After a very enjoyable experience a year ago, we decided to return to the Barrows House. This visit stated with a couple drafts from their brief but craft intensive list of beers. Since they had tapped out of the porter on the list that I was interested in, I decide to try a 14th Star Valor Ale ($6) from Burlington,... More

My wife and I had drinks and dinner at Barrows House. What had bee a charming inn dining room has been transformed into a setting more suited to New York. Bar is large, modern and unexpected in small Fermont village. Service was good but food was average and comparatively expensive.

We had dinner at this restaurant one night while staying here for two nights. Before dinner, we enjoyed a cocktail while sitting by the fire pit on the patio which was perfect and romantic on a cool fall evening. My husband and I each had the rib eye special with a brandy lobster meat sauce which was beyond delicious, but... More

Wow! I have been eating myself around the USA on Pub Chips and these ones...... AMAZING!!! (Please. No comments on how round I am getting on chip! Lol) Waffle-cut and a nice sharp dipping sauce make this "snack" worth a visit. They have an ever-evolving cocktails menu and the dinner specials are always fresh and a little edgy. One of... More

This restaurant truly surprised me, while passing thru looking for a place to have dinner we were originally drawn in by the outside fire pit and dining on an evening that would have been truly wonderful to dine under the stars. Once inside we were originally disappointed to learn that reservations had been made by others to dine outside for... More

We had a reservation and were promptly seated. The restaurant was not very busy- perhaps 30% full. Our server was pleasant and cheerful. But, something was wrong the night we visited because is took over an hour to receive our food. My request was for a simple burger, cooked medium well. This eventually came cooked as requested and was flavorful.... More

Very good appetizers. Scallops were just ok. Burger was big and very good. Simple but delicious desserts. Service was excellent.

Hello Skiingmoondancer, We are very sorry that you felt we were pricy. Our chefs source quality ingredients and sometimes that leads to a higher price point. Thank you again for trying us out and we do look forward to serving you again. The Team at BH More

What an outdoor setting!!! It was a lovely late summer evening. So picturesque and perfectly Vermont!There were 15 of us ranging in age from 4 months to 88 years! The staff could not have been more accommodating. The menu was fabulous including a meatloaf special that was to die for. A must take if you are in the area!
