Best recent dinner in Stowe

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... read more

I get a chance to visit Stowe on several occasions each year and I always include Harrison's in my plans. This small very quaint restaurant in downtown Stowe is a terrific place to have a nice meal and enjoy the ambiance. I recommend it highly as it is very well priced and they always have a great selection to choose... More

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.

This restaurant was recommended by a few employees at Stowe Lodge where I am staying so I thought I would try it. The restaurant is small and cozy, andI chose to eat at the bar. The cocktail and wine list is very nice. I ordered a garden salad which was fresh, large and delicious. For my entrée I chose the... More

The grilled salmon was tasty. The pumpkin ravioli were good but the butternut squash cream sauce served with them was a bit heavy. The caprese salad was very overdressed. The cheese and fruit plate was good, but the flavor of crackers was a little overpowering. Waitstaff was attentive, friendly and helpful. Nice, cozy feel to the restaurant.

We booked the restaurant based on the recommendation of an old friend. We showed up about 30 minutes early but were able to get a table. The service was very good and the food was tasty and the prices reasonable.

Based upon other TripAdvisor reviews we were looking forward to dining at Harrison's. The Restaurant and Bar are located downstairs. It is small, quaint and comfortable, with the bar taking up one half of the facility and the dining area taking up the other half. My wife had split pea soup (good), and a dinner salad topped with Seared Tuna... More
