We had a most enjoyable lunch here. The sandwiches were very good, the service was friendly and efficient and the prices were reasonable. We are planning on visiting again for dinner.

We sat outdoors on the patio this time, but have enjoyed the restaurant's cozy atmosphere in the Fall. It was lovely. The food was great and the service very friendly and attentive. We had the cedar-planked salmon and the organic herbed chicken-splendid! Nice wines by the glass too and a great selection of local beers.

Limited menu. Internet says $$, I would say at least $$$. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. I would suggest they remove the smelly air freshener from the ladies room, it was nauseating to be honest.

I would pick the nearby Bearded Frog or Taverna over this. It was completely fine, but there are better alternatives in the immediate area.

I visited yesterday for a late lunch and have been for lunch and dinner on several occasions. The food is always good, with nice small touches like the cranberry mayo on the club sandwich and house-made chips. Quite a few vegetarian options, like the black bean quinoa burger, and always lost of seasonal and local specials like haddock chowder or... More

Located in the village, off Route 7, this is a busy neighborhood restaurant, complete with bar and patio seating. The wait staff are terrific, the food tasty and plentiful. Don't miss it.

Had gone to Shelburne Farms (VT Cheese Tour stop), and hoped to eat lunch there, but lady in the shop there informed us they only do brunches at the Inn, and they required reservations, and so on. Instead, she recommended Barkeaters, and it was a great choice. Ate outside in their enclosed outdoor patio. Good beer/wine selections, many menu choices,... More

Warm cozy environment,friendly staff and good pub fare. Close to Shelburne Museum. We did't have a problem getting seated but it is small so a call ahead might be a good idea.
