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!

Re: “The Spot on the Dock

Even though they were busy on a Saturday evening at 6, we got a seat outside right away. It took our server almost five minutes to arrive, but when she did, she apologized and the service was top-notch thereafter. The appetizer, avocado fries with chipotle dip was yummy. The drinks were great! The entree, we both had the ahi, was perfect. A great experience!

Re: “South Burlington Life Church

Real, honest ministry grounded in the solid foundation of Christ. A small ministry with alot of room to grow. Good people, open honest hearts.

Re: “Mister Sister

Dull, dull, dull! Been there a couple of times and the place has been almost empty. The owner has managed to insult and offend many people on both sides of the very public battle that he waged with the Trans community over the name of the place. Too bad, it could have been a good place if it had someone different running the place. Now it's just tired.

Re: “Social Club & Lounge

Would rate 0 stars if i could, this place is absolute trash. Shame it's a stain on the otherwise impressive Burlington nightlife. Treat their musicians with contempt (don't pay) and sometimes violence. Not surprised if it gets shut down soon.

Re: “Drifter's

Best food for the best price in town . Creative without being overly "foodie" . The patio wasn't yet open when we were there . Hope to enjoy it when we return .

Re: “Drifter's

The most amazing food. Everything is fresh, creative and works really well together. They could easily charge $5 more for everything. You will not be disappointed, the food speaks for itself.

Re: “Mister Sister

Transphobic name, owner who won't put down his ego for 5 minutes. Sounds like a great place to hang out.

Re: “Burk's BBQ Truck

Great BBQ in the Northeast. Been going since they opened last year. Ribs are fantastic and the brisket is exceptional as well. Fries are very tasty. Always quick and friendly service each visit.

Re: “GreenTARA Space

This is an absolutely gorgeous and tasteful space perfect for the carefully chosen works of fine art. Very hospitable with a perfect hostess, designer, and owner Diane Elliott Gayer.

Re: “Blue Paddle Bistro

Ate there last night...still surprised after all these years at how popular this restaurant is. Only surprised because we arrived at 5 pm and requested a table on the first floor, they were all booked. However everyone was most gracious and decided to give us a table that was reserved for 6:30:hoping we would not need more time than that. Since it is a ride for us from South South Burlington we go there in the summer. The food was excellent the service superb, and one of the partners was running around doing everything, including very personally thanking people like us who are not regular customers for coming in.
Who could ask for anything more?
