Everything you'd expect from Vermont ... My wife, seven-month-old daughter, and I grabbed a table here right before the dinner rush on a Friday night in April. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive from start to finish, making us feel relaxed during a busy time. The beers were cheap and tasty (extra points for having Dogfish Head, my personal favorite), and the food was delicious. I got the bun-less burger with cheddar cheese, onions, and peppers (and some great sweet potato fries) and my wife got the pesto pasta, which was tasty and refreshing. Smiling faces, kind people, good food, small bill = Vermont is a wonderful place. We'd come back to JD's in a second.
Great food, great drinks and the staff is super-friendly, attentive and not hard on the eyes either! JD's is awesome!!!
Great bar atmosphere, with very friendly people! You are greeted by the owner JD and he may even give you a wee dram of a single malt scotch! Bonny is a wonderful bartender. The calamari was very good. I'd go back when in the Putney, Vermont area!

Curtis’ All American Barbeque

I had high hopes based on reviews. While it was a good meal, I wasn't overly impressed. I came on a Friday evening; slightly early for dinner. There were a few customers eating at the tables. I was the only one ordering. When asking about sides, the guy behind the order taker barked:"they're listed on the board over there!" Sorry for asking. Apparently, he was more concerned with getting my order so he could figure out whether plate it or box it to go. After getting. My order, I had the chance to talk to Curtis out by the pit. He's a great guy, very friendly. I enjoyed my conversation with him. I went with the chicken and ribs combo. The ribs were great! Curtis's sauce is really good. You can buy it there or at other local stores in the SoVT area. Good texture on the ribs. The chicken was Ok. It was dry and that didn't help things. The sides were ok; the slaw was watery and the beans had been sitting for some time. Oh well. Not a great meal; but not a bad one either. I just don't think it lives up to some of the other reviews. Still, a neat place to stop by and experience. It's pretty legendary in the area.
I ate here on vacation and it was delicious! Loved the Carolina style barbecue and the pig mascot! Delicious! Would give it a hundred stars if I could! It's like the south, but with a northern twist!
Before I get started here, I'll acknowledge that many of the "right-on" details are outlined in the positive reviews and therefore I'll refrain from waxing philosophically on areas that are already covered. The negative reviews (ranging from 1 to 2.5) that concern quality of service or layout of the establishment itself are clearly written by folks that may not be all too familiar with the outlets across the U.S. that produce the finest barbeques. In my experience, those outlets are generally in trailers (or, at the very least, roadside/humble structures) and frequently, (if you're lucky) you're walking right by "Operations" (i.e., the owner, watching over the meats) on your way to/from ordering the meal. (Disclaimer - my favorite barbeque is from Eastern North Carolina (whole hog reigns supreme), and specifically from Pete Jones' Skylight Inn barbeque. If you google-map that, you'll see that it is tremendously inconvenient to get to - from pretty much anywhere - but yet it's worth the trip. I only mention this by way of establishing my 'Q credentials...) Curtis's Bar-B-Q offers Vermont and New England at-large an experience generally seen in inconvenient locations in the south. Curtis's reminds me of a good number of barbeque places in Eastern North Carolina for that matter. I've always enjoyed Curtis' ribs dry, with the sauce on the side. I find that the ribs stand on their own merit and don't need extra. You're going to eat outside. You're going to get your fingers sticky. You might even need to wipe the bench off (is that a lot to ask?). No one ever said eating barbeque was pretty. That's very likely why you don't see Barbeque on either the Main Dining Menu or the Lounge Menu of Le Bernardin... ;) p.s., many thanks to my good friend Ben Guerrero for having introduced me to Mr. Tuff's 9th wonder of the world!

Clean restaurant, fresh food, and great service. Our fries were fresh cut and the cheese and bacon were real. Not many diners pass my standards but this one was quite exceptional.
Cozy place for good food at nice prices. Got the Turkey Club and it was good roast turkey, not deli meat like you get in some places. Service was good even with only one waitress covering several patrons. Try the spiced hot cider if it's available (seasonal)!
We stop in for breakfast while camping down the street. This is the kind of place my wife and I enjoy. Good food, friendly service, no surprises. But don't you hate it when you place your order, then they walk by with something that looks awesome. In the morning, if it's not raining, we will stop in again.
