I came in on a week night, during a solo business trip. I was promptly greeted. Dining room was half empty however I was steered to a corner table next another single guy. I was told the empty booths were 'reserved'. Strange. Once I received a menu I found most of the entrees were pub food, burgers and sandwiches. There... More

We were overwhelmed by the crowds in Burlington, so we hightailed it out of there looking for a different option. The Breaded Frog fit the bill ... probably not winning any awards for ground-breaking cuisine but you do get a good well-prepared meal along with good service an a little ambiance.

We visited Shelburne, VT to see The Shelburne Museum and received a recommendation to try The Bearded Frog. We did not have reservations, however, that was not a problem, we were accommodated quickly and professionally. The food was very good, nice portions, has a good wine selection, and reasonable pricing. I would visit again, and recommend this to anyone who... More

You know a place is good when the locals and tourists come together in a great pub/restaurant. Lots of unique items on the menu with a casual, friendly ambiance.

Although the name (The Bearded Frog) is a bit funky, the food was anything but. I'm a New Englander who's very fussy about sea food, finding that all too often it's been over cooked. The scallops here were large, tender, moist and covered with a delicate sauce. The presentation matched the quality of the food. The place was packed (Saturday... More

Enjoyed a great meal with extremely friendly and competent service on a Saturday night and yet, there were several empty tables - hard to believe. We especially enjoyed the venison cigars, duck burger and the brown sugar dusted fries - yum! The menu offered a lot of other options from light fare to full meals. We would definitely return if...

The Bearded Frog is a wonderful place to get away to for fine food and drink. Nice atmosphere and outstanding waitstaff - they really know their stuff. Food is fresh and delicious. Love the venison cigars as a starter then on to a really nice selection of entrees. The bar service is great with some great in-house cocktails. You can't... More

We have dined here numerous times....convenient location and consistently good. Haven't been in a while and was a bit disappointed. Seems like the same old menu...time for a change. No wow factor, just your average menu. Service was just OK....The best bet has always been to sit at the bar and have a burger. Not the place anymore for fine... More

We were planning a trip to Shelburne so I searched for restaurants and found The Bearded Frog. We were thrilled with this restaurant. I had the steak sandwich and my husband had the haddock. Both were excellent. We would definitely go back if we're in the area.
