What to Eat in Stowe, VT

American cuisine reigns supreme in Stowe. In fact, many restaurants serve hearty meals and classic pub grub in spaces that resemble traditional ski lodges. Dishes made with locally sourced items, such as maple syrup and apples, are also showcased seasonally on menus. Popular Stowe eateries that serve American fare include McCarthy's Restaurant, Harrison's Restaurant & Bar and The Bistro at Ten Acres. If you'd rather enjoy a sweet snack, take a tour of Ben & Jerry's Waterbury Factory, which includes an ice cream sample.

Although most Stowe restaurants feature American items, a few specialty cuisines are available. Swiss Fondue by Heinz specializes in authentic Swiss bites (including its namesake), while Sushi Yoshi offers sushi rolls, tempura and other Japanese staples. And at Trattoria La Festa, visitors can savor Italian-inspired dishes like minestrone soup, homemade gnocchi and veal Marsala.

To quench your thirst (if you're 21 or older), visit one of Vermont's craft breweries. Three reside in Stowe's town limits: The Alchemist Brewery, Idletyme Brewing Company and von Trapp Brewing. The Alchemist Brewery and Idletyme Brewing Company serve a variety of brews, while von Trapp Brewing – which is part of the Trapp Family Lodge property – focuses solely on Austrian lagers.
