The menu is centered on friendly food whereby it's cooked in a manner which infuses local with comfort. As with any of similar places just like this one in Vermont towns like this one, the food is fresh, the food flavorful, well presented, and with meaning. This place attracts locals who appreciate it and are drawn by attentive waitresses, friendly... More

I can always count on a delicious meal at the Antidote. Service is great, ingredients are fresh and they mix a great cocktail. Not over priced.

The Basin Harbor Club recommended Antidote for a dinner away from the resort. We are very happy we made the decision to go "downstairs" and experience Antidote. We arrived at 6:30 and had a booth outside the bar area and were ahead of the music. We had an excellent hostess and waitress. They made the evening fun! Three out of... More

I had the blood orange Martini which was great. My turkey burger was excellent and the taco's were good. Our table had 5 of there homemade desserts which all tasted great. Go for the food not the atmosphere as the restaurant is set in a basement.

I may be a an old fuddy duddy, but I like to be able to converse with the other people at my table. If you are dining while there is live music, it is very loud. I do really like the menu. Truffled Parmesan Fries!

Was looking for a place for an early dinner while traveling to Burlington. Read the TA reviews and decided to give Antidote a try. Very glad we did. We were early so didn't encounter music or noise issues mentioned in other reviews. Food was well prepared. The fried calamari small plate for example was perfect: the calamari was not tough...

Great food and drink -- with unbelievable dinner specials - well worth the trip for dinner and beer! It's a little hard to find, but worth the effort

My first visit to the Antidote was for a work related celebration. I had heard so many good things about the food, so I was looking forward to trying it out. I was not disappointed. We ordered a basket of the Parmesan truffle fries for the table. They were so good. My carbonara dish was outstanding. Next time I will... More

Or you'll miss a great option in Vergennes. It's dark in there, but way nicer than the outside and they do have outside seating. Good selection of craft brews with some of their own. We had the Angry chicken tacos which were very good along with a side of Mac and cheese. I might have been happier if the idiot... More
