Don't know how we stumbled apon this place but it wasn't bad. Its definitely a place that the locals hang out at. It has pool table and a great jukebox . They have live music on sat night although we didn't stay for it. Next time in the area we may check it out again.

Stowe has several local bars and 2 dive bars I rate this one as a dive bar, the crowd ,the music, the service and the atmosphere make this a fun place. And that is not a bad thing. There is no doubt you get what you pay for here, normal prices for beer and liquor. If you want something chef prepared this isn't the place. But if you just finished your work day, got off the slopes, are tired and don't want to put up with any BS this is the place for you. Large, open, outside deck pool tables, jukebox I think (can't remember- lol), and your typical food fare served on paper plates.

The best things about this place are the pool tables and the best juke box in the area. Make no mistake, it's a local's bar, nothing fancy here.

This is Stowe's local dive bar and is great if you want a taste of the late night drunken debauchery. Also one of the only places to grab a late night meal if you get out of work after mid night. Make sure you go when Dennis is working - super nice guy - always happy to pour you a drink and make you some pretty darn good food right up to close which is always 2 am!

I am not a local but I felt like it after going to the yard. Good food, good selection of beer, and the bartenders are so friendly. If you go say hi to Dennis for me!!
