We stayed at the Middlebury Inn, so this restaurant on the premises was our first stop for dinner. I had the stir fry, which was very bland and overcooked. We later had a burger, which again was not very exciting. I did see some diners...More

I opted for the breakfast buffet, which was of good quality and selection. I really appreciated the mini waffles, real maple syrup, and the mini Danish. Yogurt was a local product and fresh fruit, although not in season here, was ripe and tasty. Staff was...More

We had 2 meals at the Tavern. One on the Veranda featuring the Tuesday Menu. The second in the Tavern with a full menu! The food was excellent! Very well prepared! My husband was thrilled to find duck on the menu!

Stopped at Morgan's for lunch. The room is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We were immediately seated at a lovely spot by the window. Service was very good - friendly and timely. We had the clam chowder and French onion soup. Both were exceptional. We...More

Over the years we have enjoyed dining at Morgans. Yesterday's lunch was atypical, but since we only come down once or twice a year, this might be the new normal. In any case, ordering a soup and salad combo proved to be a big waste...More
