Re: “Battery Park

My wife grew up in Burlington and has fond memories of walking hand in hand with her dad as she walked the wall facing Lake Champlain and he calmly guided her from the wide walk there. Over many years visits Ive enjoyed 4th of July fireworks, concerts, calm sunsets, and (once - smiles), a snow covered visit where I spotted a tiny snowman perched on one of the stone supports between sections of the wall. And Beansies of course has always been a treat :)

Re: “Ken's Pizza and Pub

This place is absolutely disgusting. The whole time we were there eating there was about 10 flies flying around us. We told by the waitress that they were already aware and said it was just our booth. The manager was completely disrespectful and wouldn't even acknowledge the fact that it was absolutely disgusting and wouldn't take anything off the $35 bill. If you don't want to be repulsed while your eating your meal I definitely would suggest not going there.


Side note: Garlic bread was good (ate it after saving it from the flies)

Re: “3rd Floor Gallery

Some very talented local artists (individually) have elected to display their work here. Great for the community!

Re: “Ainsworth Public Library

A great place to stop in and use their free computers. Happy people with a warm environment. They have a great kids section too with lots of toys. And library cards are free, no matter where you are from.

Re: “Social Club & Lounge

I had a great time dancing at this upstairs club. It's LGBTQ-friendly, with a big dance floor and one of those big screens with remix music videos playing. I think it also has a pool table in a side room. The people I met there (staff and patrons) were friendly and fun.

Re: “Cajun’s Snack Bar

My family went there today and it was 2 hrs to wait for our food. The people that took order kept loosing other people's orders. I noticed that a lot of people that arrived way after us were getting their orders eating and leaving while we were waiting for our order still. We ordered 2 large fries, Velveeta mushroom burger and 2 small drinks 2 large drinks.. By the time we got our order everything was cold and soggy fries, drinks were warm with no ice and watered down. It was the worst today and we have been plenty of times before. If they continue to not do their jobs better, than I won't be back and no recommendations. The girl that my kids got ice cream from had laryngitis too.. So I hope my family doesn't get sick.

Re: “Nepali Dumpling House

Delicious food prepared to order by a friendly staff. This is a small, family run operation. Definitely worth a visit (I keep coming back).

Re: “Blue Cat Steak & Wine Bar

My husband and I LOVE Blue Cat Bistro! Tucked in the alley at the intersection of College and St. Paul Streets, this intimate restaurant does "small" and does it well. While some of the tables feel a little close to each other, the ambience and general feeling of this charming dimly lit space brings us back again and again. Adding in the beautiful dark wood grain of the bar area, I always feel that it is the type of place that Ernest Hemingway would frequent! The serving staff is friendly and very accommodating. The food is outstanding both in preparation and presentation. Of note is that they are open seven days a week and serve dinner or lighter fare into the late hours, a nice option after attending a theater event. Did I mention free parking in the good size lot right on the corner? Yes, indeedy, this is a special place for an excellent and leisurely dinner evening.

Re: “Skinner Barn Theater

A perfect evening in this amazingly restored barn. We were warmly greeted at the door, had some amazing cookies at intermission. Parking aplenty,. The production of Oklahoma felt far more authentic at the Skinner Barn then in a large performing arts center. Put going to the Skinner Barn high on your list of going to a great local performance at a uniquely Vermont venue.

Re: “Old Dock House Restaurant and Marina

What was once a fun place to take the ferry from Charlotte to and get a good meal in a nice atmosphere, has sadly lost any value based on the very poor quality of the food.

My wife and I have been coming here every two to four years since our first date there almost 30 years ago, and then getting engaged there a year later. While the quality of the food there has gone up and down over the years, it was always edible and often quite good.

Yesterday was a different story. We took our 5 year old grandson across the lake to get lunch while telling about our first date. The food we got was, unfortunately, nothing like it used to be. We got peanut noodles that had no flavor at all. We also ordered a artichoke crab dip. There was no crab we could see, a few pieces of artichoke, and greasy melted cheese, all of it swimming in grease. The pita bread points were so hard, you couldn't bite into them. I ordered fish and chips to share with my grandson. Thankfully, he wouldn't eat it. Even though it was extremely hot, it was soggy and the breading was not at all crisply. The fish tasted old. To be fair, my wife's chowder was edible, but may have come from a can.

The best part of the meal was the package of oyster crackers.

Re: “The Archives

My wife and I really had a lot of fun here. There are a lot of games (nothing new though, so don't come in expecting that). The staff was awesome and made great drinks. We suggest The Archive and the F**king Vodka Drink (and Gansett tall boys of course). A couple of games ate tokens, but over all most were in great shape and a blast to play. I'll be here in a second the next time I end up in Burlington.

Re: “Sugarsnap at Technology Park

Sugar snap closed their cafe at Technology Park leaving multiple clients without any breakfast/lunch options. They decided they were making more money catering and closed the cafe! They didn't consider all the people that depended on their place for lunch or a cup of coffee . They even blocked off the seating area which is separate from the kitchen and prep areas so we can no longer sit in the abandoned dining area which is blocked off now by two ugly fake trees and a magazine rack which shows they don't want us there.
Multiple people are reaching out to the mgt of our building to see if they can be evicted and a deli/food service restaurant that actually wants to serve us can open a cafe here! Shame on you sugarsnap!

Re: “PK Coffee

Great lattes with local milk, the Cortado is my favorite! Oh and they make their own almond milk. They don't talk about it but most of the stuff is made in house with local ingredients.

Re: “One Radish Eatery

The migas with chorizo is excellent. Super friendly and quick service, our waitress was a local and had some great suggestions for the rest of our day in the area. We'll be back!
