If you choose to venture out there are several restaurants in the Montgomery area to choose from. Most of these eateries are within walking distance, as we are located right on Main Street.
These restaurants are open most of the year, and in the Winter Ski Season and Fall Foliage Season, there are approximately 15 other restaurants open within an a half hour drive of our front door. We are more than happy to make reservations at any of these restaurants for you, which we recommend on weekends, as they often fill up during the high season months.
72 Main Street, Montgomery Center, VT
Right down the road and within easy walking distance even after a filling meal —Bernie’s is one of our favorite restaurants in town. It’s famous for its Mexican nights but even on those nights it always offers its traditional menu. Eat in the front if you want to be seen; eat in the back if you want to be near the bar where the locals hang out. Closed for dinner Tuesday night. $$
241 Main Street, Montgomery Center, VT
Located next door to the Phineas Swann, this restaurant boasts an outstanding bar and bartender (Lilly) and an inventive chef with a menu that changes regularly but always has something interesting to offer. The decor is exceptional, and you can choose to eat in the bar area or the more formal dining room up front. Open Thursdays through Sunday. $$$$
14 Amandon Road, Montgomery Center, VT
We also are very fond of the casual Belfry Restaurant, located in a renovated mid-1800’s school house a few miles up the road (and within approximately a 5 minute drive) on the way to Jay Peak Ski Resort. The menu is great, but most impressive are the specials that are posted every night on the blackboard as you enter. Good luck choosing just one! $$$
13 Main Street, Montgomery Center, VT
At the end of Main Street in Montgomery Center, about a gentle 10 minute walk from the inn, The Snowshoe Pub is a great place for a casual meal where you can hang out with the locals and watch the latest games on their wide screen television or shoot a game of pool. The chef is also the owner, and there’s always live music on Saturday nights. $$
1078 Route 242, Jay, VT
Located in Jay, about 8 miles from the Phineas Swann (approximately 12 minutes away by car), the Black Bear Restaurant at the Jay Village Inn offers dine in or take-out. Nightly dinner specials include pasta and fresh seafood. Restaurant Hours are: 4pm-9pm Sunday-Thursday and 4pm-10pm Friday & Saturday. $$$
3709 Mountain Road, Montgomery Center, VT
Located halfway between the Phineas Swann & Jay Peak Resort (approximately 6 minutes by car) , this new addition to Montgomery Center’s restaurant scene is the perfect apres ski dining location, with half-portions available and a lodge-like decor. Restaurant Hours are: 4pm-9pm Sunday-Thursday and 4pm-10pm Friday & Saturday. $$
