Hosted a corporate party for about 700 people. Nectar's helped pick the bands (Freeze a Peach and Kat Wright) and the pre-party dinner. Excellent people to work with, great location and venue.

I was recommended to go to Nectar truly for their poutine. The meal I had wasn't bad. Certainly the portion size was good. They take a unique approach to the poutine, so don't expect your traditional poutine when you go. They have a pretty laid back atmosphere and have music there many nights of the week so you can always... More

If it is a late night snack you are looking for this is the place. Been going after last call for years - French Fries and Gravy are to die for!

A Vermont institution - Home of Poutine south of the Canadian border. Plus it is the downtown spot for local music.

For years my band played at Nectar's, they are located right on Main Street and have the best location for live music in Burlington, VT. If you are looking for the next great act out of Vermont, this is the place to see them! Oh yeah, and the Gravy Fries!

I went to an evening party at Nector's recently, upstairs at Metronome, and definitely enjoyed myself. The first surprise was that there were two female bouncers. Wow. I have eaten in the downstairs restaurant before, and was well satisfied, but this is the first time I have been upstairs so I thought I would write about that. The waitstaff and... More

You can't go wrong with a late night stroll past Nectar's and picking up a box of Gravy Fries. I have tried other places and no one tops Nectar's. All their food is great and vibe is good.

Anyways back to the point the food here is awesome, their nachos are awesome, their burgers are awesome and so are their drinks. I go for trivia night with friends and theres nothing like it...
