Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Vermont's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
Mary's is out of the way, does not have scenic views of anything in particular, and is certainly more expensive than, say, Al's French Frys in South Burlington. But even though it's about 40 minutes from our house down to Bristol just to get there (driving one way) it really is our go-to for special occasion dining or when we just really want a good meal served by staff who actually know what went into the food and can intelligently discuss it. We especially love the garlic soup (they sell it in quarts for take-home, which should tell you something) but to be honest, we've never had a bad meal there. They do have a full bar with quite a few house-designed cocktails, but neither my wife nor I are big drinkers so we haven't sampled many of them. The food, though, is outstanding and the ambience is quiet, intimate, relaxing, and comfortable. There's a reason why Mary's appears on many "What Absolutely Not To Miss When You Come To Vermont" lists. MoreOpenTable Diner -

Located in New England, Vermont is a chilly and rainy state known for maple syrup and cheese. It's also home to America’s favorite snack, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. You'll find local farmers' markets with fresh produce, eateries that serve artisan foods and plenty of breweries and wineries everywhere you go. Vermont’s cuisine has been featured on television as a leader of the farm-to-table movement, because state residents raise, farm and locally forage much of their food to produce seasonal meals. Whether you're craving home-raised beef, freshly caught seafood or a bowl of maple syrup on snow, Vermont warmth can bring you the comforts of home.
