Excellent local beers on tap. We requested a flight of local brews, and they accommodated us nicely. All of our group enjoyed tasting different items on the menu. Great appetizers! Best entree: any of the meals in ceramic baking dishes. The food was excellent, and the atmosphere was low-key but sophisticated. Bravo for this Turkish restaurant in the middle of... More

Came in for lunch by myself and sat at their bar area. The atmosphere is quite nice and you easily feel relaxed even though it's also very open. Everyone seems to be chatting and very happy every time I come here. Enjoyed the Phyllo Cheese Rolls and Turkish Red Lentil soup. Fairly unfamiliar with this kind of cuisine and should... More

Since my poor review last summer things have really turned around. Much better customer service. They have larger space now. Helps with the flow of traffic. Happy to say. Enjoy a mocha there on a regular basis now. J

We had been to the Tuckerbox when it first opened, and enjoyed it. We thought we would try it again since they had expanded. We were very pleased - the space and ambiance are very pleasant, the service was great, and the food was very good, and quite unique for rural Vermont. My wife had the Swordfish which was a... More

The old Newbury 5-and Dime store in downtown White River Junction has been converted into TWO restaurants, Tuckerbox with a Mediterranean menu, and another, Piecemeal Pies, featuring pies. Since Tuckerbox had more customers, we figured that with the turnover, the food may be fresh. We chose Menemen which came in an open, metallic individual casserole dish. To be honest, while... More

Arriving at dinner time on the northbound Amtrak, we spent the night in White River Junction, then returned home by late morning train, but not before picking up some great provisions from Tuckerbox again to enjoy on the way home.

This spot has had many restaurants but this one is great. There are no Turkish restaurants in the area and this seemed very authentic.There were many choices of kebabs and stews and an interesting assortment of appetizers and breads. A fun surprise was a nice choice of Turkish wines . We preferred the red choices. The staff were extremely knowledgeable... More

Visited the tuckerbox with my spouse and mother in law. The food was nothing to write home about. My chicken gyro was made of small chicken chunks and had limited chicken. The falafel sandwich was overdone and could use some reworking. The place was busy and we had to flag down waitress if we needed something. Nice building interior.

This Turkish/Mediterranean fare was incredible! The fig martini was a big hit for drinks, and we had the stuffed eggplant (one with lamb, and one vegetarian) and the Lamb Güveç. Definitely a return trip!
