Simon Pearce Alternative? (Dinner on Roadtrip from Boston to Northern VT)

Have a multigenerational group of 5 (no kids, though) driving up from Boston to Chittenden on I-89 in two weeks. We had a reservation at Simon Pearce, but due to their storm damage we're trying to find a good plan B.

Along the same route (I/93/I-89 from Boston and US-4 W), what would be some good backups?

Hemingway's in Killington seems way too formal. And I can't seem to figure out if Murphy's on the Green is a really pub or not. Any recent reports from the Canoe Club?

      Just across the parking lot from Simon Pearce is the Parker House Inn, a cozy restaurant with French-inflected, yummy fare.

        Tip Top is great-- where's my like button??

        I personally think Murphy's is meh. The Canoe Club is nice if you need/want to be in Hanover, but the Tip Top has better food.

          You could not do better than going to Tip Top Cafe in White River Junction...they were spared any damage, they are convenient to your trip and they have wonderful food for every taste. You will be happy, they will be happy.
