BEWARE!! I called the Iron Lantern in Castleton, VT to make a reservation for a dinner for my in-laws to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary over a month before the event. When I called to check on the reservation, they said they never wrote it down! The woman I spoke to even implied that I might be lying about the... More

A stunning, extensive and fresh salad bar with homemade soup. I sometimes make my meal soup and salad. However they have a broad and varied standard menu with unique and delicious specials. Our favorite Friday night dining spot. Try it and I know you will be back.

Generous servings, reasonable prices. I enjoyed the seafood casserole with a brie appetizer. My husband had surf & turf - and said it was perfect. We lingered over dinner for at least 90 minutes and never felt rushed.

The parking lot was full so we figured it must have something! Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. She Took time to explain menu and salad bar. The salad bar... More

Not out first visit to Iron Lantern, and certainly not our last. I recall this restaurant pre-salad bar, and, although some portion and selection restructuring has occurred following the addition of the (world's best) salad bar, this is still a great restaurant to go to, again and again. Wait staff is always friendly, attentive, and courteous, even when we showed... More

We tried a couple of times to call for pricing information for a wedding rehearsal dinner being planned from out of state - when I called today to speak to the manager to verify the menu/prices and confirmation - I was told by David that I had 30 seconds - I offered to call back later but he said no...
