The Reservoir has exceptional beer list with a matching American food menu. Service was quick and professional. The ambience is early to mid-20th Century rustic and very cozy. Food is reasonably priced for the sized quantities served up. While The Reservoir is some miles from the aprés ski scene of Stowe, it would be a very good place to visit... More

We visited this cozy pub looking to try the famous Shed Burger of the former Shed Restaurant in Stowe, VT. We were not disappointed. The burger (6 oz. local beef), marinated in dark ale and seasonings and served with melted cheese, lettuce, pickles, red onion on a toasted English muffin, was the iconic real deal. (The tomato slice was missing... More

Busy place and easy to understand why. We arrived in the afternoon aroudn 2:30 and there were a few tables available but the place was really hopping. The hostess was MIA for a few minutes when we waited to be seated but they eventually got us to a table. Beer menu is excellent, plenty of great fresh local brews on... More

When you enter this wonderful place, you are met with a lamp that is held up by a beautiful woman's leg standing on high red heels. It made me wonder where the other leg was… Now seriously, this is a nice cozy pub (family friendly) where the service was good and the food was delicious. You get generous servings and... More

We stopped there when we went At the Cabot cheese annex. What a cool place for lunch and beer. Good choice of local beers and the waitress with good suggestion made us eager for lunch. We will obviously stop there again. Nice service (maybe depending on the time of the day) and good quality. Good portions also.

We stopped in here for apps and beveries on a Tuesday afternoon. Server was delightful (disappointed I don't recall her name) and took great care of our indecisive party of 5. Our two home-brewers were pleased with the extensive draft beer list and had fun picking out what to drink. We shared a couple of tasty appetizers, including sweet potato... More

We sat out on the deck and enjoyed a variety of local craft beers. Waitresses are very friendly and know the menu and make good recommendations. On this day, we just had some wings and drinks, but the atmosphere is just wonderful Will have to go back and try the food.

Out door dining. Great food, reasonably priced. I would recommend this restaurant. Restaurant uses local vendors for fresh food. It was simply a perfect place to dine outside with delicious Vermont type food.
