Love the atmosphere and service by bar tender and waitress. Food is very good. Best part for us is sitting by the bar and having authentic drinks and talking to both locals and travelers.
We really enjoyed our dinner at The Dorset inn. It is off season so we had ample seating choices. Not a lot of patrons so noise level low...everything was perfect. Service and food was wonderful.
Would highly recommend and definitely return to.
Restaurant is in a charming and historic inn, with a pretty dining room and fireplace. Very cozy. There is also a tavern for drinks or more casual dining. I had a delicious Caesar salad, and ordered the filet, with whipped potatoes and winter veggies. My steak was overcooked, unfortunately, but the waitress was very pleasant and took it back to the kitchen. When she returned with my new order, she apologized and said to save room for a complimentary dessert. My husband had a tasty beet salad to start, then their classic turkey croquettes, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Great service, and delicious food. What more can you ask for!
Very Nice and Quiet for a meal near a fireplace. 2nd time there and both were excellent.
Simply - perfect.
We enjoyed another delicious lunch in the cozy tavern room. Great atmosphere and service.
Great service but the cod fish was almost not cooked and taste bad. Lady who is welcoming and showing the table was rude. Waitress was great and helpful.
We had a reservation at Dorset Inn but they had work going on that prevented us from eating there. However, they also own Dorset Rising which is about 100 yards away and serves great sandwiches and soup for lunch. Dorset Inn owners had called ahead and made sure we got free gourmet cookies for dessert. Great ownership and great food. Highly recommend for a casual lunch.
I eat in hundreds of restaurants every year.....this is one of my top 5 favorites.
By far one of the best dinners we have had in a long time. I would highly recommend and return to this restaurant
We had a delightful experience at the Dorset Inn. The food was appetizing and nicely presented. The service was warm and friendly and the staff was knowledgeable about options. The atmosphere was charming and the views from the window
s were lovely. We will definitely go back.
We have had several meals at the Dorset Inn, and they are always wonderful experiences. The courteous, professional waitstaff serves excellent New England fare in one of the oldest inns in Vermont - you can't get more authentic than that. For a more casual evening, dine in the tavern and try the Dorset Inn burger. It's one of the best anywhere.
Been to the DI hundreds of times. Almost always on the mark. But on this particular occasion, the service was non-existent. We had to go find our server several times. Then we were charged for a birthday cake that was already paid for. So a bit disappointing. But everyone is entitled to an off-night.
Our group of four ordered various cocktails - delicious - and a variety of dishes. All great! The pasta of the night - penne with roasted shrimp - was my favorite, but we left thinking it would be hard to go wrong. Recommend+++
