If you're visiting the Vermont Lakes Region in the vicinity if Lakes St. Catherine, Bomoseen, Sunrise, Sunset, Beebe, or Hortonia you don;t want to miss eating at the Iron Lantern on Rt 4A in Bomoseen, VT.

Been to the restaurant several times and have always had an excellent meal. The salad bar and soup and bread is wonderful. The scallops are absolutely delicious. Pretty restaurant with accommodating staff. Big portions of chicken parm. House scampi with artichokes and shrimp was yummy, good flavors

Was recommended by other restaurant owner. Food selection, portion and taste was very good. Decent size salad bar and selection. Attentive service. Well priced. Just off Rt 4. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

One of these days I'll learn to order the salad bar and be satisfied. The entire are quite good, but once you've torn through the salad bar, the soup, and all the specialty salads, you don't have room! The steaks are very good, and the penne with vodka was great.

I'm a big fan of "old-fashioned", so to me, the place is charming. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The food is not up to par, though. Although the shrimp on the salad bar should be a big plus, it was strange. Rather water-logged and with a sort of grainy texture. I'm not sure what's up with that. The... More

Draft beer and drinks well prepared and the salad bar was well stocked with all fresh items. Our dineer was delivered in a timely fashion and the waitstaff was very attentive and freindly (what more could you ask for). Just to nit-pick with one small piece of feedback - the salad tong look like they could use to be washed... More

while visiting our grandson at college during family weekend we discovered this wonderful little restaurant. We had done one of the chains night before and was not looking forward to another. The salad bar alone was worth it. We were a party of eleven with a great variety of meals and no complaints We will go back on future visits.

My husband and I were referred to this restaurant. We got in and asked for a bottle of wine. We were told they could not give us a bottle of wine, only by the glass. We asked for a shrimp cocktail and were told that we could not have that, it was on the buffet and we had to get... More

I remember you coming in the door menu in hand saying how great everything looked. No where on our menu does it indicated that we serve shrimp cocktail as we do served peel and eat shrimp on the salad bar. The menu also clearly indicates that soup, salad and bread bar comes with all meals so if you don't do... More
