Best food I’ve had since moving to Vermont. Filet mignon cooked to perfection, great service, and certainly worth the price. I will absolutely return!

Salad bar was great, had to send my wife’s
Steak back twice.
Came back horrible , they never asked how it was and never commented on the fact she did not eat it.

was amazing per the usual, it was Valentine's day so it was super busy. The waiter was around a lot and the food came out quickly. The salad bar was fresh as usual and the fresh bread was warm.

Went here with my Fiance for an early Valentines Day date and it was the BEST meal I have had in a VERY long time. I had the Vegetarian Ravioli and it was amazing, mouth watering and I wish I was able to eat more of it. The salad bar was good, everything was fresh and plenty to choose from. Will definitely be back again!!!

The food was excellent, meat was so tender I cut it with a fork and had awesome flavor. Love the variety of the salad bar. The wait staff had a great personality and made the meal enjoyable. Didn't make me feel as though I was in the way. I look forward to our next visit.

Service exceptional and it was a very busy evening. Broiled seafood was good although a bit over cooked. NY strip perfectly done. Baked potatoes were a bit hard - a shame because they were perfect prime potatoes - try foil wrapping and longer baking time.

Tim was an okay server. The Argentina Malbec was vinegar. He never asked if wine was good.
The dessert trio was awesome.
I would go back.

The Windjammer never disappoints. Amazing salad bar and the menu is great. My favorites are the Broiled Scallops and the NY Strip. The salad bar along could be a meal.

We were visiting Burlington and were eager for a good steak nearby. Unfortunately, 2 of our steaks were significantly undercooked and it took so long to get waitstaff to come by the table again that the others at the table had already finished their steak before we could ask the waiter to have it cooked a bit more. When the steak were returned, our side orders ( potato, etc) were not on the plate. The flavor was just so-so, so this was a very disappointing meal for about $50 per person. We also ordered iced tea, which, being from the South, we admittedly are very serious about. It tasted similar to instant tea, so this was also disappointing. Waitstaff attentiveness was lacking, although he was nice. I hate to leave a bad review, but also would not want anyone else to spend the money we did for a sub-par meal.

The salad bar is excellent with many choices and types of food. The main menu is very comprehensive and all of the food is well prepared. A step above small restaurants and not as expensive as the best downtown restaurants.

This wasn't "the best" dining experience I've had at this restaurant.
I was there for a casual lunch with a good friend whom I hadn't seen in a while and so we had lots of catching up to do. Therefore, while our service was particularly slow, I didn't mind. I ordered the salmon from the specials menu. I did not care for the seasoning and therefore left half on my plate.
Our server was very efficient and friendly so I wouldn't let this one "so-so" dining experience keep me from returning to the Windjammer or from recommending it to friends. In the past, I have found both the food and the wait-time for the meal to be very good.

This is one of two restaurants that have a real salad bar that is always fresh and crisp.

The food is made to order and always fresh.

The background music is just that, in the background, as it should be, allowing for conversations to be heard without having to talk loudly.

The staff is friendly and accommodating making for a pleasant dining experience.
