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)

Strong game with 20 different beers on tap, including multiple Hill Farmstead. Small pours are fantastic, allowing you to drink a few without putting yourself and others in danger.

Heirloom tomato salad top-notch, charcuterie plate good but not great.

Probably expensive for Burlington, though as an Acela corridor guy the prices didn't make me blink much. (358 characters)

Farmhouse has an incredible selection of beer. The tap list was pretty good, but the list of bottles and cans was truly impressive. Food and service were both good, although the food prices have gone from expensive a few years ago to outrageous today. The acoustics could be better, as it was only about half full and already very noisy. Overall, I'd say it's a great place to have a bite and some great beers - if you can afford it. (437 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)
