Seriously the BEST food in Stowe!!

Hidden gem on the hill, heading to Mt Mansfield. The Hob Knob restaurant is only open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays. But well worth the wait! The staff are very friendly, and remember their customers year after year. The steaks melt in your mouth! We come back year after year... read more

To start, VERY outdated and dirty. As former Stowe residents we used to come here many moons ago with previous owners. That was 25-30 years ago and the decor is still the same- but not the food. I'm guessing with all of these great or good reviews they were taken in by the dim lighting. The salad was obviously from... More

Beautiful dining room, exceedingly friendly, knowledgable server who was always close by by never intrusive. Food exquisite - we shared escargot. My seared Ahi tuna was among the best I'd ever had. My friend enjoyed her Citrus chicken.

My husband and I have a time share in Stowe, VT for the same week every year in January and really enjoy eating in the different restaurants. We live full time in a beach resort in Delaware and so are accustomed to good food in restaurants, especially fish. Tonight I had the best ahi tuna that I have ever eaten... More

We vacation in Stowe once or twice a year and I am sad to say this was our first visit to the Hob Knob. But I can assure you will we be back. The restaurant is warm and friendly from the moment we walked in. We started with the French onion soup, hearty and homemade. My husband had the ribeye... More

The service was fantastic but this is more a family restaurant than a special occasion one. We were surprised that the bill for 4 of us,including tip was $200, since we only had one main course each, 2 Budweisers, one coke, one cocktail and a glass of wine. I would recommend both the rib eye and New York strip but... More

We visited Stowe with family and friends for my husband's birthday, and decided to have his birthday dinner at the Hob Knob. We were all so glad we did! Everyone raved about the steaks in particular. The service was wonderful - my daughter is a young toddler and the waitresses gave her a very warm reception. Kate went so far... More

The staff was wonderful very engaged with all the guest and the restaurant itself had a very lodge feeling about it quite relaxing. Our food was prepared well and delicious. They have a small menu that they do right. We thought it a but pricey but found out that it wasn't for the Stowe area.

Selection was quite good and the meal was hot and delicious. I had the duck and it was prepared perfectly. The portion size was adequate for a good appetite. My daughter enjoyed the vegetarian selection.

Went for dinner. Had the smoked trout appetizer which was fabulous. Nice smoked flavor but not overwhelming. For dinner we had the roasted duck which was good,the pork tenderloin which had an apple reduction and apples and it was excellent. We had the broiled trout which was a little bland. The apple crisp for dessert rocked.
