Bennington doesn't have a lot of choices for fine dining, and this is one of the reasons why. Located in a handsome old railroad station this should be one of the nicest places in town to eat, but instead it is a frustrating place that can be pleasant, if you are there on a good day, but can just as easily send you away when the door is locked even though the sign says they are open or when your table is left sitting and wondering when a glass of water will be offered and a menu will be delivered.

I am the worst when it comes to eating in a restaurant. It has been so hard to find excellent food, fair prices and most important....CLEAN. My husband knows how picky I am and suggested we try the Bennington Station for our one year anniversary. I was not excited, however we have now found our new favorite place to go. This restaurant is so clean, so pretty to look at inside, relaxing, excellent friendly service and the food is delicious. We were very impressed with the presentation as well. I would suggest this restaurant to everyone. We will be going back often, and this time with our children.

We had dinner here while traveling in the area and expected something really special, based on the reviews. This is just a pretty good "standard" place with big servings, gloppy sauces, an iceberg lettuce salad bar and fake-fancy desserts. The salad bar fixings were mixed quality, some nice some unidentifiable. Our main dishes were huge and the meat quality in particular was very high, and our meats were cooked as asked for. But the sides - overcooked green beans and potatoes in a variety of manners, covered in sauces and filled with salt and butter, were nothing special. Desserts were tasty but served on huge 12 x 12 home depot floor tiles - to look like the slate now sometimes used in fancy restaurants - we really had to chuckle. Desserts were just fine, but presentation suggested something truly remarkable, which they were not. The dining room is nice but clamorous, and the seats and tables don't match. Seats are ballroom/conference chairs that are very low compared to the fake marble topped tables (plastic). This area is full of beautiful farms and farm stands displaying lovely produce and fruits - our visit was at the height of summer. Why restaurants can't serve truly fresh and local fare around here is puzzling. This is "great" for a small town, in the sense of big servings and pretty good quality standard food. If you are used to any bigger city's fresher, less old fashioned offerings, this will fill your tummy without offending, but will not rise to the level of excellent.

The restaurant is located in the old station. The building is really special. The food was good, but not great.
