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.

We live in Brattleboro and have gone here frequently. In my opinion the only time to go is in the summer and sit on the upper deck for an amazing river view. This restaurant has a great selection of local brews. I've never been fond...More

The food was solid though a bit overrated in my opinion. Sometimes "less is more" and some of the meals would be better if simpler in my crazy opinion. That being said it's also a Brewery with several craft beers to down. The service was...More

There aren't many vegan options, but what they did have was very good (veggie burger and tempeh tacos - hold the creme fraiche). Great atmosphere!

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.
