An excellent place for lunch .

Our lunch was excellent. We might have had dinner there except they are closed on Monday. Perhaps next time. The wait staff was professional and also very friendly. We enjoyed it.

We met another couple for dinner at Barkeaters last Thursday. The food was outstanding as was the service. Lobster risotto was chock full of claw and tail meat, and there was a delicious crab cake on the top. Very good value. Steak frites were cooked beautifully and the Haddock was excellent as well. Highly recommend this restaurant!

This is an informal but fairly upscale restaurant. We stopped in here for lunch on our way home from Burlington. They have a very good menu with choices for every kind of palate. My husband had the Fish & Chips which he said was good, and I had the Crab Cakes; the waitress warned me that this choice did not... More

Disorganized waitress was rude and dismissive to us while fawning over regulars at the next table. Did not check on us after our (mediocre) meal was served. She gdropped the bill on the table and was visibly annoyed when my husband complained that he wasn't satisfied with the service. For the first time in 30 years of dining out with... More

My daughter has raved about this restaurant for some time. We finally had a chance to visit and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and had great suggestions about the wine list, as well as the menu items. We had the seafood risotto and it was fabulous. I think it may be one of the best meals I've...

Most of the people dining the night we were there were locals. The food was good. Recommend looking into whatever the house made pasta is for the day.

Went with my wife and baby for a late Saturday lunch. Menu is American food, burgers, fries, soup and sandwiches. We each had the special soups, parsnip and pear for me and seafood chowder for my wife and split a basket of sweet potato fries. Food was very nice, and good value for money. Service was ok, though I found... More

I stopped at this place over the weekend, for lunch, and can't wait to return and try their dinner menu. The Beet and Goat Salad was fantastic! Loaded with diced, roasted beets, fresh VT Chevre, maple walnuts, dried cranberries and fresh greens. The balsamic dressing was delicious: freshly made and well balanced. I opted to include the grilled chicken which... More

Have only done lunch several times. Menu is fairly diverse. Wish they would feature local products and wild fish. Atmosphere is nothing special - one long room with tables on either side. Bar area seating has taller tables but again, not much atmosphere.
