“Not the place to eat in Killington”
Reviewed July 10, 2006

We had a dinner at Casey's Caboose in June when in Killington for a few days of golf. For our whole vacation, we were on the road for 10 days and this was the only bad meal we had the entire trip. We stopped early, 5:00, on a Saturday night; there were only 2 tables in use, but there did appear to be several wait people on hand. It looked cute inside and the menu looked good. Our waitress set the tone with no smile, not even a greeting, just kind of "what do you want' attitude. So, we order drinks and wait, then order dinner and wait. Finally bread and salads arrive. The 'french' bread is so hard it is difficult to cut and appears to be like a large crouton - hard and crunchy all the way through. I ask the waittress for another loaf, perhaps not so well done, and she lectures me that french bread is 'supposed' to be this way. Somehow, she missed the concept of how customer service is directly related to the amount of tip. I ordered the london broil - did not come with the 'au jus'; my husband's NY Strip steak was barely edible, etc. etc. Our friends meals were just barely adequate. We are not difficult people in a restaurant and generally just like good basic food, served with a friendly smile. We'll eat elsewhere in Killington.

This was the only bad note in our stay in the Killington area. We stayed at the wonderful Birch Run Inn and wish that we had all of meals there!

“Attention & Quality Not Consistant with Price”
Reviewed December 10, 2005

We were looking forward to this restaurant. It seemed to (and does) have a really neat atmosphere, and shorter folk can actually climb up and eat in a real caboose.

We were looking for a decent dinner in a decent place, so this seemed like it would fit the bill. We were judging by the entree prices - $15 to $30.

The food was okay, but the experience was lousy. When we entered (through the bar), we sort of felt like they were surprised we were there. I had a medium/well london broil with au jus, which mystically came without au jus or a steak knife. (The waitress didn't come back for fifteen minutes, so I cut my meat with my butter knife and gave up on the juice.) The veg of the day was overcooked squash.

However, we stopped in at the Grist Mill down the street and LOVED it. Skip this place and go there. We liked it so much we ate there three days in a row.

“Sometimes Great”
Reviewed August 21, 2005

I have to say this restaurant can be great. Or it can be okay. The owner seems to switch the chefs around to his other restaurants in the area so it can be spotty. Always packed in the winter so expect a long wait most nights.
