We had been to Mary's a number of years ago and had an excellent meal. In hopes of repeating that experience, we took some friends who were visiting the area to Mary's. Unfortunately, the food was terribly disappointing. My husband's steak initially came out well done instead of medium rare, which our server immediately recognized and returned to the kitchen. The steak came back medium rare, but they had not refreshed the fries. My duck was overcooked and dry and the rice pilaf was tasteless. Our friends were not impressed with the swordfish or chicken. The only highlights were the garlic soup and Lulu's ice cream (even my favorite bananas foster, which used to be flambed at the table, was lackluster). Our server was excellent, as was the hostess - - they felt badly about the overcooked steak and tried to make it right with a complimentary glass of wine and prosecco toast. Unfortunately, their friendly and attentive service couldn't make up for the very disappointing food.

This is our 3rd Valentines meal. Excellent as always. I was looking foreword to the duck but upon seeing it served on other tables it looked like it was dumped in a fryolater. We both opted for the beef tenderloin and it was perfect. The roasted potatoes were not browned enough and it looked like they might have been held and then microwaved.

We are long-time customer's of the restaurant and have never been disappointed. The food is always terrific and locally sourced. The fire in the fireplace makes the atmosphere wonderful for a February night in Vermont. Of course my wife of 33 years made the conversation, as always, fantastic. Cheers to everyone at Mary's.....another great dining experience and evening out.

Exceptional previous dining experiences at Mary's drew me to share this beloved spot with out-of-state relatives on the last evening of their visit! Slight issue with entre was remedied IMMEDIATELY and cheerfully. Super friendly and knowledgeable wait-staff impressive and much appreciated. While Mary's is generally at the top of my budget, I continue to feel the choice worth every penny! Of course I'll return - as will my guests - hopefully MANY times.

Unfortunately, the idea behind Mary's (all local foods) is better than the actual eating experience. I would say the main complaint both my husband and I had was that the chef seems to be heavy handed. If he'd lighten up with his sauces and spices and let the freshness of the food come through, it would have been a five-star experience.

Our family of eight had a post Christmas dinner at the Inn. We had adults and kids, carnivores and vegetarians, millennial and seniors. The menu is always varied and offers something for everybody. We particularly like the garlic soup and the roasted, pickled vegetable appetizer. Three of us had the burger special this time, but my daughter had the crab cakes and two had the vegi-burgers. There is a kids' menu as well.
Mary's is in a sprawling old home with a bar in the middle. There are party rooms and intimate spaces, all nicely appointed . The service is low key and friendly. We go there fairly often, particularly with friends.

We had Thanksgiving dinner at Mary's and it was amazing. The turkey, the sage stuffing, the beets were perfect and the garlic mashed potatoes with turkey gravy were some of the best I've ever had. Service was polite and prompt.

Mary's is simply our favorite local place to stay and eat. Their Thanksgiving buffet is legendary--and for good reason. The variety and quality of the offerings can't be beat. Doug Mack has been 'farm to table' from long before it became a trend. He has sustained a high-quality operation for decades. Linda, who oversees the front of house, is warm and wonderful. Laura at the bar is a hoot and a half, and one of those craft-cocktail folks, in the best way.

Meanwhile, Doug makes the best omelette on earth (this is a bit of an in joke for us).

Meanwhile, the rooms are gracious and spacious. It's our splurge to stay here a few times a year, as it's a wonderful family who run a wonderful family place. GO.

Fabulous service. We had Sunday brunch...WOW! Crab cakes were more crab & less breading, boar meatballs were out of this world, the other two meals, well I can't spell them but we were delighted. We had an 11 month old and his meal was brought out in advance of ours...that was a first and it was a saving grace. Happy baby, happy guests...kudos to our lovely server. My cocktail was remarkable. Wish I could remember the name of it...but our server was also the bartender and she gave me exact ingredients. Perfect birthday for this lady. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

been here several times (10-15) throughout last 11 years. This past time was not up to par. Slow service, perhaps understaffed. 25 min to get a beer after placing the order; empty water glass for 20 min. Food was fairly good, maybe slightly less so then in the past. Bypassed dessert.

We have visited Mary's several times and three things about the restaurant stand out: the setting is peaceful and lovely, the service is efficient and friendly, and the food quite good. Our recent visit for brunch was on a very busy morning with lots of college parents and scions dining. Nonetheless, our food was delivered promptly and our server did not seem stressed. There did seem to be some confusion in the kitchen (we were told they were out of selection and then told they had it) but not a big deal. The restaurant's ambiance also was not as sedate as usual, a bit noisy, the large dining area was reserved for a bus load of "leaf peepers" and other guests shunted to a smaller room.

The food was generally up to its usual standards: as described and tasty. My order of garlic soup was not as warm as it should have been and seemed to have a different consistency than normal, but still very good. Our entrees (breakfast burrito and farm-hand scramble) were good (we finished all of each) but seemed to lack the usual presentation flair that Chef Doug provides.

All in all, our brunch was pleasant, it was a beautiful fall day, and my dining partner was lovely. We will definitely go back -- just perhaps not on parent's weekend!
