Especially as TA is always spot on. The room is charming. The menu is a bit fussy for my taste. A prefer simple combinations. That said the beet salad was quite good. The lamb ribs were well sauced but quite fatty.

Glad you enjoyed the beet salad! I'm sorry if the items on our menu weren't exactly your cup of tea. We do strive to do everything we do well, though. so we'll be working on making those lamb ribs a little less fatty. Thanks for the suggestion! Best, Andrew K., Owner More

My spouse and I were very happy to get reservations at this seemingly well regarded restaurant. Our happiness ended there. The salad we shared as an appetizer was OK. Both main courses were very poorly executed. I had fish and chips, a simple dish. The fries were soggy and the coleslaw limp. The fish was acceptable but fairly uninspiring. My... More

I'm sorry that you and your spouse didn't feel like your meal lived up to our food's reputation. You've given me a lot to work with here, and I'll be mentioning all of these things to our kitchen staff. I really appreciate the detailed and candid feedback!

My husband and I visited on a beautiful day, sat outside. We started with the crab cake appetizer which was fabulous! He had pan seared duck breast with warm potato salad, and I had pecan crusted fish with blueberry ginger sauce and stirfry vegetables with napa cabbage. It was exquisite! So many great options to choose from on the menu.... More

My wife and son took me to Harrison's for Father's Day and again we were impressed. From my son's mussels which we shared for an appetizer to our entrees; roast duck breast, scallops and the steak tips, the food was off the hook. Without a doubt the best restaurant in Stowe and for that matter anywhere. Peter Nakano

Best restaurant anywhere? Well, I definitely couldn't hope for a better review than that! Thanks for the kind words about the food, Peter. (I have to admit that the roast duck breast is a personal favorite). Anyway, I hope to see you and your wife again very soon! Best wishes, Andrew K., Owner More

My son and I stopped here after a intense day of skiing in powder and were not dissappointed. The food was excellent and we loved the atmosphere and stayed and relaxed until closing time.

We were recommended to go here and were not disappointed. The food is sensational as was the atmosphere and the competent staff. Food served was just right and very tasty. A real winner in Stowe. Best to make a reservation as it is very popular. Excellent excellent excellent.

Given a shortage of choice, this was our restaurant for an evening meal. Nice short wine list and adequate selection of craft beers. I chose Arctic Char for my main course, which on reflection was not a good choice, as in my opinion it was rather tasteless. A couple of comments. If you looked for this restaurant, baed on the...

I'm sorry to hear that your Arctic Char wasn't full of flavor, Rod. That's certainly not what we're going for, and not the kind of feedback we usually get. I'll mention it to my kitchen team! As for the space and location of our place, I'm sorry it wasn't easily accessible. We'd like a little more space ourselves, but we... More
