Tom and I are proud to continue the Windjammer tradition of simple, classic food in a fun and inviting atmosphere. The Windjammer and Upper Deck Pub are two unique dining experiences in one location. We invite you to enjoy great food in a warm and friendly environment with some of the best local hospitality around. Laura and Tom O'Connell

We have always loved Windjammer, but this past time we were disappointed by the salad bar. The lettuce was browning and looked slimy like it had dressing on it. I ordered the filet mignon and while the temperature was correct, part of the steak had a charcoal crust and had clearly been involved in a flare up on the grill. The food also took a while to arrive and we didn’t see our waitress much.

Best food I’ve had since moving to Vermont. Filet mignon cooked to perfection, great service, and certainly worth the price. I will absolutely return!

Salad bar was great, had to send my wife’s
Steak back twice.
Came back horrible , they never asked how it was and never commented on the fact she did not eat it.

was amazing per the usual, it was Valentine's day so it was super busy. The waiter was around a lot and the food came out quickly. The salad bar was fresh as usual and the fresh bread was warm.

Went here with my Fiance for an early Valentines Day date and it was the BEST meal I have had in a VERY long time. I had the Vegetarian Ravioli and it was amazing, mouth watering and I wish I was able to eat more of it. The salad bar was good, everything was fresh and plenty to choose from. Will definitely be back again!!!

The food was excellent, meat was so tender I cut it with a fork and had awesome flavor. Love the variety of the salad bar. The wait staff had a great personality and made the meal enjoyable. Didn't make me feel as though I was in the way. I look forward to our next visit.

Service exceptional and it was a very busy evening. Broiled seafood was good although a bit over cooked. NY strip perfectly done. Baked potatoes were a bit hard - a shame because they were perfect prime potatoes - try foil wrapping and longer baking time.

Tim was an okay server. The Argentina Malbec was vinegar. He never asked if wine was good.
The dessert trio was awesome.
I would go back.
