Early, rustic restaurant, certainly on for the more historic in the area. Food is great and the hospitality is greater! Always a treat to go there.

Good food, great service. Our server Tammy was amazing, we had a group of 45 and she couldn’t have handled the situation any better. She provided us with a great experience, would definitely recommend.

Had a nice experience here for dinner with a friend. I was able to speak to the owner and found out he took over right before the pandemic hit. Luckily he made it through and people are starting to come back. He explained they have an almost scratch kitchen. They had some specials that looked really good but we just went with burgers ... read more

Very friendly staff. The food hits the spot perfectly.

Some of the best food I’ve had. If you get a chance- try their pumpkin mash, it’s magical. If you’re staying at the nearby resort(s) skip eating there and come here instead- food’s much better and the vibe is awesome.

Happy Reunion
Early Am erican Tavern in my earlier life was The Sussex Inn and I was a regular patron. I haven't been back in twenty years. What a nice surprise to rediscover this restaurant. EAT is certainly not the Inn. The menu is vast and varied. The food I have eaten there has been very good. The value is better than most other restaurants in ... read more

We are so happy to find this place. The food was excellent. The service was great. The loaded tots were great. The salmon burger didn't disappoint. So far one of the few places in Vernon worth eating at! The only thing I noticed was one of the old photographs had an inaccurate statement. Not a deal breaker. The building is gorgeous. ... read more

Tried this place for the first time over the weekend. We had the bacon bombs, chicken cordon bleu, and stuffed pork chop. Everything was really good especially my chicken cordon bleu.

We liked the place quite a bit. We were staying at Crystal Springs and were tired of (mostly) bad service and horrific prices. EAT (ha, just realized that) was about 12 minutes away. The service was very good- friendly and prompt- they weren't very busy. The pictures of the place make it look like a fancy restaurant, but it's more of ... read more

Fantastic dinner/drinks and service!! We stopped here by chance for a Saturday evening dinner...what a great find.

We came here today in our way home from visiting breweries. It's been over 2 years and we were all a bit leery. There are new owners (for about 2 years). From the service to the bartender to the meals, we'll be back. While the place could use some upgrades, the food, drinks, beer choices, and service did NOT disappoint!

Great food, great service, and the coldest beer I've ever been served! For an out of the way place (45 minutes from my house) it was well worth the drive. We will definitely be making the trip again for burgers this good!

Haven't been here in years and they switched hands recently. I love the building and the atmosphere, it was built in 1843. I ordered a beer, a shot and a country turkey panini. The beer was cold, the shot was served in a chilled shot glass and the sandwich came out hot and well prepared.

My family and I went to Early American Tavern for dinner this evening. The entire family raved about their food. The wait staff did the best they could to accommodate us.
