Fast seating, smiling waitress, bread with meals. Ample portions. Reasonably priced. Wasn't room for dessert and the pot roast was succulent.

Thank you for the inquiry. The Onion Soup is not a vegetarian item and we enhance the flavor with house made beef stock. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Michael

Thanks for the inquiry. We do have a 5 seat bar, but it is very tough to reserve seating for you at it. If you would like to reserve at table, please call 802.362.0611. We look forward to having you dine with us. Michael
