About

Welcome to Harrison's Restaurant & Bar. Tucked away on Main Street in the heart of historic Stowe village, we are steps away from shopping, local theater, concerts, the Stowe Recreation Path and the famous Green Mountain Inn. Once you step downstairs and experience our unique parlor-like space , you will be greeted by caring and experienced servers that will make sure your dining experience is a memorable one. Our comfortable dining room has quiet booths, candle-lit copper lanterns, a vibrant fully-stocked bar with 100+ bottle wine list, craft beers, and a fireplace on those cold winter days.
The interior walls display original historical photos of Stowe dating from the Kneale Family's 80 years living and working in the Stowe area.

We loved everything!! The mussels were fabulous, as well as the crabcake appetizer. We had the venison special, pork tenderloin, and scallops and risotto. Everything was delicious. Our waiter was awesome, very nice and helpful.

We had an excellent meal at Harrison’s. I’ll start off by saying the service was top notch - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The space is attractive and cozy with lots of wood paneling. The food matched the service and ambiance. The salads were delicious, both the garden salad and the Caesar. We enjoyed both the NY strip steak and the curry-crusted halibut. It doesn’t get much better than profiteroles with maple ice cream for dessert. The wine list is thoughtfully selected, ranging from affordable to high end. By-the-glass pours are generous.

Harrison's is our favorite restaurant in Stowe. The mussels are the best I've ever had! The atmosphere is cozy, the owner and waitstaff are the best, and prices are reasonable! In the nice weather you can sit outside and enjoy downtown Stowe or enjoy the beautiful restaurant inside.

Reservations are needed and so glad we made one through Open Table! We were looking for something casual but with great food and we found it at Harrison’s! It’s a little hidden, not much parking, and down a staircase... but what awaits at the bottom was a wonderful surprise. It was our anniversary and I requested chocolate cake for dessert to be brought without asking. They were so sweet and actual told us it was on the house! If you are planning a visit to Vermont, definitely check it out!!!

We have loved dining at Harrison's for a decade. They recently renovated the space and it's as authentic as always. Even after we moved here full-time, it's still a locals favorite that's packed every night. Great food, generous portions, awesome beer and wine list.

Very pleasant surroundings. The menu had plenty of choice and most people should be able to find a dish that they like. It was unfortunate that not everything on the menu was available on the night that we visited. The price range was good with sufficient options to suit most people's pockets. The best of the three casual dining restaurants that we visited in Stowe.

Best food around. Was a great treat and did not disappoint. Even dessert was amazing. Steak tips were perfect as was the chicken with cheddar sauce. Raspberry pie and carrot cake topped it all off.
