We did not want a full dinner, so we sat at the bar. Bartender made a great Bloody Mary. Ordered a snack at the bar that was very good. Has a beautiful view from bar area and people very friendly. Would go again!

The food is pub food but good, and the view is beautiful sitting outside. My only complaint was the cost of a glass of wine - $8 or $9 for a mediocre wine is a lot. I know it's a brewery so they focus on...More

This place is right on the Connecticut River. You can watch the occasional boat go by and gawk at the riverbanks while you eat. Definitely try to sit outside (they have heaters) or request a table near the windows. I had a couple different dark...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 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 make the amazing location a "don't miss" on any visit through Vermont.
