Despite making reservations two weeks in advance, I was ignored while locals were waited upon immediately. Could it be that I was alone? I waited almost 15 minutes before my drink order was taken, and the server forgot to place the order for my second course and contined to ignore me. While that course was comped, I left the restaurant... More

We did a reservation ahead of time for July 2. This is a relatively small restaurant and the waiters passed our table all the time. We seat for 15 minutes and no one came to us. We asked one of the waiters and she said she will send someone. Another 15 minutes past and no one came even to offer... More

Dinner at Max's or in the dining room at the Barnard Inn is well worth the 9-mile picturesque drive if you're in Woodstock. This is Vermont-style comfort food. We both started with drinks (inventive cocktails and a good wine list), followed by generous salads from the garden, and then then a chicken Wienerschnitzel and home-grown vegetables. Nice.

The Inn has been around for quite a while and offers many selections. They also have an addition in the back for an informal type dinner. Service with a smile, very affordable.

Great food and inventive cocktails using vodka from a local distillery. The chowder was delicious and the portions for the main courses were generous. We will be back!

The Barnard Inn offers two dining choices, in the dining room a prix fix dinner and their tavern room menu. We had the prix fix menu and it was absolutely delicious. The presentation and services was excellent. The menu changes every day so if you are not the adventurous type of diner, call ahead and see what they are offering.... More

The people were very friendly, the food was varied and very hearty. Very convenient to our Inn. Easy to get a reservation. Seemed like many local people dine here.

We decided to go with the Tavern as opposed to the more formal dining room, as we were casually dressed. As it turns out we liked the freedom of ordering off of the full menu as opposed to the Prix Fix menu anyway. The selection is really exotic but everybody loved everything we tried. Especially the Cheese plate appetizer, the... More

Had the pleasure of dining in Max's Tavern on Saturday night. From the wait staff to the bartender to the chefs -- everything was great. Enjoyed a pickeled medly of vegetables, rack of lamb and bread pudding. Coupled with an 802 Old Fashioned and glass of wine recommended by the waitress (charming girl). Everything was great (again).
