A place to get a great burger. Especially good in warmer weather due to the outdoor seating area. The service was good, not great, but the burgers and the smoked chicken wings are just yummy.

Had great burgers and fries here!! Burgers are large and delicious and fries are well above average! Wait on food at lunchtime so need to allow for that. This is not a fast food restaurant.

I love a good burger and fries but to take 30+ minutes to serve when there is little customers is crazy. Not very personal staff and it's more serve yourself. So burgers get a 8 and service a 2

We visited during operating hours (3pm) during the Stowe Arts & Craft Festival. The eating area was about half full of diners. As soon as we walked in we were told, "We're not serving food now". No explanation.

I have never been there outside of ski season, nor for dinner. I would be surprised however if you needed reservations and surprised if they even took them. It's more of a fast food type place. Order at the counter grab a... More
