Birthday dinner

We went to the inn to celebrate a friends birthday and we all had amazing food. I highly recommend the rabbit, if you're into that sort of thing.

The food was top drawer however the service was lackluster. Went for brunch, had the steak and eggs and a farmhouse omelette both were very good. The service however would make me not want to return, a place like shelburne farms is as much about the experience as it is about the food. The staff are unenthusiastic, our waitress in... More

We visited the Inn at Shelburne Farms for dinner twice during our Vermont sojourn. The stunning Tudor, uber vista and specular sunset was as always without peer perked by a highly professional and friendly bar staff and station with a deep wine list. The usually somewhat less memorable cuisine is thankfully on the upswing under a new executive chef. The... More

Highly recommend this place for a visit but the food was not as good as some other local places in Shelburne. Going for the experience of eating in a Vanderbilt home is definitely worth it though. The cratsmanship on the home is great to see! Restaurant is not very accommodating to dietary needs.

Had a great breakfast in a lovely setting. Honestly one of the prettiest places. Food was great. The kids had pancakes which where great and the Eggs Benedict where so good. The service was a little slow but we still would go back. Such a good meal and pretty location.

My "Duo of Beef" and my husband's lamb dish were absolutely delicious, and came right from Shelburne Farms! The view of the lake from the outside dining patio is lovely!

Have had breakfast here many times and also their Sunday night supper a few times. Very reasonable prices in an ideal setting. Very polite and efficient staff. Stroll the gardens and grounds before or after your meal. Bring your camera for some great photo ops.

I was a bit nervous that the Inn Restaurant would feel too stuffy but instead it was a delightful al fresco meal with just the right "farm-to-table" elements. The salad with fresh berries was fabulous and our dinners were small and well done enough to see more bistro and less formal dinner, which was appreciated as it was a hot... More

Went for dinner and was well worth it. One of the very best dinner experiences we have had. We had the trout and the duck and both were fantastic as was the market vegetable appetizer. Reservations are a good idea.

I went to the Inn for breakfast and was not disappointed. the menu is traditional; eggs benedict, omelets, pancakes etc., but the taste is great and the helpings a decent size. Service was excellent also. And to top it all, the dining room or the patio look over lake Champlain.
