stopping through & looking 4 good dinner spot w/3 teen boys

We are travelling through Burlington from Boston and heading to Montreal. We'll be stopping in Burlington around dinner time and wanted to check out the waterfront and downtown (even if just briefly). Looking for a moderate, fun, unique restaurant for our family - H -42, W - 42, 3 boys: 16, 14, 12. Thinking in the $15-18 per/person range or under.

Food wise, we'll have just left Boston and before that NYC, where we'll have lobster rolls, and pizza, and some Italian food in the North End, a few burgers as well.

So, any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Depends what you'd like to eat. The VT Pub & Brewery has a fun atmosphere, if pub food is to your liking. American Flatbread has a wide assortment of interesting high-end pizzas. Both can be pretty crowded.

There are many good places of all stripes on Church St.... some of the more popular being Sweetwaters (American), Leunigs (high-end European/American), Ri-Ras (another pub), etc.. etc.. Splash at the boathouse is a very informal sandwich & snack place that's right adjacent to the lake. The Burlington Bay Cafe is 1 block up College St. from there, and has a nice view of the waterfront and higher-end sandwiches/salads. The Farmhouse has relatively expensive farm-to-table fare. Trattoria Delia is our fav, with higher-end N. Italian fare.... 3 favs there are the wild boar, braised short rib, & sea scallops in sinful cream sauce.

If you all like crepes, this would fit in your budget and you could supplement it afterward with ice cream from Ben and Jerry's or a creemee (soft ice cream) from Beansie's Bus in Battery Park:
