We stayed at a nearby hotel and read their book of menus. Sunset was our choice.

We arrived on a busy evening, stood at the "please wait to be seated" sign and waited. A long time. Someone came and said tables were about to open up, and shortly we saw that this was true: a few tables did open up. We were able to flag someone down and ask if we could sit, but were told "the kitchen is really busy now and you'll have to wait either way". I said we'd prefer to wait while sitting. After some argument (why?), we were seated.

They have nightly dinner specials. We went on a Thursday, which meant that the special was a half pound burger with 2 toppings, fries, lettuce, tomato, pickle for $6. Tough to beat, so we ordered it and it was above average. We also got the Three-Item barbecue combo with beef ribs, pork ribs and brisket. Also very good, and not very expensive.

Good beer selection.

From the outside the Sunset isn't one of the nicest places in Stowe. The food however was very good. I had the Kansas City competition plater, which included ribs, brisket, chicken and pulled pork. My wife had the signature burger. We both left full. I had their hammerhead beer which was excellent. The service was good especially Tony.

Went there on the advice of other fellow travelers and was not dissappointed in the quality of this bar--q. Had the 3 meat platter with some fantastic mac n cheese.

We celebrated our 40th Anniversary here with a filet mignon dinner. What a different experience. It came on a slab of wood for the plate. On this was a brick sized black Vermont granite which was heated. They pan sear the meat and bring to you to slice and cook to your preference.

The meat was favorable and very tender. Great place for a meal!

We felt there was a good ambience on entering with a lot of people at the bar and various screens showing sport. Had a comfortable booth. A very pleasant contrast to some restaurants in Stowe which seemed pretty dead!

Waitresses were cheerful and attentive.

My son enjoyed his steak on a hot stone. I enjoyed the BBQ shrimp and my husband his beef ribs. Liked the beef and veg soup more than the potato bacon. Salad side was tasty, fries were average.

Overall good portion size and enjoyable meal.
