Went here several time during our 10 days in Waitsfield. Good food and drinks. Really enjoyed the locals and the family atmosphere. Definitely going back.

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.

I have been to Ake's Den many times over the past few years, and have always enjoyed the bar food and the casual atmosphere of the place. I was therefore very taken aback by the experience I had today. My friends and I were seated quickly but had to wait a long time to order drinks and eventually our meals... More

We stopped at Ake's Den on a Monday when a lot of restaurants are closed. They have a great location right on Main Street. We sat on the deck on a perfect summer day. The food was average, not bad, not great. The service was friendly. Would I go back? Probably, if it was a Monday and not many restaurants... More

I ate here twice. The first time I had a burger and fries and beer. This went well, the burger was good and the fries were excellent. The second time I went upscale and had the striploin steak and some Irish Whiskey. The steak, while properly cooked, was tough and I usually do better for myself at home. The whiskey... More

I was disappointed when this place was closed for a couple of years before the new owners reopened it. The Valley needs a place like this for bare bones rib-sticking food perfect for a winters afternoon. Great burgers and Chili. Not exactly the most comfortable booths and it can be a bit loud when full, but you don't tend to... More
