Nice local hang out with good food

The Saxtons River Inn gives you an authentic feeling of a New England hotel and restaurant. There is a dining room area and a bar area with a fire place, which is quite cosy and where the local meets. The food is good, you can find local beers and the service is friendly.

Our first dinner in Saxton's River was at the Inn for a family reunion. There were 12 of us and the inn accommodated us quite nicely. The food was very good as were the drinks and wine. I would recommend the Inn for dinner any time.

Sit on the porch of this pretty inn with a gin and tonic and experience the quiet pleasure of an idyllic small town. Situated on Main Street, you'll find that cars occasionally roll past, but they never whiz. Take a break--especially gorgeous during fall foliage!

The food was amazing! They have hired a new chef sometime in the last few months and the difference was incredible. The fish and chips were some of the best I have ever had. House made cole slaw and tarter sauce just put it over the top.

Not closed or location error but needs to be reported for accuracy - TRIP ADVISOR STAFF: It's "Saxtons River Inn" the t is missing - should be spelled the same as the town it's in. Saxtons River, VT 05154 thanks!

After a long day, it is so relaxing to sit and enjoy a glass of wine with a salad and fresh bread that you can dip in olive oil with garlic, and maybe have a bowl of soup, on either the front porch, the back porch, or the bar or the dining room. The atmosphere is calm and friendly. I... More

Large victorian/historical inn within a beautiful small town Vermont location. The dining room is clean, neat, the menu offers a nightly theme/special, with something for everyone. Small bar area is relaxing with large screen TV for sports watching. Would definitely return.

Met a friend who suggested we go to the Inn for dinner. She had been there before, and I had not. When I got there she already had an appetizer in front of her. Looked like half of a baguette with artichoke hearts, cheese and sardines on top of it. The whole thing fell apart as she ate it and... More

went for special occasion - birthday and was a little disappointed but rather pleased at the same time. odd, but OK. Dinners don't stand out as impressive by any means but fine and the price is what I'd expect. No big hurry to ever go back there, so didn't make that much of an impression.

We stopped here on our way back from a day of touring around Woodstock. Found the bar tender super friendly and the pub full of charming locals willing to strike up a conversation. Only intended to have a drink and some local cheese but we decided to take a peek at the menu and liked what we saw. Had a... More
