First, the Tinmouth Snack Bar is in Tinmouth, not Wallingford, as another reviewer pointed out. It is a short, beautiful ride out of Wallingford on VT Route 140 West, just north of the town triangle. I have been going to the snack bar for about 50 years, since I was a young boy. Over the years it has grown into... More

First, the reason it's the Tinmouth Snack Bar is that it's actually located in Tinmouth, 8 miles west of Wallingford on Vermont Route 140 directly across from the Tinmouth Town Offices and Tinmouth Community Center. But because the U.S. Postal Service has not had a post office in Tinmouth during my memory, the 600 residents of Tinmouth are served by... More

We're happy to report that the Tinmouth Snack Bar is open again! They have window service plus a newly-redecorated dining room inside and picnic tables outside. We enjoyed lunch there this past Saturday and we look forward to several visits this coming summer. Their onion rings are the best ANYWHERE. I also loved the fried chicken, which comes with choices... More

Most places list that the pies are "baked on premises," and I'm usually disappointed because I want them to be homemade. Here, they are. Open from around mid-May to mid-October, this place has THE BEST french fries ever and did I mention the pies? Ice cream and take out is on the menu, too. Most of the food is pretty... More

We love the fact that you can eat inside or outside at the Tinmouth Snack Bar, and that there is a playground directly across the not-very-busy street. In addition to the usual snack bar fare and "regular" burgers and dogs, they offer local pasture-raised beef burgers for a slight (and well worth it, in our opinion) upcharge. Soft serve and...

Disappointing. Ordered the ice cream sundae. The ice cream was more like iced skim milk. It tasted like it had ice bits in it and there was no flavor what so ever. Where was the cream in their ice cream? Do they even taste their product. I wonder. Asked for nuts and got about a 1/2 tsp on top. Very... More

Good old fashioned burger and ice cream shop BUT there is more... There is a menu that contains great salads. The locals all know that on Wednesday nights in the summer, before Labor Day, there are specials like meatloaf or chicken parm. Many people come every Wednesday. The milk shakes are very good and the homemade desserts are great, especially... More

You can't miss the Snack Bar for some great burgers, fries and ice cream! The owner recently put n an addition ad serves a wonderful breakfast on Sundays. Their curly fries are the best. The Tinmouth Burger is a family favorite.
