The staff while attentive and professional is undersold by the poor food. The salad bar, proclaimed to be excellent is a hot mess to be honest. I have been there multiple times over the past 6 months for professional meetings and each time the salad bar is in disrepair and is a disgrace. Dirty, empty containers, food scraps and staff...

Dan P, General Manager at Windjammer Restaurant, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at the Windjammer. I apologize that on your recent visits the salad bar has seemed to be in disrepair. The salad bar is a main focus of the dining experience for many and should always be well stocked, clean, and fresh. I have shared your concerns with the management team... More

This place is very popular, especially with families. Tried to go other times and finally got in this trip - with a reservation. Very nice salad bar. Fresh and tasty fish. Little bit of everything on the menu. They have a bar area upstairs for more casual dining as well.

Got in at about 1.45pm, just before they close down lunch, but both the wife and I got a chicken ceasar salad. We were served by Pierre, who did an outstanding job! Funny guy too! You could tell everything was made fresh and with real ingredients, it was one of the best chicken ceasar salads I ever had. The lettuce... More

We dined here because we like to eat healthy. Which is difficult eating out. The Windjammer Restaurant has a nice menu with healthy options and large portions. There is a very nice salad bar that comes with the meal. There is an upper pub and the main restaurant. You can. Take your time eating here, lingering in conversation and not... More

If your in South Burlington and you need a bite to eat I would recommend the windjammer. The prime rib was awesome and the bar had plenty of beers to choose from. The staff was very accommodating and was always quick to fill our drinks up.

Always good food and good service. The bar upstairs is our favorite. Prices are reasonable. Sandwiches and dinner are available in the lounge.

We chose to have dinner at the Windjammer due to the good reviews and proximity to our hotel. The restaurant is on the first level, and the bar/lounge on the second. At the restaurant, the salad bar is included with any entrée order. There's a list of local draft beers (ask to taste prior to ordering), and a good wine... More

We visited with a large extended family group. The menu was broad and varied, with entrees to satisfy every taste. The salad bar was a fine start (though it tended to get a bit backed up with diners...) Overall, Windjammer was a refreshing change from "chain" restaurants, while providing the reliable good entrees and choices that you can;'t always count... More

Met up with a good friend and his fiancée here. Came early for a drink at the Upperdeck pub and the drinks were very good. Food was spot on and service very friendly and accommodating. Be sure to check this place out for the salad boat!

We stayed in Burlington for three days, enjoying the beautiful scenery and several great restaurants. Late in our stay we learned from one of the locals that the best restaurant in town just happened to be at our hotel, the Best Western. We typically stay away from hotel eateries, but decided to give the Windjammer a try based on that... More
