Very casual burger joint on the Mountain Road, across from Stoweflake Resort. You order at the counter and your food is delivered. Cozy setting inside, and it must be real nice to sit outside when the weather warms up. We shared a few dishes. Burgers were tasty & cooked perfectly. The pulled pork had a number of sauce choices.

Great fresh burgers with interesting topping combos. Fries are hand cut and delicious. Order at counter but there is a seating area with fireplace

A place to get a great burger. Especially good in warmer weather due to the outdoor seating area. The service was good, not great, but the burgers and the smoked chicken wings are just yummy.

The Blue Donkey has some of the best burgers I have ever eaten. Order at the counter and they will bring your order to your table. these burgers were great, I had the Rodeo and my wife had the Southwest and both of us were happy with our choices. Burger with fries and topping $12.00 and well worth it.

We were looking for lunch after having two spa treatments at Stoweflake resort and spa. Speciality Burgers looked good so we went in. The prices were a bit steep $12+ for a burger and $7 for a hard cider. However they sure tasted great. Hand made with great toppings. So, give them a try!

Because the eating establishment my daughter and I intended to dine at was closed, we decided to give the Blue Donkey I try. It is not fancy or fine dining, by any means; however, I have to say I was pleasantly impressed with the food. The service was quick and there was a good menu selection. For two wraps, fries...

Had great burgers and fries here!! Burgers are large and delicious and fries are well above average! Wait on food at lunchtime so need to allow for that. This is not a fast food restaurant.

I love a good burger and fries but to take 30+ minutes to serve when there is little customers is crazy. Not very personal staff and it's more serve yourself. So burgers get a 8 and service a 2

We visited during operating hours (3pm) during the Stowe Arts & Craft Festival. The eating area was about half full of diners. As soon as we walked in we were told, "We're not serving food now". No explanation.
