We were exhausted and landed at Barkeaters after a very long day at the Shelburne Museum which is very close by. The staff was excellent. We needed a beer and they had a great selection on tap. We couldn't resist the Mushroom Fries and they were worth it. The burgers and salads were excellent and we had a very relaxing... More

Went with the family for dinner after a graduation ceremony. Good food with unique menu combinations. The noise level was a bit higher than my preference but maybe because it was a Saturday night?

We took our two grandchildren (ages 9 and 12) to brunch after church on Sunday. The food was really great. My grandson said I kept describing my salmon, asparagus eggs benedict as "scrumptious" and it was! My husband loved his corned beef hash, saying that the corned beef was as good as at our favorite Irish pub. Both kids loved... More

Barkeaters is ten minutes away from my house, but if it was an hour away, I would still try to make it there twice a month with a good friend (for Sunday bloodies) or for a date (not often enough;)). Johnny is my favorite bartender in town. Molly always makes me feel welcome. There is a lot of TLC that... More

A seat at the bar is just as comfortable as a table seat. The dining tables are a bit squished together and the ones near the restrooms and kitchen are busy and distracting. The food is excellent and portions are huge.

I was with a group of friends for a Sunday brunch. They recommended it because they enjoy going to Barkeaters. It was excellent. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good. We all would definitely go back again. Their brunch is popular and they do not take reservations for it. Wednesdays is busy because it's burger... More

On this trip we only shared a glass of wine and our waiter was very attentive and friendly. On other occasions I've eaten lunch there and have always enjoyed their creative and appetizing salads.

Nice atmosphere, but if you are a vegetarian, there's little on the menu. We found no vegetarian entrees, so limited to a salad and another couple of appetizers. If you are a vegetarian, there are much better restaurant choices in the area.

We stopped in for some lunch and had some of the best food we had while visiting Vermont. The waitress/bartender, Jan was super full of life and fun to talk to. Try the chicken sandwich!

This is a local 'pub' which serves great food at reasonable prices. Classic hamburger which should be sampled if possible with delicious sweet potato fries. Great salads with a range of dressings ans well as entrees. If you don't order a dessert - don't worry the waitress brings a complimentary basket of chocolate barkeater with the bill.
