My favorite restaurant in Burlington. Food is great and everything is clean. Kids menu is large and very inexpensive. They have a fabulous salad bar as well.

The Cutting Board did not survive 47 years by not having great food! All meats and seafood cooked over live charcoal and twin salad bars are just the beginning. Beef is excellent, cooked to your liking an well seasoned. Salad bar comes with all dinners or just salad (you will enjoy the salad bars). If you like burgers....they are great... More

We went for an early Valentines dinner the day before at 5:00. Was seated right away but that was the only good part of the experience. Husbands steak was cooked the wrong way, had to send it back. Portion sizes left a lot to be desired. My husband actually ate my bread while I was eating my steak and waiting... More

The Cutting Board has been in business a long time. Their steaks are excellent and they have large salad and fixings bars. We enjoy going for lunch. I usually get the salad bar which comes with soup, and my husband gets the small filet mignon. The soup changes daily, and the chicken tortilla and the chili con carne are favorites.... More

The food was good once it arrived so let say that. We had to ask to be waited on, for salad plates, for refills and where our food was. It took 1.5 hrs to get our food. We arrived with 5pm reservations to a not so crowded restaurant. One order was lost when everyone else was served. When she finally... More

My wife and I ordered the Chairman Chuckburger Steak, which was supposed to be an 8 oz. steak. The one my wife got was twice the size of mine. There was no way mine was an 8 oz. steak (I could have went to McDonalds and got a Big Mac with more meat on it.). When I showed it to... More

The Cutting Board is enormous...whether you are dining alone or with a large group, they really make every effort to see that you enjoy your meal. The steaks are stellar, soups delish and nice selection on the large salad bar. We had a group of about 16 people. It was a very busy Friday night. The young man that was... More
