“Yummy Burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We stopped here yesterday for a late lunch and ordered burgers and a milkshake. The burgers were delicious (we upgraded to the Angus beef burger as it was locally sourced). My husband ordered a chocolate milkshake and it was made the old-fashioned way. We had a nice time and our waiter was so courteous and made great suggestions. All in all, if we ever make it to Stowe again, we'll definitely visit the Depot Street Malt Shop. It has a relaxed vibe, no pretense, just good food.

“Horrible Service!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We've been coming to Stowe twice a year for many years, and always start our vacation with lunch at the Malt Shop. The sign said "seat yourself", which we did..in the middle of the restaurant. We sat for 10 minutes, with multiple waitresses walking by multiple times, cleaning tables around us, and no one even acknowledging we were there. Eventually my husband asked a passing waitress, who acted surprised. When our waitress finally arrived at the table, she was surly and acted as though we were inconveniencing her. I had to ask for the dressing for my salad, which seemed to really send her over the edge. My salad was delicious, as was the chicken sandwich and burger ordered by others at the table. My son's fried clams (I know, who orders fried clams in Vermont!) were very over cooked, to the point of tasting burnt.

A disappointing way to start our week, and probably our last visit.

“Quaint Little Malt Shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Cute little place with 50s malt shop decor, although a little on the dark an worn side. Husband loved his burger and my salad had a nice sized chicken breast. Portions were adequate but pricey for the size. Service was friendly. For some reason though, we didn't really make an emotional connection with the place.

“Old fashioned malt shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Just as you would expect, with the golden oldies blaring on the radio and old fashioned booths and menu items. We had burgers and shakes.
