We frequent Barkeaters! Locally owned, the small restaurant/bar has a great vibe. Plus it offers take out. For meat eaters, their burger may be the best burger in Vermont! Though other restaurants also offer local grass fed beef, Barkeaters tops their burger with a fried egg (try it, really) and really thin fried onion rings. They also offer a eat... More

Food was great and reasonably priced. Service was very good and attentive. Prices were a wee bit on the high side, but not unreasonable. A nice wide selection of entrees, salads, and appetizers

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.

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
