the atmosphere you're looking for.

Food recommendations(portions all very generous):
APPS: Tuna tartare-"Award winning" for a reason.
ENTREES: VT Chicken was incredible; juicy, perfectly cooked, & brown butter sauce complemented it well.
Lamb: Very tender & delicious
PUB FARE(2nd dinner): Rueben (not open faced like it is traditionally) and Grilled Cheese were great too. Grilled Cheese was pretty heavy from the thick honey bread, so one recommendation would be to substitute with diff bread. Fries were excellent.
DRINKS: 1st dinner, the red wine recommendation (House cab was sold out, so John let us try 2 others before we ordered a glass)
2nd: Jalapeño Marg- Great but not too much kick; matter of preference how spicy you like
Sip of Sunshine(Double IPA): Favorite local beer, which came recommended.

Highly recommend if you’re in the Sugarbush area!

Thank you Michelle for the detailed review. I'm glad you enjoyed our food and atmosphere and we love to see repeat guests like yourself. The lamb is my favorite dish on the menu - but as you know, lots of other goodies too. See you next time!

friendly atmosphere and very good food from a menu with lots of variety. We had a party of 8 including two children and all the dishes ordered arrived promptly and hit the spot. Our waiter, John, was both friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. I had the penne pasta with shrimps and my wife had the salmon - both were excellent. Prices were reasonable too .
