This is a basement. A small, very warm basement, with awkward and cramped seating. I had very oily/rubbery calamari and a grilled rib eye that was gray and brown because it was obviously cooked on a flat top griddle. My wife and I read the other reviews, so we gave the 2nd best restaurant in Stowe a try... HUGE MISTAKE.... More

We always eat at Harrisons when we are ski-ing at Stowe. We book a table before we leave the UK as it is so popular that if you leave it until the last minute you risk not being able to get a reservation. Last year my husband had a “special” called Lobster Mac, which he absolutely loved so when we... More

Very friendly greeting by host. Server a bit stiff, but competent, quick, and non intrustive. We had requested a back booth in the corner and got it (we had an early reservation). We love the ambiance--quiet and romantic. The booths add privacy like no other restaurant we've been to in Stowe. We began with tomato/saffron soup--an incredible culinary experience--impossible to... More

I travelled to Stowe, Vermont in February and of course had to stop in at my favourite restaurant - Harrison's. My meal as usual was wonderful, the staff were great. I have never been disappointed when going there. It is a small, intimate restaurant with loads of character. Usually the owner, Kathy, is there to welcome you. I always feel... More

I had the traditional fish and chips. Great food - they had more on the menu than just bar food too. The spinach artichoke dip was to die for - also had a good local beer selection.

Excellent food! Excellent drinks! Nice place for après ski with a cozy feeling. Bartender Andy, one of the best... Takes good care of his customers. Ate at the bar. Had the Tuna and Crab Cakes as first courses, amazing... Squash raviolis with scallops, and the Marlin plate as main course... Perfection on the cooking! Will come back for sure!

Made reservations here for one of our nights in Stowe. It was a great choice. I had the shrimp tacos, my wife had the shrimp and scallop scampi, and our 11yr old daughter had the kids sirloin with fries and broccoli. We also had the boneless buffalo/bbq tenders appetizer to get started. With a total of 4 drinks, the food,... More

Good restaurant with a strong local following. Staff friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and the beers. All the food was good. we shared some of the appetisers between as as the menu looked so inviting that we couldn't decide what to eat. The appetisers were more successful than the entrees we felt.

Delicious food; ample portions. (Share an entree or order two appetizers). Nice also to sit at the bar if you can't get a booth--the place is small and always busy. Great wines by the glass, too. Friendly staff.
