Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Bar

“My favorite restruant and bar. Go to Mister Up's instead if you have five or more to seat. Two Brothers has a fancy section and a bar section. I prefer the bar where you can also sit and have dinner. It has a local pub feel and I love the quaint feeling. For something closer go to Paddler's Pub, but if you are heading to Middlebury it's my recommendation for smaller groups, couples, or solos. ”

New American Restaurant
$$
“A historic home, right in Middlebury, is the setting for Jessica's. The ambiance is classic old New England: a roomy set of dining rooms, cracking fireplaces, quiet corners, and very attentive service. The food is more modern and is excellent, made with locally sourced ingredients. There is a choice wine list and a sommelier.”
