  • Great Steak

    The New York strip steak was so good. Cooked to perfection for your liking. I had it medium, hot pink center. The food, the service and the place was great. The only thing they should take of is the booth seats with the colored duct tape, but probably a lot of people bring their kids so it is understandable.

    Drink order was late, then duplicated. Food came cold. Had to ask for at least a warm bowl of mashed potatoes. Appetizer came after the meals. When told food was cold, response was poor. When cold food arrived, we should have just left. However, it was a long trip and long day with a hungry family.

    First visit to Charlie B's. We loved it. The booth we had was comfortable and private. No problem having a conversation here. My husband and I both started with the clam and corn chowder. Great choice! Piping hot and loaded with clams. I had a light salad and added a crab cake. Love crab cakes and this is one of the better ones I've had. My husband had BBQ ribs. Huge portion which he couldn't finish. Restaurant had no problem substituting mashed potatoes for the standard French Fries. Only thing we'd do differently next time is ask for the BBQ sauce on the side as the ribs were heavily coated (but the sauce was great). Good choices available from wine list and local beers. Prices reasonable. Service very pleasant. Would definitely go back.

    Delightful restaurant in Stowe. The food was well prepared, and the menu quite varied. Service was excellent and it was very quiet, but it was difficult to judge those factors because there were very few tables that were occupied.

    We went for lunch on a holiday weekend & sat outside. My spouse had the tomato-lemon bisque & a burger. I had the mushroom ravioli with red pepper/gouda sauce. The soup was creamy & lemony; very good. The burger was solid. I received a lot of ravioli (maybe 14 -- 16) but they were heavy & just OK. Service was not the best. We didn't receive water when we arrived; my spouse had to ask for it after our meals arrived. A large table next to us didn't get their waters re-filled & had to wait at least 5 minutes after their food arrived before they received silverware. It appeared that the restaurant didn't expect a busy weekend.

    Dined on 5/24/2014
    We only had one lunch at the Pub -- not the restaurant (not open for lunch -- when we were there, anyway) -- and we were pretty underwhelmed. Their advertising in local hotel brochures, area-attraction maps, and so on, perhaps created unrealistic expectations. In fairness: the food was good (just "good"), and the service (after a not-so-great start) turned out to be OK. Prices were what you would expect in a resort area. Atmosphere? Well, really, it's just one more eating place in a busy ski- and summer-resort area that's loaded with other nearby (and farther-away) eating places.

    Wile staying in Stowe for the week we tried a few resturants on the aera and tried Charlie B's . But after sitting down and looking through a short menu didn't really see much that I wanted or my fiancé we decided that we didn't want to stay. The staff was nice no complaints in that department, but the atmosphere was a little dated for me. If they can update their appearance and add some more choices to the menu I might go back to try it again.

    Basic burger and sandwich menu. Very good french onion soup. Service seemed a bit "sleepy" but got better as more customers filed in. It is a few miles out of the village, as are most of the many new choices for lunch. We are not skiers but it is an obvious choice for groups trudging in after skiing for plates of wings and fries. Lots of large booths for big parties. Overall, it was just what we were looking for.

    The food was good, it was fairly quiet until they had a young man singing and playing the guitar which was very nice. We met my cousin and her friend there and we were very involved with conversation so we spent a lot of time. We were not pushed out, bothered, it was enjoyable. I would recommend this restaurant.

    Although most the tables weren't full (not crowded) our lunch order did not arrive for an hour after we ordered. The waitress was unapologetic and did not check in much. After an hour we found the manager and told him to either cancel our order or pack it to go- they packed it to-go without any condiments and did not take anything off the bill.

    We were excited to try it, because it was a few feet from our hotel room. It went downhill from there. The French onion soup was tasteless, like dishwater. When we mentioned it to the waitress, she said that she didn't like French onion soup, and charged us $7.00. I chose a pork medallion dish for $26.00, figuring that it would be something special. It wasn't. There were 3 slices which were tough and overcooked. Thrown onto the plate were 4 stalks of asparagus and a scoop of mashed potatoes which were forgettable. All in all, it was insulting for the prices paid. I'm still waiting for the refund for the soup, but won't hold my breath. Drive past this one if you have any choice, unless you have 3 screaming hungry kids.

    We did not have the greatest dining experience. I had been there before and the food was fantastic, especially the New England Haddock. Unfortunately, this evening it was mediocre at best. Portion size was not like the previous experience and my husband was left still wondering where his dinner was. Also, the atmosphere was way too noisy. We had a 7:00 pm reservation and I did not know that there was live entertainment at 8:00. So we really did not have good conversation. Way too loud for us. We would probably not go there again, unless I went without my husband. Sorry.
