Great atmosphere / Poor Attitude

Great atmosphere of surroundings food is good as are selection of wines but both very pricey. This used to be a great place to go after skiing but now between $$$$ and the attitudes of staff not worth the aggravation of snootiness from staff

This is where you have your birthday or celebration dinner. Or any other time you want a great meal. Foodie food, and it's superb. I have eaten here a dozen times and never had even a single item that wasn't excellent. Seafood, meats, specials you can choose at will and will be happy. Very comfortable room with great servers.

I went here for as they listed it the "quintessential" Vermont experience on ice. I get there and I park my car. I then find out that I have to walk on the ice and ice and snow to get to a ridiculously SMALL frozen puddle. For rental skates and time on the puddle it cost 20 dollars. They don't... More

Walked in at 8PM tonight (busy holiday weekend) after being turned away by another restaurant nearby. The hostess and the manager were at the front and the place was packed. They said they could squeeze us in somewhere and both ran in different directions trying to find a place for us. Within 10 minutes we were seated. Our waitress was... More

We went to the Hermitage in the middle of October. By the middle to end of October the foliage season is over in Vermont. Therefore, the crowds have ebbed slightly. James and I love a good meal and we were excited to try the Hermitage. BEWARE, we are not residents of VT and as a result used our GPS, we... More

We have been coming to the Hermitage for years and have enjoyed it. It is a bit pricey and until the most recent chef was hired, the food was average at best. The most recent chef has definitely kicked it up. Since our visit was in the summer they were out of several items on the menu, but as the... More

My boyfriend and I recently decided to pop in to the Hermitage while on vacation after having it recommended to us. We only planned on checking it out for dinner later on that evening as we were still in jeans from our day and felt we needed to go to our B&B to change in order to eat in such... More

Very good food for a "19th hole" on a golf course. Salads were fresh, burgers good and very good service. I wouldn't have minded having breakfast there as well.
