“Dining in Westport, NY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

What a delight on a September Monday night in Westport to have the opportunity for charming surroundings, friendly servers and good food. Plan to purchase a gift certificate for family next summer. Kudos!

“A wonderful job done well.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

We recently moved to Westport (great town), and went to the Westport Hotel and Tavern only two days after it opened. We were both "new" as it were. The owners are friendly and made us feel very welcome. The interior is made up of several rooms with different atmospheres so you can easily find one to fit the mood you’re in. If you are looking for a lively place to have a drink and eat some great popcorn then the Tavern is it, want a quite fireside chat and dinner than check out the nook in the back room. During warmer weather they have a great porch and a patio. And yes they are open ALL YEAR ROUND. This is a special point in this part of the Adirondacks. Chef Muller puts together a great meal with many options. There are Vegetarian items as well. He adds authentic international influences to the meals you know and love so well.
Honestly, It's our go to place when we are looking for a fun, cozy place to hang out. They often have live music ranging from intimate guitar to larger and louder bands you can’t help but dance to.
I would also like to add that when my parents came to visit they stayed here as well. They had no complaint with the room and even though they are early risers (read 5am) some coffee was made for them to enjoy on the porch. That’s service you just can find much anymore.
So if you are nearby, or using the NY - VT ferry in Essex, or go to see a wonderful play at the Depot Theater next door, you MUST stop by the Westport Hotel and Tavern. Tell them you read this review and the locals recommended you stop by to say hi.

“Great ambiance, friendly staff and solid food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

The newly revamped restaurant inside the inn is worth a visit if you are in the Westport area. We all enjoyed our food which was a mix of entrees and burgers. The server was busy but friendly and the bartender was thoughtful in his suggestions for wine and mixed drinks.

They are one of the few places in town open year round so be sure to stop in and give them a try.

If you are looking for a cozy spot for two, request a seat in the fire place room.

“This newly renovated inn and restaurant deserves all the praise it gets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is a must experience restaurant. New owners, Jim and Jayne Vance have redone the old and tired Inn and made it the sparkling place to be in Westport. Open year around, with a tantalizing menu mastered by Chef Matt who has international experience, you will be welcomed by friendly and caring hosts. The Westport Hotel features a fantastic "tavern" in one room and three wonderfully appointed dining rooms as well as outdoor dining in the summer and a rear "deck" which hosts live entertainment.
Our food was exceptional. We tried both specials "lobster salad with avacado and mango and items from the menu, (my wife thought her chicken dish was one of the best she has ever had and she is very opiniated about her chicken). Drinks were well made and generous. The friendly bartender even checked to make sure he had made the perfect martini. One of the best choices in the North Country.

“Great Food, Great Price, Great People”

Apparently after a complete renovation and a new chef, this place has hit a home run. A must try if in Newport.
