Enjoyed our Dinner

We enjoyed Harrisons one evening for dinner while in Stowe. We arrived early enough in the evening, and were seated without a reservation. We opted to eat inside as the restaurant was so cozy and quaint. Our service was very good, food was delicious, and everyone enjoyed their meal.

You wouldn't expect this subterraneous location to be welcoming but it is. Very cozy, dark wood and good pub food with a spin. I can't wait to go back in the winter when I'm sure the environment will be even more inviting

So glad we surpassed your expectations, JR! We're pretty proud of our cozy vibe all year round, but can't wait to hear what you think of it in the cooler months. That said, I hope you'll come back plenty before then, too! Cheers, Andrew K., Owner More

Located in the heart of Stowe, Vermont at the intersection of Routes 100 & 108, Harrison's is a gem. The service is warm and friendly followed by a lovely variety of delicious menu items. The Seafood Chowder, similar in style to traditional New England Clam Chowder, is filled with seafood and simply delicious! My wife had the Lobster Risotto which... More

What an incredible write-up, Joel -- like something from a magazine! Really though, I can't thank you enough for your kind words, and am so glad to know that Shrimp Scampi was such a hit. I hope it's not long before you and your wife are back in VT! Until then, Andrew K., Owner More

7/18/15 In Stowe area for summer visit with local friends from Waitsfield. They chose this place due to its good ratings on TripAdvisor. Dining outside was nice but small area. The daily fish special was very good as well as the mussels appetizer. Staff was courteous and in good spirits. I would eat here again.

My husband and I found ourselves in Stowe during the Hot Air Balloon Festival. It was difficult to find a restaurant close to our hotel. Harrison's was recommended although it was a 15 minute drive away. The bar and restaurant were quite busy but the server asked if we would be willing to eat at the bar. The staff were... More

We ordered off the special for the day menu - from appetizers, to entree and wine selection. It was fabulous.

After checking out of the reviews on Tripadvisor decided to stop by Harrison's it was a nice looking restaurant yet very overcrowded the seats on the balcony and in the restaurant or difficult to obtain unless you make prior reservations.

I hate to hear that your meal at our place wasn't anything extraordinary. I'm sorry you didn't get a table, and that the bar wasn't too comfortable. We do get pretty full, so we always recommend reservations. It sounds like your meal was good, but you'd appreciate a little more variety. We're always changing it up and adding new specials,...

I usually won't order seafood unless I can smell the ocean but I'm so glad I made an exception at Harrison's. The Pecan crusted seared Tuna was outstanding, and the mussels appetizer had some of the very best mussels that I've ever tasted. Service was excellent (thank you Seth).
