We had an excellent dinner
We had an excellent dinner here on a busy Saturday night. The bar was hopping with some apre-ski music when we arrived at 6:45, but that ended soon after. By 7:30 a trio was playing in the dining room we were in, which made it a little loud. All of our food was delicious. A rack of lamb appetizer for $9 could have been a main course. I have never had better salmon, and the crab cake entree was very good as well. The chocolate lava cake for dessert was to die for. Service was attentive and pleasant. The food here is as good as anywhere in the area. Prices are about the same as other good restaurants. I could do without the dinner music, but it does give the place more of an upbeat atmosphere.

Had a great dinner there with my kids while on a little ski trip to Mt. Snow. The staff was great. The food was great. The locally-brewed beer and the live guitar player were great. Would love to come to this restaurant again.

Great Food and Nice Ambiance
Went to 1846 Tavern and Restaurant over the 4th of July weekend and enjoyed it greatly.
Service was good and food was delicious and served promptly and at the right temperature.
The chocolate Lava Cake was excellent!
Wine choices were good, and the atmosphere was upbeat with a guitarist.
The bar area had a lot of patrons enjoying the music and company
I would recommend this resteraunt.

Everything on the menu is fabulous. The staff is superb. If you are anywhere near West Dover VT, stop in for a first rate dining experience.

When we first walked in the entrance is through the small bar, lots of TV's on, tuned to sports, but all muted. The aroma of food was wonderful! As we were seated we started with cocktails that were prepared exactly as ordered. Menu contains a great variety of tavern/pub food but also fine dining selections. I wondered how that would be with such a variety. I started with a cup of the clam chowder, delicious! We ordered scallops and crab cakes, both entrees were excellent, and the plating would be acceptable in any 5 star restaurant. Diners around us had burgers that looked equally as good. We were very pleased with our meal and the service was outstanding as well.

Good Eats in a Cool Place
We just arrived in West Dover and starting calling around for dinner reservations and the two more famous places in town said "no way" We found the 1846 Tavern on Yelp! and made a reservation through OpenTable. What a find! The food was great, I had the Cod special which just melted in my mouth. My wife had the short rib, another winner. The Clam Chowder was delicious. The staff was friendly and the singer/guitar player was a treat. This is all to say that the 1846 was not our first choice upon arrival to town, it sure is now. Thanks for a great night!

My wife and I have been to
My wife and I have been to the Inn (and its Tavern) a number of times; the staff and ambience are always wonderful and the food exceptional. In the tiny ski town of West Dover, VT there is a world-class chef preparing amazing dishes using locally-sourced ingredients. Menu highlights include (both main courses) duck and sea scallop offerings (among others) and a fabulous array of appetizers including duck tenders in a hoyisin sauce...'great selection of deserts including one of the best apple pies we've ever enjoyed...heartily recommended...
