Maybe you are a boy and don't even know it! Sounds like it may be the case! Have you had your DNA X and Y chromosomes counted? To Beep or Not to Beep, that is the question!

Doing just fine! Thanks for asking! Been to the Station lately? Hows EVERYTHING going down there! Not ever very many cars in the taxpayer funded parking lot! Yes thats right they can't even afford their own parking lot! I see the town keeps it plowed to order too! Maybe a little kickback for Stewie and the other boys and girls of 205 South Street! I wonder if the good ole chef is one of the idiots biotching about Mr JimmyJoe! I bet he is! Reminds me of other local business owners and workers who can't or wont shut their mouths! Want me to express ALL my thoughts? Naw! I'll leave that to the others here!

Real Vermonter you are just simply CRAZY!!!!! Nobody wants to hear all of your thoughts...I have been in the Bennington Station lately and I must say they were very busy, the parking lot very full and brunch was excellent. Maybe you should try it and leave the McDonalds alone for a while. It looks like you don't need it anymore.

I don't get the negative on the station either. Good food at good prices. Very few places that serve beyond standard bar food where you can have an adult beverage.

As for the complaining about the hot-dog cart, I doubt it is the station. The competition in the hot-dog market is the two bars up the street across from each other.

I have to agree that the food is great,but the front of the house is another story...there needs to be more help,buss boy and Floor Manager/hostess.A full time bartender would be a plus and with the excellent app's would surely bring in more lunch and afternoon business.It is all about the all around dinning experience.Robert Andrew serves amazing creations and i was proud to have worked with him for a short time....everyone i served were very happy.....Good Luck Bob

The creations of Chef Robert Andrew's are outstanding...and i was proud to have served there for a short time.I have to agree that the front of the house is lacking in consistency.A floor manager is in need and could also be a greeting hostess.A full time bartender would greatly increase sales in the dinning room and lounge with the excellent app.s that are offered.It is all about the whole dinning experience,and i believe he will do well with a few minor changes
