Two Brothers pub (the bar side) ranks as one of the better bars in VT IMHO. Probably 30 drafts available, reasonable prices for pints, good service and chatty stool partners made for a nice stop in. Menu looked good, tho I didn't indulge. I love the classic, busy pub decor. Recommended.

Great pub atmosphere with excellent beer selection, ample seating at tables or the bar (whichever is your speed). Sandwich selection was great, I had the chicken parm panini which was very good and plenty to eat for lunch. The place is a winner.

Makes a decent pizza joint however, I miss the old menu. Nice bar, great atmosphere, very good service. Hopefully the old favorites will return.

Hello Foodlover F, Thank you for the review. While we also miss the old staples as we undergo a massive kitchen renovation, my hope is that you will reconsider your review and base it more on the nice experience you had rather than giving us a 2-star review for something we cannot improve given our extreme circumstances. It would have... More

I love Two Brothers Tavern so so much! Right now they're undergoing some renovations so their menu currently is limited to mostly pizza. The food is fantastic though! I highly recommend the artichoke pizza and the Funghi pizza. When they are done with the renovations, try the Santa Fe Tortellini -- it's fantastic. They have live music in the lounge... More

We were in Middlebury for the night and figured we'd give this place a second chance. Although the kitchen was under a complete renovation. We had a nice visit. The young man who was our waiter promptly explained the situation. There is a very limited menu due to the overhaul . At first ,we were going to leave. Pow Wow... More

Two Brothers Tavern is a favorite gathering place for students, friends and their families in Middlebury. We've visited Two Brothers many times during our visits to see our student, and finished graduation with one last visit of our favorite in Middlebury. The location is convenient to campus, the atmosphere is casual, the vibe is relaxed. The menu has varied during... More

Decent food, but be aware selection is greatly reduced as their kitchen is currently being renovated. Being seated at the front window, we were greatly amused to see our and everyone else's food brought in from the outside. Still selection was adequate and they deserve support and an "A for effort" in keeping this place going during the renovations. Looking... More

Four for dinner - good vibe, welcoming staff, excellent server. Good menu offering variety, quick service. A mix of young college students and locals of all ages adds an upbeat tone.

I ask why, because this place could be a gem and instead it serves mediocre food at best and the staff all seem to hate their jobs! This place needs better management and a new chef pronto!
