Food Scene

Right on Route 30, only three miles south of us is The Barn Restaurant, which is not only the closest restaurant to Indian Hill, but also a local institution. Housed in a converted 1880s dairy barn, The Barn is best known for their terrific steaks and burgers. They have a dining room upstairs and a tavern downstairs( we recommend the Tavern downstairs because it is more funky and fun). Live music on some Wednesday and Friday nights in the tavern- check their website or call 802-325-3088.

Upscale restaurant that we love- for a fantastic meal or just drinks at the marble bar... this is what happens when you take a historic inn and make it hip. (Who knew you could do that and not have it be disastrous?) Seating outdoors on the patio, weather permitting... on the pricier side, dinner only.
