They were a little swamped and pretty under staffed for the crowd that hit them at around 5PM, but they were pleasant enough. Our waiter forgot our beverages, and I couldn't catch him to get them before we were done eating. It took a long time for them to get us our check, too.. that aside...
I had a really yummy lobster bisque. No chunks of lobster, but still tasty. I also had stuffed mushrooms, and they were fine. Sausage and bread crumbs, more bread than sausage but adequate. My husband had the buffalo chicken salad. It was also adequate. I imagine their speciality dishes are probably better quality. Fairlee only has a few dining options, so it's fine for what it is.
Even with the delays we were out in tie for our game and our bellies were full, and that was really all we needed.
