Crab cakes were great! I wish there were two instead of one. I also wish it had a sauce even though they were very good without it. Had the rib-eye steak for dinner. The steak was served on top of the vegetables and mashed potatoes, I prefer them each to have their own spot on my place. Steak itself did... More

1846 Tavern and Restaurant was a last minute choice for dinner and it was well worth it. Since we brought our dog we didn't want to leave him in the hotel so I asked if 1846 could do a take-out order. I don't think they normally do take-out but they accommodated us anyways, which I greatly appreciated. We ordered crab... More

Enjoyed a delicious meal tonight before beginning the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge. Food was very nicely presented , not typical bar food. We tried shepherds pie and chicken parm. Apple pie a la mode was excellent with just the right amount of spices.

We decided to eat here after receiving our first clue on the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge. Dinner on the patio was very nice. Food was great. We finished the challenge the next day with a couple of beers in the bar. I would definitely return and recommend.

The food is good American choice, one or two of the bar/wait staff are a little scary, but the Owners are very helpful and welcoming

The drinks were average, but the live entertainment was good and we had a nice time listening and singing with the lobe guitar player. Not a bad way to spend an evening out.

We stayed at West Dover Inn so we were lucky enough to enjoy both a dinner and a breakfast! Our dinner was delicious, I had the special: Massachusetts striped bass with corn risotto and tomato basil salad, my boyfriend had a burger made with local beef and Vermont cheddar and hand cut french fries. Everything about both of our meals... More

You wouldn't necessarily expect to have such a good meal in a seasonal restaurant that looks like this. But, the burger and salmon burger were both quite tasty, as was the large kid sized portion of 3 cheese mac and cheese. We were there for an early dinner and the place was quiet, but by the time we finished, the... More
