“good food, very good service”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

by the Gorge means near it... not a view of the Gorge. but.... the luncheon menu was good, the prices were right, and our food was very good. Service was excellent with a cheerful staff all around the dining area. Everyone seemed to be happy with their food so we weren't the only ones impressed. You can spend more money in this town and probably get a lot less. skip the snack bars nearby and eat here.

“3 of 4 stars (good, casual dining).”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

(see explanation of ratings below)

Breakfast and lunch only. Nothing fancy, but reliable.

Ask to sit on the porch to the right.

About $10 per person for lunch, before tip, no dessert.

Allow thirty minutes.

About my ratings:

Only high-priced dining establishments can garner five stars. Until TripAdvisor realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, TripAdvisor's rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish TripAdvisor would do the same):

1) fast food and "fast-casual", low-priced (no table service).

2) casual, mid-priced dining (table service, average entrée price: $10-$20).

3) fine, high-priced dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV's in dining room, average entrée priced at more than $20, can vary depending on the city).

High-priced dining can earn a max of five stars. Mid-priced dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We chose to eat here during a recent girls' trip to VT. We were shopping nearby and had read prior positive reviews for Dana's. We had the soup special, a caesar salad, a grilled cheese with real Vermont cheddar and veggies, and a chicken salad plate. Everything was fresh and yummy. Service was a little slow but it was a busy holiday weekend. Everything was served hot, though. I am from CT, so am used to high prices. I thought lunch was very reasonably priced. The atmosphere was very 'homey Vermont', the sunroom was very sunny and we enjoyed that...it was like eating outside without the chill. We'd eat here again!
