“Simple, relaxing, and delicious meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Keeper's is the perfect setting for an excellent country meal in a wonderful part of Vermont. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive - providing useful and opinionated guidance on the menu. The space is well kept and provides nice a great ambiance. Certainly not least is the food. Everything has a such a fresh taste - making it evident that the restaurant takes their ingredients seriously. For a low-key, relaxing, and extremely tasty meal, I'd highly recommend Keeper's.

“A great meal and a great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Although seemingly in a relatively isolated locale, Keeper's was a real find. The wine list is thoughtfully organized, and very reasonably priced. The service was prompt and attentive, our server knew the dishes well, and she could really educate us about the menu items. Finally, the menu was diverse, the food attractively presented, full of flavor, and perfectly prepared. Really it was a terrific meal. I would definitely go again, and heartily recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

“Fantastic food but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We had a fantastic dinner. The menu is very limited. The bill was a bit of a jolt. We had a 5 course dinner and it was not cheap. I would recommend this restaurant. However, not a tremendous value.

“Great Food and Great Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

If you are in the Reading, VT, area and want a great gourmet meal at a reasonable price, this is the place! We have dined here every time we are in the Reading (near Ascutney), VT area and have never been disappointed. Everything from their daily specials to salads are prepared to order. The atmosphere is perfect. This is a small restaurant so call ahead for reservations. We will be going back on our next trip to the area!

“My favorite ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

...place on the planet to eat. The place is a wonderful surprise, a sophisticated country cottage on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere (and I mean that in a good way). A friendly Vermont vibe from the staff, and a good wine and beer list. But the food...a short menu that changes daily, everything exquisitely prepared and plated...and I always feel like the the prices are just a little less than I expected. It is a little drive from the hustle and bustle (for Vermont) of Woodstock, but the 15 minutes are worth every second. We visit the area a couple of times a year, this is my highlight of that trip.
