Within five minutes driving from our summer residence, this has been and still is our "default" eating place in Quechee. Nothing pretentious but its Adirondack style ambiance makes it a comfortable place, for us mostly over lunch. Yes, as some say some areas could benefit from an updated look but then it would no longer be the same. While we... More

I have known this restaurant for over 15 years, when it was Firestones. It used to have an all right menu, decent drinks and a lively bar scene. However, throughout the years, it became known locally for its filth as much as anything. Slowly, locals stopped going and it relied on the tourist trade. It seems even they have gotten... More

So my husband and I decided to try this place for lunch even though people had told us the night before that Shepard's Pie Restaurant was way better (see my review on that one). The outside does look a bit tired but the inside really wasn't bad at all. Couple outdated things but mostly furniture made out of tree limbs,... More

We sat at the bar. I would agree with another reviewer that the place needs an overhaul yet the food was really excellent. We had a beautiful chicken and beef dish respectively and both were as good as any downtown Boston restaurant. Local kids at the bar with not enough to do dampened the ambience but we would give it... More

Our entire group enjoyed the food here. The drink menu and beer selection gave us a lot to think about and the server was quite helpful in explaining it all. We sat on the patio, which was quite pleasant. When the server was busy, other staff stepped in to make sure we had what we needed. Overall, a good experience.

We ate here after a day on the river. The service was good as was the food. Two in our party ordered pizza, it was outstanding!

This has become a favorite local restaurant of mine. 2014 has brought a new and very talented chef to the kitchen who sources as much as he can locally, including pastured meats. I've gone several times this year and each time the food has been really wonderful. We like the "farm to table" approach when we eat out and this... More

Easy access; light fresh food, service was good but slow. Salad greens were fresh and crunchy, the vegetable panini was like fresh and well cooked with a nice pesto drezsing

I don't know what the negative reviews are talking about! The new chef is doing an outstanding job, and the restaurant is greatly improved since last year. My husband and I ate there last night; he had a hanger steak and I had roast chicken. Both were outstanding. In addition, service was great and atmosphere is relaxed and cozy. It... More
