We frequent Stowe, but have waited until this summer to visit the Hob Knob. Upon our first visit, we knew we had to go back immediately! So we did... the next night. And the following weekend.

The service was great, and the dining room is lovely. However both my husband and I had steaks and both had a strong burned taste from the grill. I sent mine back and while they tried it really wasn't much better the second time. I have to say they really tried, the waitress was very nice. I'm just not sure... More

We stayed in Stowe for a long weekend. It rained the whole time. Luckily, we chose to have dinner at the Hob Knob Inn on the second night. The people and setting were fantastic. We had a nice romantic setting with the table right by the cracking fireplace. My filet steak was cooked to perfection. Service was excellent and friendly.... More

Every year we come up to Stowe in October and we try to go to the Hob Knob restaurant for dinner but it closes early in the season. This year we got up on their last night and were able to have an amazing dinner!! They serve certified Angus beef and although I am not a frequent 'red meat' eater... More

We were slightly off-season, but disappointed in quality of food. The Caesar Salad was the worst I've had. The dressing seemed to come from a cheap bottle. The rest of the meal was average, at best; I expected more from the reviews I read.

Dined on Thursday of 9/17/15. Salads were fresh, crisp and a great beginning. All the entree choices were appealing, and ribeye/bleu cheese special was well prepared & delicious, so were the fresh baked desserts. . Friendly staff and home-like atmosphere - casual Vermont in a well appointed restaurant. Enjoyable experience but leave big city attitudes, demands & expectations at home... More

The reviews led us to believe more than we experienced here. Our dinner was OK, but did not reach the superlatives in other reviews. We had the salads, mine was spinach with sliced almonds and strawberries and my wife's was the salad with feta cheese. She had the ravioli with pesto (tomato based?) which she pronounced as quite delicious along... More

As in previous years, my wife and I enjoyed our last meal of the week at our favorite restaurant in Stowe VT. Stowe offers many great places to dine with a wide variety of choices, but if you want steak there is only one place to go, Hob Knob. Family run, the atmosphere is pleasant and inviting. The steak is... More

The Hob Knob is a wonderful combination of elegance and unpretentiousness, situated in a beautiful setting on the Mountain Road just out of Stowe. The menu is interesting and varied, with steaks, fish (creative salmon and ahi), chicken, and vegetarian choices. The salmon and chicken dishes are available with tofu as a substitute, and the crab cakes are not over-breaded... More
