I live in NH, but the half hour drive to VT is so worth it for the Whetstone. Especially when the upstairs is open in summer. Does it get any better than a good groove, open air local brews with a view of the CT...More

We stopped into this lively microbrewery on a recent trip through New England, and loved everything about it! First the location and decor are perfect, with great outdoor seating under the glow of patio heaters. Try the sweet potato burger as well as the other...More

Nothing special to be had here. Long wait, not enough parking, loud, mediocre service. Check out other places in B-boro

We visit Whetstone Station almost everytime we go to Vermont, it is simply that good. They change their menu and craft beer offerings several times a year. The food is simply excellent. Their onion rings, Vermont Cheddar Ale soup, and steak tips are just awesome....More

Our server was nice. The food was good. The view is very nice. Loud and it is a brewery. We do not drink so don't know about that part. We enjoyed it.

The Whetstone Station has a very wide range of micro-brews and excellent menu. My partner and I are vegetarian, so it's always a little tricky to find good food, especially in smaller towns, but the Whetstone had a great menu with a wonderful choice of...More

Lots to love about Whetstone. Let's get started: 1. Easy to find, and sits right on river's edge, with lots of windows. In summer, looks like they've got plenty of outdoor seating also overlooking beautiful river. 2. Very friendly service. Some of these country places...More

On the most beautiful Spring day of the year (FINALLY) my husband and I went to dinner at the Whetstone Brewery. First, I have to say...you must sit outside. It is absolutely the best way to experience this restaurant. We sat on the amazing patio,...More

Terrific beers, great selection of cocktails and wine, and the food is wonderful! And there are several different places to sit: on the roof or the porch, inside by the fire, or at the bar. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery combines a large casual restaurant and open air rooftop bier garten, with a small experimental nano-brewery, all located right on the Connecticut River in Vermont. We offer an "inspired pub fare" style menu, with everything from small bites for a few bucks to full entrees. Along with one, always changing unique craft beer of their own they offer dozens of guest craft beers on draft and specialty drinks, all in an amazing waterfront location. The unique round building has been restored into a beautiful fire-lit space with a contemporary and industrial vibe. Indoor and outdoor dining, perched above the river, alongside a steel bridge and nestled between the green mountains make the amazing location a "don't miss" on any visit through Vermont.
