We booked a two bed room in the carriage house, they were full sized beds. Arrived at 9:30 and the lights outside of the rooms were all off so that we had to get out of the car and walk the entire length to see our room number and find the door. The area was very dark and hard to... More

Visited Stowe in Oct 2013 and had excellent prime rib. Ten months later returned mouth watering to find the waiter/bartender was now the chef and there was not one bottle of booze at the bar. A bit disturbing .... Something is up in stowe.

The food was good, service was a bit slow, but we had no where else to be so we sat back and enjoyed each other's company, while the one waitress worked hard and stayed pleasant and friendly the whole time. The inn was hosting 2 murder mystery dinners (unusual for them to have 2 on one night) so the kitchen... More

The burger and french fries were my favorite dish. Next time going to try the Shepard's Pie. The bartender was funny.

My husband and I went to the River House restaurant recently and had SUCH a great time! Our server, Melissa, was a delight and very knowledgeable about the menu. I got the grilled chicken breast which was perfectly tender & moist, and came with bacon lentles which I hadn't had before, but now love. My husband opted for the arugala... More

This restaurant was so bad from start to finish it was actually funny. Our party of six who had a reservation were ignored for 20 minutes upon entering and then another 20 minutes when we sat down. Wine was poured into water glasses. They provided us cocktail napkins because they did not have any linens. Food was priced high and... More

We wanted somewhere near the main street and picked the Tavern besed on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The sign outside advertised the prime rib, so I gave it a go. Very nice, and cooked exactly as I wanted. The kids menuus were a little limited - it would be nice to have a kids selection based on smaller... More

The restaurant is really called The River House Restaurant, it is located in the Stowe Inn which in itself was a very nice inn. Our dining experience from salads to Irish coffee was wonderful and the best part wasn't even the wonderful food it was Edward our waiter. He displayed great manners and sincerely seemed to love being there. He... More

My was at a conference and we were looking for a nice restaurant to have a quiet dinner. Walking in the door we were greeted by 3 members of the staff and seat. Alex was very quick to point out that the window seats were chilly, seated us accordingly. Both my wife and I had the Prime Ribs which was... More

We decided to stop at the Stowe Inn for dinner as they had a sign outside declaring it to be Prime Rib Night, but neither of us ended up having the Prime Rib! We were warmly greeted by several members of staff, and were seated and served by Ed, who was hysterical! We started with (I hope I've got this... More
