This was our second visit to Stowe in four years and the second time we ate at Harrison's. The meal was every bit as special the second time around. We split a roasted beet salad which was a simple presentation but fresh, perfectly balanced flavors and just delicious. My wife had the maple... read more

We were in Stowe for four days and we ate there twice, both my wife's and my dinner were wonderful. I had grilled char (fish)and it was as very good. The main course, soups and salads were great and the desert was a slice of heaven. Eating in Stowe is pricey and this is no exception, but it was much... More

The fact that you and your wife came in twice in four days is all I need to hear to know how much you liked the food. I appreciate it, Tim! Glad you were able to save room for that slice of Heaven, too! Hope to see you and your wife again soon. Best wishes, Andrew K., Owner More

Especially as TA is always spot on. The room is charming. The menu is a bit fussy for my taste. A prefer simple combinations. That said the beet salad was quite good. The lamb ribs were well sauced but quite fatty.

Glad you enjoyed the beet salad! I'm sorry if the items on our menu weren't exactly your cup of tea. We do strive to do everything we do well, though. so we'll be working on making those lamb ribs a little less fatty. Thanks for the suggestion! Best, Andrew K., Owner More

My spouse and I were very happy to get reservations at this seemingly well regarded restaurant. Our happiness ended there. The salad we shared as an appetizer was OK. Both main courses were very poorly executed. I had fish and chips, a simple dish. The fries were soggy and the coleslaw limp. The fish was acceptable but fairly uninspiring. My... More

My husband and I visited on a beautiful day, sat outside. We started with the crab cake appetizer which was fabulous! He had pan seared duck breast with warm potato salad, and I had pecan crusted fish with blueberry ginger sauce and stirfry vegetables with napa cabbage. It was exquisite! So many great options to choose from on the menu.... More

My wife and son took me to Harrison's for Father's Day and again we were impressed. From my son's mussels which we shared for an appetizer to our entrees; roast duck breast, scallops and the steak tips, the food was off the hook. Without a doubt the best restaurant in Stowe and for that matter anywhere. Peter Nakano

Best restaurant anywhere? Well, I definitely couldn't hope for a better review than that! Thanks for the kind words about the food, Peter. (I have to admit that the roast duck breast is a personal favorite). Anyway, I hope to see you and your wife again very soon! Best wishes, Andrew K., Owner More

My son and I stopped here after a intense day of skiing in powder and were not dissappointed. The food was excellent and we loved the atmosphere and stayed and relaxed until closing time.

A place with a good atmosphere and good food but sometimes a bit too expensive. The place located in a intersting place.
