Dining in the Northeast Kingdom

When visiting the Northeast Kingdom, you are bound to get hungry. Luckily, the NEK is a foodie’s paradise. From fine dining, to diners, to farmers markets, there is something to please every taste bud! The towns of the kingdom are dotted with local country stores where you can pick up a quick snack or freshly made sandwich - or even an infamous pizza if you stumble upon Parker Pie in West Glover! Parker Pie is a local favorite, along with Miss Lyndonville Diner for a traditional Vermont diner experience and Lago Trattoria if you are in the mood for Italian. The Kingdom is well known for craft beers, spirits and farm-to-table offerings. Just let us know what mood you are in and we can help you with suggestions! 

Of course our favorite place to dine is right here at the WilloughVale Inn at Gil’s Bar & Grill. Gil’s is casual and cozy, with a view of the lake and a variety of light fare, entrees and drinks.  Have a cup of French Onion Soup, a Caesar salad, Burger or Flat Iron Steak, we trust you will not be disappointed – and be sure to save room for dessert!

Gil’s is open this winter Thursdays through Saturdays from 5:00 – 8:00pm and the bar opens at 4:30pm. In addition to our regular dining hours, we will also be serving dinner January 15, 2017 and February 19, 2017. We hope to welcome you to Gil’s during your next visit to the Northeast Kingdom!
