It doesn't look like much from the outside, but well worth a visit. They have a large indoor bar/eating area as well as an equally large outside seating area. Seating is first come first served, seat yourself. Our server was Lilly and she was awesome. She was a great change from the snobbish and "I don't give a crap" attitude we experienced in our several previous Stowe meals over the last couple days. Unfortunately, we're leaving Stowe tomorrow and the Backyard doesn't serve breakfast or we'd be back there again. Totally laid back but very attentive interaction with people who seemed to care. The menu was varied and while it is fairly typical bar / pub food, everything we had was served hot and was very flavorful. Among us, we had the BBQ burger, the salmon sandwich, the loaded tots, the Buffalo chicken tots and ice cold beer. By far the best meal experience we had here. I'll proudly do some advertising for them by wearing their t-shirt back home in Seattle. Great job team!

Absolutely worst experience - terrible service and food was MEH except for the duck wontons which were delicious and the burger which was OK. Ambiance is nice. We are visiting Warren,VT for a few days. We arrived at the restaurant on a Wednesday at 7:45 PM. It took about 10 minutes for our server to come to the table and get drink orders/appetizer orders. By 8:15 we got our drinks and placed order for food. We ordered duck wontons for the appetizer which were really good but arrived at ~8:40. By 8:55 we were still waiting on drinks refills and tables around us that had arrived after us were all getting their meals. Nobody came to the table to check on us (group of 3 adults +1 infant) or give us a status update on the order. We asked one of the other servers about our order and she said she would check but she never came back to the table. In the meantime, we witnessed one gentleman who works there (curly grey haired man) literally use his bare hands to grab two burger buns and check under them and then proceed to take the order to a table where two other men were sitting. Meanwhile, we asked our server for the check for the wontons and drinks because we were tired of waiting and she told us to not worry about it but we did not want to leave without paying for what we had, and we considered driving another 30 min to a surrounding area for whatever might be open but past 9PM the dining options in and around the area are very limited. At that point somehow the chicken sandwich magically made it to the table - it was dry, tasteless and over cooked. We chose to stay because we are staying about 30 min away and had little to no dining options at this point (9:15PM). We ordered a chef salad with chicken and instead came topped with pulled pork. The burger (whiskey bbq) was decent as were the sweet potato fries. To make it “better” they took 50% off the check but honestly that does nothing to the fact of what we witnessed with the food being touched by a server who is also coming in contact with credit cards from multiple tables. GROSS. I sincerely hope you improve your service and have your customers’ best interest in mind.Do yourself a favor and eat elsewhere when visiting Stowe.

My friend picked up a pulled pork sandwich through the Everyone eats program and really enjoyed it. She kept recommending it so we stopped by today. My picky teen loved it sooo much she said things like: 'The best sandwich I've ever eaten..I don't want to eat anything else because I want the taste to last in my mouth forever...this is the best salad I've ever gotten from a restaurant (her family owns several)... this is sooooo good!!!' I'm a vegetarian so I just tried the salad. It was better than most and included ripe chopped tomato, shredded cabbage and carrots and a homemade ranch dressing. It was crisp and delicious and very fresh. Thanks so much for participating in this program. I will definitely return (she will insist) and look forward to trying the tacos.

Really great burger and I like burgers a bunch so I'm kind of fussy. This was perfect, thanks!

Although the beer selection was not as diverse as some comparable restaurants in Stowe, the food here was great despite seeming like simple fair. My wife had the whiskey BBQ burger, and I had the chicken bacon avocado sandwhich. Both of us opted for the tots. The food was extremely tasty and the service was outstanding. Classic rock and sports on the TVs rounded out a relaxing meal.

Had a great time here while on a trip with my wife, sister, and brother-in-law. The tacos were excellent, I liked being able to mix and match which ones I wanted. The duck wontons were incredible and we almost got more but we were all too full. Our server, Renee, was awesome; fun and personable. Definitely going to stop back next time we’re in town!

Food was great, drinks were great, was about pricey, but it's Stowe, so that's not really a surprise.

We went for a few drinks on a low key Sunday evening at the end of ski season.Great atmosphere, impeccable service. Plus 10 great local bars on tap!

The food is amazing. It was honestly one of the best meals we had during our stay in Stowe. I just wish they had more of a beer selection.

Don’t have a bad thing to say about this place. I’m so glad I found my Stowe go to.
