Always outstanding. And we ate outside so the "noise level" category doesn't fit.

Clearly in over their head with managing the front end with limited seating capabilities. While I fully empathize and support business trying to survive these COVID times there is really no excuse for the poor customer experience we had. We had a reservation and were told we really shouldn’t have been able to make one through Open Table since it was supposed to be shut down. The host was flustered and overwhelmed by the multi tasking, but even so was moderately attentive (I use moderate generously here). Whomever seemed to be “managing” was horrible. Twice he called us in for our reservation only to leave us standing there unattended to for over 20 minutes each time. He was flustered inefficient, not friendly and generally dismissive. In their defense it was a busy Friday evening, take-out was hopping and they seemed severely short staffed. Had we not been desperate for a good meal (just came off 2 weeks of hiking) we would have left. It was really inexcusable. If unable to handle the crowd they should not have continued to act as if they could. On a good note, the wait staff was pleasant and efficient and the food was good. Probably should have been clued in that this manager was in the wrong profession when we approached the restaurant and he was standing outside talking to someone referencing something on the ground being his underwear he found from last night. Seriously. It’s unfortunate because this place could have a lot going for it. My advice.... stay away until post-COVID or until this manager gets his act together ,and realizes what the term customer experience means.

My “spicy “ margarita (which was terrible) had about a half dozen fruit flies in it . The food was pretty good and our server was really attentive. We sat at a table that was in the front of the restaurant and the windowsill was littered with dead flies. Needless to say we won’t be back anytime soon.

The service and food were great. The waiter came and set up an umbrella for us when the rain hit (we were outside seating).

We had to move inside because of bad weather, but got a table right off. Inside there were two loud screaming kids who were standing on furniture and running around. It was find since they were young and didn't know much better, but the parents didn't try to quiet them down at all. After they left a old white man sat with another white man and was talking very loudly. He was talking about politics, the virus and women's sexuality in an appropriate manner. He said if you "look at the demographics the virus is God's way of leveling the playing field." The other old man, who the bartender referred to as his dad, said something about Kamala Harris and the other loud white old man said "of yeah you mean that lesbian like Warren?" He kept repeating lesbian loudly. He referred to the bartenders father as a "scholar" which led me to believe he might work for the college. I was shocked the staff let them go on so loudly and be so extremely inappropriate and rude. Most of the patrons looked disgusted and the family next to use muttered the place was "hell". It's too bad because the waitstaff were awesome and the food was excellent, but the entertainment was grotesque. Given the men were somehow related to or affiliated with the bartender I would assume anyone who visits for dinner will be subject to their loud rhetoric.

Stopped in on my day off/sole resupply for a Southbound thru-hike of the LT. Probably the highlight of the entire trail! Despite COVID precautions, service staff was incredibly warm, welcoming and attentive. Our dog loved the outdoor area, the beer selection was the best in town and the food was exceptional. If I am ever back up in Middlebury this will he my first stop

Me and my wife use to go here a lot years ago. When we went the other day I was not impressed with the food. It seems like they got a new cook or something. But the food is not what it used to be

A lovely meal on the outdoor tables in the shade by Otter Creek Bakery. The service was prompt and excellent, the food was very good. Cocktails arrived quickly and were very refreshing (Mojitos for a hot day), gazpacho was good and the pizza 'bones' were delicious.
