Where else can you take a full dinner into a movie theater? We visit several times a year and are seldom disappointed. Considering the seasonal location in the shadow of two great ski areas, BP does a wonderful job in this tiny town. We saw one of the best restaurateurs in the Mad River Valley eating here. You've got to... More

Small with booths with very good food and not too noisy. We did not go to the movie but there was a very good jazz trio. I had the chile which was very tasty and not too hot and my husband reported that his BLT was very tasty.

My boyfriend and I came here last year to a wonderfully prepared menu and a great experience so we decided to come again for our anniversary this summer. We saw a good movie and sat down afterwards to a good meal which we expected would be similar to our previous visit. Clearly the menu has been dumbed down and I... More

Check and double check the times of the movies. I checked online five days ago, again the night before we went, and one last time on Sunday when we were going. The time of the movie on Sunday changed from 5 to 7:30. I was worried and called as the website had three different times listed for the movie.The phone... More

I've reviewed the restaurant in the separate listing under "Restaurants" (hint, hint). We took the kids to see a movie and it was a great experience. Popcorn (see title) is outstanding. Theaters are very laid back (comfy chairs and sofas) and you can bring a grown-up beverage in with you.

We go to the Big Picture quite often and it is always consistent, though slow. it is also great to be able to attend the movies and have drinks and food that you can bring in with you. They even have couches in one of the theaters.

Excellent Autumn salad. Server copied the ingredients for me but mine was not as good. Small but would be worth a wait. Very friendly, made me feel like a local.

The food and service was great. We liked the healthy choice options on the menu, and there were some good beer choices as well. We arrived at our B&B later in the evening. The innkeeper suggested this restaurant, and we were pleased with it.

We had brunch here and the food arrived rather quickly however my Avocado BLT arrived without avocado? Also portions on my husbands plate were really small. We were given small glasses of water at the start and never offered refills until after he took our empty plates. Oh well!
