Nice setting on the CT river with great outdoor seating over looking the river. However the food is only so so and you have to wait way too long for it. By the time it came to our table it was cold.

We devoured the poutine which was a tad salty for me but oh so delicious. The gravy was perfect in flavor and instead of mixing the cheese curds in the graby they were fried. Different but really good. I thoroughly enjoyed a salad with pickled...More

Had the pleasure of being around Brattleboro over the course of the Memorial Day Weekend. This place was excellent. Great service, excellent bartenders and the food was very good. Add this spot to your itinerary next time you're in the area.

This is a very lively place. Lots of people having a good time! The food is great, the staff very friendly, and they have their own, as well as other makers', beer on tap. The burgers and salads are terrific.

Had lunch and enjoyed it! They have several of their own beers on tap along with other local breweries, a full bar, and selective wines by the glass. The view of the river from the bar area and the open decks is quite nice. We...More

Very easy! Just get off exit 1, turn right and continue straight until you reach the traffic light downtown (about 2 miles). Whetstone is right on the water, at the bridge to NH. There’s a parking lot on either side of the... More

Due to VT law, if an animal (not used for service) needs to walk through an establishment it is not permitted inside. To get to the deck you would have to walk through the restaurant. Sorry

While Whetstone does not take advance reservations, they do offer “call ahead seating” and / or you can get on any wait list directly through the Yelp app as well.

Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery combines a large casual restaurant and open air rooftop bier garten, with a small experimental nano-brewery, all located right on the Connecticut River in Vermont. We offer an "inspired pub fare" style menu, with everything from small bites for a few bucks to full entrees. Along with one, always changing unique craft beer of their own they offer dozens of guest craft beers on draft and specialty drinks, all in an amazing waterfront location. The unique round building has been restored into a beautiful fire-lit space with a contemporary and industrial vibe. Indoor and outdoor dining, perched above the river, alongside a steel bridge and nestled between the green mountains make the amazing location a "don't miss" on any visit through Vermont.
