“Can recommend breakfast and dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I have had both breakfast and dinner at the Inn. Both were excellent. I was lucky to be seated by the window both times so I could enjoy looking out onto the grounds and lake front.

I enjoyed both meals but the 3 course Sunday farm to table (everything you have is locally grown) dinner I had on was exceptional (the highlights were the Shelburne farm raised steak and indigenous harvest vegetables). If you can make reservations for one of these special dinners it is sure to be a treat.

“A Dining Treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Food, all from local sources, and setting outstanding. I had perhaps the best chicken of my life...and I have sampled a lot of chicken! Service friendly, but sometimes a little slow so relax and enjoy the experience.

“Where else can you dine like a robber baron?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

The main attraction here is the atmosphere of a turn of the century mansion sited in an extraordinary location. The dining room is very elegant but not at all stuffy. Tables are widely spaced. The menu is ambitious and for the most part the restiarnat serves delicious food. Lamb and beef are grown on the farm. Service is good for a seasonal restaurant-friendly but not polished. Highly recommended.

“Tour and Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Shelburne Farms was a blast to visit and postcard pretty. We included restaurant dinner after a well presented tour. The restaurant is very pretty with an awesome scenic view. We were a party of 4. The staff was courteous and polite. Food presentation done well, unfortunately my wife’s lamb came out bone cold. The waitress apologized and five minutes later she returned with the same lamb that my wife had already had a piece cut off. Again the waitress very apologetic. You can see the restaurant staff was not on par worth a restaurant of that caliber.

“Great Food with a Spectacular View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Located on the shores of Lake Champlain, the view of the lake and mountains is fantastic. The menu is extensive and a little pricey but the quality was very good, as well as the service. It's a little hard to find but having a gps helps.
