The menu here is fantastic. Ate at the bar and loved Rob the bartender. He was very personable, informative, and attentive. The grounds are beautiful, especially for a summer's night. Outside dining too. I had scallops which were extremely good. Hubby had steak that was cooked to perfection. Would definitely recommend.

My wife took me there, having been there before. We did the Tavern, and had a great meal. The Couch Potatoes were a great comfort food, and the lobster rolls were great! They have a great selection of local beer. Played Foosball and some tunes on the juke box as well. A very mixed crowd as to age, but most... More

We actually ate at the Tavern side if the Perfect Wife, called The Other Woman Tavern. My wife and I both ordered the Parmesan Crusted Scallops and we were not disappointed. The scallops were fresh, sweet and just about melted in our mouths. Our server was very attentive and friendly. The also have an extensive craft beer list to choose... More

This is a review for the more casual upstairs establishment, The Other Woman. We popped in for dinner after a day of skiing at Stratton. The beer selection was large and tasty. Believe I had a Single Chair Ale, one of my favorites. I like that despite being the second floor of a nice restaurant, the decor is laid back... More

The food was excellent and the chef, Amy Chamberland stopped at our table, chatted with us and sent out two amazing appetizers for us to sample. It was the highlight of our trip to Manchester Vermont.

This has got to be the best restaurant in New England. It is by far my favorite restaurant. The chef is amazing and will cater to whatever you want to eat. I had crispy duck there once and it was the best duck I have ever had. Their crème brulee is out of this world. I eat at this restaurant... More

We recently stopped in for cocktails on our way through town. We had already eaten lunch but after checking out the menu, we ate again. Great selection of appetizers and entrees. I especially loved the eggplant fries.

Our guide at Timberquest pointed us here. We went to the Tavern and had a great dinner. My wife had the Howling Wolf and loved it. I tried it too, great flavors. I had the wild salmon and that was equally good. Nice atmosphere on the patio that evening. The kitchen manager, Logan, checked in on us and wait staff... More

One of the best restaurants we have been to. The service was great (thank you Lindsay) and the food was wonderful..... Our compliments to chef/owner Amy! Wish we could have said that to you in person! The building and grounds were absolutely beautiful.

Vacationed in stratton, vt. Excellent meal. All dishes and appetizers were amazing. The tuna was cooked perfectly. This restaurant would do great in nyc. Steaks were delicious and also cooked to perfection. You can't miss at this one.
