Hadn't been to Countryman's in several years. Was just as good as we remembered it. Husband had lamb that he raved about. I had crab cakes that were so light they could have floated. Spaetzle tasted the way my mom and aunts made it. Chef made my meal from scratch to accommodate my crazy food allergies. Even without the typical herbs, it was very very tasty. The shrimp cocktail was big enuf I could have shared it but, selfishly, I wolfed it all myself! Then, we get to dessert-meringue pavlova to die for. Everybody in restaurant ate everything on their plates. Usually, you see plates being cleared in restaurants that still have food left on them. Here, nobody had anything left for doggie bags. I overheard one couple raving about the schnitzel and a family of four adults who loved the sauerbraten. The restaurant is in an old farm house, you can get in thru the side door off parking area and catch a glimpse of kitchen as you go towards the hostess station. The bar is small. But well stocked. The chef/owner is Austrian but serves delicious recipes from many areas, not just Austrian/German. We stopped the first evening, having checked their website to ensure they'd be open, but when we got there the chef said they were closed. So we came back the following evening and are glad we did. Maybe the web had a glitch, but you might want to call ahead if you're considering eating at Country Man's on a summer week night. This meal was one of the highlights of our meals in Vermont
