Initially we chose Whetstone because we arrived late to town and it was one of the few restaurants open until 10:00 in Brattleboro. We came for the convenience but we stayed for the service, the view, and the food. Nick is a fabulous front-of-the-house guy...More

We try to make a point to eat at at least one microbrewery while on vacation and this one did not disappoint. During several visits we had wings, burgers, chili, chicken sandwich, wrap, soup (mushroom & cheddar ale), and all were very good. The house...More

My husband and I visited this restaurant based on the reviews. The deck and view are really nice. The service and food were mediocre. If we returned, we would visit the roof deck / biergarten instead because they had live music and it seemed less...More

I was excited to try this place after years of driving by and wondering what it was like. Beer was great! Food was good and atmosphere was fun! Wish we sat outside but enjoyed the our experience. Looking forward to going again!

They do offer gluten free rolls and bread. In addition they have clearly marked everything on their menu as either gluten free or able to be prepared gluten free by request. I believe what the other reviewer meant when they... More

Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery combines a large casual restaurant and open air rooftop bier garten, with a small experimental nano-brewery, all located right on the Connecticut River in Vermont. We offer an "inspired pub fare" style menu, with everything from small bites for a few bucks to full entrees. Along with one, always changing unique craft beer of their own they offer dozens of guest craft beers on draft and specialty drinks, all in an amazing waterfront location. The unique round building has been restored into a beautiful fire-lit space with a contemporary and industrial vibe. Indoor and outdoor dining, perched above the river, alongside a steel bridge and nestled between the green mountains make the amazing location a "don't miss" on any visit through Vermont.
