Good ambiance

We ate here three times during our week in Stowe. Each meal was delicious and the service was excellent. Favorites were the Shrimp Tacos, Chicken Quesadilla, and the Shrimp Scampi. The Calamari appetizer with red pepper strips did not disappoint!

Harrison's is a hard place to get into, it is a small restaurant located in the basement with some outside tables on the street level. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait. We had a 7pm reservation and were seated promptly on arrival. We enjoyed local beer on tap to start, moving onto a very tasty gazpacho to start,... More

This restaurant is fantastic, amazing and must not be missed when in Stowe. Reservations required. As first timers, our server Jamayne steered us towards the specials of the day explaining that this is where the chef really gets to shine and excel with creativity. We enjoyed the roasted red pepper and Asiago cheese soup and the daily salad special (strawberries,... More

I was in the Stowe area on business and decided to catch an early dinner. Their deck by the street looked like an inviting place to people watch and dine. Holly was my server and she was pleasant and informative. I went with the lobster risotto along with a starter of cauliflower soup - both absolutely delicious. I ended the... More

The gazpacho was amazing. I had the chicken, which was good but not great. My wife had the ahi tuna salad, which WAS great. Bartender made a good old fashioned (second best I've had in Vermont thus far -- first being at Bluebird BBQ in Burlington). They were very accommodating and got us a table in the patio area even...

From the Old Fashioned to the accommodating service, I couldn't be happier to hear how great your meal was at our place. Thanks for the comment about the chicken, too -- we'll do what we can to make it great. Glad your other dishes were just about perfect! Hope you'll make it back soon.

Reserved table in advance and it was ready as scheduled. Parking at rear of building was especially appreciated due to large car show and street dance on the evening of our reservation. Food was excellent as was the service and setting. Recommend Harrison's for those seeking a nice dining experience.

The atmosphere was exceptional, yet cozy, as the room is not very large at all. We were seated in front of the fire place, which made the evening even more romantic. The presentation was classy and elegant, with fresh flowers being a part of the food presentation itself. Maybe a little over priced, but still a romantic dinner in Stowe.

Daniel, I'm happy to hear you had such a romantic meal at our place. From the fresh flowers to the fireplace, it's great that you appreciated all of our little touches. I do wish you'd thought the food had been worth every penny, though. Thank you for the feedback! Take care, Andrew K., Owner More

We enjoyed our options at this quaint restaurant. Glad we made reservations on a Sunday evening as they were very busy, both patio and dining room. Hubby had rack of lamb (perfectly cooked to order) and I had the lobster risotto (excellent). Both meals were priced right for the quality, service and ambience.
