“It only gets better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Thw Barnard Inn (Max's Tavern) is THE place to eat dinner (make sure to make a reservation) when you are in the Woodstock, Vermont area. Everything from the pleasant and helpful staff through dessert is top rate and oh so tasty! We actually decide which days to be in the Woodstock area based on when the Inn will be open (tuesday through Saturday)!

“Cozy atmosphere, serious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

The Barnard Inn has two dining rooms: one very elegant but cozy area inside the main part of the house, and the other small bar/dining area toward the garden. I've only eaten in the small dining room, because it's cheaper, more cozy and less formal, yet it is still a *wow* dining experience. I had the bouillabase and chocolate mousse last time (to die for, both), my husband had the linguini, and my daughter had the burger and fries. I love this place more than any other here.

“Good food, slow to leave”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Food choices are adequate; food preparation is very good. Veggie gardens in back are a nice touch. Service was very good until it came time to get the bill - that took a very long time.

“DELICIOUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

The Barnard Inn Restaurant is great. They serve fine meals in both a tavern setting and a dining room. Nice scenery and easy to find. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

“Eat local!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

This Inn was a treat. Hearty portions of wonderful food more than made up for slighty inflated prices. Locally sourced food, much of which was grown onsite was great. The tavern atmosphere was lively and casual. We'll be back!
