The atmosphere is lacking, but you have a great view of the lake and can sit outside in warmer weather. The food is great. I love the creamy clam chowder. Everything is excellent! Prices are very reasonable. There's an ice cream window in the summer with really good Vermont ice cream as well as soft serve. This is also a... More

We popped in for soup and sandwiches and, while the staff were friendly, the food wasn't great. The turkey sandwich made me feel a bit nauseated, so I threw the second half away. Their breakfast might be good - I wouldn't recommend doing lunch.

We went there on a busy Sunday am when most of the breakfast/brunch places had long lines, we went into the market and we're glad we did. The sandwiches and egg dishes were delicious And the view superb. I'll be going back soon.

Burlington Bay Market is a great place to sit on the balcony and enjoy a mid afternoon snack. Good ice cream choices.
