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 an always changing unique craft beer list and 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

We are not from the area, and found the Whetstone Station while driving through. On the bucket list was to visit New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, and this restaurant hit two of those items, as the state line went through the center of the place!...More

Nice atmosphere, great deck and views. Food was ok (chicken sandwich was plain and chicken chewy), one beer we tried was ok. Wait was extremely long (over an hour), longer than stated when we checked in.

We were given a gift certificate to an upscale restaurant in Brattleboro and thought we'd combine Christmas shopping and dinner. While the restaurant we originally wanted was not open--a Tuesday--we decided to return to the Whetstone Station after a long while. What a great evening!...More

Great chili and burgers, Whetstone IPA Session is the worst beer I have ever had, way too hoppy, maybe a bad batch! Will get the stout next time. Easy walk to the Brattleboro Museum. The first thing Whetstones does is ask for your credit card....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.
