Upon entering the former McDonalds, one feels the bar is slightly sterile. Small 10 seat bar upon the rear along the entry wall and a large expansive room of tables elsewhere. Nice rustic market feel with a small portion of the kitchen exposed, lots of wood and stone.

Bar has 16 or so taps, many very good local and many national craft brews including at least one from Hill Farmstead, Rock Art. Bottle list has equal parts local, including some limited options from Lawson's and Hill Farmstead and voltage bottles.

Food menu has lots of local sourced meats, cheeses and veggies. All options well constructed and full flavored. Service was friendly and attentive although slightly distracted as many employees socialized on the slow day.

A nice vibe unique to this town. Good options on draft and bottle are the star, though the bar area is a bit small for long term hanging out. Food was good but pricey. (911 characters)

My guess is review below is from competition or someone who has a bone to pick with place. Came up from MA with family. Awesome place. Great food options. Nice beer menu. Cool beirgarten in rear as you wait for table. Loved it. Nice people. Waitress was a tad slow. But food was yummy. Atmosphere happening. Would like to go back again with just adults and drink more and share diff apps n entrees.

Highly recommend this place. (439 characters)

The most overrated restaurant in Burlington.

Blah food, expensive menu, poor service, bad acoustic.

I hate going there, but it's your best bet for limited releases on draft. (177 characters)

Awesome spot. Friendly service. Was even packed on a Monfay night. Hill Farmstead and Lawson's on tap, Heady cans. Lots of other good stuff. Burger was delicious. A must stop if in Burlington. Only complaint is that $17 is a bit steep for a burger, especially a small one. But the beer prices seemed just fine. (310 characters)

Great selection of beer. Decent food. Downtown location. What else could you want?

Go early, if you can. Got there at 4, it was packed by 6 (Wednesday night). Great beer selection, particularly VT beers, frequent rotation. Can't talk about the entrees, but the appetizers and salad I had were above average (blue cheese toast: a wasn't crazy about the sweet and savory, but others at the table loved it, charcuterie: above average, nothing daring, mushroom and chicory salad: best of the bunch, well seasoned, good combination of greens and veggies). Service couldn't be better. Knowledgeable server, came back when needed, but not too often. The only other minor kvetch was the atmosphere. A bit on the boring side, nothing to separate it from the run of the mill trending gastropub. A bit loud, too. Prices were reasonable and they do 6 oz pours.

Worth a return visit. (873 characters)
