Crop Vermont Bistro & Brewery was built in 1830 as a blacksmith shop and has transformed into a cider mill then a youth hostel and finally into the restaurant it is today. Chefs Michael Kloeti and Jason Bissell are experts at producing delicious comfort food that everyone will enjoy. Quality beer is brewed on site, and the brewmaster, Will Gilson, is in charge of all the beer offerings. To make sure that the vegetables in its dishes are fresh, Crop Vermont Bistro & Brewery uses an onsite vegetable garden. Popular dishes and appetizers include fried pickles, pulled pork, brisket Reuben and cheese fritters.
With the family-friendly atmosphere, anyone from locals to tourists can relax, share stories and take in all the history of Crop Vermont Bistro & Brewery. Diners can also order takeout here.
food was great, was seated quickly and items came out of kitchen in a timely manner
We loved this place, loved the beer and the food was good. Service however was rough :( We will go back someday I'm sure!
I'm not sure what the details are all about, but the Stowe locals do not like Crop! We were deterred from dining here recently, but went anyway - and greatly enjoyed it! I very much enjoyed the scallops and my friends liked their dinners as well. They brew their own beer. I had the Oktoberfest and was delighted. We were seated exactly at our reservation time. Service was friendly and fast. No complaints!
I should have taken the online reviews to heart. Poor and slow service, including the Manager. Very disappointing food. Cold fish & chips. Overdone flat iron. Bad swordfish.
There are too many good restaurants in Stowe. This one will not survive.
We had no idea what to expect and here it is, our discovery of a gem at a walking distance from our usual motel when visiting Stowe.
The fireplace and cozy atmosphere were so soothing on such an unusually cold September night.
The food was amazing, the beer sampler was very good, the waiter gave impeccable service and the hostess, Maria, was so welcoming and professional !
We will definitely go back next time we are in the area, and of course recommend this place !
We had the Pork shoulder egg roll that you definitely want to go back for more. The kale salad was good, I liked that the kale was finely chopped. For entrees we had the gnocchis and the braised pork shank. Both were delicious and unique. Will make this a regular stop on our next trip to VT.
Reservation for 6 changed to 8, but they were very accommodating. When we got there we decided to eat outside, the 10 minute wait was more like a half hour, but our group was happy to enjoy the beautiful fresh air and scenery. It was the end of the season so the y were a little under staffed. Server was friendly and helpful. There was no bread but the server knew we were hungry, so she brought hot pretzels for us to sample while we waited. Once it got dark we decided to move inside and they were again helpful and accommodating. There were two vegetarian items on the menu. The Gnochi was more like breakfast potatoes - not what we expected. The quinoa was a much better and filling option. Salads were great and muscles were good too!
Although the flavor of the steak was good it was very unfortunate that it was not hot, not even very warm actually. We felt like it sat for quite a while on the counter before the server delivered it. It's a nice restaurant and I'd give it another try if we were in the area.
Even through a little chill, this was a good choice for a group of 6. Big table - outside - excellent beer - great food. From mussels to flat-iron steaks to gnocchi; something for everyone and cooked to peoples desires. We would go back in a heartbeat.
Just keeps getting better. Excellent beer also! Always go when I'm in the area.
