A welcome change to the sea of big box stores and national chain resturaunts.

Mcgillicudy's is in the Maple Tree Place right next to Mexicalli. It's in a mall setting in a nondescript building, but that's ok, becasue it's a pretty darn good business inside and only 5 minutes from Burlington International Airport.

Great local, regional and nation craft beer tap list, plenty of televisions with all of the games on. We sat at the bar and the service was top notch. I had the burger made with local grass fed beef that was outstanding.

In the McGillicuddy's chain, here's my take on the Williston one. Pretty good vibe, clean, ample space. Bar area is nice. Taplist rotates fairly well and is pretty much the same as the one in Essex Junction (Five Corners). They try to keep Heady here at all times, but seem to run out of it, pretty quick. Though I like this place for me, I do find it to be fairly dark and would rather stick to the McGillicuddy's in Essex Junction since it's closer to me. But my very first time I was ever in this specific one, they had bottles of HF's Everett that day, which floated my boat to the heavens. However, every time I went back they never had HF again, weird, but it is what it is.

Nice place to watch a game. Broad tap selection, mostly local.
