Today hopefully was an anomaly, not very busy, took over an hour to get two burgers, burgers were over-cooked & my patty melt the bread was not grilled enough it seemed like the grilling part was an after thought. Hope it is... More

The place looks a complete mess. We queued for ages, while the waitress was constantly interrupted by the phone ringing for take-out orders. We couldn't find a seat in the crowded eating area, so ended up squashed in a corner, with a view of the yard, where black bags of rubbish were stashed. After a wait of about 40 mins,... More

My children enjoyed their burgers for what its... More

We decided to try the Blue Donkey for lunch on our recent trip to Stowe. Boy are we glad we did. The burgers are charbroiled and served with hand cut French Fries. Absolutely delish! Definitely try this place when in Stowe. You won't be sorry.

Stumbled on this place on our way to Canada. Good burgers and had my first Heady Topper. If in Stowe again, we will go back.

Stopped here on a whim as it was very close to the farmer's market in the middle of Stowe. The place is charming..open to the lovely weather and the activity of the farmer's market. We ordered a simple meal which was delicious...especially the french fries! We also tried an unfiltered beer on tap which was "hoppy" but not bitter. The... More
