Our Shellfish is exactly the way it came out of the shell and as many of our vegetables as possible come from our own garden, or the gardens of our neighbors. We trim, season, prepare, and cook everything ourselves, creating the most delicious steaks, seafood dishes, and pasta/chicken/vegetarian dishes you will find anywhere.

Dot's REstaurant, Wilmington VTDorset Inn Restaurant
Dorset, VT

In 1796, The Dorset Inn welcomed its first guests - travelers en route to the major markets in Boston and Albany. For the first 100 years, the chef relied on the Inn's backyard population of chickens, cows and the vegetable garden for the ingredients in each day's meals. Later, the neighboring farmer supplied fresh Vermont milk and cream while Thomas Hanley's general market was the source for poultry, meat and vegetables. At the Dorset Grist Mill, established in 1876, grains for baking and the country's only source of granola were purchased for patrons.  Now completely refurbished, The Dorset Inn is renowned locally and nationally for its gracious, welcoming atmosphere and exceptional cooking.
