I am always thrilled with a place where I can get more than one vegetarian option, but to be able to get poutine (fries, gravy and cheese) with vegetarian gravy AND a Otter Creek Black IPA was a terrific treat!

We chose Two Brothers because our host recommended it to us as a local favorite.
The ambiance, decor and actual meal were all great. BUT, and it is a big one (no pun intended), the service was Terrible (capital "T" was intended). We waited well over 45 minutes from the time we sat down until we finally received our meals. We sat on the patio (an alley) with 4 other tables of guests. We were the last to receive our food and the last to leave. During that time, not a single table was every cleared or cleaned. We ate our dinner surrounded by dirty dishes/tables. We had to ask for silverware, refills on drinks and a candle for the table because it was so dark in the patio (alley). We never did get the candle so it was dirty dishes in the dark. We saw our server a total of three times throughout the evening and two of those times we had to go ask someone to send him out.
The saving grace was that the food was very good. So, I recommend they get rid of the current staff for a more professional crew OR get a good manager on site to whip the current staff into shape. This location has a lot of potential but in it's current state, I wouldn't recommend it.

Friendly staff and residents along with good food! Nice place for a meal which we thought was excellent. Easy walk from our hotel.

We usually eat at the Storm, with a great view of Otter Creek Falls. But we tried this place, enjoyed a local brew, and the bloody mary bar, but the food took a long time to arrive, and the service was slow/absent. The Thai stir fry was very oily, as was the lobster mac and cheese. The outdoor seating was in a brick walled alley. Lots of better places in Middlebury, imho.

My family and I recently enjoyed dinner at Two Brothers. We liked the casual and welcoming atmosphere. The food was really good and reasonably priced. I had a delicious arugula salad with steak, my husband had a reuben, and the kids did chicken wings and Philly Cheese Steak. We could have opted for entrees but we were in the mood for something light. We enjoyed offering of locally brewed beer. The service was friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this to others.
