Great little pub. Food there is great greasy pub grub. Good drink menu, nice assortment on tap. Nice atmosphere, feels very homey and comfortable. Patio doesn't have a lot of scenery but that's the only downside in my book!

Great place. Food was good, service was prompt and friendly. I'll be back soon.


went here for drinks, ended up getting some food too. the food was surprisingly good and the drinks were fairly priced, the atmosphere is great too. they have a good patio and the inside is very comfortable and fun

Fries were quite salty and I'm not complaining absolutely what I needed. Serving sizes were right on the money and service was fast not to much I can complain about as a first time goer. The actual location and building are nothing fancy but who really cares when they nailed all the basics.

Originally gave them a thumbs down on skip as they forgot one of the meals. When we called, the manager, Kevin, personally delivered the omitted meal to us along with a dessert as an apology.We ordered because the food is delicious from there. The fact that they went above and beyond made The Dickens that much better

We just had our lunch at this restaurant and had Kendra as our server. She was not friendly, not accommodating, not attentive. She did not say one word like “how are you” or “how’s the food” until we left she did not even say bye. She gave us the cheque, we paid then left without a word. Whenever she served us food, she didn’t say anything and just tossed the food on the table. She gave us no recommendations, when we were ordering it’s like she was in a rush. One person was still ordering and she was already asking the next person. The owner however, is friendly and nice. I rated one star because of the food but she’s by far the worst server we’ve ever encountered.

Nice pub in the heart of downtown Burlington. Big menu with options for all. A small selection of craft beers. The service was great and the food was equally as good. Prices are pretty standard for downtown Burlington. I recommend the fish and chips!


The sea food pot pie tastes heavenly! Orange beer is great as well. Highly recommended

Service was disastrous, the waitress was condescending, obnoxious, and neglectful. When we approached the manager "Kevin" to discuss the service and our disappointment he continued to make excuses for the waitress conduct. We suggested perhaps switching our waitress for an other, which he agreed.We literally received no further service from any pub staff. . We eventually after several requests for the bill had to approach the bartender to pay. I would not recommend Dickens to anyone!!!.

We've had a lovely dinner last night. As usual, The Village restaurants deliver a unique experience, with a smile. Food was yummy, drinks cold and refreshing, and service just perfect. Thank you for an enjoyable evening!

Family was in Burlington looking for a place to eat. We had a dog and not many places accepted dogs. Standing around and hostess at Dickens told us we could sit on patio with dog... excellent! Food was great and server was more than helpful. Would go again!

Spinach dip was super yummy and the sangria was on point.

Very poor management. The restaurant manager is very rude and the only thing that is not seen in his behavior is respectful behavior. He behaved very rudely.In my opinion, eating a meal was not worth tolerating such abusive and rude behavior. And be angry and upset all day long.Next to this restaurant, there are other restaurants where we can have a very relaxing time with delicious food.


Stopped in Burlington on a bike trip. We were told it would be a 30 minute wait for a table and left our name and number. Never received a call back or text.

We had a late afternoon meal on the patio. Service was great, friendly without being intrusive.
