Stumbled upon this restaurant while dropping some friends at the train station. Greatly surprised with good ales and real good food. Definitely will visit again when in Brattleboro.

You go here for the stunning river views and for the awesome collection of beers (displayed on a IPAD menu.) The service is spotty-- for no apparent reason. The place is very popular so parking on site is at a premium- although there is ample...More

We recently had dinner at Whetstone Station for a Father's Day celebration. I tried to use their call ahead seating system to reserve an outdoor table but the hostess misunderstood that I wanted an outdoor table. We did get to sit next to a window...More

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

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.
