Go here. You won't regret it. The beers brewed in-house are all awesome and the food and service were both excellent!! We had the pub chips with all of the house made sauces, the ribs, and the steak. So good!

I love this place. I have sent travelers and friends here since it opened. Brews for every taste, decent cocktails, excellent pub fare, and location, location, location. I really wish this was a glowing review, but it's not. We were last here late summer/ early fall. The first thing I noticed was the clientele- not the usual Brattleboro mix, but... More

Loved everything about this place. Great atmosphere, good friendly service, excellent food, a very good range of beers and lovely views. What's not to like? Our dinners were outstanding. Ribs for my husband and a buddha bowl for me. Wonderful flavours and fresh tasting. If you are staying in Brattleboro or passing through and are hungry, this is a must.... More

We stayed a short walk away from Whetstone, and had dinner there our first night. Not only was the food delicious, but the beer selection is phenomenal! It does get crowded around prime time, but we were happy to wait at the bar with delicious Vermont beer.

They found us a great spot in the corner, where the two states meet, :) and we sat down to split the Brewers Burger, loaded, with fries, Pub Chips, and a bowl of soup... not to mention the flight of delicious brews. Everything from Brown Bear, to Hill Farmstead to Mean Ol' Tom. Everything went down well and as the... More

Visited this restaurant with three other couples last night for dinner to celebrate the year passed and the arrival of the new year. We arrived and were told it would be a 20 minute wait. We picked a spot at the bar and began to peruse the large beer selection. My partner is a bit of a beer aficionado, and... More

We stopped here twice - once for dinner and the second time for lunch. It is extremely popular so booking in advance is recommended or, as we did for lunch, turn up just after they opened. Each time there were queues at the door waiting for a spare table. And no wonder - cheerful friendly and helpful staff, excellent food... More

The location is lovely and we were excited to try this place based on the positive reviews. We arrived at a busy time and waited about 15 minutes for a table. The cheese plate was fairly typical cheeses and was expensive for what it was. It took about an hour to get our salad and main dish (soup and grilled... More

I tried to visit here last night, but there was no parking and a line out the door. Stopped by today around 3 PM. Another line, full bar too! I did not get a chance to try the food as I was unable to get a seat, the beer was excellent. Will try again next visit.

We love this place because they make their own beer, in addition to having many different craft beers on tap. The food is good/pub fare and the view of the CT River is beautiful. Also, good music on Thursdays! Fun, cozy and cool.

Thank scappettasiren

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.
