Great setting and great food.

We love Bennington station and try to hold out to eat dinner there when driving to Vermont from NJ. The building is historic and reminds you of when people traveled mostly by train. The menu is varied and the special list always contains a few treats. The wait staff are friendly and down to earth... read more

Was looking forward to having a nice meal, and was unpleasantly surprised with the poor service, food quality, and the servers bad attitude!

Overpriced is the first adjective that comes to mind. This is a slightly glorified 99 Restaurant with double the amount on your check at the end of the evening. I guess they need to jack up the entree prices to cover those deep hits at the unlimited salad bar. We were greeted, if you can call it that, by a... More

Nice historic building in Bennington. We were seated in the main dining room, which could be a bit loud at times due to the super high ceilings. There were 2 other sections which looked more intimate and perhaps a bit quieter- just something to note if you're going for a special occasion. The salad bar was good with a basic... More

This was our selection for an evening meal for our one-night stay in the area. This is an historic site, in an original building-train buffs and history aficionados will appreciate the architecture and how well it has been preserved. We were seated in the portion of the restaurant that was the former entry to the station (now glassed in). Our... More

We ate here the first night. The steak was excellent. The service was exceptional. We would definitely go there again should we go back to Bennington.

We had to let staff know that the salad bar needed replenishing. My scrod was dry and overloaded with breading. Presentation was nice and servings were plentiful.

Stopped here for lunch driving through. Our waiter was great with recommendations actually telling us about items he liked on the menu. The Clam Chowder and Sante Fe Soup were great as well as the Croque Monsieur. Awesome atmosphere in the front room surrounded by glass and history.

This place has so much interesting history and the photos are all around the restaurant walls. The meal was superb and plentiful. We chose the local red wine and it was absolutely one of the best Reds we have ever tasted. The waitress was a little stern and when we asked her about the wine she knew nothing about it... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time. The food was delicious and great portions. We had some mussels and they were great as well. They had live music last night which was fun.
