The wait is pretty long, but sometimes you will luck out and get a table right away. The food is very good, and the view is amazing. The locally made gelato is a real treat.

They don't take reservations but we only waited 30 minutes on a Saturday night at 6pm. So you can wait at the bar. Indoor and outdoor seating--cold night but fire heaters seemed to keep the diners warm--we ate inside. The pierogis were out of this world. Our son had the awesome Tim burger--maple bacon AND peanut butter on beef burger--he... More

Beer choices were plentiful. Mac&cheese appetizer good, pub chips ok. Chicken&Waffles quite bad -- chicken was very dry. Waffles were cold and tasted liked they were days old. My husband had the Brat -- mediocre taste, and the fixing were not good. We waited 40 minutes for a table and another 45 minutes to get our food. I don't understand... More

We visit the Whetstone multiple times over the spring, summer and fall months as it's just a great all around place to enjoy a great meal. With warm weather the outside seating is just beautiful. Combine that with an excellent and varied menu and service that does not disappoint! A nice selection of micro brews is also available. I have... More

Great food, great selection, great beer, great location on river. Great art. Cool place. Young, hip feel. This is a "nanobrewey" that brews 7 kegs per batch. The beer menu changes so often that you receive an iPad with the beer choices with your menu. Definitely recommend.

Brew pub with excellent food and a good tap list. Upstairs is an outdoor deck with a bar and a awesome view of the Connecticut river. Downstairs is the restaurant and bar with the same view.

What a fun atmosphere at The Whetstone Station! So many things to look at while you are waiting for your food. Huge screen TV, too. Our server was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. She explained the menu very well. The burgers are soooo,..good! Each entree comes with a starch or salad. Very fresh salad and my avocado melt... More

We visited Whetstone Station Restaurant since our family highly recommended it. We were not disappointed. Parking is an issue. We parked across the street in a lot where the meter guy was walking about giving tickets to those who did not put money in the meters. Good and service was excellent and view of the river incredible. I highly recommend... More

We spent long weekend in Brattleboro and went there 4 times! We sat out on the deck and looked across Ct river towards NH mountains. It was beautiful! Food was delicious and plenty of great craft beers. I was fond of Madeline Amber and my husband favored the Whetsoner. Service was great and despite there always being Crowd there we... More

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.
