Disappointing seating arrangement for just the two of us at large round table.

We went for the prime rib special and when the waitress came we asked her if there was any specials that day and she said no we don’t have any specials tonight. So we order the steak which was to die for. After we order we heard a waiter tell another party that they had prime rib for the special that day. We thought that was odd that one knew and one didn’t. We later mentioned it to the bartender at the bar and he said he was going to take care of the matter.

Very nice atmosphere. Unfortunately they were short staffed and our waiter was doing the work of a bus-boy and bartender. He did a great job despite being worked extra hard. Wiener Schnitzel was fantastic. This is our second trip to Stowe and our second time at the Trapp Family Lodge.

We were surprised that a “family” lodge would have such first rate food. The meals were top notch and they had a pianist who played beautifully.

We were celebrating our son passing the bar exam. It was a great evening—food, service, unobtrusive piano music, and ambiance were all excellent. It made for a very special evening.

We ate here twice and both times the food was excellent, but the service was poor. The first night the server was incredibly rude and the second night a different server brought the food and then disappeared. We were the only couple in the dining room the first night, and one of very few parties the second night. Such a disappointment considering the prices and the reputation. Staffing shortages do not explain rudeness, disrespect, and someone not doing his/her job.

The waiter was great as was the ambiance. My shrimp ceviche was very small. And the shrimp were not jumbo. What was advertised as heirloom tomatoes was in fact a chopped up combination of tomato and onions. The plantain chips appeared to have dumped out of a bag. Our gps directed us to the Bier Hall. Not the main dining room. I would not return

If you are looking for a restaurant where the ambiance is as important as the food, this is the place to go! Not only is the food delicious, but the views, the way the staff is dressed, the outstanding service, the sheer beauty of the lodge, and the history that is shared on its walls make this a really memorable experience.

We brought our son who is 1.5 year old and had to wait close to 45 minutes for our food after telling the waitress immediately after we sat that we needed to make it fast. The only part that saved us was the fact that my son was able to watch Sesame Street on one of our phones. We were there for 2.5 hours which was way too long. Others whom seated and ordered after us received their food before us.

Service was very slow and waiter wasn’t very friendly or attentive. I had the filet and it was very dry and obviously sat under the warmer for quite some time. Serving was maybe 3oz. Very small amount of food. Husband has the schnitzel and it was just ok- dried out a bit. The kids had chicken fingers and a burger. Burger was wonderful. Chicken fingers were like ones from frozen section of grocery store. We won’t be back - for the price the service and the food should have been better.

We very much enjoy the vibe in the dining room at the Trapp Family Lodge. The breakfast buffet was good but not outstanding. The staff was new but tried very hard to make sure we were happy. I would highly recommend as a destination1 Hope to return for dinner during the hoiday season.

The food was very good.
However If you are looking for ambiance, and a classy dining experience this is not the place to go.
When waking through the doors of the lodge through to the dining room, the best I can say is that the lodge looks tired and a bit run down. It is stated that the lodge was rebuilt after a fire in 1981, and it appears that nothing has been done since then.
It is a shame because the property has such beautiful views over the mountains. I’m glad I dined there but for the money, I don’t think it was worth it.

Missing food items. The menu choices were too vague. No bartender was available for 2 nights . You required more help. The female waitress was working her ta off. The male waiter could have been a bit more attentive.

Waiter was pleasant but confused I had to ask if they had specials he said no. So I said I heard the waiter 2 tables away tell them tonight's special is but couldn't really hear what it was. Oh then he said oh ya we have one and told us. Choices on menu were not great and extremely expensive.

The Lodge Dining Room was a very comfortable place to unwind after a day of traveling. It is a cozy space and feels very European. Our food was delicious; my husband had a steak and I had the night's special, goulash. Our server was professional and attentive. There was a nice selection of wines and cocktails. We thoroughly enjoyed it!
