We only had breakfast

I cannot speak to other meals, but the breakfast buffet was excellent. It was complimentary with the room, and included everything you'd expect in a breakfast buffet: eggs, pancakes, French toast, potatoes, meat, cereal, breads and toast with jam, juice and coffee.

Part of the unique Wilburton Inn scene, is their Wednesday Night Farm Dinner, a weekly al-fresco farm to table vegetarian buffet provided by Earth, Sky and Time Community Farm. A great variety of delicious gourmet dishes are served outdoors with seating on the terraces and lawns of this lovely historic estate. Breathtaking views of the Green Mountains of Vermont. Live...

After hearing mixed reviews, we decided to give the restaurant a try. We should of known something was wrong when there was only one other table there for dinner at 7:00 on a Friday nite. The evening started out by them giving us a corner table in a cold room next to the windows. The owner came to the table... More

I was there for a business dinner in a private room for about 18. the service was excellent and the food was great. Delicious shrimp cocktail, beef entrée and the chocolate lava cake was the best part.

We recently ate here with family for our grandfathers birthday. He had mentioned the inn several times so we decided to surprise him! The setting is beautiful, terrace area has a beautiful view and one of the staff took a couple group photo for us before dinner. Dinner service is where they really lacked, maybe this was an off night?... More

These guests came to celebrate a 90 birthday. I think the birthday man had a fine time and I hope he will celebrate 91 with us. Our regular server and bartender both called in sick on Friday so the dining room staff was not as professional as they should have been. I was not pleased with the timing of the... More

I had the best Rack of Lamb that i ever had. The waiter was very nice. The restaurant is full of 1920's original horse racing prints. Very interesting.

It is the most amazing site ever, driving up a long rock wall along a cliff with mountain views every where. The food was a buffet the night we went and it was only OK. Not many people and they needed to upgrade the tables, settings etc. which they may have done since.

Unfortunately this restaurant is very hit or miss with waiters not having much kowledge but trying to be both waiters and barternders. The waiter could not make a martini to save his life. The lamb was way overcooked. The manager owner was very nice and greeted and talked with patrons.

Just stayed at the Wilburton Inn last week. Room was very clean and comfortable.The inn gives you an esoteric feeling of nostalgia from the 1920's. Phenomenal art throughout the building. The Innkeeper's , Albert and Georgette are delightful hosts. Chef Didier should be ranked as one of the best chefs in the state of Vermont. I have been dreaming about... More
