Description: Hob Knob Restaurant, Stowe's first ski lodge, has a reputation for fine food and attentive service. The intimate dining room is dominated by a huge fieldstone fireplace, hand-hewn beams, and views of Mount Mansfield. Fully air-conditioned, but when the evenings turn cool both fireplaces come to life. Certified Angus Steaks, fresh fish, chicken, homemade bread and desserts. Open for dinner Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Groups of 10 or more any night with prior arrangement.

Reviewed January 4, 2011

The food was fantastic I really don't know where to start the soup of the day is made from scratch I had pumpkin soup delicious, bacon wrapped scallops WOW, LAMB
done to perfection, steak best in Stowe area, home made bread you can't get it
better,we had gingerbread pudding a must to have, and the friendliness of the family makes you feel right at home. Wouldn't waste my time or money to go to other restaurants, you get everything you want at the Hob Knob.

“great but expensive”
Reviewed August 8, 2010

Ate here only once as it was very expensive but it was perfect for a special night out. Food and service excellent, great steak and everything they did seemed gorgeous. Not a very diverse menu but well worth it for a treat.

“good food”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

The service is awesome. Very friendly and courteous. We had a salmon dish and the second dish escapes me. We also had a white wine and bacon wrapped scallops for an appy. Everything was good except the salmom was not cooked throughout. Not sure if this is how it was supposed to be served. Have eaten at many quality restaurants and have yet to have salmon served half raw. That aside, the price was very high. Would not go back for that reason alone.

“Average Steak place”
Reviewed July 10, 2010

Nice atmosphere, friendly wait staff and owner. Don't order the steak off the "specials menu" (not as advertised) e.g. the $30, 16 oz bone in rib eye was at best a 10 oz (B4 cooking) supermarket steak.

“Great Steak, great wine, and excellent yet comfortable service”
Reviewed January 20, 2010

Great Steak, great wine, and excellent yet comfortable service

This is a family run restaurant and inn. You feel like you are visiting old friends! The service is excellent but at the same time you feel like you are visiting a friend for dinner. The wine list is excellent and reasonable. The steaks are the best in the Stowe area.
