I am not a huge stowe fan but I did like the blue donkey. It was a great little burger place, just what I wanted to have after a long day of sliding on ice.

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
