  • The Boxing Rock Taproom is one of our favourite eateries in Shelburne. On this night we enjoyed their loaded nachos with Boxing Rock's cider and various brews on tap.

  • Nothing like the humiliation of paying a bill, and leaving a large tip, and having the waitress look right through me-saying nothing-as I bade them a farewell. I didn't anticipate a standing ovation, but even a, "Thanks for coming!" would have worked wonders to offset the unpleasant meal we were served. It isn't often that I stare in amazement at plates of food when they arrive at my table. My thought at the time was do these people have a contempt for their customers? Regarding the food, the effort expended was hovering around zero, and it showed immediately. They evidently have someone on staff who "prepares" food via a microwave, rather than employing a cook. The server seemed as if she had better things to do with her time than be there that day. Again, we were not expecting servers to give us foot rubs, but even a nanosecond of pleasantries would have worked miracles. My feeling is that this establishment will require a miracle or two if it doesn't steer a different course soon.
  • Falls so far short of mark that it would soon be out of business if it was located anywhere else. When words like "notes" and "tones" are used to describe their beers, but without the ability to contrast between their products and others throughout the world that form a datum, then the descriptions are little more than a misguided flourish. When our food was brought to the table, my first assumption was that they wanted us to leave. I was familiar with all of the ingredients, as all were prepackaged, just requiring a quick pass through the microwave before serving. If this is this restaurant's standard, then it's unlikely that we'd ever return.
