Nice local spot

We stopped here for a late lunch around 5 pm on a sunny August Saturday. Not real busy at that time. Very pleasant staff. Our food came quickly and was quite good. I had steak frites and my wife had the salmon which was *amazing*. Top shelf drinks were strong and of good size. Overall atmosphere... read more

Barkeaters has been around for several years, but restaurants come and go, particularly at this location. Well, it looks like Barkeaters is here to stay. Our 4th visit in the past month, it has become the go to place for our friends. Burger night Wednesday night with Switchback is a favorite during the summer. The Espresso cover pork is out... More

We were tired of going to Church Street in downtown Burlington and wanted to try something new. We looked at the menus in the hotel and came across Barkeaters. We called and they were able to fit us in for a 6:30 PM seating. Parking lot is small and we ended up parking in the shopping center behind. We arrived... More

It seems good. Typical good family run restaurant... We took three different meals and all of them were uneatable: my burger and my daughter's chicken were more like coal than food and my wife's fish & chips was greasy. Avoid this restaurant!

I had lunch here on a weekday, and seemed that many local workers did that too, which was a good sign. There was room for us, but a good atmosphere and decor. Service was somewhat slow, perhaps because of the time of day. But the quesadillas were gooey and close to tasteless. Maybe burgers would have been a better choice... More

Food and service were beyond our expectations. The staff returned to the table frequently to check in and refill drinks. Can't wait to return!

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
