Windjammer Restaurant So Burlington VT — A Tasty Treat

We liked lunch at the Windjammer Restaurant in South Burlington VT so much, we returned the same day for dinner.

Lantern at nautically themed Windjammer RestaurantThe food was fresh, most from local sources, well-prepared and appetizing. The menu features salads, including a tasty salad bar, steak and fish. Portions are generous and prices moderate. The missus says her filet mignon was the best ever. Maybe because they age their beef for at least 28 days.

The Windjammer Restaurant pays careful attention to folks with dietary restrictions and allergies. They have a gluten free menu, and their servers make notes for and are quick to check with the chef.

The dining rooms are well-appointed with a tasteful nautical theme. The booths and tables are comfortable.

The wine list is interesting and extensive. They supplement it with a variety of craft brews. I enjoyed a hearty Oktoberfest-like brew with dinner.

Service at the Windjammer Restaurant is cheerful and sprightly. The restaurant accommodates tourists and business travelers, but also has a strong local following.

The Windjammer also operates the Upper Deck Pub on the same premises. That’s a sports bar with separate menu. We’ll check out the pub next time.

About Louis J. Bruno

I studied English and psychology at Columbia College and stayed at Columbia, doing postgraduate work in psychophysiology, then teaching and doing research for several years. To keep the wolf from the door, I migrated into retail sales and management, at first for Radio Shack, briefly for Savemart, and finally for Newmark & Lewis. When N&L collapsed, I went into business for myself, providing sales, service, and maintenance of computer systems; designing, hosting, and maintaining websites; providing custom software, mailers, and database services to the real estate industry; and serving as a business consultant. My interests include writing, traveling, jogging, swimming, biking, hiking, gardening, photography, history, art, jazz, swing, country and classical music, investing, management theory, civic activism, sustainability, particularly energy conservation, good government, the environment, and technology. And more to come, I hope.
