We stopped at Marsh Tavern after snow shoeing at the Hildene estate. Marsh Tavern is a historic restaurant but I am not sure it was worth the price. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was fine. My kale salad with added shrimp tasted...More

When you are in Manchester - whether staying at the Equinox or not - a visit to the Marsh Tavern is a must. Lunch or late afternoon is my favorite. It's warm and inviting with real Vermont comfort food.

Not cheap, but a nice place to get a glass of wine and a cheese plate, and then walk around the Equinox hotel afterward. Nice service, comfortable ambience.

I ate lunch here today. We had a 30 minute wait for our table, which was fine. It appeared they were understaffed, with only two waitresses serving the room. We didn't receive the bread tray until we asked for it (after the meal was served.)...More

The historic Marsh Tavern was the first building erected on the site of what is today the expansive Equinox resort. One of the first lodging houses in Vermont, its history predates the Revolutionary War. Today it is home to a celebrated restaurant and meeting place. Renowned for its hearty New England fare, patrons can enjoy a delicious lunch and the finest regional dinner cuisine. And for good fun, spend a while in the Tavern Lounge for cocktails, a tasty menu and outdoor seating for wine and spirits. Open daily.
