“If you're in Burlington well worth the short drive”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

Great experience, thoroughly pleased with the food; the portions were good size, reasonably priced and plated well. The owner came out when I ordered a Hefeweizen, knowing that if poured incorrectly can make a huge head on the beer.

Would recommend to everyone in the greater Burlington area taking the short drive out to Essex Junction!

( another plus no deadbeat 20-somethings begging for money while checking email on their smartphone)

“The best restaurant in Vermont!”
Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

We ordered the chicken wings for an appetizer and they were out of this world. Amazing! We also ordered the smoked pork with cheese grits and broccoli. The dinner was excellent from the beginning to the end. I wanted a sea breeze but they were out of grapefruit juice so the server ran to the gas station to find some. He wasn't successful but his efforts were duly noted. A little pricey but well worth the money. I don't mind paying for an excellent dinner. I can't wait to go back

“Love this restaurant. Chef-owned.”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

I have dined at the Belted Cow in Essex Junction 5 times and every time has been excellent. The menu is not extensive, but every single item is outstanding. Ambiance is quite good, but not intimate. The wine list is very good for those who appreciate that. Expect to spend at least $50/person including everything and feel that you got an outstanding meal. We had the wings (unbelieveable), the hangar steak (delicious), and the salmon with creme fraise and risotto. The chef is very vested in the menu. Just go... you'll remember this restaurant as a very good experience. The place begins to clear out around 9pm.
