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 start over!

I'm sorry you had such an awful experience. It's hard for me to react with such blanket condemnation and no, I'm not going to throw everyone out and start over, but I take your comments seriously and I'm sure we'll do better. Geoff Conrad General Manager More

I am generally hesitant to eat at the place I'm staying but Morgan's proved me wrong. They use lots of local farm products. Service was friendly and efficient and it has a full bar with local beers. Wednesday is prime rib special for $22 including a glass of wine. People around us got it and it looked yummy. I went... 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.

Good breakfast and room to eat in, but breakfast should be included with a nights stay. Highly unusual to pay separately for the both, and location is great in the inn.

It's hard to go wrong with pancakes. Adding blueberries usually just makes them better. My son had chocolate chip. Plus bacon, real maple syrup, coffee and juice for $12.95 ($11.50 if you're staying at the inn) it's a deal.

This "tavern' is to be avoided at all costs. The staff do a real disservice to this beautiful inn. They are indifferent, rude, and unprofessional. The food takes FOREVER and when it arrives it is cold and/or just plain bad. Go out into the town for meals - plenty of great choices.

I'm sorry you and your family had an unpleasant experience in our restaurant, Morgan's Tavern. Although no excuse, any restaurant can have a bad day and clearly this was one of ours. My long time server, for whatever reason, didn't pick up on your distress and other than a steak that was returned, understood the other diners to be enjoying... More

I was staying at the hotel for one night and chose to eat dinner and breakfast on site at Morgan's Tavern. At dinner the waiter was attentive and the meal I chose was excellent and came in a reasonable time.. The restaurant is small but very nice. The next morning I came down early with the plan to go back... More
