Sooo I am not the best reference if you are a carnivore. But: if you are a vegetarian looking for a yummy veggie burger, this is the place for you. They will make any of their burgers using vegetarian patties, and have gluten free bread...More

The boyfriend and i popped into Blue Donkey just as we were leaving Stowe to head back to Boston — we figured we needed sustenance for the road. I got the brisket while my boyfriend got the burger. He received his burger pretty quickly but...More

We arrived in Stowe fairly late in the evening and didn't realize that most restaurants shut fairly early, so quickly stopped in at the blue donkey. They were just shutting up and getting ready to go home but were more than happy to stay open...More

Good food, but not fast food. Great outside seating. Burgers are great. Grilled cheese flavorless. Salads are the healthiest items on the menu.

Had lunch here while in Stowe. A long line was handled quickly by friendly staff who had great conversation while taking orders. Menu is simple, but enough choices to satisfy anyone. Burgers were cooked to order. A bit charred for my taste, but flavorful. Lots...More

I have never been there outside of ski season, nor for dinner. I would be surprised however if you needed reservations and surprised if they even took them. It's more of a fast food type place. Order at the counter grab a... More
