Dinner in Burlington for group of 15 on a Saturday night?

I'd love to hear any experience you can share about hosting larger groups in downtown Burlington. Most of the restaurants seem to only accommodate parties of under 10, and I'm starting to run out of ideas!

Thanks in advance.

  1. Did you check with Bluebird BBQ?

    Though I guess it's not really downtown...

      Thank you so much - looks like a great option if we aren't able to find anything within walking distance from the hotel!

    2. A Single Pebble? I went to dinner there with a group of 15-20 a couple years ago.

        I like them, too. TonyO thinks they're overrated though. :) C'mon, Tony! Weigh in! :)

          We will definitely check that out, thank you!

        2. Large group dining on a Saturday night in Burlington can be tough........I think EB Strongs could handle that many, and possibly The Scuffer......I rarely dine out in Burlington in a large group so I would simply pick a few places and call to see if they could handle your you have a preference for cuisine and/or price point? Arts Riot has a large space (but they are about a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk)........if you go early (or late) and it is not a peak weekend, you might be ok at Trattoria Delia, L'Amante, Pascolo, or The Farm House......if you don't mind a drive, it really opens up your options.......

            Thank you so much for such a detailed reply! This is exactly what my experience has been - most places won't even take reservations for parties of that size on a weekend night...
            We don't really have a set price point, but would prefer to keep it within walking distance from the Courtyard, since that's where all our guests will be staying.

            Will definitely be giving all those places that you listed a call!
