    Cold food on a buffet. Food sat without being refreshed for more than an hour while we were there. Very disappointing. Potatoes and chicken were hot. Beef, salmon, vegetables and especially fries and chicken finger were cold to the point they would be a health violation.

    Terribly understaffed and only serves a limited buffet for dinner. Staff was very nice but there were so few of them that the restaurant was dysfunctional

    Our waiter was the sole server in a busy dining room and did a good job serving good food. Our only complaint was noticing that an 18% tip was automatically added to the bill as the first entry without our being informed. I usually tip 20% but my tip would have been 38% had I not noticed the automatic tip. Buyer beware! We will be back though.

    We saw some bad reviews online. We knew this was a buffet when we booked it and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good and replenished quickly when things got low. Our server was very friendly and attentive. This is not gourmet dining but it hit the spot after a long day on the Mountain!

    It was a small buffet but the food choices were diverse so we thought we’d give it a try. There was something for everyone (sort of) because the quality was mediocre at best. The cheddar soup was good, but the beef was horrible, everything else was forgettable. The desert choices consisted on two different kinds of cupcakes, each of which were terrible (if my kid tells me a cupcake is terrible, that is saying something). A staffer told us there were also some cake and pie options and that we should ask our server. When we asked, we were told that for an additional $10 per person, we could choose from chocolate cake and, maybe, apple pie. What a joke - an add-on at the buffet for cake… Then to make things worse, they added an over 20% mandatory gratuity to the bill (added $21.20 on a $93.80 tab). Not worth it at all…there are much better options at Stratton.

    The quality of the food was not super good. Dessert were just a couple of old muffins and that’s it. Only one type of salad and they were not putting more food once they trays started to empty. Overall not the best experienced based on food quality.

    Dinner was buffet only (my fault for not catching that, it wasn’t particularly obvious). Most trays were on the cold side of warm when we arrived at around 6pm. The chicken was overcooked, even when the tray was refreshed from the kitchen, but at least it was hot. Unlikely to ever return, and based on all the empty tables I’m not alone.

    Our family loved our server, Moises. He went out of his way to be friendly and fun. He was prompt with our drinks and water refills, too. Hostess, Tiffany, was very approachable, also. Unfortunately, we were told many staff members recently resigned, leaving the place short-staffed, so the food timing and preparation was off. Appetizer after the meal (the server took that off the bill), $30 dish that was cold (they sent out a replacement dish and that was cold, too), etc. We know times are so tough for the labor market. We have been coming to this inn for years and hope that they get the support they need. We will certainly give it another try.

    Terrible food. I ordered the black Ash Pasta. $24 and no protein other than 6 tiny slices of mozzarella. It was what looked like spinach fettuccini (described as carmelized onions mixed w pasta so it ends up looking black) that was clumps if stuck together pasta-like someone who has no clue about cooking pasta, was made to cook the pasta- and essentially flavorless. SO got mussels. Fair to middling. Captive audience so can get away with this supremely overpriced mediocre food. Service was wonderful. Waiter was super friendly and attentive. Avoid if you can.

    We spent over two hours at the table at which point they said they were unsure when the food was coming out. Did not see one single entry come out of the kitchen for other tables. Almost every single other table got up and left with getting any entrees

    The first night I had chosen crabcakes and the Black Ash Pasta . Super good amount of food and simply delicious. Luka the chief is right on point. The next night I had shrimp wonton with amazing sauces. Then a margarita pizza which was very good Once again superb delights. Very friendly staff Kara was a great hostess and Al did a great job as my waiter.

    We were 5 minutes past our grace period as we had traffic to Vermont and no cell service to tell them. They tried to send us away saying we were late so they could no longer seat us. We finally convinced the manager to let us sit. We would have been better off not getting seated after all. The food was awful. Everything we ordered was greasy, cold, and unappetizing. Costco makes better appetizers. I’m having PTSD from the mystery meat sauce I ate. Never again. Would NOT recommend this place.

    We were very excited to go here but it was a real disappointment. The place was eerily quiet and it felt like we were eating in a conference room. The food was not that good either. I had the pesto gnocchi and it was sub par at best. Note, the gentleman sitting near us who talked on his phone at full volume the entire evening sent the same dish back so clearly we were not the only ones who felt this way. The ambience was not inviting at all. And, the food and drinks were not cheap ($64 for 4 mules). The ONLY positive was the service -- our waitress was very kind and super helpful, so much so that we didnt want to send the gnocchi back. We were bummed we ended our weekend here.

    My friend got the arugula salad with calamari and I got the Black ash pasta. We also got a side of fries. Out reservation was at 4:30 (restaurant for dinner opens at 4) and they were out of arugula (only one other party was there) so they subbed the arugula for kale. The dressing lacked flavor--or maybe not enough dressing. Calamari was a bit salty but made up for the lack of flavor of the salad. As for the black ash pasta, it was more of a chicken noodle soup dish. Lack of flavor, the pasta was overcooked and became mush in the soup. I actually barely touched the pasta and ate everything else around it. A waitress (different lady than our actual waitress) came to clean the table and did not bother to ask me if the pasta was okay, even though it was obviously untouched. I have to say, any 2 star rating I gave was due to the focaccia that was given in the beginning. The free bread and the side of the fries were the clear winners of this dinner.
