We all enjoyed our food at The River Garden Cafe. Great atmosphere, servive, and the most amazing Creme brulee!

There are not many options in East Burke but the River Garden Cafe is a good choice for lunch or dinner. The decor is quirky with a collection of salt and pepper shakers displayed (they could do with more regular dusting). We have eaten here twice and I found the service friendly and attentive both times. There is plenty of... More

The River Garden has a long tradition in the Northeast Kingdom. It could not be closer to the headquarters of Kingdom Trails, one of the premier mountain biking trail systems in the country. The cuisine continues to be imaginative, and we have always found the service to be good. One tip is to defer dessert in favor of visiting Chappy's,... More

On July 14th we had a reservation for 4. Great day on trails and staying at the Inn at Mt View. However, our dining experience was traumatic at the River Garden. When taking our drink order, my brother ordered a local beer with a shot of whiskey on the side. The owner-bartender-waiter served the shot inside the beer. It tasted... More

We recently spent a great weekend at Burke Mountain in Vermont. We ate two nights in this restaurant with our 2 year old granddaughter and had a wonderful evening. The food was wonderful and creative. The staff was wonderful with our granddaughter. For anyone in this area we would highly recommend this restaurant.

Four of us had lunch here one day during a ski weekend. The menu was interesting and diverse, and all of us were extremely happy with what we selected. Great beer selection, very friendly service.

Menu and specials were creative. All four dishes we ordered at lunch were perfectly prepared and of very high quality. I would think dinner would be great as well. Don't miss this place when visiting East Burke, VT. It is a pleasant dining experience with quite a collection of salt and pepper shakers surrounding the room.

We had dinner here last week, after a family ski day at Burke. 3 teen boys and their parents loved our meal as well as the warm and professional service. The pork roast was tender with lovely seasonings. The Ahi tuna was declared best ever by a 16 year old gourmand, and the fresh bread was beloved by all. Great... More
