We stopped here for cold drinks, i.e. cold beers, on a sweltering hot day in Burlington. They did have outdoor seating with parasols, but it was way to hot to sit outside, we wanted the air-conditioned interior to cool off a little.
We explained that we only wanted drinks and did we need to sit at the bar, the hostess said that no as they weren't busy right now we could sit at a table. Our server on the other hand obviously had issues that we only wanted drinks and not food.
I ordered the Beetlejuice, a wheat beer, it was lovely and cold and refreshing. They didn't have quite a few of the beers that my husband had been interested in, they were out of quite a lot of beers on the menu, whatever he did chose in the end he did enjoy. Our friend had wanted the shandy, but they were out of the beer that they made the shandy with, no alternative was suggested and he ordered a diet pepsi in the end! Afterwards we wondered why they couldn't just make the shandy up with a different beer? We asked the server this when she brought our drinks back, she said they could, so why didn't she suggest this then??!!
We didn't see her again, we had to flag her down when we wanted more drinks, she passed by but never glanced at our table to see if we needed anything else. Our friend decided to order one of the strong fruit beers, but he only wanted a small glass, he ordered a small glass and she brought over a large glass. Again when we wanted the check it took a while to get her attention.
Would I visit again? Possibly. The beer menu was fairly long and varied, and I'd like to give a couple of the others a try. Having said that though they may not always have them available as they were out of quite a few on our visit. The food menu looked like standard pub fare, but would probably work quite well with a few beers. Service did leave a lot to be desired though so that would put me off returning a little bit.
