Love to sit along the window tables looking out across the marina and bay. This time we enjoyed the twisted ham sammie which had hard ham, avacado, peppers and onions on it. We also loved the home fries with onions and peppers. Our other meal...was the The Bay Original Egg Sandwich which consisted of bacon, two eggs and cheddar cheese on a Portuguese muffin. They really take their time to make food right and it is fresh and delicious. Coffee is good also.More

Was traveling through the area doing some sightseeing. Looking for a place to grab a quick lunch. Thought we would stop in wasn't expecting much. What a nice surprise. Cute little market & Liquor area. They have a walk-up counter where you can order your...food. Nice seating area with a view. And the food was really good. Just to make it clear I would classify this as fast food.More

Overpriced. Convenient, food tasted pretty good. Prices were to high for the amount of food you get. Nice view of the bay

Nice little market for grab and go items. Good selection of liquor, mixers & condiments. They also have a deli for homemade sandwiches.

This place makes absolutely the best bisque in the area, hands down. I always want to try their sandwiches, but the bisque is so good and filling, it's my go to more often than not.

Burlington Bay offers traditional American food, but also offer up tasty lunches for vegans and vegetarians. I like that you can see the grill and that it is clean. I also think their hot fudge sundaes are the best in Chittenden County!

Nothing fancy here, but lots of solid food choices, a great view of the lake, elevated deck to enjoy in nice weather, easily the best creemes around (truly CREAMY, not icy). Fresh cooked burgers, sandwiches, breakfasts, good daily soups, all windows for inside seating (so...great views year-round). Also beer (six packs) and wine to go (boaters take note) as well as a co-located liquor store. Nice place to eat and read or do a little work in the winter. I live in the area and stop in often.More
