So this was a frustrating place ...
So this was a frustrating place to visit.  The beer selection is excellent and the wait staff is knowledgable and engaging.  The food is underwhelming and a bit pricey for the area.  All of that compounded by the bros at the bar dropping f-bombs loud enough for the entire restaurant to hear.  I get that we're not locals so that's fin ... read more

Good BBQ!
We placed an order to-go very close to their closing time (to which is my own fault - I lost track of time) but they were extremely accommodating! The BBQ we got was an assortment of meats with sides, and although on the colder side,...it was extremely delicious. Again, I take the blame as I’m sure they were closing down the kitchen.

We are local and our favorite restaurant nearby closed.  Plus once winter comes and they close the Notch road we are forced to eat on this side of the mountain.  We tried Brewster Pub and really liked it!  So excited we have a new place to go. Great beer selection and really good food - keep in mind this is a Pub, but still it was gr ... read more

COVID: The place has outdoor deck perfect for outdoor dining. All the staff was wearing their mask. Would be nice if they had heat lamps.(5/5) Price: A little overpriced for the platter ~$80 Food: Family Dinner platter- DELICIOUS. It was perfect for 4 adults and the ribs, chicken, pork, and brisket were cooked perfectly. The brisk ... read more

The food is good - love the Vermonter burger. The Southwestern Eggrolls are good but the dipping sauce is way too spicy for my wife and I. They have a good beer selection. The people are very helpful and friendly.

Stopped here after a short backpacking trip and it sure hit the spot. The pulled pork was smokey, tender and delicious. Their house brewed beers were also a refreshing treat after a long day on the trail. The service was friendly and welcoming. If you're in the Smugs area, definitely stop by and dig into some deliciousness.

First time
Nice place, friendly staff. Adhering to COVID guidelines. We had grilled artichoke - different - we usually steam them. Would have to have another for comparison. Chicken quesadillas were really good! Could really taste the smoked chicken! Give them a try!

Love this place!! As out of state visitors, it's a must for several meals. Quaint atmosphere; great local/personal beer selections and yummy pub grub. Great location in relation to Jeffersonville & Smuggler's Notch.

Forget about your diet for one day. Try the smoked chicken wings with spicy dry rub as an appetizer and the crispy chicken sandwich. I normally stay away from fried foods but this is so worth the deviation. The chicken wings are not too spicy despite its name. It's tasty and well seasoned. The crispy chicken sandwich is DELICIOUS.

Whoa! Best BBQ we've ever had...hands down. We actually eat mostly plant-based food but were on vacation in Smuggler's Notch Vt so decided to have a bit of a binge during our visit. We tried their BBQ chicken dinner last night and their cauliflower buffalo "wings" which were delicious, so decided to come back tonight for more. This t ... read more

The menu looks great and I did enjoy my food but I'm really writing this review because the mac-n-cheese was really Penne Alfredo. So you were warned if you do go there expecting some cheddar looking mac-n cheese what you really are going to be left with is a garlic Alfredo Penne.

Great Pub and Brewery! Kayla took care of me while I was there and she was the sweetest person, I’d come back just for the service. But beyond that, the food was wonderful (try the duck). The Pub has flights and an expansive list of beer on tap, though I do recommend the house brewed beer. Keep It Fresh DIPA is my new favorite dou ... read more

We ate here twice during our stay in Vermont. I absolutely loved the BBQ Sampler. It consisted of pulled pork, beef brisket,chicken, smoked ribs , potatoe salad, creamy salad and jalapeño cornbread, absolutely delicious. Meghan was our server and she was great! She gave us great ideas on places to go and things to do.

Wow...I cant even describe how wonderful this place is! Staff is amazing. Chef is unbelievable! We went 3 days in a row and even brought others there with us. The Black Hole Burger and the BBQ Burger are insane! Turkey Burger is a no go. Every single dessert is amazing! Beers are great too! Highly recommend!

One of only a few places outside of the Notch resort to eat. The food was good, the service was fast and the server competent. While not a drinker, there was an excellent selection of choices in that regard. I can imagine, while not busy the midweek night I was there, that it can get packed at times. Recommended!!

Keep in mind that 3 stars is A-OK according to yelp and this was exactly my experience at Brewster River Pub.
