This was the third time we attempted this "well meaning" restaurant, striving to be a somewhat elite dining experience... it just fails every time. Not that it is without merit. It's relatively comfortable, it can be a "nice dinner out" however... the food is consistently "so-so", lack luster, relatively average... but the price tag is always that of a pricey,... More

Fantastic place for burgers in a attractive dining room or private tables in the bar. The rest of the menu is solid.

As a party of six we were seated in one of the open ended booth in the restaurant which was ideal for our group. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The food was excellent and the service satisfactory. The waitress could have made more of an effort to explain the menu and the dishes when they arrived. Having said that... More

I came in on a week night, during a solo business trip. I was promptly greeted. Dining room was half empty however I was steered to a corner table next another single guy. I was told the empty booths were 'reserved'. Strange. Once I received a menu I found most of the entrees were pub food, burgers and sandwiches. There... More

We were overwhelmed by the crowds in Burlington, so we hightailed it out of there looking for a different option. The Breaded Frog fit the bill ... probably not winning any awards for ground-breaking cuisine but you do get a good well-prepared meal along with good service an a little ambiance.

We visited Shelburne, VT to see The Shelburne Museum and received a recommendation to try The Bearded Frog. We did not have reservations, however, that was not a problem, we were accommodated quickly and professionally. The food was very good, nice portions, has a good wine selection, and reasonable pricing. I would visit again, and recommend this to anyone who... More

You know a place is good when the locals and tourists come together in a great pub/restaurant. Lots of unique items on the menu with a casual, friendly ambiance.

Although the name (The Bearded Frog) is a bit funky, the food was anything but. I'm a New Englander who's very fussy about sea food, finding that all too often it's been over cooked. The scallops here were large, tender, moist and covered with a delicate sauce. The presentation matched the quality of the food. The place was packed (Saturday... More

Enjoyed a great meal with extremely friendly and competent service on a Saturday night and yet, there were several empty tables - hard to believe. We especially enjoyed the venison cigars, duck burger and the brown sugar dusted fries - yum! The menu offered a lot of other options from light fare to full meals. We would definitely return if...
