All outdoor seating on a variety of benches, picnic tables, etc. Parking is often tight, but can park out back. BUT, the food is most awesome. They also serve most awesome vegan and vegetarian options as well.

You won't be disappointed. Great food. Take out or outside seating. We're always waiting for Spring to bring the re-opening of the Grill. We eat here as many times a season as we can. I had to pick a date below but we come here often.

We say this refrain all summer long! The only bad thing about this place is that its seasonal! I'm a vegetarian and even though this is certainly a meat-centric place, they have many veggie options including tempeh wraps. It's such a lovely place to meet friends and eat outside (or inside) looking out over the retreat meadows as the sun... More

Food is always great, byob, if you want a beer with your food. Outdoor and (seasonal) inside seating. Large menu, something for everyone, and the food is worth the lines. Parking can be an issue.

We eat here at least a couple times a month when we have to stay in town between work and evening activity. It is relatively quick, always tasty, and the ingredients are fresh and creatively assembled. The staff is really friendly, and the indoor pavilion is great for those chilly evenings. I really love the Killer Catfish!

This is a regular place for us in the summer and fall (they close at the end of October). The food is good but if you are a southern, mid-west, or southwest bbq fan this is different. Flavors are good but it may not be exactly what you are used to. Good burritos as well.

Fourth or fifth time this year. Excellent pulled pork, gumbo, sides. Very good ribs. Spectacular outdoor setting especially on a sunny fall day like today. Reasonable prices. We'll be back next season.

My husband and I just returned from a short but amazing fall weekend in VT. I can only review on the what we tried and the beef burnt ends sandwich was one of the best things I have had in a long time. Simply stated it was a mixture of crispy on the outside and tender on the inside chunks... More

Over the years I have heard many wonderful things about this little grill stop. My wife and I swung in for lunch. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich, she had a sausage sandwich. My pulled pork was ok. A little dry but ok. Nothing to rave about at all. Her sausage sandwich was darn near unbearable. I had one... More
