“Still here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

First ate at this restaurant when it opened back in the 70's-they are still at the same location, and still serving excellent, fairly priced meals. Recently had lunch in the bar room on a cold, blustery day, hot cider was the perfect antidote, as was a splendid burger and a lavish dessert of ice cream, sorbet and berries....most certainly worth a visit for lunch of dinner.

“Very nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a light dinner, and the motel clerk recommended Pauline's.

We both started with the butternut apple soup, and we found it seasonal and delicious. It could have been a trifle hotter.

Then my husband had the cheese plate starter, and the whole plate was excellent - three different cheeses including the best cheddar he's ever had (Cabot cloth-bound aged cheddar), and fruit (apples, grapes, raspberries), plus some bread.

I had a pear and Gorgonzola salad with a lovely Balsamic drizzle. Outstanding!

We wanted a light meal but we were tempted by the International Crepe, with Lulu's vanilla bean ice cream and a bit of chocolate - couldn't resist, so we shared it and enjoyed every morsel.

Service was quick and pleasant, although not hovering. We were seated in the pub area, and I enjoyed watching the bartender prepare her concoctions.

We won't hesitate to go back the next time we're in the area.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

We had a wonderful meal at Pauline's. I had the special of sirloin tips with wood mushrooms over wild rice. The tips were cut up so it was more of a goulash and lots of mushrooms (yumm!). My husband had the hanger steak which came with an assortment of sides (mashed potato, brocolli, carrots, swiss chard) and it was very good. Instead of bread, they served a cut up popover - delightful. We also split the international crepe dessert (crepe wrapped coffee ice cream with chocolate sauce and toasted walnuts & whipped cream) - wonderful. The menu is not huge but there were several specials, including several vegetarian & gluten free choices. Service was excellent. Pauline's is right on Rte. 7 but the restaurant is small and elegant. We made reservations as it was Friday night but it was only half full. Very nice place!

Very charming place..went there for dinner. Service was good..food was good but not much of it and a bit pricey for what you got. The popovers that they serve are wonderful and something you don't get anywhere else in the roll basket.
