“Good food in a lovely inn setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012

The restaurant at the Middlebury Inn has the same charm as the inn itself. The food was above average, and the wait staff was very attentive. The crab cakes were fantastic. I wish I had tried the strawberry soup!

We're thrilled that you enjoyed your meal in Morgan's Tavern. Our Strawberry Soup recipe is a mainstay at the Inn, dating back many years, so you must come back and try it sometime along with some of our new menu offerings that are coming up. Thank you for taking the time to send in your review to Trip Advisor.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

We stayed at the Middlebury Inn and had dinner at Morgan's Tavern. The actual Morgan's Tavern was being renovated so dinner was served in the main banquet area of the hotel, which was lovely. Breakfast was also served there. The food was very good. No complaints about dinner. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly and the chicken picatta was delicious. Gloria, our server for dinner, was wonderful. She was personable and professional and the chef was more than willing to cater to dietary needs. We had breakfast in the morning and that was very good as well. Rose, our server for breakfast, was terrific and also very accomodating and personable. The Middlebury Inn is lucky to have both of them.

It's nice to hear compliments about our service employees. They are the unsung heroes of the hospitality industry and too many of us overlook the hard work they put in. We also have a great new Chef and a new look to the restaurant, so I invite all of our friends and neighbors to check us out on Facebook and if you friend us, you'll see some attractive offers as well. Thanks for your nice comments.

“Gordon Ramsey...SOS!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2011

Gordon Ramsey -- Please make a trip to help this restaurant! The kitchen clearly had issues. We waited for more than 2 hours for our dinner. The steak Dianne looked like it came out of a Stouffer's TV dinner. There were only 2 waitresses -- they were running their tails off trying to make the customers happy. Unfortunately, they were the bearer of bad news "just another 10 more minutes." They would be smart to get a new job down the street at the Fire and Ice Restaurant. This was my first... and last dinner at this joint. SOS Gordon Ramsey!

I'm sorry you experienced our restaurant on this particular night. Every business has those very difficult and hopefully isolated days where things just don't work out. Our aim as managers is to recover quickly and learn from these mistakes, which I know we have. I'm not going to make any excuses other than to say that I know in the months since you were here, we have had great reviews and no repeat of the unfortunate situation that you were part of. By the way, when i spoke with Gordon, he said he's had those days as well.

“What a find !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

We had dinner at the Morgan Tavern the last week of September. What a find ! When traveling we tend to shy away from Hotel based restaurants opting for well known restaurants in the area we are visting.. We had a excellent dinner, Sue our server was on her game. Loved the Strawberry Soup ! We even got a copy of the receipe. We recomend this friendly place.
