From the fresh salad bar to the desserts that we could not eat this was a great find. I had the best prime rib dinner that I have had in a long time. It was done to perfection, neatly trimmed of excess fat, and the price was right! Granted Burlington is a bit of a haul out to the boonies... More

We have been going here for thirty years but in the last 3 years the quality has gone downhill. The steaks are pricey as ever but we never minded paying because they would melt in your mouth. The past three times we have gone the rib eye had so much gristle we could hardly eat it. The other thing we... More

This place reminds me of a northern Wisconsin diner...where the service & food is just as important as the atmosphere. A little gem in this small hotel town. Had a larger group and waited about an hour at the bar. Even though very busy, bartender was attentive and social. Appetizers were large enough to share and very good (potato skins... More

Our party of 4 was seated just before the onslaught of others coming through the door. By the time we finished our meals and were leaving, you could hardly get through the people waiting to be seated. A popular place on a Saturday evening. Warm bread served at the table, Salad bar was excellent, the meals were delicious. I had... More

We found this little treasure of a restaurant from our sister-in-law that lives in Hampshire. I was so pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. Tucked away in the small town of Burlington, it is definitely worth the trip. I ordered the prime rib and it was perfect; cooked exactly the way I like it. The portion was so huge... More

Great food, cozy environment, and a Bloody Mary list with about 30 different concoctions. Went there for breakfast and will definitely be going back!

Wow! I feel like I just got home from an evening at good friends' home! Art and Alma's is great. We were told 1 hour wait, but time passed quickly as we sat in the cute bar and had a soft drink and interacted with the bartenders and other customers. Wait was only about 40 minutes. Seated at cozy table.... More
