Wrap up well.

Been here a few times and although the food is good you find that you're wrapped up in your coats because it's colder inside than it is out and I'm visiting in February.

Great Sandwiches, Chili and soup here at Ake's amid a very cozy setting in Waitsfield. You feel immediately at ease after a morning at the slopes. The atmosphere is warm and inviting as you drink some wind and have some of Ake's delicious Pub food. The service is enjoyable. Ask for Patty.

The Den has been around for a very long time though I understand it changed hands a few years ago. It is not a large restaurant, but in the summer they do have outdoor seating as well. The menu is reasonably priced and the selection is pretty good. This trip my husband and I shared a bacon mac-n-cheese and a... More

I have been going to The Den since the 1970s. When the new owners took over a couple of years ago, I was thrilled to see this establishment get new life. The food and service were initially very good. Looks like that run is over. Our last few visits have been huge disappointments, and the last one was the final... More

We stopped in for lunch with six of us. The were short staffed but server was still nice. We had den burger, black bean burger, soup, Caesar salad and BLT. Loved every meal and the ambiance. Server forgot our tableware and drinks, but we just walked up to bar to get them. No problem though. Would go back in a... More

We ate here based on the ok reviews and the fact the parking lot was packed. We got seated right away and were greeted by the waitress who took our drink orders. Drinks came right back and we placed our order. We ordered a Caesar salad that we were going to split. $10 for a Caesar salad appetizer should have... More

Really just a little roadside cafe but the burgers cannot be beat. Very easy on the wallet. Locals eat here which speaks a lot in my opinion. It is a very bare bones operation with a small bar that has a lot of local flavor. Unassuming, not pretentious and laid back, I think you will not be dissappointed.

Ake's Den was recommended to us by our Inn Keepers. It turned out to be a very nice restaurant. We did enjoy our dinner here. Their food was a little on the fancy side for me but everything tasted very good. It was just different for my taste. Over all the service, location, and food were very good.
