An Award Winning menu, and friendly service make this a must go for classic dining. A little costly, but really worth it. Food is very regional-oriented.

We were actually seated in the Tavern. We were a party of 6, it took one hour and 15 minutes for our plates to arrive. I had elk, which I ordered rare, received two small slices medium and one slice which was actually from another piece of meat, was more then well done! It looked like a leftover piece of... More

We recently went to the Mountain Top Inn for a birthday party. The dining room had amazing views of the mountains and was very rustic/classy. The service was also pretty good even with the large group of people we had in our party. The drinks were average, though cocktails were a bit spendy . Good beer on tap, though I... More

Upon arrival we were asked to sit in the "game room" section of the dining area with a limited view of the lake despite the fact that 90% of the restaurant with a panoramic view was open. The hostess seemed very annoyed when we asked to change locations prior to being seated. Enter our waitress who did not even welcome... More

The restaurant is in the main building of the inn and is decorated in a hunting lodge like theme. The views of the Green Mountains and lakes from the restaurant are breathtaking. For appetizers, our party had the crab cakes and the cheese platter, both of which were perfectly presented and delicious. For our main course, our party had the... More

Planned our anniversary dinner well in advance at this Mountain Top resort near Killington Mountain in the midst of Vermont's Green Mountains. With outdoor seating on a gorgeous evening, overlooking a lake, with a panoramic view of surrounding mountains, dining among diverse family groups and couples, plus hummingbirds zipping all about, we couldn't have asked for a more romantic setting....
