I got opinions on tj buckley's on chowhound a while back and decided to give it a try. we're back from vermont now so i wanted to share our dining experience and photos.
The meal was a tad pricey but the ambience was nice. the restaurant is housed in a little dining car and you have full view of the kitchen. we managed to get reservations fairly easily for a saturday night. definitely do call ahead though since they only have 2 seatings. The appetizer and salad (amazing) were great but the main courses weren't spectacular.
See attached link for the detailed review and photos in my blog entry.
Overall we prefered our meal at the similarly priced Four Columns Inn in Newfane.
