Good Food Served Here!

We stopped at Pot Belly while driving through Ludlow VT at lunchtime. It is an attractive place with a nice menu and good service. We had a dog with us and chose to eat out on the very pleasant terrace.

The nacho's are the best. Ken was our waiter, and he was as good as the nacho's. NO surprise when the check came. We'll be back... with the family. Hope Ken will be our waiter.

Stopped for lunch with Mom - food was okay, nothing special, beer was nice and cold. Service (Emily) was very attentive and fast. Access was challenging as there are 3-4 steep steps making it difficult for my elderly Mom.

Great food and beer, friendly staff, cozy environment. We would highly recommend coming as it was a highlight of our ski trip this past winter. The prices were reasonable. We would definitely go back.

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

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!

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.
