“Nice dining room and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Shore Acres is one of the top dining spots in North hero, with a pleasant vie of Lake Champlain and an area outside where you can enjoy a drink and gaze at the lake. The dining room itself is spacious and bright with a vibe more like that of a country club rather than a dark or hushed restaurant.

Shore Acres may look a bit like a motel in some of the photos, but it definitely is high-end feeling... more like a resort than a humble motel.

Anyway, the fare is somewhat innovative and very tasty. My duck had a delicious concentrated berry sauce and my wife enjoyed her salmon with quinoa. Many of the dishes are available in smaller "bistro" sizes with lower prices.

The dinners at Shore Acres are a bit expensive but the servings were generous and delicious. Our 4 friends also agreed that the dinner was most enjoyable.

“Excellent Food to Match the View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

We shared an escargot which was excellent. For the main course, we both had the bistro plates which excluded the salad plate. My wife had the breast of duck with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables; I had the tuna with red roasted potatoes and mixed vegtables. Both were excellent. We have not visited this restaurent for several years, and the food has definately improved!

“Breath-taking View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

It's all about the view! Photographers come from everywhere to take pictures of Lake Champaign from this spot. This is my home away from home, absolutely love it. Shore Acres is a favorite, it feels like being in a ski resort with rustic charm but a bit on the upscale side. During the summer people will play croquet on the front lawn, watch the sailboats go by, the lake will be sparkling. A wonderful place to unwind, sit under a tree and read a good book, or just dream. We are lucky.... it's a good life...

“Beautiful setting with excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

The restaurant has large windows facing the lake; spectacular view. Menu selection is excellent with "small plates" and large. Chef has been there 17 years and I think it shows. Drinks were reasonable and well made. The room has quite a number of lovely paintings of the area.
