I have eaten at the Scufferr many times, and it has always been good value. Good food, good prices, great service. The last two times have been with a large group, and they have managed us with grace and efficiency.

I've been to the Scuffer many times and I have to say they have consistently done a nice job. I usually go for the half price burger nights and they do not disappoint. The burger is a good size, it's cooked the way you order it (sounds simple, but is hard to find in Burlington) and tastes great. Great spot... More

Terrific varied menu, great food, fun atmosphere and terrific service! These Burlington people know how to eat well!! From appetizer to dessert, our service was prompt without being pushy and the food was very good indeed!

We stopped in for dinner and it was just as good as the first time we came in. My friends ordered the Poutine and it was amazing. The fries were awesome, and it wasn't bogged down with too much gravy. My fiancé had wings and the chili. He said the chili was great, but be warned it was spicy. My... More

We stop at The Scuffer once a year when in Burlington and have never been disappointed. We sit at the bar and always have a good bartender. They know the beers on tap, not just the name but about each one. They know the wines, which admittedly are limited. The food is good, generous portions and really tasty, fairly priced.... More

My wife, daughter and myself went to this restaurant because it was the least busiest of all the restaurants on Church street plus we have eaten there before with good results. Boy, have things changed. We were waited on right off, but it went down hill from there. After ordering, we waited for the longest time for our food. My... More

Went Saturday night after Flynn, almost empty! The waiter took for ever to acknowledge us, didn't ask if we wanted drinks, they didn't have kids menus ready and even after we finally got our menus in a next to empty restaurant it took 45 minutes. The food was terrible! Never go back

It was parent weekend at one of the three colleges/universities in Burlington and therefore the whole restaurant area in downtown was full. We were able to find a table at the Rusty Scuffer. The meal was good however the service was not so good.

My wife and I used to eat at the Skuffer at least once a week. We gradually dropped the number of visits and went back this week hoping to re-up at an old friend. The menu used to be extensive but it is now pretty meager. There are a few steaks and burgers but not much else. There are quite... More

My wife got the fried chicken and I got the shepherd's pie. We met a family from my wife's work and had a very entertaining evening! Got to sample a flight of delicious beers! My wife's fav was the Down East Pumpkin Cider.
