Very good food
Stopped in for lunch and had the French dip sandwich and hamburg patty with gravy, mashed and coleslaw. Everything was very good. The gravy was rich and delicious and loved the creamy Cole slaw. Service was excellent.

I have nothing but complementary things to say about this establishment. The best part is, from the owner Tim, down to Barbara the waitress of 40+ years, they were amazing. Brian the cook served up some of the best food Vermont has to offer. We were just there for the Maura Murray gathering, and they did a superb job. If I could ... read more

Always reliable...been coming here since I was a baby.  The menu is basically the same as back then as is the classic old school restaurant salad bar with pub cheese and pickled beets.  I know that what I order will taste good and portions are always generous.  I would be sad if this restaurant ever closed down.

I eat at the Happy Hour often. I agree with a prior reviewer that their salad bar is awesome! It's alway fresh (even near closing time) and the selection of ingredients is big. I used to get an entree with the salad bar, but I found myself building a plate that looked more like a mountain, so now, I smartened up and just get the sala ... read more

Great experience
We had an awesome experience at the Happy Hour Family Dining. Food was good, service was great. Even after leaving and our car broke down in the front parking lot, the owner helped us fix it up!

We were a group of 8 and had an outstanding dining experience. The food was great, portions are huge, but the best quality this restaurant has is impeccable service. After we ate, we were about to drive home when our car broke down. The owner went above and beyond to help us - he provided jumper cables and helped get us on the road ... read more
