Jessica's at Swift House Inn is our go-to for celebrations and for taking out-of-town guests. The staff consistency means that we are greeted by the same person and typically waited on by the same people. This is not a determinant of a good restaurant but in this case it's an indicator of a well-run place. The menu offers something for... More

Reservation were made many months before our arrival. Our dinners were wonderfully prepared . My husband had the calamari which were rather greasy and I would not recommend. The staff was attentive, but it appeared the service was understaffed .We had to wait a very long time for our wine to arrive. It was however a pleasure to be able... More

Dinner began with a warm olive bread with an equally lovely spread with lemon and olive oil and it set the tone for a great dinner and evening. We have agreed to meet there once every three months so we will keep you apprised.

My family and I were visiting Middlebury, travel plans were delayed so we needed to move our reservations to a later time. This restaurant was closing at 9:00, we asked for 8:45 pm, a stretch at a small place. The restaurant was welcoming and understood our delay. However, the term restaurant make this venue seem too impersonal. it is more... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Jessica's at the Swift House Inn. We have stayed at the inn many times but this was our first time enjoying the restaurant. The meal was delicious and beautifully presented. The scallops were perfectly cooked and the lobster ravioli was excellent in the delicate cream sauce. The baked manicotti was equally wonderful. Beautiful quality... More

We had two great meals at Jessica's. Reservations are a must. The is a nice variety of choices on the menu and specials,too. There are several rooms for dining and the library and sun room are fairly quiet.

We had dinner at Jessica's and the food was very good. There was enough of a variety for both of us to choose from.

A meal at Jessica's Restaurant is always memorable. The recently updated dining room is a reflection of the casual comfort and style of this New England country inn. Jessica's Restaurant is located in the Swift House Inn in Middlebury, Vermont. Jessica's is just two blocks from downtown Middlebury, set in an 1814 stately home, surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens. Jessica's casual atmosphere is the perfect place for an dinner for two, or a celebratory dinner for four to forty! Come early and enjoy our bar; Tom, with his more than 30 years of bartending experience, can fix you a cocktail or help you choose the right bottle of wine. We have won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for our wine list for six straight years! We also have local beers on tap including Switchback, from Southern Vermont; and two brews from Middlebury, Wolaver's Organic India Pale Ale and Otter Creek Seasona.
