Family friendly near Okemo (Ludlow, VT)?
I live 30 minutes south of Ludlow, and I've tried most places. If you're looking for gourmet, try the Downtown Grocery, excellent food and service, but you'll need to make reservations well in advance of your trip. DJs is alright, nothing inventive, it's food. I like Java Baba for breakfast (and coffee), but it can get crazy during ski season.
Another family-friendly idea is the Loft Tavern. While it, like most places, gets super busy during ski season, the food and atmosphere are great. Good choice of Vermont beers, decent menu, and a fun environment.
