We had 2 meals at the Tavern. One on the Veranda featuring the Tuesday Menu. The second in the Tavern with a full menu! The food was excellent! Very well prepared! My husband was thrilled to find duck on the menu!

I am happy to hear this, the duck is one of my personal favorites as well. Cheers!

Stopped at Morgan's for lunch. The room is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We were immediately seated at a lovely spot by the window. Service was very good - friendly and timely. We had the clam chowder and French onion soup. Both were exceptional. We...More

Over the years we have enjoyed dining at Morgans. Yesterday's lunch was atypical, but since we only come down once or twice a year, this might be the new normal. In any case, ordering a soup and salad combo proved to be a big waste...More

I was in Middlebury on business and wanted a special meal for my birthday. Sadly, this was not it. I handed the waitress (who was, I guess, also the bartender) a recipe card for a margarita the way I like it, because I've had so...More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Yes, servers are the bartender as well, we find this works quite well with our dynamics, but I am sorry to hear she was misinformed about having Cointreau on hand, as I agree, it makes...More

Service is virtually non existent. Food was awful. Wine was not as ordered. Entree was cold, salad had no dressing. I asked for extra dressing and was brought, much later, different dressing. Terrible food, terrible service. The Middlebury Inn should throw these people out and...More

The food is OK, the staff is super nice, very attentive. However, I find the prices very high for what we ate. But I have the feeling it is the same in all Middlebury restaurant.

We sat on the patio and had the beet salad. Very nice and service was friendly and quick. Inside the tavern the decor is nicely done bar style albeit a bit dark. Everyone was very friendly and I'd recommend for lunch or a pub meal.
