Deck is OPEN! May 11th

Yes, our delightful deck is opening tonight, Weds May 11th! We’ll serve the outside menu for the first night as a special opening treat!!

Thursday, May 12 the cart will be up and running and we start lunch outside (11-3)!! We’ll serve dinner outside on Thursday as well, but it looks a little cool over the weekend for evening service, so be sure to grab lunch Friday or Saturday. We have the tent up so a few raindrops will not deter!

Check our Facebook Page for daily weather updates and specials, we’ll keep that updated as the crazy Spring weather continues… but if it makes sense to be open we will open!!!

We’re back! Restaurant Week, Bistro, and More

A few weeks of the ever-popular Sunday Bistro Menu (and dollar oysters) remain… April 24th is the last!

AND… we’ll be participating in Vermont’s Restaurant Week, with a special $40 menu, starting on April 22nd. More information here.

ALSO… the deck will be open before you know it! Spring is in the air along with those pesky snowflakes. We’re hoping to be open for dinner (or at least apps and drinks) by Mother’s Day weekend, and will roll out lunch soon after. Do your warm-sunny-weather dances and look for us outside while we’re staining the deck, painting the bar, and dusting off the furniture.

See you soon! — the Peter Havens Staff
