What a terrific new addition to the Waitsfield area. We had lunch and dinner at this place and were impressed each time with the food! The owner made himself available and was very gracious.

We chose to sit at the bar and we're glad we did. Mel, the bartender, was seasoned and a laugh and a half. The special burger (the chef mixed ground beef and bacon himself) was insane. The bread pudding was simple, yet perfect. The prime rib was perfectly cooked. And the maple bourbon manhattan? Yes indeed.

This delightful pub/restaurant opened in February 2014 serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Like all new ventures, it took a few weeks to iron out the kinks but from Day One, it was clear that the Chef was a true gem - cooking and creating enticing dishes instead of reheating food generated from the mass of food suppliers.

Our last visit during Vermont Restaurant Week (April 25 to May 3) was simply amazing and provided my husband and I with one of the best local dining experiences we've had and there are some really good options in the Mad River Valley. The mushroom soup was incredible and the seven ingredient salad has a dressing that should be bottled and sold as it complemented the freshness of the vegetables perfectly. The meat loaf which has been on the menu since they opened is another exceptional dish and the vegetable schnitzel (a special for restaurant week) was different and delicious. Both of us opted for dessert, although we really did not need it and enjoyed Apple Strudel and Chocolate Moose: house-made and to die for.

The restaurant does not take reservations but so far we've never had a problem getting in. There are plenty of really good local beers and excellent wines to support the lunch and dinner menus. Marty and Ginger, the owners, really do care about your experience and are slowly but surely building a team of wait-staff who share their passion. Service has been a little hit and miss in these early weeks but the food more than makes up for any slight delays.

Newest restaurant in town run by a very experienced couple, service is excellent. I have tried the burgers, very good, chili, excellent but not too spicy, if you like your chili very spicy you may have to add hot sauce. Great places to stop for a beer after a day of skiing. Good selection of local brews.

Still working out a few service kinks - but nothing insurmountable. Food is very good and generously-portioned. Atmosphere is cozy and lodge-y.
