We had passed Worthy Kitchen several times on our drives between Killington and Quechee. Somehow, it had never been the right time to stop. Today was the day! We drove up the hill to the gravel parking lot in front of the main entrance and made our way up the five wooden steps to the deck and double door main entrance. This got us to the lobby of the building. If steps are a problem, don’t worry, you can go the right side of the building, around back to the two handicapped spaces that are located very close the the street-level, single door entrance, (which will take you through the PT clinic) to the building lobby. Another set of double doors led to Worthy Kitchen.
As I was began to look around at the interesting, rustic setting, we were greeted by a lovely young woman who asked if we had been here before. When we answered, “no ,” she proceeded to explain the chalkboard menu and counter ordering process. A “gourmet, farm-to-table” (website) approach causes the menu to change frequently, thus the chalkboard menu. A very interesting menu it was, with choices on this day from burgers, to fried chicken, to shrimp, salads, mac and cheese, veggie burgers and more, plus 18 choices of craft beers on tap.
The space is divided into several dining areas with high and low tables, booths, and a full-height, counter/bar. Floors are wood. There is ample space to navigate throughout.
Although described as “fast food” I would not call it that at all. Everything is prepared to order, so one should expect the order to take some time. We were given a pager to know when our order was ready. My veggie burger was one of the best I have ever had. My husband’s shrimp entree and side order of mushrooms were delicious. He also loved the new beer he tried. Worthy Kitchen is definitely “worthy” of a visit if you are anywhere near here.
Two, large, single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restrooms are located in the building lobby. One of them has a baby-changing station.
There is an outdoor dining deck , facing Route 4. We will definitely be back to dine out here this summer, or inside, the next time we are up here!
As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to check a venue’s website, www.worthyvermont.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
