    We were pleasantly surprised! The menu wasn’t huge, but the quality of the dishes they served was outstanding! The drinks were delicious and well balanced! We held off from going forever because it seemed too “high end” compared to our usual taste, but we were so wrong! It’s beautiful inside - a mix of rustic and industrial, big open garage door to the outside seating area. Wait staff were friendly, responsive, and knowledgeable. We truly couldn’t have asked for a better night out!

    Great food, great cocktails, and an excellent staff…but please bring back the cool architectural menus! Also, let’s consider some music improvements! The mix was giving me 2013 mall-shopping flashbacks, and not in a good way.

    This was our second visit to the Village Garage, and this was just as good as the first. The place is really beautiful inside, comfortable seating, great drinks, delicious food, and great staff. I didn’t have any but they also have a comprehensive offering of beers from some of the best local breweries. It is probably my favorite Bennington stop for food and drink.

    Absolutely loved dining out at the Village Garage Distillery. The food, drinks and service were all top notch. The appetizer came out quickly and shortly after it was finished, the entrees came out piping out. My wife and I ordered Poutine to share (best we've ever had), she had the Smash Burger and I had the Grown-up Grilled Cheese on a waffle. We both agreed our meals were delicious after trying a bite of each others choice. She even liked the waffle which is a huge compliment since she normally isn't a fan. The drinks we ordered were made well and tasted great. The prices of the meals were a little on the higher side, but not high enough to prevent me from returning. Can't wait to go back and try some more delectable meals and drinks.

    The Bourbon Mac was delicious however, having lived in the South for a while now, the chicken and waffles were well flavored however the waffles could be a little refined to hold their form more and not disintegrate under the chicken breast. Overall impression was fantastic!

    Long wait for the table (our fault for arriving too early); the hostess was so very gracious and kept us updated about the length of our wait. Once we were seated, it took longer than it should have to take our order. By this time, the restaurant was clearing out. It also took long to receive our appetizers and then food. Our table after appetizers wasn’t cleared although there were staff walking around aimlessly. The waitress wasn’t as pleasant as the hostess. The latter who set the bar high on friendliness and making us feel valued. The food was flavorful. We had the chicken and waffles (double order). One of the chicken breasts was a bit rubbery and undercooked. We also ordered the ramen which was cooked well but spicy. I wanted the salmon special which sounded delicious but they ran out of vegetables (by 7:30 pm). The diet sodas were a brand we had never tried before. We grew to like the flavor which reminded me of rice pudding (flavor not consistency!) Overall it was enjoyable- although it wasn’t exceptional.

    We really enjoyed our first visit! The ambience was nice, the cocktails delicious and the service was great. We had the sour, an old fashioned and the nor’easter. For food we had the flatbread, the salmon special and the bourbon Mac ‘n cheese which was great. Loved the topping of the flatbread but the flatbread itself not so much. The salmon was okay. I’m really excited for Bennington to have this gem and wish the owners only the best. We’ll be back! Make reservations, this place is small and popular!!!

    So much potential. Great location. An interior with many repurposed cool items. Nice staff. Good beers. Good cocktails. Unfortunately it's the eclectic menu that falls short. Delivering food that is just OK enough to make you want to give it a 2nd try. And hope it delivers on such potential.

    First time there and it was an exciting experience from start to finish. To walk into the place through the opening that is a roll down garage door and to look up and see the metal arch that holds up the building—very cool. Very cozy feel and everyone seemed welcoming. The drink/cocktail menu was fun and the drinks were delicious. The burger was full of flavor and the Bourbon Mac and cheese was a definite thumbs up. Then the dessert—wow. We waddled out of there and look forward to going back.

    This was our first visit to the Village Garage Distillery. Our server, Jaime, was great. Drinks were good, many very inventive options. Food was good but could have been hotter. The menu is limited and there were a couple of specials. All of us - there were six of us - found something that we were interested in having for dinner. Because the place was packed on Saturday evening, the noise level was very high - it was difficult at times to hear others seated at our table! (But who wouldn't want a packed place on a Saturday evening!) We had an enjoyable evening with our friends. And we'd come back again.

    Nice choice of small, large plates and healthy options. Food came before drinks which was unusual, both were ordered at the same time. Outside patio was available. Would be nice to have entertainment. Looks like there is a small stage. Second time at the distillery, both times, very enjoyable !
