Very comfortable atmosphere, amazing food, a place you can see current and old friends and make new friends too! Definitely a need to experience restaurant... several options await you!

Kat Gray

Our favorite go-too for a wonderful meal in the tavern, try the chicken schnitzel!

Margaret Counts-Klebe

It's really rare to get great food, with great service in a perfectly relaxing and pleasing atmosphere but Max's Tavern at the Barnard Inn delivered on all of that during a lovely meal that my husband and I enjoyed there on a Tuesday night. From the chilled buttermilk cucumber and watermelon wasabi soups to the delicious local chevre and strawberry arugula salad to the monkfish to dessert, everything was divine. My husband says that his avocado and shaved chocolate ice cream is the best dessert he's ever had and, while I thought I was too full for the carrot cake, it turned out to be the perfect thing with piped dollops of cream cheese frosting rather than a big thick coating. Thanks to the great wait staff as well - you made our night by seating us at a perfect table by the window to the rose garden and serving us graciously and efficiently!

We had our wedding at the Barnard Inn on 10/5/19. Everything exceeded our expectations. The venue was absolutely magical at peak fall foliage and our pictures are amazing. Will and Corinna worked with us to personalize our menu and drinks. The food was spectacular and our guests are still raving about it. Our event went off without any problems due to Corinna's meticulous attention to details. This was a perfect wedding venue!

Cool little place on a nice motorcycle route.

We were staying about 5 minutes away and this was the only place to grab a bite to eat and we were pleasantly surprised. The Inn is rustic and cozy and the food was fantastic. Even my 3 year old's chicken fingers were remarkable. They have a great local bar menu and diverse food menu to please anyone. We are marking this one as one to go back to.

Hit and miss. I ordered the Wienerschnitzel and it was fantastic; my wife ordered the steak and it was worse than any home-cooked steak I've had (very rubbery and chewy). Even the French fries were soggy and tasteless--how do you mess up French fries? People with allergies, don't come here--the waitstaff/chef refused to make any substitutions even though my wife was allergic to the side included with her meal and the only explanation was "the chef won't budge." Our waiter was nice and professional but seemed borderline afraid of the chef, which was concerning. The menu was incorrect on a number of things, which made the ordering process take way too long as we had to figure out what actually came with each dish. Overall, not worth the 5 minute drive from our Airbnb. Very overpriced for what we got (except my Wienerschnitzel).

Do you remember the food at any wedding you’ve been to? Probably not. Well our guests do! Even 3 months after our wedding, our guests are still raving about how delicious their meal was. If you’re looking to have a wedding (or any event) in Vermont, you should not look any further than the Barnard Inn. The people are friendly, the location is beautiful, and the food is freaking amazing! We were looking for a venue for our fall wedding and we only had a few requirements. We wanted an outdoor wedding at a venue that didn’t feel like a “cookie cutter” wedding venue, that would let us extend the wedding past 10pm, and that could serve our guests great food. Will and Corinna at the Barnard Inn checked every single one of our boxes. The property (restaurant, barn, garden, and pond) is very well maintained and absolutely beautiful. There is a gazebo by the pond that makes for a stunning wedding ceremony backdrop. Will took the time to sit down with us and the parents of the bride to go over the wedding menu and other details of the venue. He listened to all of our concerns, took notes, and was able to address them far beyond our expectations. From making sure there were enough bartenders serving our specially requested drinks, to having plenty of meat in the chicken pot pies, Will was on top of everything. The bride + entourage got ready in the recently renovated space below the barn and Will made some luncheon food for the bridal party to eat throughout the day, which was delicious and we had to stop ourselves from overeating. Corinna came in every once in a while to check on things, and even went out of her way to bring the bride (who was sick) some extra tea, honey, and lemon. We decided on pumpkin risotto, chicken pot pies, and braised short ribs for our wedding meal (as well as horderves during the cocktail hour) and we were not disappointed. All of the food was locally sourced, and the quality and presentation were what you would expect from a high-end restaurant. As an example, the risotto could have been simply plated, but each one was served in a miniature pumpkin! When the meals came out, everyone was envious of everyone else’s food because it all looked so good. Even though we had 100+ people at our wedding, the food was served to all our guests hot, simultaneously, and on time. We could not have asked for more from a wedding venue and are so incredibly happy with everything that Will and Corinna did to help make our wedding as special and amazing as it was.

I have been eating at the Barnard Inn restaurant since before they opened the Tavern and the food continues to AMAZE me every single time. Every item I've ever had, from the foie gras to the onion rings, are so full of flavor. I highly recommend making a reservation in the dining room to experience the phenomenal fine-dining menu and peaceful ambiance. With a family? Try Max's Tavern. The Barnard Inn offers menu choices for ANY palette. Any visit to the Barnard Inn is always worthwhile;

I hate writing a bad review but I felt like we were ripped off. We attended the Valentine's 5-course dinner and were sorely disappointed. The waitress, while very nice, talked us into a bottle of wine that turned out being $70. The appetizer I got was 3 small soggy oysters. The salad was pretty good but very tiny. The main course which was schnitzel was basically fried chicken (very good chicken) but was not what I expected in terms of Wiener or Yaegerschnizel. It came with mashed potatoes. Final bill: $286.00. I did leave a tip (less than that) but accidentally took both the merchant and customer receipts with me. Absent the slip, the owner took the liberty to increase the tip to $50.00. Unbelievable. I was actually hungry leaving this restaurant after spending almost $300.00!

Located in a beautiful 18th Century building you'll be knocked-out by the quaintness of this restaurant. Entering through Max's Tavern, you'll find a charming setting with several tables and a small bar. Proceeding to your left is a hallway that leads to two formal dining rooms, each with its own fireplace. The food is excellent. Think farm-to-table meets comfort food, with some ethnic twists here and there. A great experience all around. The Barnard Inn has no guest rooms. Cell service is sketchy in Barnard, but the Inn has their own cell tower (so to speak, it runs off their wifi) provided by AT&T. You can ask to be connected.

Great food, quiet and comfortable
