Review №1

Always, always happy with their menu, along the hard work they have put in during this pandemic. Highly recommend their burger, falafel dog and cocktails! Thank you Butch and Babe's!

Review №2

Of you haven't been here and you've been to Burlington, you're missing out! Best Bloody Mary and Maria ever! Chicken and waffles, and all the brunch items are a must! Cutest shop, amazing staff that was so nice. Remembered us from the food and wine festival. Get into this restaurant before the line is it the door, and they take off.Thank you for an incredible brunch on my birthday. Much love.

Review №3

I have been going to Butch and Babes for years and since COVID I hadn't been by for takeout until last Saturday. We ordered the family fried chicken meal, HS! it is delicious! My kids devoured the coleslaw and the chicken with biscuits brought me back south. If you are craving something delicious you must try the meal.

Review №4

Amazing food, great service, and the chief was singing while making our food! Highly recommend this place! Get the Dorito chicken sandwich

Review №5

Creative cuisine. Nice ambiance. Open kitchen. Try the mac and cheese pancake appetizer. Maple polenta with veggies and kale salad bowl were also delicious. A little pricey, but worth a visit.

Review №6

Came on a Sunday and sat outsideVery attentive and friendly staffFood was excellent. I had the smoked chicken and waffles. It came with spicy syrup that wasfantasticCool vibe and musicWill be back

Review №7

Food was awesome with lots of vegetarian and vegan options. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are great and coffee refills were quick and plentiful. Service was nice but a little slow, not the best spot for a quick stop. Will definitely be back.

Review №8

Can we add to the already many raving reviews. From sitting down we had our small dog no problem great service good menu a little funky but good service quality food was delicious everything was fantastic obviously cause every review is good, keep up the good work guys I couldn't help but adding another good review,we will go out of our way to come back to this restaurant!

Review №9

One of my favorite restaurants in the Burlington area. Food wise, there is a mix of comfort food and asian dishes. If you are a fan of ramen, this place serves the best every thursday night.

Review №10

The hot dog varieties are all super tasty and I adored the hamburger salad!

Review №11

One of the best meals I've ever had. The Mac and Cheese Pancakes with Habanero Maple Syrup were an unexpected but beautifully executed balance of flavors.

Review №12

Went to Butch and babes in Valentine's day. They were not taking reservations because they were full but at 6pm they still had some room at the bar and the high top tables. We sat next to the garage door and watched Vermonters try and parallel park with mixed success. During the summer this would be a great place for inside/outside seating. The quaso dip was interesting. It was really thick and cold. It was suppose to be spicy but wasn't. It worked for me. I like trying new things but if you were expecting gooey warm spicy cheese you will be disappointed. The kale salad was the highlight of the menu. The crunchy chickpeas tired together the salad and gave it a crunch. The fried chicken was a perfect kids meal for adults. The light batter and juicy chicken, fluffy corn bread, purple cole slaw, pickles, and special mustard was executed perfect on a school like cafeteria tray. This place is highly recommended but read all the reviews so you know what to expect.

Review №13

Go here!! The food was so great and the service was as good as the food. Definitely get the Mac and Cheese pancakes. I had the falafel burger and it was so good! I'll be back again soon.

Review №14

Creative and welcoming menu with loads of good stuff. The Mac + Cheese pancakes we're pretty magical. The mix drinks are tasty and evenly mixed. Peewee is in the bathroom!

Review №15

Excellent Mac and cheese pancakes and falafel dogs. Friendly service, creative menu and open seating make this a top restaurant pick.

Review №16

Nice variety especially of vegetarian good. Nice beer and cocktails.

Review №17

This might be the best restaurant in Burlington. Warm and casual (but not too casual!), friendly staff, and utterly delicious food. Hot dogs, fried chicken, it is all so good. My one complaint is that they recently shrunk the size (and price, so it is fair) of their Major Tso's cauliflower bowl. WHY?!? I think it's the best item on the menu and I get it literally every time, as do many other customers. It does not seem wise to keep patrons from spending more money on the food they like the most. Please bring back the jumbo size cauliflower!

Review №18

Just a great place within ever changing menu (which is a bit small) but never run of the mill. The restaurant is cozy, not too small of very popular.Off the beaten path of the downtown but worth the time to Google.

Review №19

It was a small wait on a Friday night. The staff was rushed but super friendly. I got the fried chicken plate, son got the burger, wife ordered two starters. My son killed the burger, said it was great. I was kinda disappointed that the chicken wasn't on the bone, but it was delicious nonetheless.

Review №20

Cool vibe, good food. Slightly pricey for the amount you get.

Review №21

Great General Tsao's Cauliflower and Carrot Bisque; great fried chicken too. As seen on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" FirstVtbusiness that Guy Fieri has had on the show.

Review №22

Great food with a cool twist of different cultures. Really nice selection of beers and cocktails. Only con is we had to wait quite a while for service at the bar.

Review №23

We loved this restaurant. The food was great and the vegetables were fresh. The sauces and syrups were amazing and I just had to try the mac and cheese pancakes which were really delicious. The owner stopped by and talked to us about the name of the restaurant, as well, and we had stellar service.

Review №24

Amazing, friendly service! Booked a group family share brunch for my sister's bachelorette for 14 guests. The restaurant was extremely accommodating and patient with all requests.Chicken & waffles I highly recommend! Also, the fresh juices for the champagne mixers were absolutely delicious. The entire presentation was gorgeous. Thank you Butch & Babes again! We hope to be back soon, once we drive to Vermont again this summer. Cheers!

Review №25

Loved the food and atmosphere. Chef Jackie is awesome with flavors.

Review №26

If you can tolerate the ONE hipsters that frequent the joint, this place is a great option for delicious, unique meals. You can taste the freshness of the local beef in their burgers and they make all of their own sauces and dressings, and it's all surprisingly affordable!

Review №27

I love the local vibe. Goofy and quirky details make this space homey while keeping a clean modern feel. The menu is farm-to-table and changes slightly depending on the season and the chefs inspiration. They have the best locally-made ramen style noodles on their ramen night, along with other spectacular specials. There is something for everyone. From gluten free options to their mac-and-cheese pancakes, everyone can enjoy their thoughtful menu.

Review №28

Great vegetarian and vegan selection, terrific cocktails and friendly service. Didn't take a picture but the vibe inside is laid back and cool--especially like the old photos on the wall. We got there about 30-minutes before our reservation time, and were seated immediately with a smile. Definitely going back!

Review №29

This is one of the most consistently awesome places to eat in Vermont. Creative menu that never fails! We love Butch and Babe's!

Review №30

Good food! A bit pricey but good flavors and portions. Nice variety of drinks

Review №31

A fave in Burlington . Interesting menu. Delicious.

Review №32

Super friendly! Great food! Awesome drinks!

Review №33

Unique, delicious food. Not the "same old same old." Cute, quirky decor. Really wanted to try a cocktail but I was driving. Next time!!

Review №34

Bachelorette Dinner was perfect here!! Super cute place, delicious food, and great service!!

Review №35

It's okay. Not bad, not great. There's nothing special here, and nothing wrong. Average brunch fare, cocktails are okay, food is tasty but uninventive. Gets an extra star for good service and reasonable prices.

Review №36

The menu and atmosphere were the epitome of trendy. The food tasted fine. The mac and cheese pancakes were excellent, the meatballs were unique, the burger was kind of dry. The fries were good and the ramen was very spicy. Downside- it's very expensive. Upside- they boasted farm fresh and local ingredients.

Review №37

The mac and cheese pancakes were the best. The mushroom bites were second best. Everything was amazing.Will be back.

Review №38

Very trendy and nice neighborhood Restaurant in the Old North End. I really love the flavors and the pairings they have with beverage. Laid back with very outgoing staff. I really enjoyed going there and hanging out! Glad they're located in my neighborhood!

Review №39

Always a pleasure to visit for tasty dishes, friendly service and stylish digs!! Jeff & Nicole - Owner's at Easy as Cake, Colchester

Review №40

Limited menu plus seasonal specials equals everything offered being exceptionally executed and refined. Chef's fusion of his traditional ethnic heritage and regional, southern influence, as interpreted by his gifted and whimsical mind, makes for a satisfying and always memorable dining experience. The atmosphere at Butch & Babe's is at once, casual and elegant, and as inviting as it's Bohemian Old North End neighborhood. Affordable excellence in an approachable environment. My favorite Burlington bistro!

Review №41

A great place! On New Year's Day, we had brunch at Butch + Babe's consisting of 20+ people. They were very accommodating and the food was very good. The waitstaff were attentive and friendly. On other days of the week breakfast, lunch and dinner are available. Recommended.

Review №42

Tasty tasty food, awesome chef and a very friendly staff! Owned and cheffed by women!! Casual atmosphere that's good for a beer and a hot dog, a hot date, or a high quality sit down dinner. You won't be disappointed by the service or the food. Pinky swear. I

Review №43

We went as they were opening. We brought our two littles with us and met up with friends there. 100% accommodating, really made sure we had everything for the kids. The food was good, the kids loved the Mac & Cheese pancakes and the fries. I really enjoyed the burger, and our friends had the famous corn dogs and the cauliflower with a burger. All in all great time, nice atmosphere, attentive staff. Definitely worth finding parking for.

Review №44

Tasty bites worth the price

Review №45

Great service, amazing food including a great vegetarian set of options. It's a small menu but you cant go wrong throwing a dart at it.

Review №46

Great atmosphere. Local beer options, and great cocktail menu. Staff is very nice and food is amazing. Good range of prices on the food, all tasty. Have specials on certain nights of the week. Recommend the falafel dog.

Review №47

Amazing food, amazing service, 10/10!!

Review №48

The food is tasy and the portions are good. The only complaint I have is that their drinks are not consistent. Sometimes they are great and other times they are watered down. The solution is to get one of their many beers

Review №49

Comfortable, relaxed atmosphere that specializes in comfort and vegetarian food. Nice little gem that is clean and fair priced. We had the burger and nachos and the fries were delicious!

Review №50

I really like this restaurant.The macaroni and cheese pancake is as hilarious as it is delicious. Their mixed drinks are on point.That being said, I don't think their menu has changed in the past year.If it's your first time it's great. But going multiple times isn't exactly rewarding.

Review №51

Love this place. Chef is incredible.

Review №52

Awesome food. Continuously changing menu.

Review №53

Excellent dinner date spot. Great food and atmosphere!

Review №54

Fun spot, unique. Here is what I loved: honey and sesame pork shoulder. I also love the 2 dogs and fries, oh but the waistline.

Review №55

This restaurant is amazing!! Every meal I've ever had here has been mouth-watering and I love their take on fusion food from different styles. Thursday ramen bowls are TO DIE FOR!

Review №56

It's the Sunday brunch I absolutely needed! The kitchy-Danish interior set the mood for a delicious breakfast sandwich with a side house-made donut. We've already told our friends to go back!

Review №57

One of the most enjoyable cocktail lists in the city, and the chicken and waffles were the best I've ever had. The service was somewhat slow during the peak dinner hours, but I'm not sure if that's common or was an off night. I left totally satisfied and will definitely return.

Review №58

Loved the vibe and Mac and cheese pancakesss! Must try

Review №59

First time. Its sad, I really wanted to enjoy this place. The atmosphere is well done and the menu sounds cool and creative. But I and the others with me did not enjoy the food. On the other hand the drinks were good. Maybe it was a off night for the kitchen. Will give it another try someday

Review №60

Try their donuts. You won't be disappointed. I almost got a second but their grits were so filling I didn't have room. The grits are ace by the way. We went here for brunch and loved it. It wasn't very busy. The staff were friendly, attentive, and professional.

Review №61

Great brunch, breakfast and lunch. The menu is a very creative mashup of American comfort food with ethnic influences, and a respectable portion of the menu is gluten free and/or vegan. The grits are really good and cheesy. The pancakes looked excellent. Gluten free waffles!

Review №62

Lovely staff and great food. They have a rotating beer list of some great craft brews as well as a dip of the week. As far as the dip goes, I've taken a few chances on dips that sounded iffy for my taste and they were always superb. My go-to is their Focaccia burger but I've at least tasted nearly everything on their menu and all of it is just magnificent.

Review №63

Really good food. Very busy, but not a long wait, friendly efficient staff. I will continue to go back.

Review №64

Beautifully renovated bar with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The owners are a delight and the selection of drinks is outstanding.!

Review №65

Unique brunch dishes that were quite delicious!

Review №66

Had dinner here with some friends. Excellent, delicious and interesting food. Loved everything about it!! Can't wait to go back for brunch!

Review №67

Butch and Babe's is a casually elegant restaurant tucked into an Old North End neighborhood. The food is comfort food that has been taken out of its comfort zone and into a strange new world. I had General Tso's cauliflower with jasmine rice and spring pickles. I'm not normally a cauliflower fan but the server recommended and I'm glad I tried it. It was sweet, sour, a little spicy, and just plain delicious! My husband had the hot dog plate with a Chicago dog and a kimchee dog. He liked them both but he especially loved the kimchee dog for its inventiveness. My four year old son had mac & cheese pancakes with maple syrup, a combination sure to please any kid (and probably most adults!) We will definitely be returning!

Review №68

Awesome atmosphere, cosy bar, inventive and mouth-watering grub, served by people who care about your experience. You can tell that the Chef loves what he does.

Review №69

Great veg food

Review №70

Nice cozy place with good vibes. Happy staff, happy food, happy prices! Fried chicken Thai was very tasty.

Review №71

This place has really upped it's game. New chef, new attitude. Very friendly, and some interesting choices on the menu. Enough affordable items that I would call it a great local hangout.

Review №72

Great food at a good price.

Review №73

Terrific brews and even better bar food. Definitely check this place out!

Review №74

I had the bohn mi patties asparagus side paired with a Saison. Everything was perfectly balanced and flavorful with courteous and attentive service at reasonable prices. My friend got the Monday night special: a delicious local draft and a well topped hot dog for $5. We both got strawberry rhubarb tarts with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Everything was perfect. Delicious and no complaints.

Review №75

Most of the food was very good, but the prices were very high, the wine bottles that the water comes in were visibly dirty on the inside, and the burgers were overcooked and cold. $47 for a burger, a beer, a very small dessert cocktail and some chips and dip was more than I would have been willing to pay if I had known it was going to come to that. The beer selection was brief and not organized intuitively, and the typography on the menu was painful, not that many people would notice right off the bat. I'm sure there are people in Burlington who would absolutely love it, though.

Review №76

Wonderfully friendly staff and absolutely delicious food from Chef Evan and our local farms and purveyors

Review №77

Butch and Babe's is, hands down, one of the top three restaurants in the Burlignton/Winooski area - and at prices that are actually reasonable. So proud of our neighborhood joint. Seriously check it out.

Review №78

It was good.

Review №79

We live in the area but hadn't tried this local spot until last night and unfortunately, I don't think we will be returning. It took several minutes for someone to acknowledge our presence and seat us and then another 10+ minutes for a server to come to our table (we were pretty close to walking out). Then it took another 10+ minutes for our beers to be served. The staff was rushed and very disorganized. The $5 beer and hot dog is a great deal (Sun & Mon nights), but the hot dogs were nothing special. We would've ordered more food since we were both still hungry, but we were afraid it would take forever so we opted out. With all the great dining options in BTV and Winooski, would recommend looking elsewhere.

Review №80

Great change of pace for food. Service is super friendly and the food is great. The aesthetic of the the place is very comfortable as well.

Review №81

Such a great meal!

Review №82

The food is on point and so is the staff!

Review №83

Really good food but I feel the price doesn't match the portions. The cocktail I had was so full of ice that I finished it in two sips, so also overpriced.

Review №84

Excellent food, atmosphere, and cocktails. Friendly wait staff and unique flavor combinations. Always a pleasure!

Review №85

Great, creative food. Warm and efficient service. Excellent cocktails and specials. One of our favorites in town.

Review №86

Just amazing food and service exceptional. I consider as an icon of north Burlington

Review №87

Fun place, great service, good food in a relaxed environment. Love the specials like the Monday hotdog and beer for $5. These are not regluar hot dogs, they're way more interesting: kimchi dog, falafel dog etc.. each day of the week as different theme. The place is always friendly. Easy parking all around the area.

Review №88

Food was good. Service was good. Definitely worth a try.

Review №89

The atmosphere is awesome and the interior is cool. The food presentation is subpar. You can make the meals yourself.

Review №90

Excellent menu, great beer. Choices and lovely prople!!!

Review №91

Great comfort style food, but with somewhat of a twist on the classics. Good drink selection as well.

Review №92

Good food and friendly staff, small menu but good variety of flavor

Review №93

A bit spendy, some unique foods that can be truly amazing. I had general tsos Califlower that was to die for

Review №94

I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the experience: the food (gastro-pub style, but still relatively fresh and healthy); the drink selection; the service (professional, genuinely friendly, and available); the price (likely the best price:quality ratio in Burlington); and the ambiance!I will be returning frequently!

Review №95

Interesting and yum menu items. Weird decor. Tight when busy

Review №96

Lots of fun and great food!

Review №97

Mac n cheese pancakes. What else is there to say? Service is always excellent and the food is delicious. Vegetarian/vegan options as well!

Review №98

Excellent brunch very friendly waiter and a seat right by the open floor-to-ceiling window. Definitely a repeat visit is in order.

Review №99

My cocktail was perfect & the Mac + Cheese pancakes we're just as I had remembered from my last visit to Burlington.

Review №100

Different combinations of tastes for simple and very reasonably priced meals.
