We enjoyed our meal - we ordered the salmon dish and the venison dish, and both were cooked just right. We also had an apple crisp for dinner that was great. Our waiter was excellent, very knowledgeable on the menu, and offered great recommendations. It was a little noisy in there, but there were a lot of families enjoying a... More

The Marsh Tavern is an excellent choice for lunch with a warm and inviting atmosphere. There are many choices of soup, salad, chicken pot pie, Panini, burgers and lobster roll. It is also open for dinner.

Always a great go to. It feels elegant yet relaxed. There are two rooms in the Tavern to choose from for seating. They make a great burger, salads are good too. They have a wonderful wine list. They put out a wonderful noche plate to munch on while waiting for your meal.

I recently enjoyed a really nice dinner with my husband and two young children at the Marsh Tavern. We've had dinner here a few times with generally positive experiences. We love the ambiance and the menu is really good - even for our picky children. On this occasion our server was lovely, she's worked at the Marsh Tavern for 10... More

Came in without a reservation and were just blown away. Great atmosphere for family or couples. Prompt courteous service. Understated atmosphere was perfect. The food - best meal I've ever had. From start to finish the quality, quantity and presentation of the food was amazing. Cannot recommend highly enough. We will be back.

After reading some of the reviews online, my husband and I were a bit leery about choosing the Marsh Tavern. When we arrived we had a choice of seats because it was not crowded. Apparently they were gearing up for the long weekend. From start to finish our meal was excellent. The waiter,Tom, was so attentive, informative and a pleasure... More

While the Equinox is an impressive hotel, and the Marsh Tavern is a nice room, the establishment can sometimes feel a bit like a tourist machine. The general disregard for our situation suggested a staff exhausted from dealing with a constant onslaught of bustling tourist families and poorly managed children. If you go there in high season (we were there... More

One of the best dinners I've ever had was at the Marsh Tavern. So when a last minute ski trip took us to the area we made a point to stop in. Unfortunately this meal was memorable for a different reason. We went there for a late lunch on New Years Day. We didn't get anything fancy, burgers, French dip,... More

Things started out badly but I had high hopes. First up, the hostess did not find our reservation upon arrival. Oddly, they called to confirm earlier in the day. We were seated anyway to their credit, I guess, since it was Christmas Eve. 15 minutes after being seated my phone rings and it's the hostess asking if we plan on... More

The historic Marsh Tavern was the first building erected on the site of what is today the expansive Equinox resort. One of the first lodging houses in Vermont, its history predates the Revolutionary War. Today it is home to a celebrated restaurant and meeting place. Renowned for its hearty New England fare, patrons can enjoy a delicious lunch and the finest regional dinner cuisine. And for good fun, spend a while in the Tavern Lounge for cocktails, a tasty menu and outdoor seating for wine and spirits. Open daily.
