I like all the soups and sandwiches but my first choice fave is the lobster roll. Oh yes, try the Vermont Ruben. The lobster roll is loaded with big pieces of juicy lobster claw meat, and the Ruben has mucho well-seasoned meat. The onions rings are ok, but the French fries are superior. They have great salads too, and the... More

We were in Middlebury for the weekend and ate lunch twice at Two Brothers Tavern. The menu was different each day with enough items to choose from for everyone to find something they liked. The food was excellent with decent size portions. The restaurant displays a list of the many local suppliers they use, which is always nice to see.... More

I came here twice during my six week stay in Middlebury and it was by far one of my favorite spots. I tried the macaroni and cheese, schnitzel, poutine, and the reuben. All were great and reasonably priced. I'd definitely come back here if I were in the area again!

Two Brothers is a great spot for a casual meal. The menu offers good choice and we enjoyed everything we had. We were driving through the area but will make a point of stopping here again.

Lunch on a hot Hot Sunday afternoon for two couples in search of a casual but excellent food experience was met and expectations exceeded through the can-do, friendly, attentive and educated responses from everyone --from the enthusiastic young woman who greeted us at the door, to Ingrid, our waitstaff person who was informed and engaging! Fabulous sweet bacon; delicious flatbread... More

Two Brothers is an exceptionally pleasant place with prices in line with most of Middlebury's other similar establishment. Food was decent, nothing special. Good selection of local craft brews on tap in a fun atmosphere mixed with locals, tourists, and college students.

We had burgers that were excellent. It has a very nice atmosphere and friendly staff, but the kitchen was VERY VERY slow. The waitress apologised a few times. They weren't really that busy for a Monday night. They are also very good with Gluten Free.

This was highly ranked on trip advisor and didn't disappoint. Excellent turkey wraps and sweet potato fries, great ambiance and friendly service. Highly recommend as a stop on the way through Vermont.

We spent a week on Lake Champlain recently and Middlebury was the closest community that offered a number of dining options. Our first stop for lunch was Two Brothers Tavern. While Two Brothers does offer a dining room and bar tables, we chose to sit at the bar. We have come to love the bar experience; far more social than... More
