We spent 5 days in Stowe and carefully looked for the best restaurants to go. Fortunately, our last dinner was in the Hen of the wood so we can say that we saved the best for the last. The service was excellent, the food, although...More

Came for business so stopped at this place for dinner. Nice patio seating next to a creek - beautiful! Food was really good. I ordered the arugula salad, halibut, Syrah, mixed berry sorbet. Check out the pictures!
