Hubby said the chowder was "to die for" ... worth the entire cost of the meal. I had the spinach salad. For a main course, he chose the pork and I chose... More

We happened to book on steak night, my steak was cooked to perfection, and the Red Green Salad which I started with was amazing. The service was just perfect; our wait staff was very attentive without being intrusive, allowing us to have a... More

Super fun gift shop and store. Cozy dining room and outdoor porch in the heart of the Shelburne Historic District. Charlotte Lane offers the finest dinging experience in Shelbipurne for lunch or dinner. Fresh local ingredients deliciously prepared and served. Not to be missed!

Had the great pleasure of dining here last evening and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and that feeling continued throughout the evening. The service was prompt and very professional without overdoing it. The servers clearly worked as a team to ensure every table was well attended to. The meals we ordered were perfectly... More

We ate on the back deck of Charlotte Lane on a beautiful night in early August. We had a short walk over from our beautiful B & B, The Cooper's Inn. We noticed other guests from the inn dining at the restaurant. I started with the mesclun salad with walnuts and apricots (maybe a little too much raspberry dressing on... More
