I probably have been to this place about 10 times already and always with the same dose of excitement. Located right on the river in the old watermill Simon Pearce factory and display room is one of the kind. It has changed significantly after Hurrican Irene that flooded the entire glass factory, but the changes are for better. The area... More

I had chicken which was good also. We were there at sunset which was very pretty out on the deck overlooking the river.A bit pricey... More

We stopped in here for lunch while visiting the area. We are a party of 10 with 2 children (3 and 4) and 2 vegetarians. Everyone thought the food was amazing! I don't think our party had a single complaint about the food or the service. I think that says a lot when you can make 10 people that happy!... More

Delicious dinner prepared in a thoughtful and creative way with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The service was polished and highly professional, while not stiff or intimidating. The casual atmosphere was complimented by the gorgeous Simon Pearce glassware and tableware. A "must do" while in Quechee.

We enjoyed lunch at Simon Pearce for a late Father's Day celebration. It is such a beautiful location and the food and service are always outstanding. There has been some remodeling since we were here last which is a terrific improvement. Nice bar area has been added. My dad ordered soup and salad while I had the trout as well... More

Beautiful art glass made on site, available for purchase in their gallery which overlooks the beautiful Quechee Gorge. All clear glass. Some glasses and practical use pieces and some purely for the decorative beauty.

We were there for lunch and the food was great! All the items were so fresh. Try to get a table by the window so you can enjoy the view while you are eating.

We have been to Simon Pierce many times, and love to see the hand blown glass pieces and pottery. The highlight is usually watching the artists blow the glass or form the pottery, as it is such a lovely art. The restaurant also offers a nice selection for lunch, and though you may have to wait for a seat, you... More
