“Wonderful restaurant in an old train station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

This place is just charming, and filled with character. We stopped here for lunch, the beef barley soup contained fresh veggies: celery, carrots, pearl onions (seriously, when do you ever see those in a restaurant?), the salad was a nice mix of greens, Maple Balsamic dressing on the salad was amazing, and my husband enjoyed a grilled cheese sandwich (several cheeses to pick from). Very nice place to eat.

“Good, solid, but not spectacular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Based on recommendations, we stopped there for lunch. Sat in the glass room. Service was a little pokey, given that it was not very busy. The heirloom tomato soup was very good. I had the Pesto chicken with risotto, and my wife had the steak sandwich. Both were pretty good, nothing negative to say, but not blown away. It is definitely a positive recommendation, however.

“recommended but disapppointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by our motel staff. It is a very attractive building being an old RR station.. Unfortunately it was understaffed the weeknight we visited. Our main courses did not arrive until my husband reminded our server that she had forgotten us. The food looked unappealing and was cold. The chef did offer to redo the food and not charge us for anything but we declined. Would suggest if going there to stick to very simple items and just enjoy the building

You have two menus to choose from, the dinning room or tavern.. depending where you sit. Really good food, no disappointments here!

“bistro..not really”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Bennington Station is always a wonderful meal..we chose to eat in the tavern thinking it was a whole new Tavern look and meals..haven't been here in quite a few years and found the same bar as before...nothing new except the name..bartender was cordial and helpful..but kept saying she was new..met the chef..great chef and helpful..locals visit this establishment...Bennington has lost a few of its regular bars and it shows...food..my steak was to die for and my husband got the fish and chips and was a very large portion..and vry good..
