We went for some afternoon oysters and wine upon arriving to Burlington on a nice winter day. The place was packed early afternoon, so we sat at the bar. The oysters were great. The wine selection was ok. I was not impressed with the service, but I expected as much visiting a college town and tourist city.

Cozy and courteous. The atmosphere is like a home in the woods or on a hiking trail. The beer list is excellent, filled with many Vermont and North East breweries. Every time I visit Burlington I make sure to go here. It is best for lunch as the line ups are nuts for dinner. However, if you find yourself just wanting pub food, they do have a lower level with a fire side pub and the same beer list.
20:07 28 Feb 19
We had a nice meal and they were able to seat our large-ish party without a long wait. Server was very helpful re gluten free options. A little pricey for lunch, but delicious!

Visited Burlington for the 1st time from Nevada when we thought we'd give this place a try, and I'm glad we did! Definitely the best burger I've ever had and it went perfectly with the local soda I was given. The service was phenomenal as well. Would recommend to anyone visiting Burlington
03:45 19 Feb 19
Wow! This place was great! I came here on a trip to Wisconsin, and this was a major highlight. The burgers were delicious, service was great, and the waiters and waitresses were all very nice and super friendly. You won't regret coming!
02:05 13 Feb 19
Great beer selection and fun little places. The prices aren’t cheap but you are in downtown Burlington so there’s no surprise there. Fresh food was great with some interesting takes on classic dishes. My favorite was the “dressed greens” that were an option with my burger. Monster side salad with carrots, beets and sunflower seeds tossed in a very light vinaigrette. Yum!
12:52 11 Feb 19
The burger was tasty and so were the mussels. Same with the onion rings and the beer we had. Honestly, nothing to complain about here. Plenty of food options and a great craft beer list. Can’t go wrong.

We dined at Farmhouse to celebrate our wedding anniversary while visiting Burlington. We had a wonderful experience. Our appetizer was a blue cheese toast, drizzled with honey. It was a perfect balance of funky and sweet. I had the featured burger with a salad and my husband had the fish and chips. My burger was juicy and perfectly cooked and the fish was so tender with delicious house made tartar sauce. And both plates were unexpected - not your typical burger & fish and chips, but elevated to a new level. They have a great craft beer selection as well and a nice cocktail list - both of which we explored and enjoyed. We were there on a busy Friday night, and the place was hopping, but we still managed to get seated at a table for 2 within 5-10 minutes. I would check this place out again, especially to see their seasonal offerings.
12:29 24 Jan 19
Great spot to hang out and grab a beer and a bite to eat. The ever-changing selection of beer on tap never gets old and is always top-notch! Some of the friendliest staff around.
01:00 19 Jan 19
The food was great. I love that they offer the option of getting the burgers on kale rather than a bun. Did feel a bit nickel and died with a $0.95 up charge for it, but...whatever. My son said the Mac & cheese was amazing. He would know, Mac & cheese has been his "go to" for most 19 years.
02:16 13 Jan 19
Wonderful lunch. Had 1:00 pm reservation. Seated promptly. Party of 5. Staff most attentive. Lunch special fried oyster salads were a real treat. Check out the seafood plateau. Beer selection impressive. I rate as just about the best down Burlington restaurant.
23:25 06 Jan 19
This restaurant came highly recommended and they weren't kidding! It was packed for a weeknight but we had quick attentive service. Everything we had was delicious! The server suggested some awesome local wine too. Would definitely return!
14:56 20 Dec 18
My husband and I found this place in our guidebook and decided to visit for dinner during our honeymoon. Sitting by the row of glass windows was a little chilly but the waitress was amazing. I loved the selection of kombucha and unusual soda flavors like blackberry rosemary. It's nice to be able to have things besides the unhealthy sodas most places offer. I loved my oysters and the Mac and cheese entree. My husband got the meatloaf and was very happy with it.
16:25 08 Dec 18
Great local food. Everything was great from the shellfish to the pork as well as all of the veggies and salad. The beer selection was great I even got a Head Topper! Staff was great and lots of fun. Great location right off the Church St. Marketplace.
20:31 28 Nov 18
I come to Burlington once a year but never stopped into this place until this year. This will now be a mandatory stop. They have a fantastic selection of locally brewed craft beers and the farm to table food is just really exceptional. Some people might say that the prices are a little steep, but I would argue that this place is definitely worth every penny. The service was also beyond reproach. I can't wait to come back next year.
17:40 17 Nov 18
Great little place downtown, at least the parlor downstairs... Very cozy & warm, staff was super friendly and helpful, very knowledgeable on both food & drink (have Aaron describe any beer to you & tell me wouldn't want to try). Would highly recommend
03:04 10 Nov 18
Excellent place for beer and local food. I have been coming here ever since I decided I was going to move to the area. I have had the burgers every time I have come here, and have yet to be disappointed. They have a extensive beer list, local and international. One of the best beer places in Burlington. They are a busy restaurant. I would recommend reservations if possible. Or it is possible you can wait up to a hour+ for a table.
01:27 09 Nov 18
Consistently excellent food with a focus on local ingredients sourced by name. Great cocktails and extensive beer list too. Very accessible from downtown, gets very busy on weekends, so expect a wait. The downstairs lounge is a great option if the upstairs dining room fills up, it's super cozy and you can order everything from the regular menu in a more relaxed service environment.
18:18 06 Nov 18
Went here for an anniversary dinner and was absolutely blown away! While the wait (9pm on a Saturday) was long, the service was excellent, and our server John was AMAZING; he took great care to make sure the entire evening was perfect in every way! If I could guarantee him a raise, I would; I can't stress enough how special he made our date.The food is farm to table, with lots of options for any palate, and a truly exceptional draft list. This restaurant is a "don't miss" if you're in the Burlington area!
13:37 22 Oct 18
Great place to get a bite to eat with some great local brews on draught. I got the bacon cheeseburger and fries and they were delicious. Quality of the meat was good and the bacon was a nice thick cut. The fries were up there as far as fries go. I love good fries and those were fries that I fell in love with. They don't skimp on the amount of fries either. The bartender was pleasant and she made some great recommendations for beer. I just wished she offered samples. Glad her pick was good.
23:26 20 Oct 18
Great farm to table style eatery using Vermont grown and made foods and beverages. Burger was just right with a perfect bun and pickled onions. Fries were crispy and tasty. They had homemade mustard, ketchup, hot sauce and a mayo sauce! All these are great. I stuck with the hot sauce! Then there was the chocolate stout cake for dessert. Not too rich and heavy but light with great consistency. Finally, they have a wide offering of craft beers and local wines. I have been away from Vermont a couple of years and was glad to have the chance to have The Alchemist beers Heady Topper and Focal Banger. Thanks Farmhouse for a great finale to my most recent Vermont visit!
10:40 19 Oct 18
Loved it! Beer was excellent, food was fresh and very tasty. You could taste the farm fresh beef and greens. Not your traditional burger. Extremely juicy and full of flavor. Their side salad was delicious. My macaroni and cheese was awesome, but I was jealous of my husband's burger.
18:18 12 Oct 18
This place was recommended to us in one of the local shops. The food was excellent. They were crazy busy with a 1.5 hour wait to sit inside. We opted for the patio and were seated right away. The food came quickly.
19:32 11 Oct 18
Had a fantastic meal experience here. Even though the beer selection was fantastic, we started off with a pair of delicious Old Fashioneds, a dozen oysters (YUM+) and some burgers and salad. The place was quite busy on a Friday night but at 5pm we got seated right away inside. By the time we left there was a line and the outside was full. Would love to go back for some beers!
00:14 29 Sep 18
Great service, cool atmosphere, great food and beer selection. We each ordered one lunch menu item with the intention to share. I got a salad and my boyfriend got the man and cheese. They actually brought 4 plates with each half portion arranged beautifully as if we had both ordered two things! That kind of service doesn't happen just anywhere.
02:48 26 Aug 18
Everything I had from here was absolutely delicious. All the dishes were so creatively thought out. The restaurant was very busy and they still brought out the most perfectly cooked meals. The ambience was a bit loud but fun. I loved looking at all the industrial light fixtures and the staff was very nice.
21:38 20 Aug 18
Let’s say this before anything: the food, dessert, tap list, and ingredients are absolutely phenomenal at this restaurant. We arrived around 6pm on a Monday and I thought the emphasis on beer taps and farm-to-table foods would mean an adult crowd. Wrong. There were a ton of kids here. Varying ages, varying table sizes. Granted, we did get here early in the evening on a Monday but I think it’s worth noting just how many kids were in the indoor dining room. In hindsight, the outdoor seating may have been a little better to avoid this (unless you love kids or have your own kids and would like an adult meal).Back to the food and service. Helpful staff and seriously fresh ingredients. I got the Baller Burger and my wife got a turkey burger with side salad. Everything was excellent, even the candied beets. To top it off we had the special waffle & maple syrup a la mode dessert. It was top notch. My drink was a local double IPA. In short this place has amazing food.

I've been a couple of times and each time my medium rare steak was more medium well. Pretty disappointing. Mashed potatoes were excellent... But I was expecting a regular steak house size portion when charged 9 dollars for them. I want to like this place so badly but haven't found reason to.read more

01:15 01 Feb 19
The Guild Tavern has some excellent food and a decent atmosphere. The prices are high, but the food was very well done to meet the standards one would expect with those prices. If I had to pick anything to criticize about the food, the steak could have used more seasoning, rather than relying on a side sauce. The dressing for the salad and the sauce for the oysters was heavy handed with the vinegar. Other then those things the food was excellent. The atmosphere is relaxed, for the prices, one might expect a bit more of a fine dining experience then what is delivered, however it is Vermont and in a good way it gives a relaxing, rustic feel. The downside was the service. Our server was extremely slow and often passed the table without checking on us, we would have to get his attention to get drink refills. If not for the other staff, not sure if we would have ever gotten our drink orders or food. When ordering desert, it took at minimum ten minutes to get our order taken, then it seemed like a much longer time for it to arrive. After the desert, we asked for a final drink and the check, the drink arrived but the check never did. After seeing our server appearing to be checking out for the night, I finally had to go to the bar to get our check and pay(This would have been fine if he brought the check with the drink and let us know he was leaving, but he did not). The manager was apologetic and did her best to make it right. It is frustrating to spend this kind of money and get terrible service. I begrudgingly left him half the tip I would have with at least somewhat decent service and gave the rest of the tip to the bartender. Would not mind coming back for the food, but the service needs to step it up if I ever come back.read more

Had a fantastic NYE dinner there. Steak was amazing, and my date's gnocchi was very well cooked. There are two reasons I'm not giving this review top marks.1. On the cheese plate we ordered, none of the accoutrements were evenly proportioned. We had to ask for more jam because we only received a smear on the board.2. My date ordered a second glass of wine and we had to send it back. I had still been working on my first glass and had drank about half. When my date's second glass came out it was at the same level as my glass- -half empty...we asked if there were different sizes or if they had ran out of the wine we were enjoying. Out server didn't have a valid reason as to why she served it to us. It was a clear mistake that could have been easily avoided. She came back with after pouring more into the glass, but it still wasn't as full as the first.read more

We had the steak for two and tuna tartare. The steak meal is great; perfect portions for sides to split and salads before the meal (you each get your own salad of choice). Steak cooked perfectly and cocktails were great/refreshing as well. We stuck to whiskey cocktails. Service is generally wonderful. Tonight seemed a little off for some reason in that one respect, but overall a great experience and food/drinks to match.read more

I was surprised by how much I liked the Guild Tavern. We sat at the bar which was tended by a great bartender. There were a few unusual drinks on the menu and we tried one that was actually really good. We both ordered burgers. One was perfect. Mine was way over done. I asked for rare and got medium well done. It was still good Just not my preference. But overall great and the wait staff were all perfect. With apps, drinks, beers, burgers and tip we spent $120. Well worth it.read more

Great food & space! Finally was able to get a place to sit after only a 15 minute wait. There's always at least a 15-20 minute every time I go, sometimes it's been almost an hour and that is a good sign to me. For a small restaurant with great food, the wait is understandable. The drinks are a bit pricey but taste amazing! I'll definitely keep going back. It's one of my favorite places near Church Street.read more

Hmmmmm. Went there on a Thursday night in the early Fall of 2018, and the place was full. Now, I know that one visit doesn't always tell the story, but ....Bottom line, good luck getting to sit. I got my order to go, went around the block a few times, then paid and scooted. It, a burrito, was delicious, but I'd rather have sat and savored the whole experience.All in all, yeah, it's all the good stuff others have noted. The staff was swamped but smiling.
