This place reminds me of a northern Wisconsin diner...where the service & food is just as important as the atmosphere. A little gem in this small hotel town. Had a larger group and waited about an hour at the bar. Even though very busy, bartender was attentive and social. Appetizers were large enough to share and very good (potato skins... More

We found this little treasure of a restaurant from our sister-in-law that lives in Hampshire. I was so pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. Tucked away in the small town of Burlington, it is definitely worth the trip. I ordered the prime rib and it was perfect; cooked exactly the way I like it. The portion was so huge... More

Great food, cozy environment, and a Bloody Mary list with about 30 different concoctions. Went there for breakfast and will definitely be going back!

Wow! I feel like I just got home from an evening at good friends' home! Art and Alma's is great. We were told 1 hour wait, but time passed quickly as we sat in the cute bar and had a soft drink and interacted with the bartenders and other customers. Wait was only about 40 minutes. Seated at cozy table.... More
