Dinner on the way to Killington?

krystle920 Aug 10, 2009 11:33 AM

We are driving from Stamford to Killington this Friday night. Looking for a good dinner stop along the way that's not too out of the way. Nothing fancy, just solid good food at reasonable prices. Open to any type of cuisine, but preferably something more local in flavor. Thanks!

    We always stopped at EastSide in Northhampton on the way to and from Killington. They have a lot of variety on the menu and the food was always delicious. I don't think that it opens until 5PM.

      Try the Eastside Grill in Northhampton. I haven't eaten there in a few years, but I loved it when I went. The food was good and the prices were reasonable.We used to stop there on our way back from Killington. It may only be open after 5PM. .I checked out the reviews on tripadvisor.com and many people had good things to say about it.

        I always enjoy Bentley's in Woodstock, VT. The burgers are huge, the French onion soup is fab., and their flatbreads are made from fresh ingredients. The decor is Victorian. The bar is fun and should be a bit busy on a Friday night.

        Also you should try the Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater. Again, big burgers. I love the Long Trail cheese soup. They have a variety of wraps and sandwiches. I only like to go there in good weather so I can sit on the deck by the Ottoquechee River. Check for times, though, they may close early.

        If you can wait to eat at Killington, Choices is the best restaurant on the mountain. I adore the filet mignon topped with blue cheese. Whenever they feature monkfish, I order it.

          I agree with Bentley's in Woodstock, VT and Choices at Killington too.
