Read reviews and figured...sounds good. The reviews are accurate. The food was fine but we were really impressed with the owner, Skip. He seated us and we said "Thank you". He countered with, "Thank you for coming, we appreciate it" huh?.. This does not happen in our home town...which we love...but big cities are different. Our waitress was terrific and though I don't recall her name I noticed that all the staff appeared friendly and competent.

The bill was so fair. Example...I had two martinis and the charge was 14 dollars...total. 7 bucks for a Tanqueray martini. I'm moving there! Maybe not, but if you are in the area...eat here. You'll have a real nice night.

Also, our hotel said they do not take reservations. Skip said they do and I would advise it. They are deservedly popular.

Very friendly place. Had to sit at bar due to all tables reservered on a Friday night. Keith, the competent bar tender, took good care of us. Locals sitting at the bar, along with the manager were very friendly and informative about the area. Menu was limited on number of entries, but intriging. We fully enjoyed our food and chose to complement it with local drafts. Did I mention their ice cream sandwich for desert! Nice find after a long day on the road. Would definitely return if in the area again.

The food is Amazing. Period. We were passing through VT and had just traveled 6 hours by car and were road weary. We were craving a good meal and Elixir did not disappoint.
We started with ceasar salads. The lettuce was crisp and fresh the dressing was tangy and creamy...even the plate was chilled!
We then tried the corn chowder. This was simply scrumptious! I would go back just for the chowder.
We then tried the veal dumplings. They were outstanding with a sauce that had an amazing depth of flavor and oh so tender meat.
For dinner we had pan roasted salmon and filet medallions. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the olive pesto was to die for! The filet was perfect as well. The haricot verts lacked nothing. The potatoes were flavorful, fluffy and dense at the same time
The chef who works here is quite talented! We were very impressed.
The owners were warm and kind and our server was knowledgeable, professional and extremely friendly. The best part--this meal did not break the bank! We look forward to a return visit.

Went on Sat pm. Skip and Jane are long time restaurant folks who decided that fresh ingredients prepared and served with care and love are a winning combo. Mussels, chicken livers, ceasar slad, scallops and salmon where all delicious. The servers were skilled and cared. Prices were spot on to a little low? Go to Elixer.

We had a great dinner at Elixir during our visit to White River Junction. Our party of 4 ordered an assortment of appetizers and entrees (vegetarian, fish, and steak), and all were absolutely delicious! Our server was wonderful -- she always anticipated what we would need, so we never had to ask for anything! We will definitely dine here next time we are in the area.
