“Authentic Vermont Inn with Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We went here for a 30th birthday. The atmosphere was very lovely with a crackling fire. The food was delicious and the service was very friendly and accommodating. The only drawback was that food took a while to come out - we did have a large party.

“The "Inn" Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Mary's Restaurant at The Inn at Baldwin Creek is wonderful. The charming dining room with its roaring fire on a cold winter's night is warmly welcoming. The food is prepared with great care and the presentation is appealing. And yes, the food is great! We cannot wait to go back and hope it will be for one of their many special menu dinners.

“Great, seasonal food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

It's definitely a homey Vermont experience. The menus are seasonal, so we try to go at least once a season to check out what's available. In the summer the lobster rolls are great. In the fall and winter, anything with root vegetables is great. I always order off the specials menu, because they are actually truly special. It's an elegant place but still good for families (at least those whose kids are used to restaurants). Experienced, knowledgeable staff.

“Wonderful time at the Home for the Holidays Cooking Class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We had a delightful afternoon with Chef Doug Mack while he gave us tips and shared recipes that can be used for the holidays. Very relaxed atmosphere, wonderful easy to duplicate recipes, and great hands-on experience in an intimate setting. After the tour of the greenhouses and seeing their own chickens, we sat down to dine on the great food we had prepared. Delicious!

“Yummy stop - especially for the soup”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The garlic soup reportedly won an award as "best soup in Vermont," and it's unbelievable. Probably full of heavy cream and butter, but who cares - it's worth it. Don't order a salad because bread and the soup will do enough before the entree and then the homemade desserts...yum! Price depends on what you select. You won't get out of there for less than $100 without drinks (for two), but if you order intelligently, it's worth the price. I thought the bread was dry (the reason for one less star), but the Inn looks like a great place to stay. Would be unbelievable to stay here on a Saturday into Sunday morning and get brunch here. Yummy. A food-lover's weekend. I hear the outdoor dining in the warm weather is quite nice, but I can't report on it. The owner said that the Internet directions are almost always wrong. If you're coming from Hinesburg on 116, it's on your left before the turn off to Lincoln and before getting into Bristol. From the South, go through town, go past the turn right to Lincoln, and it's coming up on your right. Beautiful grounds. Chef has been doing his work since 1983, and they have cooking classes and special nights where people "try out" the possible menu items for the next season.
