My husband and I had dinner at Chauncey's and were delighted! The food was delicious and all homemade. They serve a delicious freshly baked loaf of bread with the meal and it was a treat. The wait staff was attentive and quickly served us and paid attention to us throughout our meal. The Chef came out to see how everything was which was so nice. The bathroom was impeccable. This is a family owned restaurant and they demonstrate their pride and have a jewel. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Manchester and Arlington Vermont.

Wonderful little restaurant and knows how to take care of its guests. I'd have to describe it as comfort food, and that's exactly what we were looking for. Sandwiches, omelettes, eggs, and more. Great home fries with a subtle maple flavor. And don't forget desserts. The coconut cream pie is to die for! Just one example of how well they take care of you: the last time we were there a bus arrived right after we did. The impact on the arrival of our food and our service for the rest of the meal? Zero. The service was stellar despite the crowd in the back room, our meal was neither delayed nor rushed. They have this down.

Plastic in the burger. The waitress looked at it and said "I don't know what it is".she told the cook. She came back and said "it's not from us. It must have been in the package." What kind of a response is this?Why would I care where it's from.Don't normal people say something like"im sorry. Can I get you something else?" When I pointed this out to the manager, he told me his waitresses have worked there many years. So ? This seems to be a Vermont thing. It's not exactly passive aggressive.
Rude staff. Dirty food.

Excellent food & service! We had a large family gathering & it didn't seem to phase them. Food homemade & delicious. (Known for corn beef hash but strawberry pancakes were extra yummy as well!) A++
