Casual Dining in Vermont brings you the freshest foods in a relaxed setting

Casual dining is a specialty in Vermont, where farmers and food producers take pride in their work and their mountain culture. Restaurants, cafes, bistros, and bars and grilles keep it fun and festive. Sit on the waterfront, beside a crackling fire, dine al fresco on the deck, enjoy spa cuisine poolside, or a hearty brunch feast in a cozy setting. You’ll find the best New England fare, inspired burgers, cold beer on tap, places with plants, lots of natural light and atmosphere. The food is Vermont fresh, with locally sourced ingredients in everything from microbrews and sumptuous entrees to mouth-watering desserts.
