While the smokehouse has many options, they are limited on vegan GF ones. That said, they will get creative for you if asked and the kitchen isn’t overwhelmed. Everyone in our party got what they ordered and left full or with leftovers. Good size portions....More

We ordered the special of a pound of wings and a sandwich. The wings were extremely dry, like they had been sitting for hours. The burger was not worth eating. The atmosphere is very rustic. the floor is not level. I would not go back.

Great food for all our out of town family and friends who came to VT for my daughter and new son-in-laws wedding. We had the after after party at the smokehouse from 11-1 pm. Quite the spread after the wedding and bonfire. Delicious!

Recommended by our Inn keeper. It was mostly locals when we went for the Thursday $1 rib night. A wide variety of local craft beers. Excellent ribs with interesting sauces. We ate out on the deck and watched the evening roll in. With our ribs...More
