Enjoyed lunch with friends, and had a good meal. We enjoyed the Swiss mushroom burger (with grass fed beef), the fish sandwich and onion soup. Don't go here for the onion soup, because it's ho-hum. Don't go here for the onion rings, because they're from...More

The caliber of the food and service is consistently high at the Williston McGillicuddy's. We love spending time there on Sunday evenings.

Tasty pub food in a sports bar environment, but the real attraction is the rotating list of 20-30 beers on tap. Many Vermont microbrews, Heady Topper in cans. Worth a trip if you're a beer lover visiting the area (I'm a local and this is...More

Ate with four others and it was a mixed experience. I had the onion soup and chicken pot pie. The soup was ok but really sparse. The chicken pot pie was as described in the menu but it was really a watery concoction of dark...More
