Food was wonderful and presented beautifully, the space is pretty and very 'Vermont' but the service isn't great. At all. Wasn't impressed. The younger bartender is good, but waitresses are not at all. And the older bartender was rude to me. Not impressed.

Snowed in and a great place to relax after a tough day on the mountain. Bartender has a good hand and the chef is impressive. Thursday night had good music to cap off the experience. Don't miss it if you're in the area.

The food is good, some dishes are great. The duck is usually awesome and they do a good job with their veggies. I've had a decent steak there too. Desserts satisfy fussy teens. Drinks are ample by a bit pricy for the area and ambiance. Make a reservation on weekends.

This place was packed when we visited, and seems to a well-rated local restaurant. Our hopes were high, but only to bet let down. The staff seem to have someone cracking a whip behind them, based on the nervous energy and frenetic way they raced around. Attention to detail was lacking as well as accountability (our wine glasses were warm,... More

Good food in a rustic post and beam restaurant. Good music and friendly staff. Quick service to boot!

It was very expensive, good but not $49 per plate good. They said they'd have regular plus tavern menu but only had 5 choices for dinner.

My wife and I ate here over the Christmas holiday of 2016. We walked in without a reservation and waited about 35 minutes for a table. We both got the duck, which was a very large portion. The service was great.

Stopped in for drinks and food with friends after skiing. Owner has all these rules about no cell phone and keeping your voice low. This is the worst place to go. Needs a new owner.

The night we had dinner at the 1846 Tavern and Restaurant was a busy one there. We did not have reservations for 6 people, but they worked us in after a short wait and the staff were all very friendly. The menu was surprisingly diverse and had a good selection of very interesting dishes. Everyone at in our party really... More
