Gastropub

“Great American cuisine, located just off Church street. This place doesn't take reservations so on weekends there will be a wait if you go at dinner time, but you can have a beer in the beer garden downstairs to make the time go by! ”

Pizza Place
$$
“The OG flatbread pizza in the area. Often a wait but get there early and get a table. One of our favorites is the dancing heart pizza for its simplicity and nutty flavor but it's not for everyone. The punctuated equilibrium flatbread is a safer bet as well as the specials they have each day. Also enjoy the great beer selection, bar and huge tables you can reserve for your party if you wish.”

We have an upbeat, fun approach with a focus on the guest experience and genuine hospitality. Our menu features creative american cuisine and there is hardly a seat in the house that does not offer a spectacular view of the Winooski River.”
