Had a reservation and even received a reminder confirmation from Open Table and got there and they were closed, not open on Sunday's for dinner, so won't use Open Table ever again.
Nippers was a great little find, just outside Manchester, VT village. The menu was a nice mix between comfort food and more exotic dishes. I had a pork tenderloin top with goat cheese and roasted pears, outstanding! Service was very good. The place is small, only seats about 24, put a nice comfortable place to dine. It also was a great value, which is nice to find these days. I will definitely go back when in Manchester again.
Not a steakhouse
We have had some very good dinners here, but this was not one of them. The fried Chicken came out with a ice cold center, the redone dinner was way over fried/ burnt. This Dinner was not at all enjoyable or worthwhile.
Wonderful restaurant with great food, warm/friendly service! Nipper's Steakhouse is our favorite place for dinner when we are in VT for a long fall weekend! We've been coming here for a few years now, and as with the past years, this past weekend's dinner was great! Thanks Karen & team for another nice evening!
Love the outdoor patio dining, particularly when Duane Carleton is playing. Burgers are great as is the sweet chili stir-fry. Great wine list.
Always fun on Thursday nights when Duane Carelton is playing. Great bargain.
Food was fantastic, wine list quite good for a small operation. Outdoor seating in the shade was very comfortable, service was outstanding, we were made to feel special. Prices were very reasonable, couldn't ask for more. Best meal I've had this year.
Hospitality was sincere and enthusiastic. Outdoor seating area was clever with fire pit and entertainment. Meal was well prepared, scrumptious sauce on the filets and delicious sides. Dinner rolls were spectacular and unfortunately there was no room for a tempting dessert menu.
If fancy tables, expensive place settings are what you are looking for-- don't go. If great food, refreshingly friendly without pretension service-- go
