The was a quaint restaurant with excellent food and great service. We enjoyed the rustic atmosphere and old fashioned charm of this historic inn/restaurant. I ordered the Maple Glazed Chicken for dinner and there was not one bite left on my plate. A warm and tasty peach cobbler followed for dessert. I also tried an excellent local brew with my meal called Trout River Rainbow Red. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We will definitely come back.

Bar menu, quite nice, dining room elegant, good food, some inventive dishes, fair prices
Portions on the small side, like one small bread bun but warm. Good wine selection.

What a delicious gem! Enjoyed a beautiful ride through the rolling hills of rural Vermont to the Black Lantern Inn where we were treated to attentive service, food prepped exactly as requested, fantastic flavors, and charming ambiance (a bit of rustic flair with some fantastic local photography on display). The bacon gorgonzola NY Strip steak special was particularly wonderful. The ride home topped off the evening with an incredible sunset magic among farmland and the meandering river ... A perfect way to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary.

The Black Lantern Inn is a quintessential, historic pub/inn with Irish rootedness and is a favorite local gathering place as well as a traditional stay-over destination for tourists. The food is fantastic -- light but satisfying. Chef Matt is conscientious about gluten-free and vegan needs as well as enthusiastic for serving the hearty traditional fare that outdoorsy folks need after skiing, hiking, cycling, gardening, logging, or working in the weather all day. With a formal dining room and cozy pub and an outdoor fire pit and stage area for summer concerts, The Black Lantern is always abuzz with robust conversation and laughter. Very Irish! Very hometown. Don't miss a visit to one of Vermont's real and rural gems.

Classic Vermont / New England a reasonable drive away from Jay. While it's not a clearly kid-centered place, staff was very friendly and good with the kids, and kids meals were the right size. Food was very good, very satisfying.
