We were on a 2 week vacation through Lake Placid, Burlington, and Stowe. This was by far the best meal of our trip. It is Vermont dining at its finest. I say that for a reason. We have been coming to Vermont for years. We...More

This lovely restaurant is our favorite for special celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries. The atmosphere is warm and cozy inside, and, in the summer, the outdoor tables overlooking the waterfall are a great seasonal treat. The menu varies constantly, bringing to the table entrees...More

We have made a reservation well in advance and the restaurant was packed. The food was interesting and very tasty and the service was very attentive. The only con: it is fairly pricey and not always very generous with the portions.

We visit Hen of the Wood probably 6 times a year (It's a healthy half-hour drive from our house at Sugarbush ski resort.) It's always terrific (fully meriting its James Beards recognitions); and tonight was no exception. Hangar steak for three of us; halibut for...More
