Wherever you come from, The Wheel is worth the trip. Food is great. Portions are huge. Dessert is worth the trip alone. NEVER, ever had a bad meal. BUSY. Service is great. Would go more often if my waistline would allow it.

We've been going to the Wheel for over 10 years. Most of the time for breakfast. Yes it can get a bit noisy at times, and it is rustic, but the food and service more than make up for that. There are always specials to check out, and the regular menu items will not fail you. The Philly steak omelet, the hash and eggs, or the sausage, gravy, biscuit and eggs will fill you up. Last week the special was blue berry muffin French toast, with real VT maple syrup. How can you possibly go wrong!!
As a side note, they do catering as well. We had an event catered and the food was fantastic, the price was right, and the portions were huge!

The place looks pretty rustic inside and out, but do not pass by. The food is wonderful, service is attentive and friendly and the desserts will amaze you!

All the food--from the good value club sandwiches to the daily specials--is well prepared and is a generous portion. The soups, breads and desserts are homemade and delicious. Yesterday I had a crab stuffed portabella which was excellent!

I wish I could post a picture of the size of the dessert portions. For 6 bucks you get a piece of cake that is tall and looks like a quarter of the cake! Plan to share!

Was just at the Wheel Inn on Saturday night. Good food and lots of it. Seafood, steaks, prime rib, italian, all good. There are specials each night. And homemade desserts. Go in your jeans and be prepared for some local flavor. Will be heading back to this restaurant!!
