I was very disappointed in their new menu! For many years they had a menu with something for everyone. If you like pork belly with is a great place for you! It's a very limited menu and is marketed towards a particular customer. However, I did have outstanding service from Julia while I was there.

Loved this place, don't walk by, stop and eat something even if you aren't hungry. Had the cheeks and chips, Cod cheeks were amazing and perfectly cooked not overdone like most battered fish. My wife had the Chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich which was great, the home mead fries are perfect and lightly sea salted, my kids had mac and cheese... More

Casual atmosphere and amazing food!!! We had a wait since they were working with a party of 20 but they were transparent and told us that from the beginning. Drinks were great, servers were friendly. I can't wait to come back on another trip!

Our servers were excellent. The food is always great. They have a great local draft beer selection. Halvorsons is one of our favorite spots in Burlington.

Went to church street with our large family and stopped here for lunch. My wife and I each ordered something different and split it. I got the spicy chicken sandwich and she got the daily special, which was a pepperoni and Cabot cheese flatbread. The flatbread was amazing and the sandwich good too. Was a tad pricey, but everything is... More

I am really sorry to write this negative review because we used to like going to this restaurant. But the whole experience was so bad. The beers were flat, the food was cold and the wait time for the food was nearly 45 minutes. Unfortunately, the manager offered to comp 50% of the bill but never apologized. When we received...

We were going to go to Sweetwaters and found out those people are liars. They originally quoted us a 30-45 min wait, then an hour to hour and a half, and when we showed up the told us an additional hour. I will never eat at that place. Not only did they seat me right away at Halvorson's but the... More

We ate at this restaurant on a trip through the NE of the US on 12 Oct. I get back to Australia and see that they have ripped off my credit card by putting through an unauthorised tip - eventhough we left the waitress (Erin) a cash tip. My bank is now investigating the charges. Beware - this business is... More

Stopped into Halverson's for lunch after church Sunday. Placed was packed, I had a good burger and Queen City Porter, which was excellent beer. Halv's is pretty formulaic, nothing out of the ordinary here, but that may be why they have outlasted most restaurants in BTV. They are the only restaurant on t he north part of Church Street, and...

The food is delicious! Everything we ordered was excellent! I dined here for lunch with a work group, but we were spread out in smaller groups at outdoor tables so as not to be a large party. The wait staff were quite slow. Not just our server - all of the servers. This was the only complaint I had, and... More
