Our all time favorite in Stowe!

We go at least annually (all the way from Morrisville)... just really enjoy the ambiance, the owners, the staff, the food and, of course, each other as they serve us in their inimitable style!

The basement space is small ad is further broken up, which makes fairly intimate even with large parties or many kids. Food is solid American fair. I thought the golden beet salad was excellent. The braised lamb ribs were not what I expected--I would have called them BBQ lamb ribs. With that said, they were very good, just not what... More

My wife and I had a very good meal here on a Friday night. We had reservations and were seated immediately. I had a Caesar salad and the PEI mussels. The salad was delicious, especially with the anchovies on it. The mussels were in a white wine, garlic and onion sauce. They were excellent. My wife had the mixed green... More

We went here for dinner. It is located in the basement of a real estate building. The restaurant is small and had carpeted floors. The food was ok. I ordered the steak tips which were over seasoned with pepper. My wife ordered the shrimp scampi and one of the pieces bordered on not being cooked well enough. The last comment... More

I'm sorry that you weren't blown away by your meal here. I'm pretty disappointed to hear that your dishes weren't that well-prepared, and that your server wasn't as warm and friendly as she should've been. I do appreciate the feedback, though, and I know we can do better. I hope you'll give us another shot should you return to Stowe!... More

We have eaten here 3-4 times over the past two year. The restaurant is small, with a nice bar area. In our experience, you must reserve ahead. Four of us had scallop specials, the roast beef sandwich, pumpkin ravioli and assorted soups and salads...all perfectly done. Service is attentive and pleasant. Our only complaint is having to wait 15 minutes... More

We opted to go to Harrison's because of their ad in the Stowe Magazine. It was a smart choice. My wife started with a salad (8) which I tried their crab cakes (4) (1-10 rating scale). We both opted for the chicken piccata (8), but the chicken was somewhat overdone. The server was very good, but the parking for cars... More

I get a chance to visit Stowe on several occasions each year and I always include Harrison's in my plans.

Small restaurant in the village with a tavern feel. Wonderful wine selection and many choices for entrees. Try the asiago cheese fries, my favorite, and I usually don't like fries. Wonderful food, ambiance and service. Make a reservation, otherwise there will be a wait.

We asked around for the best steakhouse in the area. Sat at the bar, we always do, waited 10 min. to be acknowledged. I had the Chicken piccata and wife had salad. I am not a professional chef but can cook. This was absolutely the worst Piccata i have ever had. They should hire e as the chef. Rubber chicken,... More

Herb908, I'm really sorry to hear that we let you down. This is kind of baffling to me, to be honest, since we do have an incredibly talented kitchen staff, and we think most of our guests agree. Nevertheless, I hate that we let you down, and I'm sorry that chicken piccata was so unpleasant. I'll definitely look into this,... More

Yet another great dinner at Harrison's. We've always been really pleased with our dining experience here, and that's why we'll continue to come back. Being from Maine, we enjoy fresh seafood. I had the crab cake appetizer & the Lobster Risotto - both were outstanding. Great atmosphere, staff, & food. Reservations recommended, so you are sure to get a table.
