We were in Middlebury with a group of about 10 people and planned to have lunch but found our restaurant didnt serve lunch. We found Two Brothers and it was great. I had the reuben sandwich ( on pretzel bread), it was really good. They have a nice beer selection with most local breweries represented. I had the Drop-in Supernova... More

We stopped in for dinner, and ate outside. The service was very slow, the food was average. Overall it was fine, and a nice evening, nothing special, probably would try something different the next time we are in Middlebury.

Needed a pit stop and somefood. Went with the special and a couple of local beers. Outstanding craft beers and very unique, tasty foods. Neat ambiance in the pub. I strongly recommend a stop!

Great restaurant in the middle of town. Very friendly staff (especially Zoe) very good food, and a nice ambiance overall. Kudos to their being accommodating. Their kitchen closed at 10, and realizing we'd not make it in time, they allowed us to place a dine-in order over the phone, so that we could eat. THANK YOU!!! As an added bonus,... More

If something is on the menu as a special, then it should be available. If its sold out then that's understandable, but when that the same item is still not available the following week...that's a problem. Far too often this Establishment is short of the very thing it advertises...poor management or Bait and Switch...

Me and my family went here not long ago for a bite to eat. As soon as we walked in we were blown away by the atmosphere, the smells of food, and how nice and prompt service was. Once we were seated the host gave us some much needed water, and then more water by our server who was over... More

Over a long corporate career I have had the opportunity to travel extensively and eat at a very broad range of dining establishments. I can unreservedly say that Two Brothers Tavern is a rare find; a place that embodies local character but still puts a menu together that would appeal to a broad range of tastes. To call it a...
