As you drive along Route 100 in West Dover, Vermont your eyes are drawn to a big black thing at the edge of a restaurant parking lot. You notice it even before the name of the place. What is it?? A Smoker!! Not something you would expect in Vermont!
And how do you decide what to have that has been smoking all day? We decided to get the "Three meat" plate with a choice of three of the following: pulled pork, sausages, ribs, chicken or brisket. Get ready! It's spicy compared to most New England fare, but certainly worth the try. And they leave a carafe of soda or water on the table to help those who use no mustard on their hot dogs!.Everything was delicious and you feel like you are visiting a piece of history as you examine the artifacts surrounding the fireplace.

The food was outstanding. The service was outstanding. This place was memorable. The best steak dinner I ever in my entire life. We are still talking about it.

We came in on barbeque night, and it was very tasty! You should try their hushpuppies. Decent portions of food.

I have been coming to the Mount Snow Valley for 20+years and love the Mount Snow Valley. Have not been here since it reopened with new ownership. Me and my family went for lunch and sat in the back with live music. Atmosphere was great and staff was friendly and attentive. Complimentary BBQ wings were brought out for all to enjoy they were very tasty and perfectly cooked. However the trip took a nose dive when the food we ordered arrived. We and my wife and shrimp and salmon salads. The salad was wilted and both fish were massively overlooked. My kids had pasta and butter and chicken fingers. Pasta was overlooked and had no flavor. Chicken fingers I think we're cooked last week and microwaved. With ice teas and juice meal came to $70 witch is a little Steep for lunch even if it is good and this was not.
I recommend come for drinks try the BBQ and skip the rest.

We had a great experience here. We were eating outside in the pleasant garden in the back, but in the middle of the meal it started to rain really hard. We were umbrellas, so we were OK, but the server kept coming out to check on us. He went above and beyond. The BBQ was good. Definitely one of the better places in the area.
