“Classic diner in the heart of Castleton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

The Birdseye diner is a renovated 1940's building that looks like the original classic diner that it was. The inside has 11 vinyl booths, green Formica tables and the traditional rotating counter stools. The menu is extensive, with the kind of diner food that is a classy version of the original. You can enjoy the ambience of a diner without compromising on your meal - offerings include their specialty burgers and many choices of sandwich, meatloaf and fish & chips and clam strips. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is hungry and in the area.

“Sweet little diner in Vermont !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

My husband and I always try to find diners when we are traveling. This one is great. I got the meatloaf special which was amazing with homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. My husband got fried chicken. The diner was very clean and what you would expect with lots of charm. The service was great , very friendly atmosphere!

“Good for quick lunch!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

We love diners and needed a quick lunch so of course we had to stop. The food and service were very good. My only complaint was that the staff could have chased down the flies that were in residence! Very annoying!!
