    Excellent food, service, ambience. Rustic hunting lodge motif is warm & cozy. Be prepared for 10% county tax and 3.5% fee for cards. Otherwise an outstanding meal.

    I made reservations for 7:30, arrived at 7:20, and since our table was not ready, we had to sit at the bar until our table was ready at 8:10. It took the food much longer than expected to be brought to us (about an hour) and the waitress kept apologizing for us having to wait. I ordered the route 17 pig platter and the pulled pork bbq was good, the ribs were dry and flavorless, as well as the pork belly that seemed to have no taste to it at all. My wife ordered the pork chops which were ok, but not great. Then after having to wait about 45 minutes for our table, it seems like we were being rushed out so the next customers could use our table. No, I would not return or recommend.

    Excellent food, ambiance, and service. Vintage Tavern is our "go to" place for special occaisions. They never dissappoint. They can be a bit pricey especially with their Prix Fixe menus. Even so, the food and service is worth the cost if it is in your range.

    Desserts could have been better if the ice cream was beside a warm bread pudding instead of on top. The creme brûlée seemed a bit too cold. The Mac n Cheese was a bit spicy my daughter said. They should offer a dinner salad size dinner salad. I ended up with a lunch size and was probably charged for a lunch size.

    Food was excellent. Service was average. Took over an hour to get our entrees. There was a wedding party upstairs, so maybe it was a staffing issue. We will be back - hope to see improvement in service.

    The food was well prepared. The scallops were good but the portion size was too small. The ribeye was prepared well. The wedge lettuce was brown at one end. Unfortunately this restaurant charges a surcharge to use a credit card. This is cost shifting onto the consumer under the pretense of elevated costs.

    Great restaurant to celebrate. Classy atmosphere, but not stuffy. Everyone treats you special from the hostesses, waitresses, table assistants ( bus boys?). Not a huge selection for entrees, but enough of a variety. The food was excellent as was the presentation. A little pricey, but worth it.

    We are local to Suffolk and frequent VT, often. For NYE 2023 a 5 course meal was pre-planned for the evening. The first course, oyster stew, was served cold an hour after we were seated. 45 min later was the 2nd course, shrimp toast which was purely average. Followed by dry duck about another 30 min later. The rockfish was good, the only positive of the meal. This was not the poor wait staff fault, they knew it was going to be terrible before we sat down. Our waitress greeted us with it’s been a horrible night. We should have left right then. We did not complain because our waitress was constantly apologetic for the food not being ready. However, to never have a manager come over and apologize for the delay or the cold food, or take something off our bill, was unacceptable. We paid over $300 for a meal that took WAY too long and was terrible. Fin and Tonic thank you for coming to Suffolk.
