Great food and service. The weather was very pleasant so we got to dine on the lovely porch. Very nice experience.

Just ate here with a client....YUM! On a bit of a veggie kick these days so I had the soup to start, roasted red peppers, asparagus etc...REALLY GOOD. Could have had another bowl. Nice kick. The main course the roasted beet salad, very tasty too. My dinner partners had the crab stuffed haddock and that looked good too. Wish their... More

Stayed at the Inn and decided to eat here for convenience. Menu was more traditional American. We both started with clam chowder which was nice. I had New York strip which was excellent. My wife had shrimp and grits which she said was outstanding. I tried the grits - I don't get why people eat grits. Wait staff was helpful... More

This is the inn restaurant at the Middlebury Inn, and though the menu was not huge, everything we tried was very good. The strawberry soup was listed as a long-time offering, so I tried it - it was delicious, but sweet like a good strawberry frappe would be. I had a caesar salad, my husband tried a different soup and... More

We had breakfast there both mornings we stayed at the inn. It was such a delicious and filling start to the day. The worst part about the breakfast is trying to decide what to order because it all looks and tastes so good. Had chocolate chip pancakes and bacon one day, full egg meal (potatoes, English muffin, bacon) the second... More

My wife and I found ourselves in Middlebury for New Year ’s Eve so we went to Morgan’s Tavern. The hotel appeared to have several events going on that night, we were lucky to get one of the last reservations. The service was good, the food was good, we couldn’t decide on 2 appetizers so we ended ordering an extra... More

I expected much more from this restaurant as reviews were good to excellent. We had the Black Angus steak, one rare and one medium rare. Both arrived and we found that they seemed to be quite fatty and not the kind you can eat. Tough, which left us to believe that this was not top meat. Potatoes were cold, but... More

We stayed at the inn and decided to try the restaurant there. Nice quiet atmosphere. We had salmon with a rissotto and Flat iron steak with spinach and potato.

If you travel a bit from town there are better restaurants. If you just want some basic dinner (with good service) at your arriving destination than this place is fine.

Salmon and risotto was very good while the swiss chard was hard and chewy. Salad was a bit salty. Cost of salad was high for the amount served. Our friends had chicken and it was very dry. Atmosphere was good and service was excellent.
