After being ignored at Vermont Pub and Brewery, I went to Church Street in search of dinner and was not disappointed. Although extremely busy, the staff was very attentive and made the experience a pleasant one. The quality of the food was fine for what it was and the atmosphere was excellent with plenty of tvs around for watching football.... More

The highlight of this visit was seeing Bernie Sanders walking down the street in front of the restaurant. We ate in the outside area. The weather was nice and everyone, from the hostess to the server, was super nice and did a good job getting our food to us. It was the food itself that was not as great. We... More

We ate outside on a beautiful day so I can't speak to the decor or anything. I'm rating it just average because I got a cheese burger and order ordered it Medium Rare, but it was essentially well done. Otherwise I would have rated it higher as the service was good and my mom's salad was excellent. The wraps that... More

We stopped here on a busy saturday and it was worth the wait. I had the california wrap, my guests had caesar chicken wrap and fiery chicken wrap. We all enjoyed the sweet potato fries and the friendly staff.

We were in town for a college visit to UVM and church street was just a short drive. We were directed here by some locals and they didn't steer us wrong. It was a nice early fall day so we sat outside drank switch back ale on draft and had a very good and affordable lunch.

We stopped at the Church Street Tavern for lunch. The hostess and servers were running around and we kind of got lost in the shuffle waiting for a table. Pretty confusing setup for a first time visitor. We were told it could be 5 minutes or 15 to 20 depending on if people came back who they were holding tables... More

Love this place! We bring our kids here all the time and are able to relax and take in some games. Drinks are amazing, food is good especially the wings but not to mention the jalopeno cheddar soup. Such great comfort food in a great atmosphere always with lots of patrons keeping it lively.

After driving from Quebec and settling into Burlington, my husband and I went out to explore Church St. Very lively area! Stopped in Church St. Tavern for a quick bite to eat and was not disappointed. Only waited maybe 5 mins for a table (got seated right by the window which was great!). Surprisingly good chardonnay for a pub. I... More

CST seems like an institution; basic burger and sandwich offerings and constant TV behind the bar attract a certain "sports oriented" crowd. Wish they had better breads and rolls for their meals, my Philly cheesesteak said it was on a baguette but in fact it came on a softie grinder roll- so typical for Vermont. Still, it's an OK place...
