Have been down to American Flatbread in Burlington a number of times, and haven't been disappointed yet.

Atmosphere is warm and inviting with a great bar area to your right as you walk in, and a large open room to the left that serves as the main dining area. A big brick pizza oven dominates the main dining area, and warms the place nicely in the colder months. Outdoor seating in the alleyway is available too. This place is VERY family friendly, with a lot of kids around whenever I've been here. It's also very popular, especially weekend evenings, so be prepared to wait 30-60min for a table (no reservations). However, grabbing some pints at the bar will no doubt pass the time.

Service has always been exceptional with kind and courteous staff. What I love about this place is that they have a separate group of waiters who's primary job is to refill water glasses. I really wish more beer-centric eateries would do this, especially when there are extensive and quality beer menus offered, such is the case here.

Flatbreads Zero Gravity line-up dominates the taps, 3-4 other taps are devoted to area breweries or "neighbours" (ie. Trapp, Wolaver's, Allagash, etc), and always 1-2 cask options. Everytime I'm here I usually always stick to the Zero Gravity offerings as it is really good stuff (Especially fond of the TLA IPA, Black Cat Porter, and Solstice Gruit). Another plus is the fact that Zero Gravity offerings are usually lower in price than other breweries offered on-tap. Also have a decent number of bottles offered, but nothing out of the ordinary. Cask options have all been outstanding except for one of two I've had recently (one tasted completely of vinegar, reminding me of wine that isn't ready yet).

Food is very good with simple menus offering a number of outstanding salads and flatbreads to choose from. They also offer one daily salad and two daily flatbread specials that are usually better than anything offered on the menu, so be sure to take a look at those. This place uses really great and fairly creative ingredient combinations in both their salads and flatbreads. Personal favourites are the Evolution salad, Salsa flatbread, and Vermont Sausage flatbread.

Prices are very fair, both for beer and food, and are well worth what you pay for. However, I've noticed the specials are usually a bit more than the regular menu items.

Definitely would recommend a stop in here if you're looking for great food and great beer in Burlington. Afterwards, head just down the street to the Farmhouse for more drinks and great desserts.

Wonderful spot. THe pizza's are great as is the atmosphere. I've been both in warm and winter weather and thought the ambiance was more conducive to the winter feeling. But the quality of the beer was quite nice.
Definitely a spot to hit while in town.

The flatbread is very good, though if you don't want pizza you aren't going to have much else to choose from. Prices are reasonable and the beer is good. Nice selection of house beers and while they don't offer flights they do serve half pints if you want to try a few different things. The lagers were actually the standouts of what we had with the hoppy beers being good but not great.

Stopped in for a few beers over the weekend. The restaurant was packed but we were able to find a few spots open at the bar. Smaller bar area with a solid tap list and a cask offering. Tried a few of the Zero Gravity beers and they were decent. The Conehead IPA on cask was good and I would definitely recommend trying their cask when available. I would definitely like to try more of their beers next time I am in town.
