Consistently Good

If you're looking for excellent, upscale food, but don't want to spend a ton of money (see Middlebury), or don't want to venture to a national chain (see Rutland), Cattails is the place to go. It's located about half-way between the two towns, so it's convenient to both. Until about a year ago... read more

As stated above ! Chef selects his own produce, grows his own herbs, et cetera. Everything I have had there in the past 2+ years has been terrific ! :)

There are lots of options here for dinner and appreciate that they modify the salad I like to make it even better. This is a great place for an informal but tasty dinner.

We stayed at a local B&B and were looking for a reasonable place for dinner. The prices here ranged considerably which was great because we felt like we had choices! I ended up having the fish and chips special with shrimp and my husband had the buffalo chicken mac 'n cheese. We shared and both entrees were excellent! Especially the... More

Staff is friendly but sometimes spread thin. Food is okay, more akin to comfort food than upscale. Menu offering has good variety and their burgers are great. In the summer, they have an outside window where you can purchase ice cream and other treats.

We have been coming to Vermont for more than twenty years, and we just discovered this place. I wish we could go back in time! Friendly service, a wonderfully diverse menu, and delicious food. Lovely dining room; don't let the small appearance from the highway fool you. Casual but special.

We were coming back home to Rutland from a day in Montreal. We were tired and hungry and thinking about what to have for supper. Saw the sign for Cattails and I remembered that a lot of my friends have told me that it's good. First time that I have had shepherds pie in a restaurant. I was happy with... More

We love to go there for breakfast, and we go every Sunday when at home. My husband loves the sausage and biscuits when on special. H also loves the hash omlet because of the fresh hash they make. I love the veggie Benedict. The atmosphere is great and nice to be able to eat on the deck. T wait staff... More
