“Be sure to try the Yankee pot roast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

We've often enjoyed lunch at Bryant House on our visits to what I call the Vermont Crunchy Store, and this year's visit definitely kept a good thing going. My pot roast was terrific, as was Madame's open-face turkey sandwich; he also enjoyed the wines, available by the glass at really good prices. Service, on a very busy Thursday, was friendly and reasonably quick, and the bar room (where we usually end up) is a pleasant venue with its old-style dark wood paneling (moved from another old house, and a perfect fit, we're told). There are also rooms upstairs where you can look over some classic old New England furniture.

Bryant House is quite popular, particularly in the summer, so it's a good idea to put your name and preferred time in early. They don't do reservations for specific times, as such, but will get you seated within a few minutes of what you've asked for; at least, the arrangement has always worked for us. Parking is plentiful in the VCS lots. All varieties of credit cards are accepted as well.

Bryant House is a wonderful slice of old Vermont, and even if you've got to wait a while, you'll be glad you stopped in.

“Excellent find for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

On a quick trip through central Vermont, we decided to checkout the Vermont Country Store (VCS), which is kind of quaint, and tried the Bryant House for lunch. It turned out to be a better reason to visit Weston, VT than browsing in the store!

This old converted home, right next to the VCS, is a great place for a leisurely lunch. An interesting selection of soups, sandwiches, and entrées, with fresh ingredients. I had the grilled ham and cheese sandwich, with local Vermont cheddar ... delicious! They also had a local draft root beer, which was very flavorful and not as sweet as the supermarket varieties ... very good.

If you have some time, check it out, it's excellent.

Thank you so much for your nice review of your lunch at the Bryant House. The grilled ham and cheese with local Vermont cheddar is one of our most popular lunch menu items. I hope you can visit us again real soon and try another one of our customer favorites, like The Pilgrim Sandwich, made with hand-carved roast turkey layered onto artisan cranberry-pecan bread with fresh herbed stuffing, lettuce, homemade cranberry mayo, cheddar and applewood smoked bacon. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience with others!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We had lunch here as a matter of convenience while visiting the Vermont Country Store, and we were surprised with how good it was. We had sandwiches, a grilled cheese that ranked among the best ever, and an exceptionally good veggie burger. The fries with both were fresh and tasty, and the pickles, which are usually an afterthought, were incredibly good. Fine service and a calm atmosphere. Altogether, totally enjoyable, and quite reasonably priced.

“Nice way to relax on shopping spree”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Rainy day, too mucky to hike, too boring to stay in hotel gym or pool. What to do? Head to VT Country Store in Weston. After buying all sorts of goodies we didn't even know we needed or wanted, we headed to Bryant House for lunch. We lucked out and didn't have to wait for a table. Two or three other groups arrived shortly after us and they had to wait. But besides having a tavern area, there were plenty of comfortable areas to sit on porch and covered wooden gliders while waiting for tables. Husband had grilled ham and cheese sandwich that was great, plenty of the good stuff-the ham and cheese while light on the grilling butter so it was crispy, tasty and not at all greasy. Yes, I admit I had to taste test his sandwich. I ordered the pilgrim sandwich which is turkey on cranberry nut bread. The bread was very good but cut on the thick side and quite dense which made it heavy going to get thru half the sandwich. I think the bread would be great toasted and served for brunch or with thin layer of cream cheese for an afternoon tea break. It wasn't overly sweet, just enough sweetness to make it seem like it would be a good dessert. The stuffing that was spread on the turkey was heavy on the sage. No one would ever need to go away hungry. The desserts looked interesting, but we still had several more areas of the country store to visit so didn't bother with dessert. As an FYI, the restaurant has store catalogues for you to browse while waiting for your meal and if you like the glassware, linens etc at your table, you can purchase them in the store. There is also an ice cream "stand" outside the restaurant with cool Coke memorabilia on display where you can get a cone or sundae to enjoy on your way home.
