In Stowe for an over night stay - looking for a charming restaurant with great food - nothing too odd though

    Michael's on the Hill or Hen of the Wood (Waterbury, 15 minutes from Stowe)

      I second both of these recommendations, with a heavier bit on Hen of the Wood only because I've been there most recently. :)

      I had a delicious meal at Mr. Pickwicks on Mountain Road this past summer. We sat at the bar and definitely found the place to be charming-esp the bartender- great guy really knowledgeable.
      Also had an incredible meal at Solstice in the Mountain Lodge- pricey but their tasting menu was amazing.

        I have heard The Alchemist is great - do you agree?

          Alchemist is great for a few craft brews and pub food done right.

            I'd go for Hen of the Wood or Michael's over Pickwick's any day of the week. Pickwick's isn't bad, it's just that the others are superior.
