Active bar scene with wide selection of local brews upstairs with limited food options. Downstairs food lacks taste. We probably will not return.

With tip and a bottle of wine, dinner for 2 was about 100 bucks. The food was good and the service was good and the view from the balcony was nice. Nothing spectacular but it's nice knowing there is at least one restaurant open 7...More

Late lunch stop and we're seated in a crunched corner. Burger and salad for me, the smoked blue cheese dressing is great. Decent beers but all hoppy and nothing remotely dark. Very noisy. Wife opted for turkey wrap and orings which she said were awesome....More

Good food. Service was a little slow. Good beer selection. Great view of the river. It was raining when I went, but would have loved to sit outside and eat overlooking the river. Beer cheese soup was good. Chicken sandwich was huge. Some sort of...More

I live in NH, but the half hour drive to VT is so worth it for the Whetstone. Especially when the upstairs is open in summer. Does it get any better than a good groove, open air local brews with a view of the CT...More

We stopped into this lively microbrewery on a recent trip through New England, and loved everything about it! First the location and decor are perfect, with great outdoor seating under the glow of patio heaters. Try the sweet potato burger as well as the other...More

Nothing special to be had here. Long wait, not enough parking, loud, mediocre service. Check out other places in B-boro

We visit Whetstone Station almost everytime we go to Vermont, it is simply that good. They change their menu and craft beer offerings several times a year. The food is simply excellent. Their onion rings, Vermont Cheddar Ale soup, and steak tips are just awesome....More

Our server was nice. The food was good. The view is very nice. Loud and it is a brewery. We do not drink so don't know about that part. We enjoyed it.

They do offer gluten free rolls and bread. In addition they have clearly marked everything on their menu as either gluten free or able to be prepared gluten free by request. I believe what the other reviewer meant when they... 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.
