Well worth the wait

The last time we visited Burlington we tried several times to get a table here and were not able to - they don't take reservations and the wait was very long. We really wanted to try it so we stopped in mid-afternoon on a Saturday and only had to wait about 10 minutes. (Not sure if this was... read more

We really enjoyed our dinner here, helped along by some extremely friendly nearby diners and the funky atmosphere in the bar downstairs for pre-drinks. We had been here some 4 years ago and it was exceptional - one of the best burgers I'd had with a great selection of beers. The beer selection was still good this time but there... More

We had the artisan cheese platter and burgers which were both excellent. Nice selection of local craft beers and wine. Busy place but did not feel rushed by the staff. Outside seating is a nice option.

It was a bit busy when we went to the Farmhouse on a Thursday night, but the wait was relatively short. The menu offers a great selection of craft beers and locally sourced ingredients. The burgers were great and the beet salad was one of the best I've had. Service was not what it should be in a top restaurant,... More

We have been to The Farmhouse 40+ times is the last 4 years. At the beginning it was fantastic, both food and service. In the past 2 months everything has gone down the crapper. We have refrained from posting a negative review until now, our last visit cemented our view of this establishment. The food is lackluster at best, and... More

I have been to many of Burlington's best restaurants and I have a preference for VT finest brews. The Farmhouse is a great combo of top notch VT brews, local delicacies, fresh seafood and friendly Service. I went to the Farmhouse 4 months ago and was told by Jessie that they were holding a Tap Takeover in the Spring of... More

Having read a few reviews on the place over the last few visits to Burlington I had high expectations for this place. Whilst the food was good and tasty it was in my view only average. Not the spectacular food I was expecting. Services as ok but not brilliant and I didn't feel as welcomed as I have been in... More

The farmhouse is my favorite restaurant in Burlington. It's even fun when you have to wait for a table which is just about all the time. Here's a hint from the start. Download the NoWait app on your cell phone and then you can actually monitor in real time how long it's taking for your table to be ready. It... More

I'd seen TA ranking, the reader rating in Seven Days and various reviews. I must have walked into another dimension. My burger was the highlight of the meal although "rare" was medium well at best the bun was stale. My wife's veggie burger included "rare" beans, which really don't work! The fries were well cooked but had more salt than... More
