Known for serving refined American meals in a restored 19th-century mill overlooking a waterfall belonging to the Ottauquechee River, Simon Pearce Bar & Restaurant is a favorite among locals and visitors.

The culinary team focuses on creating exciting dishes featuring fresh and local farm-to-table ingredients. The restaurant has partnered with several Vermont farmers to feature local flavors mixed with global influences.

The business has evolved from its Irish roots and has incorporated techniques and flavors from country French, Italian, and Asian regions. Signature dishes include its Sesame Seared Chicken and Horseradish Crusted Cod.
