After a day of seeing the sights we went to Whetstone Station for a micro brew. Upon arriving the place was packed as we went to the bar we lucked out as two guests were getting ready to leave. We sampled some beers which were very good. We saw some wings and onion rigs being served we had to try... More

My husband and I went for an early dinner and a beer after an appointment in Brattleboro. Didn't think anyone would be there at 3:30 PM but there were quite a few people eating and at the bar. The atmosphere is fun and young. We sat by the fireplace which felt really good on this cold and windy Vermont winter... More

The interior walls of this restaurant are just a little too high for comfortable viewing of the Connecticut River, so I'd only go when you could sit on the outer porch or rooftop. The food was OK. We found the selection to be a bit overpriced for the amount/quality.

The Whetstone is everything you want in a creative brew pub. The menu was the best we have seen and we venture to many a brew pub! Service was excellent and the place was a buzz on Saturday night. The food was outstanding, beer on par and presentation fun. Well worth a stop if you are in Southern VT.

The Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery is a great place for a meal and beverages served by kind and attentive staff. Due to its popularity, the noise level can make it difficult to have a conversation. The location accents the uniqueness of this quaint town alongside the majestic Mt. Wantastiquit and the mesmerizing Connecticut River.

Great place for a quick lunch with decent meals , choice, daily suggestions. Staff is friendly. Open fire, amazing view on the river .... Pulled pork sandwich is great and onion rings are very tasty. Little let down are the fancy metal plates that are actually cold and get your food back cold very quickly too.

Great menu and a good choice of drinks. Server was friendly and did not rush us. Place situated by the river which I can imagine would be great in the summer.

This place is great. The food is delicious and the staff was all very nice. Our waitress, Una, checked in regularly at the perfect intervals. I'm gluten free and there are a lot of options that all looked delicious. The gf bun on my burger was delicious and didn't fall apart like a lot of GF buns do. Highly recommend

Sunday night NFL divisional championship. GB vs Dallas on big screen. Place was packed but we got a table with a 30 minute wait. Service and food was great. Beer battered brisket was great ! Locally brewed beer also great !

I've been to this restaurant many times for a variety of reasons (everything from special celebratory dinners to a casual meal/trivia night). We almost always get a reservation beforehand, as it's busy every night around dinnertime. Beware, if you try to go eat there without a reservation, you probably will be waiting awhile. The waitresses and bartenders have always been... 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.
