My family celebrates several birthdays in the month of July. As a couple live close to Ludlow,VT we thought of D J'S. They have a very nice room for a large group with some privacy. The menu has just enough on it for everyone and their specials are varied. I heard from several in the group that the rack of... More

Great food and good specials to try. Good salad bar! The lamb was spectacular, and have had great luck with stuffed haddock.
