We were in Middlebury for the night and figured we'd give this place a second chance. Although the kitchen was under a complete renovation. We had a nice visit. The young man who was our waiter promptly explained the situation. There is a very limited menu due to the overhaul . At first ,we were going to leave. Pow Wow... More

Two Brothers Tavern is a favorite gathering place for students, friends and their families in Middlebury. We've visited Two Brothers many times during our visits to see our student, and finished graduation with one last visit of our favorite in Middlebury. The location is convenient to campus, the atmosphere is casual, the vibe is relaxed. The menu has varied during... More

Decent food, but be aware selection is greatly reduced as their kitchen is currently being renovated. Being seated at the front window, we were greatly amused to see our and everyone else's food brought in from the outside. Still selection was adequate and they deserve support and an "A for effort" in keeping this place going during the renovations. Looking... More

Four for dinner - good vibe, welcoming staff, excellent server. Good menu offering variety, quick service. A mix of young college students and locals of all ages adds an upbeat tone.

I ask why, because this place could be a gem and instead it serves mediocre food at best and the staff all seem to hate their jobs! This place needs better management and a new chef pronto!

Had dinner with my daughter while visiting Middlebury College from Colorado. This place was so comfy and the wait staff was great! It was very crowded for a Wednesday night so we sat at the bar and had Poutine - it was amazing! Also had steak and fries and reuban sandwich which was just as good! If my daughter ends... More

Not cheap, but not outrageous. Great place to eat. We loved the atmosphere, the location, and the food. Mac&cheese, pulled pork sandwich, beer/cheese soup. Outstanding!

For hanging out at the bar or watching sporting events, there is no better place. For high quality food for lunch or dinner, not as much. I know, it's pub fare so you can't expect that much, but it's nice to have some healthy choices that are actually "light." Even our salad was doused with dressing, the soup had too... More

Went here for dinner, and wished that we had found a seat at the bar. It was festive and decorated for the holiday. A couple of TV's but they didn't command all of the attention. We ordered the cheddar ale soup and french onion - both very good. Presentation was good too. I had the Canadian Reuben - it was... More
