A word from 275 Main at Pitcher Inn
"The Pitcher Inn is a jewel of sophisticated dining off a remote rural country road. The menu, which changes almost daily, is replete with brilliantly prepared dishes, from the Nantucket Bay scallops in a saffron broth with crimini mushrooms, pancetta and grilled bread ($17) to the braised Colorado lamb shank with orzo, tomatoes and French feta for $30. This may be Vermont’s best restaurant." New York Times

    We chose this place, a Relais et Chateau spot, to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. I can't conceive of a better choice. It seemed as if the entire staff was waiting on line to congratulate us and serve our every whim. The menu had such excellent choices that decisions were difficult. Torn between two of my favorite appetisers, grilled octopus and fried oysters, I let our server choose for me: the oysters. A frequent habitue of French restaurants, I never had better. My wild striped bass and my wife's lamb were excellent. A truly delightful experience.

    275 is one of our favorite places to dine and we had one of the best meals we have ever had there Saturday night.We had great food and wine recommendations from our waiter, Mason. The local lamb was superb as was the filet and the composition of each plate a visual treat as well as interesting to eat. All five desserts on that menu were tempting and the three we ordered, delicious.

    It's not difficult to find a good restaurant in Vermont to enjoy, but I wanted a special evening to celebrate a significant birthday for my wife. We found it at the Pitcher Inn. Because it was summer, the backyard gardens were beautiful, and the stream babbling next to the dining room added to the ambience. And the food was a treat, with unusual pairings of ingredients that worked magically together. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable and led us to several dishes we would have passed by.

    We have been long-time fans/diners at this lovely inn and restaurant. The menu is always interesting, the service, attentive and the actual meal is always at least very good. We had another delicious meal and lovely time with good friends. The wine list is extensive and is always well matched to the dinners ordered. It is wonderful for breakfast/brunch but they serve that meal only to people staying at the inn.

    I took my boyfriend to Pitcher Inn for his birthday and we were visiting from out of state. He's a foodie and I expected outstanding food, particularly based on the price. The food was good but nothing special. But the Inn and the location are gorgeous. The restaurant is romantic, ask to be seated by the window overlooking the water. We did not order wine that night but the sommelier seemed very knowledgeable and they had a pretty nice wine selection.

    After hearing rave reviews about The Pitcher Inn for years, I finally decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed at all. Everything was excellent. Our waiter (Mason) made us feel right at home as if we had been there dozens of times before. He was top notch. The food was delicious. Ari (sommelier and manager) helped us choose an excellent bottle of wine that went great with the food we had chosen. Overall we could not have asked for a better experience and will be back. While it is certainly not cheap, it was still worth every penny.

    We had a very enjoyable dinner. The goat cheese was wonderful with the salad. Our duck and lamb entrees were very good. And we enjoyed the chocolate dessert. Highly recommend this place for a nice night out.

    275 Main at the Pitcher Inn is one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions. Chef Sue Shickler uses local, organic grass fed meats and local, organic fruits, vegetables and cheeses. The staff is friendly and helpful and service is always attentive and personal. We are never disappointed! This Relais & Chateau Inn is a delightful place to stay in the winter with Sugarbush and Mad River Glen Ski resorts nearby, and especially in the summer during the Valley Arts Festival.

    This was our special weekend in a nearby cabin and we were hoping to find good, local restaurants. Based on online recommendations we decided to try the Pitcher Inn. What a great find! From the moment we walked in, the staff made us feel right at home. Everyone was friendly, yet maintaining that efficient and professional air of a fine dining restaurant. The wine list is good and includes a larger than average selection of wines by the glass. This is always an issue because my wife only drinks white and I generally prefer red, so we rarely have the opportunity to order a bottle. The appetizers were fun. We were pleasantly surprised by the fried sweet breads. I ordered the steak, which was amazing. Best steak I've had in years. Must return!

    We went to Pitcher Inn for a special birthday dinner while visiting Vermont on a short vacation to check out the area. I had found the restaurant while looking at restaurants online, and thought it might be a nice place to celebrate my birthday dinner, and I was not disappointed. While the food was great, it was the welcoming spirit and professionalism of our host and server who made the occasion so special. From the Happy Birthday printed on the menu, to the wine pairings of our courses, to the little candle on my dessert, he took very special care of us. If we should end up in Vermont in the years to come, we will look forward to returning to the Pitcher Inn. What a gem!
