It was restaurant week and the start of vacation. Who could resist the price fix menu!?! The Windjammer is our local go to restaurant for special occasions and a nice meal.

The salad bar was disappointing for how it was promoted. The prime rib was good and so were the French fries. My son didn't like the mashed potatoes. I had the lobster escargot. Too much butter.

My husband and I frequent the Winjammer. Love the salad bar and dinners are always tasty. My only complaint, is sometimes I feel rushed. Would like more time between my drink/salad and dinner. I need to digest one course before I move on to next course. Any suggestions?

Not bad. Food was alright.. Way over hyped salad bar. It was my first time going and the only thing I’ve ever heard was how amazing the salad bar is.. after the experience and the $130 dinner for two, I would say I might go back but certainly will not be a recommended place to go eat.

The fish platter was good but not exceptionally good. Way over priced. Almost $25 for 4 scallops (slightly undercooked), 3 shrimp and 1-2 oz of scrod. Salad bar was like any other salad bar. Nothing about our meal was worth the $100 we spent that night. Our waitress was good ! I would have expected a little more from this place. I get more value for my meals at chain restaurants.

This will have been our second time at the Windjammer! We were out for a late Valentines Day, and couldn't be any more pleased! The Waiter was so efficient, food was phenomenal, and the over all experience was perfect! Couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate our 3rd Valentines Day!

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!

From the moment we walked into the restaurant, we were greeted with a big smile from the staff at the desk. We had made a reservation so we were promptly taken to our table.
Our server, Devon was extremely professional, knowledgeable and attentive.
When our steaks arrived, they had obviously been sitting in the kitchen because they were room temperature.
Devon immediately took them back and ordered us new meals. This time they were hot, juicy and tasty.
Thank you, Devon.

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.
