We had lunch and a beer at the Pot Belly. The food was good and unique and very enjoyable. The atmosphere was pub-style, but comfortable and inviting. The service was fast, and attentive. Our server recommended Switchback Ale which has become my new favorite beer!

We enjoyed our lunch at this restaurant. The staff was very attentive and the lunch portions were large enough that my 22 year old son had leftovers.

We ordered takeout. They were a little picky about where we waited and preferred that we not take up one of the numerous empty tables so we went to the bar. The bartender was great. I would return for a drink and appetizer just because of the bartender. The food was okay. The price was in range for this area... More

No improvement in menu, decor, or service. This place must survive on only first time visitors to the town, as every local or ski home owner with whom we have ever talked about this place agrees to stay away. Time for a change... Rather, time for a complete overhaul!

This is a nice little spot with some outdoor tables but we had to wait 45 minutes after ordering to get our food......and it wasn't even busy! The service itself was adequate at best and so was the food. Do yourself a favor and go down the road to Sam's or Mr. Darcy's.

Not impressed by this place at all. Ordered chicken piccata and got chicken tenders. Gross! The wait staff was the only pleasant thing about this place. $18 for chicken tenders is not reasonable at all. Won't be back.

I am a fussy vegetarian, I will admit. I should have ordered the special salad or veggie salad, but, I ordered the mac and cheese instead. It was advertised as a small plate, and I thought it was a safe choice. I was wrong. The elbow noodles were over cooked, then coated with butter and then topped with cheddar cheese... More

Very slow service. Waited a long time for our appetizer to arrive. Scallops wrapped in prosciutto were very fishy tasting. One of the specials was prime rib so four of us ordered the prime rib and were very disappointed. Had no juice, no flavor. Appeared to have been cooked before and reheated. One of our party ordered the New York... More

We had a wonderful unexpected appetizer of brochette, which we shared. It was smothered in mozzarella cheese. To die for. We also had the queen size prime rib, mashed potato and vegetables. I've had better but it was very tasty. (For the price, $22, it was very good). Generous glasses of wine. Nice size bar area and our waiter, Sam,... More

Restaurant really nice inside. Service was good. French onion soup was good - chicken fingers were good. The scallop appetizer I would not recommend. Over all a decent meal. Might go back if in town but probably try a sandwich or burger.
