On this trip we only shared a glass of wine and our waiter was very attentive and friendly. On other occasions I've eaten lunch there and have always enjoyed their creative and appetizing salads.

Nice atmosphere, but if you are a vegetarian, there's little on the menu. We found no vegetarian entrees, so limited to a salad and another couple of appetizers. If you are a vegetarian, there are much better restaurant choices in the area.

We stopped in for some lunch and had some of the best food we had while visiting Vermont. The waitress/bartender, Jan was super full of life and fun to talk to. Try the chicken sandwich!

This is a local 'pub' which serves great food at reasonable prices. Classic hamburger which should be sampled if possible with delicious sweet potato fries. Great salads with a range of dressings ans well as entrees. If you don't order a dessert - don't worry the waitress brings a complimentary basket of chocolate barkeater with the bill.

Stopped here for dinner on a Wednesday evening. The place was busy but the service was still great. They have a nice area of outdoor patio seating. They have a decent selection of beer and a good selection of basic bar food. Wednesday night was burger night, offering a burger, fries and a local beer for $10 bucks. This was... More

Ate dinner at Barkeaters on a recent stay in Shelburne. We ate at the bar, since we did not have reservations. The daily soup special, squash- apple bisque was wonderful. The burger special of the day was very good. Other main entrees served to patrons sitting next to us, looked delicious.

Very peaceful and a bit like an English pub doing really nice lunchtime food. Delicious soup and salad, very fresh salad and a light dressing. Also the burger was very delicious and the fries are simply to die for. Have never had fries like this that tasted so good. Service was very good, friendly, efficient and welcoming. Good prices.

We frequent Barkeaters! Locally owned, the small restaurant/bar has a great vibe. Plus it offers take out. For meat eaters, their burger may be the best burger in Vermont! Though other restaurants also offer local grass fed beef, Barkeaters tops their burger with a fried egg (try it, really) and really thin fried onion rings. They also offer a eat... More

Food was great and reasonably priced. Service was very good and attentive. Prices were a wee bit on the high side, but not unreasonable. A nice wide selection of entrees, salads, and appetizers
