    Mussels are killer. And they serve the Heady Topper, just the best beer in the world.

    For the drinks people: order the "802" Old Fashioned, you won't be disappointed.

    NY Strip was way overpriced, served cold, & cut up. I don't need anyone cutting up my steak especially if I'm paying $35 for it. Service was friendly but slow. Decor was nice. Drinks pricey but good.

    Try the Barbecue Poutine - it's delicious! (Granted, you can't go wrong with poutine, but still...)

    Acceptable compromise when the more popular Farmhouse is oversold. A generally locavore menu, and some nice drink specials.

    Poutine is delicious--cheese curds are like butter, but the portion is huge. Best mignonette sauce for oysters I've ever had.

    The 802 Old Fashioned is perfection.

    Appetizers at the bar, delicious. Butchers board, spicy almonds and free Vermont cheese for checking in.

    Nice space. Friendly bar staff. I was told the burger was their signature. It was nothing special. Fries were pretty good though. I would still come back to try some of their other offerings.

    Brunch is amazing! Get the candied bacon waffle with poached egg and hollandaise sauce you will be in food heaven! For lunch the three cheese grilled cheese is delightful. Great outdoor seating. Love

    Tasty Caramel Pot de Creme comes with shortbread that has candied BACON in it!!

    you've done wrong if you're here for brunch, and don't get the candied bacon waffles

    We came back for brunch, in their new downtown location. Waffle and poutine were sublime! Better share the poutine, though. Portions are huge!

    Must order hot oysters and cockles if available!!! Must must must.

    They have a great beer in a can called Cain's Finest Bitter that goes wonderfully with Chartrouse.

    Best burger in town, especially if it's Tavern Tuesday. If its in season, the lamb burger will send you to the moon.

    events in the Blue Room are great! Also, this Tavern is not only great for the beer and wine selection, but the speciality cocktails are off the charts! Read more

  • Ed A.

    Try "The Mansfield Cocktail" wild mushroom infused gin, balsam infused vodka, celery bitters, St Germain liquor (elderberry) w/ a twist. Like a meal in a cocktail!

    Ed Adrian · March 30, 2011

    If you line the double burger the lamb burger will blow your mind

    Menu is very limited, then the waitress comes back after a great amount of time has past to tell me there are NO SCALLOPS! How long did it take her to figure this out???????? It was too late to order,

    Great wine list! Try the tempranillo from La Mancha (Spain) to pair with meat dishes or the flavorful vermentino (from the island of Sardenga, Italy) to pair with seafood. More wine tips:

    Ooohhhh AND the bacon candied almonds...simply sublime!

    Amy Moreau · September 14, 2010

    Amazing!! Go for the cheese board and the butcher board! Grey Gardens cocktail is the way I started the evening here!

    Amy Moreau · September 14, 2010
  • Esther L.

    Order the small plates and you won't be disappointed. The charcuterie portion is pretty generous and so are the steak tartare and the plate of Vermont cheeses. Loved the chard and the almonds, too!

    Esther Leibel · August 13, 2010

    Atmosphere on the screened in deck is very nice. It over looks the Winooski River and a ton of greenery. I had the squid dish to start and it was very tasty but the mussels were very dissapointing.

    Clair Gutierrez · June 2, 2010
  • Scott G.

    Great lamb, butcher block is a great app to share.

    Scott Gale · March 25, 2010

    Don't pass up the frites 'ketchup' it's apple-y and I would gladly eat it off of a 2x4.

    Go to Bluebird Tavern. If it's a Tuesday, order the mussels for $10 instead of the usual $14. If it's not, start with some oysters, and then get the most unusual thing(s) on the menu. Read more
