Lunch Stop Surprise

A late April Sunday, while driving through Vermont we decided to stop at the Pot Belly for a quick lunch. A great surprise with some wonderful selection for beers and the specials of the day were hard to choose from. Reasonable prices, great service and clean rest rooms!

I cannot say enough about how delighted I was with my meal today. I hesitatingly ordered the Shrimp Scampi entree special because most restaurants do not know how to make this dish. I was pleasantly surprised, it was superb! The abundant shrimp, fresh garlic and tomatoes, perfectly cooked bow tie pasta and delicate sauce knocked the socks off of my... More

Four of us ordered four different meals and two wanted to send it back to the kitchen (we didn't, but...). Fish fillet was NOT fresh or properly prepared. Mediocre at best.

We stopped in for drinks. The bar was just ok. The selection of beer, wine and spirits was average. The bartender was without experience and the drinks were small. We were totally unimpressed and did not stop by there again during our visit to Ludlow. One of the waiters was rude when I was looking for the restrooms. There were... More

Great, long standing establishment. Many post ski dinners here. The menu is not your average fair with many unique offerings. My Salmon was delicious. It can get crowded during ski season on weekends - get there before 6p or after 8:30p. There is live music at times.

Waited 40 minutes for table. After we sat down we ordered dinner and did not receive any food for 80 minutes. So it was 2 hours from the time we entered until any food was served. Never again. Average bar food but can't handle Monday night crowd.

PBP is a very busy place for the after ski crowd and for folks arriving Friday night.. get a quick and delicious dinner... Grab a chair at the bar or the high tables and enjoy the SPORT TV and the Bartender, Bill. Their SMALL PLATES and Weekly Specials are GREAT CHOICES. Food is freshly cooked and will tantalize the tender... More

We sat at the bar and chatted with Bill on our visit. He was friendly and fun! We ordered the Gumbo and the macaroni and cheese. They were both delicious! Probably the best mac-n-cheese we've had. The chef was very nice as well. He came out and checked on us to make sure we enjoyed our food. Great times, definitely... More
