We have dined at this restaurant with some regularity for over 25 years. The quality of the welcome, ambience, food, bar and service have remained consistently outstanding. The best we have encountered in Vermont - and in many other states.

Have been here many times over the course of 20 years and I can't remember a restaurant that nails their dishes every time. Clemens the bartender has the most ebullient demeanor of any I've had the pleasure of serving me. Shout out to Vinny!

If well behaved I think a great dining experience for younger culinary crowd!
My wife can only eat fish, not shellfish. If we reserve can we expect fish to be available?
