A newer restaurant to the area, we went there for dinner one evening. My husband had the black and blue burger and I opted for the meatloaf wrapped in bacon with a mushroom gravy.

We popped out for breakfast on a Saturday morning around 10 am and chose this because it was close. Got seated right away, but it took a long time to get served for pancakes and an English muffin. It was not crowded, so it was not clear what took so long. Pancakes were good but the homemade sausage was a... More

The Elusive Moose welcomed our large family party and we were treated to some of the best meals we have had recently anywhere. Try the Hand-rolled Gnocchi appetizer with roasted seasonal squash and Braised Duck Leg. It would make an elegant entree. We also tried the Hand-Cut Fries with special sauce, Crispy Chicken Wings, Fried Brussels Sprouts, Seasonal Greens with... More

We went to this restaurant with high hopes based on other TripAdvisor reviews. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is nice, but we found the food inconsistent. Although my wife's squash quiche was very good, the yolks in the poached eggs that came with my hash were boiled SOLID. Also, one of our kid's pancakes were undercooked and was... More

Dear Inconsistent, We are very troubled that you were not satisfied with your meal. When our servers, or Marty and I ask if everything is all right, we do not expect to be placated with a "yes, it's fine" when it isn't. Unlike your review there is more that we can do to enhance your experience than just throw another... More

I have been wanting to eat at the Elusive Moose Pub & Eatery, and finally made it for lunch. We had a fabulous lunch at a good price and friendly service. Yes, I will be back.

This restaurant's ad in the local publications doesn't even come close to doing it justice. The food here is amazing but un-intimidating. Just this past weekend, the quiche of the day was squash, Swiss cheese and smoked bacon--it was perfect. The combination was subtle and perfectly satisfying, especially with the green salad on the side with a perfectly seasoned vinaigrette.... More

While staying in Warren, VT for a week, we tried several good restaurants but enjoyed the food and ambiance at the Elusive Moose so much, we went back for a second dinner. The bacon wrapped meatloaf was excellent the first night, then had their Prime Rib on Saturday. Both were great meals, reasonably priced with talented servers.

This place had quite nice burgers and decent beer. Enough for a nice dinner but not a place you would go an extra mile for.

Lovely restaurant with charm and friendly staff. Great food and drink. Relaxing setting. Ribs were tender and tasty, with more than enough to satisfy any hungry diner.

My husband and I stopped here on a late lunch and sat at the bar. Bartender was nice and put the tv on the ball game we wanted. I had the Reuben which I never get and in concordance with the last review it is Devine! My husband got the triple pig burger add egg which he loved also. Nice... More
