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.

We live locally and go to Barkeaters for dinner on busy nights and for lunch on occasional weekends. It's a solid place--consistently good local food. I'm not sure why it doesn't elevate into a "date night" place or a "special occasion" place. We like the food; the wine list is decent; the bartender is friendly....Still, I recommend it to anyone...

We went in around 4 pm , it was myself,my husband and our infant(almost 2) . We were seated right away, a table away from the only other couple in the place . They brought our son a high chair and menus. Suddenly a different lady from the one who sat us, asked us to move because of our child... More

Barkeaters is our favorite local restaurant. The food is excellent with incredible nightly specials. The Osso Buco (a special) is to die for and we've never gone wrong with the Filet Mignon or the Coffee Crusted Pork Tenderloin. The Seafood Risotto and the Crab Stuffed Haddock win high marks too! Aaron, our favorite bartender is attentive and always makes us... More

Jan was our server at Barkeaters. She was very knowledgeable with Gluten Free menu items. The restaurant is small and was filled with local people-business and folks just eating lunch. I was able to have a grilled turkey/cheese sandwich on an outstanding gluten free bread. The lunch menu includes salads, specialty items, burgers and salads and soups. The service was... More
