We anticipated our return to dine here since we planned our trip. Sometimes when you revisit it's not the same as you remember but happy to say that Chef Raphael did not disappoint! We arrived early as we know it gets crowded and busy for...dinner. The maple chipotle wings were flavourful, crispy yet juicy and tender. The mussels were also plump and plenty. Our salad was large enough for more than two of us. Flank steak and pork chops were as we remembered delicious! Thank you and we look forward to our next visit.More

On a recent trip to see snow I settled on Vermont largely because it's such a great "foody" state. Besides being the craft beer capital, it's emphasis on naturally grown, locally produced food ingredients at most restaurants (at least in small rural areas like Jeffersonville)...made the decision easy. The Family Table Restaurant was the best of a number of excellent restaurants I ate at while visiting. It had a full bar including at least ten locally brewed craft beers and it's menu was surprisingly broad in appeal. It serves very good classic and comforting American appetizers and entrees and desserts with a Vermontian style, that includes among other things a creative use of maple extracts where appropriate (like the grilled pork chop I had) and the cream of mushroom soup was unlike any other (and better.) The service was very friendly and hospitable too. This restaurant alone is a reason I may go back to Jeffersonville again, which is saying a lot considering I live in Miami.More

My husband and I stopped there for lunch - just decided to give it a try and my husband said he had the best chili and I had very nice salad. And the bonus is good beer . All that was served by very friendly...lady. So, when I am in that area again I will stop by.More

When staying at smugglers notch for the yearly winter trip this is a nice restaurant to go. to. Went on a quiet monday night, and was served good food. The menu is varied and the host very friendly. Prices are reasonable. Will do this again

We arrived to a full restaurant, but a gracious waitress re-organized the wait list and table configurations so that all the folks waiting got tables. She warned us the wait might be long (it was) but the food was worth it. And appetizers and fresh...bread and butter and endless pitchers of water and offers of drinks helped pass the time. The blackened chicken pasta was SO good, and incredibly generous portions. I had the scallops, which were perfectly seared, over bacon and Brussels sprouts. My pickiest child rated the chicken fingers 9/10 for their crisp outside and juicy, steaming chicken breast inside. The filet steak was perfectly cooked. Our waitress was cheerful and friendly, and made the meal even more pleasant. Great food, I'll definitely return when we pass through Jeffersonville again.More

On our recent stay in VT, we stayed in Burlington and went snow tubing at Smugglers Notch. We hit up Family Table on the way back from the slopes for lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised. It took a while for our food to come...out, but it was excellent and the staff was very friendly.More

Our family ate here because we were looking for a reasonably priced restaurant near Smugglers Notch. The restaurant doesn’t look like much from the road and I am sure many pass it by. Inside we were pleasantly surprised by the very friendly staff and great...service. The food was terrific and well priced. What a great experience.More

This restaurant is next to a gas station with similar exterior decor, but it is not affiliated and definitely not a gas station restaurant. Very good food and nicer atmosphere but still family-friendly. Food and service were great, and prices were reasonable for the quality...of the food.More

Tiny town, beautiful area, friendly folks and really wonderful food! We were so shocked with this find as the food was so wonderful for such a small village. The waitress was so pleasant. The three of us each had something different and were all very...happy with our choices, but saw a number of others raving about their choice of the special "Veal Shank" and agreed that it looked absolutely scrumptious. We will definitely make this a stop on our next visit to the area.More

Food is excellent, waitresses are wonderful. First time here with our new son and they were very accommodating. Feels like being at the family table, great home cooking. The pork chops are mouth watering! Can't wait to come back!

Stopped in for a late Sunday breakfast. From all the reviews, we were expecting to be wowed, but we weren't. There were just two other couples in the entire place when we arrived, and there was not a steady stream of people flocking in. We...ordered classic eggs Benedict and the corned beef hash (homemade) with poached eggs. Disappointed that mornay sauce was used instead of hollandaise for the Benedict. It dulled down the Benedict instead of enhancing it. Always on a search for really good hollandaise, and I haven't been able to find it as good as my own. The home fries were OK, not awesome (too much cayenne). The toast was burnt. Coffee was good, and the service was good. A ho-hum experience.More

My Baby, Son and I were up in Jeffersonville, VT. This spot is AWESOME!! Farm to table, and the dishes reflect it. On Monday I had the Fried chicken with mash and gravy with cold slaw, and the Missus the Chicken Marsala. SO GOOD!! My...FC was crispy and flavorful, no dryness any where. So we came back on Thursday and my had the Seared Scallops with the Chili Chive Cheddar mashed potatoes and green beans. I had the Center cut pork chop with mashed potatoes and green beans as well. Folks, if up near Smugglers Notch, do yourself a favor, Eat Here. They are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. Shannon is Awesome, she will treat you right. Oh yes, the Creme Brulee is a nice finisher.More
