My husband and I stopped here for lunch on a Sunday. We had two of their beers, the IPA & Irish Red which were very good. Both of us had the shepherd's pie which was very tasty and just the right serving size for a hearty lunch. I enjoyed the atmosphere and appreciated that there were football games on in... More

Stopped in for a drink & dinner. Had Eggplant sandwich. Was very good. My friend had the Lobster Bisque she said it was amazing. Had good size chunks of lobster in it. He also had the turkey dinner which she also loved. I had the Honey Wheat beer which was nice. My friend had their home made root beer. She... More

We enjoyed the food. The service was great. Good brew pub atmosphere. I had one of the burgers. It was juicy with a good smoky flavor. My wife enjoyed the chili. We are not, big beer drinkers. We sampled the " flight" of 8 beers. We did not like any of the beers they were all too hoppy for us.... More

we had lunch on off hours. Service was fine, food was OK, not too crowded and fairly quiet. Had a good variation on the menu. Would probably go back if we ever in the area again.

This place is always crowded and with good reason; it is definitely one of the better places to go in Bennington. The food is good but the homemade desserts are even better. The beer is surprisingly good, try the Russian stout or go for the 8 beer sample. It's noisy if that's an issue for you but otherwise it's a... More

A vibrant brewery/restaurant. Service was friendly and food was ok. Place was full so it is obviously popular locally.

We stopped in for dinner on a recent trip to Bennington. The bar and restaurant area were both busy but the staff was efficient and friendly. The beer was amazing- especially the Milk Stout. Our meals were very good- especially the cheddar mashed potatoes. We got the last piece of carrot cake- and it was excellent. The menu is extensive-... More

Full of atmosphere, and used by locals as well as tourists. The menu is not huge (which makes deciding easier!) but the food is very good - so good we ate there on the three nights we stayed in Bennington. Try the mussels - cheesy, garlicky and delicious! The Yankee Pot Roast was also great. One word of warning, the... More

We're not from the northeast so really wasn't sure what to expect, but have been pleasantly surprised. With that said we needed a place to eat before heading to our hotel in Londonderry. I'm glad we stopped. I was so happy to see the items didn't list feta, goat cheese, or blue cheese. No the predominate cheese was Vermont cheddar... More
