We stopped here before taking a tour of nearby Green Mountain College. It gave us a nice sense of the local hometown feeling, great food, reasonable prices and within walking distance of the campus. Friendly staff, good food, local ingredients.

I have been going to Perry's ever since it opened. The fresh potatoes that come from the Perry's family farm make the best fries and mashed potatoes anywhere. I have tried several of their signature dishes which are all wonderful but, I have to revert back to their luscious hot turkey sandwich and a piece of pie. Friendly staff makes... More

Ate here several times during a trip to Vermont. Food was always good and the service was good. I would eat here again.

I am a good cook and I loved their homemade mac and cheese! Homemade soups and local burgers! Servers were wonderful and extremely helpful. Steady clientele full of appreciative locals. We liked it so much we brought 2 friends back the the restaurant (same day)and had coffee and dessert as they had their lunch !

We last traveled to Vermont four years ago and decided to visit one of our old haunts. It hasn't changed much and that's fine with us. The food is good and plentiful, the service is with a smile and we entertained our friends without being dismissed. We enjoyed our Buffalo Burgers with french fries straight from Perry's farm. We miss... More

It's warm and inviting here. Everyone knows each other and it's great. Waitresses are very friendly and attentive. Fresh turkey and real mashed potatoes. The grilled cornbread is the best I have ever had! The desserts are huge. The strawberry shortcake is enough for two and looks like it's made from scratch. (we didn't eat it but stared at our...

If you're looking for a quiet, romantic dinner, don't go here. If youre looking for a full stomach and good food, this is where you want to be. Have you ever played dinner dash? If you have, you'll feel like you just enter the game as the two waitresses dash around. It's seat yourself and finding a seat might not... More

Perry's is an family run restaurant on the Main St. The restaurant attracts locals, college students and tourists. The food is real home cooking - juicy burgers, nightly specials and desserts like mother used to make. The strawberry shortcake, if available, can feed the whole family. Breakfast is served all day.

Amazing food, big portions & great prices. Cozy little diner that feels like home. We eat here a few times per month. Their bacon cheeseburgers are to die for!
