Great burgers, outdoor dinning

Had burgers here after a long hike, made to order hot, juicy burgers and curly fries. Definitely a great burger and we would definitely come back!

I was at the Blue Donkey this past July and absolutely loved it. This is a fun place where you get to eat outside and enjoy the Stowe air and scenery. The burgers are delicious and they offer vegetarian and a chicken option. Served with fries, what can be better. Its about chill, not fancy style! The burger is delicious... More

That should be the question, as the place has a serious fly issue. Impossible to eat without flies buzzing around and trying to land on you and your food. Just imagine what they are doing in the kitchen... Aside from the flies, the food is a bit pricey for the quality - average at best and very greasy. Would not... More

A little pricey and not any better than you would get somewhere else. Like the feel of the place, but the food was a bit of a let down. Kitchen seemed messy and unkept.

For a classic burger w reg fries, Rocky (cheesesteak) w sweet potato fries and 2 fountain sodas it cost just under $32. The food was mediocre and not worth the cost. Our son, wife, twins who shared a meal and their other son cost just under $52. Was really looking forward to our 1st visit not realizing it would be... More

The Blue Donkey in the middle of Stowes main strip was outstanding. Numerous items to choose from. Tried the Blue Bacon Cheese Burger which melted in your mouth and exploded with flavor as well as juices. French fries were hand cut and delicious.

News flash to the cooks. Smoked wings do not have to be cooked for the same time as raw wings. They only need to crisp the skin. They were dry and tough and needed to be sauced again after they come out of the fryer. My wife's burger was overcooked as well.
