    Got there around 3-4 on Friday afternoon, it was not that busy but they were short staffed. It took quite a while to get us seated and for our order. If in a hurry check for their serving time and decide accordingly. The food was good. Got a 16 inch half and half BBQ chicken and better buffalo, both were good. The garlic bread was okay. The onion rings were great. Ordered all the four desserts on the menu but they were out of creme brulee. If you are going for brulee make sure to go early when they open. Rest of the cheesecake, fried dough bites and peanut butter pecan pie was average.

    Some visitors may call the Vermont Tap House slow in terms of service. I like to say relaxed...seriously, what's the rush in enjoying spectacular food and drink with friends? (And read on, to see how we put the service to the test!) After visiting another downtown Burlington "icon" the previous night, and leaving disappointed, I was hesitant to bring our out-of-state guest to another pub-style experience. However, the Vermont Tap House delivered on a unique and spectacular Vermont dining experience that will be remembered! Leaving the trappings of Church Street behind for a late day flight from BTV, we chose Vermont Tap House for a hearty afternoon lunch/dinner. A ten-minute wait for a table was worth every minute. We sampled brews while perusing an intriguing menu of appetizers, sandwiches, and pizzas -- along with daily specials. We settled on Chicken Pesto Cavatappi (specials menu), Roasted Pork Sandwich with Apple Chutney and Slaw, and a Vermont Cheesesteak, and not a bite was bad or wasted. It's difficult to choose the highlight of the meal because each was delicious in its own respect. The grilled chicken with the pasta was juicy and bathed in a deliciously delicate pesto that was both satisfying and subtle. With a mix of roasted vegetables stirred through, the dish was lunch perfection. The roast pork with apple chutney, likewise, was juicy and sweet, and we complemented the fries and sandwich with a splash of house BBQ sauce that only added to the savory pork. The Vermont cheesesteak was melt-in-your-mouth tenderness with caramelized onions and more cheese than a Cabot outlet store. Our server, Shirly C, was attentive and friendly...and as for that "slow" service, when our airline called to put us on an early departure, Shirly made sure we were out the door and on-time with no delay. The Vermont Tap House is a gem on the outskirts of Burlington and worth the drive from downtown and with one of the top dessert menus in the state, there are plenty more reasons to visit! We'll be back to give the sweets a try.

    Everything was solid, great drink selection, good prices, large portions, and good service. I have no idea why chilis had more people eating there, instead of here!

    We ordered the gatherer salad to share. This salad was pretty good. Apples, cranberries, candied pecans with greens was pretty tasty. It was nice they split the salad for us. We also ordered the margherita pizza. The pizza was ok. I usually love wood fired pizza and especially margherita, but the pizza didn't have any salt added at all, it tasted pretty bland. They didn't use the typical fresh mozzarella cheese, just an extra light amount of shredded mozzarella. The crust was pretty good. Then since ordering a split salad, it would have been nice to be served the salad first, instead of both the pizza and salad together. Pizza was not warm by the time we finished our salad. Lastly the service was just lacking. We had to flag down people to ask for things. No personal attention at all. When you are dropping $30-$40 for dinner you expect a little personal touch. It wasn't busy when we showed up. It was before 5.

    We stopped here after driving all day and were starving!! After choosing buffalo wings as an app., and enjoyed them VERY much. The wings were big and crispy as well as juicy...we ordered the Vermonter pizza with only half with apples. We were very disappointed. The crust was burnt on one half yet not even warm in the center. The amount of apples was laughable. In two of my pieces of pie, I had only 3 slivers of apple. The kicker was the fee that is added to the bill. We overheard another customer asking what this fee was and she said that it is posted on the door so we were aware of it. Ummmmm....not at all, so we paid the fee and looked at the door on the way out. Sure enough the note was posted, but how about telling the customer, "due to the rising cost...we have to add a ...% to your bill". Not sure if management is getting the complaints from the waitstaff about this, we hope this and another review will change the way that this policy is held.
