Simon Pearce Restaurant, recently voted one of America’s Most Romantic Restaurants by Travel and Leisure and Best of New England, VT : Meal with a View, offers Creative American cuisine utilizing fresh local ingredients, thoughtfully prepared and attentively served in a classic restored Mill overlooking the Ottauquechee River. The staff motto is "quality without pretense." The dining room is casually elegant with views overlooking the waterfall and covered bridge. Recipient of Wine Spectator's "Best of Award of Excellence" since 1993, they offer a series of wine dinners monthly from November through May. They feature handmade glassware and pottery, which you can observe being made in their on-site glass and pottery workshop at The Mill. Enjoy their retail shop before or after you dine. Reservations are not accepted for lunch but are accepted for dinner. The restaurant will do their best to accommodate requests but does not guarantee any specific seating.

"This is a very popular restaurant; few tables were available on a weekend even with some notice. One reason; the ambiance - if you get a window table, you either look out at a covered bridge & waterfall, or a scenic country river. But the restaurant takes advantage. The food is very good, but not better than other finer establishments nearby, and the price point is pushed to stretching. Example - an app of beets (four baby beets), with a few greens, sold for $13. Another minor point - Pearce is a master marketer and the restaurant is geared to sell. All the artwork shows store products, and the menu includes mention of the particular glasses, etc. you're served with, in the event you wish to buy them."
