About Us

Built in 1969 on the banks of Vermont's largest river, Otter Creek. The original owner, Ron Mainelli, was inspired by the New York coffee houses he had visited. One particular coffee house caught his fancy-walking in on the street level, then descending down to the dark and often smokey bar below–Mrs. Downs became Mister Up's.

We've been a part of the Middelbury community for over 40 years. Offering great food at great prices; casual dining at it's best. Nightly specials as well as seasonal specials, large salad bar, extensive beer selection, and children's menu provide something for everyone.

Mister Up's is also your premiere restaurant to view your favorite sports. Boasting 8 televisions and the NFL ticket we are sure to please any and all sports enthusiasts.
