One Federal Restaurant & Lounge

Dear Guest,

Thank you for supporting us here at One Federal Restaurant & Lounge where we aim to be Fresh, Local, and Sustainable.  Our goal is to provide a fun, friendly atmosphere where everyone can come and enjoy great fresh meals made right here from scratch for a great value.

One Federal is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week. 11am to 10pm. On Sundays we open at 10am and have a breakfast specials menu in addition to the lunch menu. Our phone number is 802-524-0330 and you can follow us on Facebook or find us on the web at www.OneFederalRestaurant.com

We are a full service family dining restaurant and bar. We offer 115 seats inside, with 4 different dining rooms: our Lounge and Bar, the Great Room, the Barrel Room, and the intimate Library. We have a beautiful brick outdoor Victorian courtyard with 60 seats and a fantastic 2000 sq ft tented banquet area for functions up to 120 guests. We have hosted anniversaries, surprise parties, reunions, holiday parties, weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, showers and more.



Every Tuesday is Kids Eat Free with the purchase of an adult entrée. Every Thursday night there are draft specials. From Memorial Day through Labor Day under our tents is the Summer Concert Series featuring live local bands from 7-11 Thursday nights, and the rest of the year we feature 25cent wings.

One Federal makes every attempt to be Green by using unbleached recycle paper products for our menus, and compostable to-go containers. We recycle, compost, and even have low flush toilets. Our spent cooking oil is donated and turned into Bio-diesel to fuel local trucks.

Everything on our menu is hand made from scratch and cooked to order. We use the highest quality ingredients using fresh local seasonal products where available.

One Federal aims to be sustainable and local too…we use Boyden Valley Beef, Ridge View Farms, Valley Road Maple, Vermont Coffee Company, and Cabot Creamery to name a few, and we serve lots of local wines and brews. We even have our own 4 acre vegetable farm which provides much of the produce on your plate in the harvest months.



There is a lot of history in this old building. Dated 1840, this is originally the site of the St Albans Foundry and Implement Co. Here, factory workers made enormous farm equipment such as cow/horse powered threshers, cane crushers, stone lifters, and corn stalk shredders to name a few. One of the tread mills is even on display at the Smithsonian Museum in DC.

After the Foundry, this space has been home to many different businesses. Dowling’s Smoke Shop, an Ice Cream Parlor, a bowling alley, Charlie Vermont’s Restaurant and the Old Foundry Restaurant. Much of this building’s history, along with the great city of St Albans, can be seen on our walls throughout the restaurant.

One Federal Restaurant and Lounge opened its doors in mid-March of 2009.

Thank you for supporting us here at One Federal Restaurant & Lounge.


Enjoy!
