Reviewed By Kim12342013 - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Had dinner with family and the service was good, food was tasty and atmosphere was warm. Enjoyed the calamari appetizer and the crab ravioli with shrimp. Tried the maple martini but was unimpressed. Definitely did not need the spices sprinkled on top. cheesecake was good.

Capital Grounds always seems to have a line, but it moves fast. There are lots of food and coffee selections and the seating is comfortable and fairly private.

The Common Man

The Common Man Restaurant is located in Warren, Vermont, in the heart of Mad River Valley, between Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen. Sited in a 19th century barn, the dining room is elegant in its simplicity. With hand-hewn beams framing an open hearth fireplace, the 100-seat restaurant is inviting and intimate. Since the original owners, the Orsini family, opened their doors in the 1960s, 3209 German Flats Road has been a popular place for locals, visitors, and skiers to gather for a quality Vermont dining experience. Now in its fourth generation of operation, the current owners, Chef Adam Longworth and Lorien Wroten, are working hard to re-energize this Vermont dining institution with small town hospitality and world class cuisine.

Great bagel sandwich I had! A bit pricey but that's because of Vermont's limitation on big corporations.

Peasant

Rustic French and Italian

Reviewed By HalzBoston_Ma - Boston, Ma

I was day-tripping from Boston and had memories of good restaurants in Waitsfield. Picked up Peasant from Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. I was surprised to find Escargot on the menu. Had to have that. And, they had great bread. My wife had the bolognese and I had the wild mushroom risotto. The bolognese was really good, it had a hint of cinnamon that really gave the sauce a unique flavor. I found this out as the cook made the rounds of the tables. Nice. More than enough food for the two of us. They were light on the servings of wine by the glass. Since I was driving, that was good. We had no room for dessert. If in the area, I'll be back

Applebee's

Reviewed By LG2Pro - Ellicott City, Maryland

Due to our schedule we needed something convenient for dinner. We ate two dinners - one dine-in and one carry-out. The quantity of food was good, but the quality left a lot to be desired. For example, we ordered the appetizer deal - tortilla chips were stale, and two of the other items were not what we ordered. The servers were nice to us, but they complained too much (and, too loudly) about their co-workers.

This place is fantastic, the food is great, the service extremely friendly, the atmosphere makes you feel welcome immediately, and the ice cream ... If I want to complain about something, then about the size of the scoops - they are way to large (;-D
