Things to Do in Barre



Few towns in Vermont have the variety of restaurants available as does the town of Barre.  The palette is well served by the many local establishments where one can find casual to gourmet foods.


If you're interested in a great steak try the Fillet Mignon at The Quarry Kitchen & Spirits or the 12 oz. Rib Eye at the Cornerstone Pub & Kitchen. The Steak House Restaurant, located just outside the heart of the downtown district, also serves a fine selection of flame broiled steaks. Those restaurants also serve an assortment of fish and local favorites. Mulligan's Irish Pub is a local favorite serving craft beers and pub fair.


Ladder 1 Grill & Pub, Positive Pie, Basil's Pizzeria & Restaurant, Mister Z's each serve their own specialty pizza with a distinctive gourmet flair.


For gourmet Chinese cuisine you are not likely to be disappointed if you visit Asia Gourmet. The restaurant adds their own unique flair to a variety of authentic Chinese dishes. Bamboo Gardens and Chinatown Restaurant both serve Chinese food in the tradition of Chinese restaurants found in America.


Si Aku Ramen presents Filipino and Pan-Asian cuisine in addition to their worldly assortment of dried foods available at their market. Two Loco Guys serves authentic Mexican cuisine, including tacos and enchiladas.


Soup n' Greens is, perhaps, one of the more casual restaurants though with an extensive salad bar.


For a morning breakfast try Maria's Bagels for their own breakfast bagel sandwiches.  The restaurant also serves lunch. If you're simply interested in a coffee or espresso you may be very happy to find Espresso Bueno.  The cafe also serves a modest assortment of pastry.


A few of Barre's restaurants will feature local live entertainment to accompany their menu and libations.  Gusto's has live acoustic and local bands every week, while The Quarry Kitchen & Spirits, Positive Pie, Mulligan's Irish Pub and the Ladder 1 Grill & Pub feature local bands occasionally or during holiday events. Interested in Karaoke? Visit Jerry's Sports Bar on Thursday nights starting at 8:30pm.
