The outdoor seating here was great. We got a bunch of appetizers for lunch and they were all fantastic. Overall, this restaurant had a cool vibe. Get the duck wontons, they were crazy awesome!


I was on a motorcycle ride and decided to stop at the backyard and I'm so glad I did. The food and staff we're great. I got the duck wontons and a burger, both were delicious. I will certainly be back soon.

Nice spot! Great burger selection, apps and TOTS! See a whole section of the menu for the tots! Reasonable pricing. Spacious place. Worth trying! Casual spot in Stowe!

Burger and fish tacos were excellent! Highly recommend for a very casual dining experience and low key bar. It's basically one large room. Staff were very friendly.

If you die and never go to the Backyard and eat their potato kegs, I’m sad for you. This is the friendliest place we visited in Vermont. Full stop. Our server was helpful and made great recommendations (Buffa - dilla, don’t miss it either!). Thanks Backyard for the laid back vibes for these two Southerners!


My wife and I went in to grab a drink and see what it was like. We were not disappointed at all as the staff is very attentive and friendly. The beer selection and specialty cocktails were awesome. We had the Poutine and Duck Wontons and they were delicious!! Glad we went in and will come back when we return to Stowe!!

Stumbled upon this place today and it was a great find. Small menu but everything we had was wonderful. We had the Duck Wontons, Fried Brussels and shared a Cuban with Tater Tots. Good beer list and drink menu. Servers were super friendly. Found out they were also open for dinner. The place is a mix of locals and tourist. Worth a stop for sure.

Food was good for the type of dishes they serve (nachos, tacos, tots). Cozy place. A little too loud for my family, though. If you're looking for a more lively environment then it's a good choice.


Hubby and I had a date night and found this cool place on Mt rd. Very friendly vibe. Awesome poutine tots and a beautiful hard cider...literally blushing pink like rosé.

Delicious Nom Noms... Popcorn Chicken is amazing. Tots and Queso.. Swoon!

Really great burger and tots.


$120 for 5 lemon drop shots…. the bartender for sure ripped off me and my friends. No shot in Stowe, Vermont should cost $24 each. The staff (at least the ones that I encountered) were unfriendly and the whole atmosphere made me feel really uncomfortable from the moment we walked in.

This place is where you arrive hungry and leave with new friends and a full belly. Saw some young hip staff serving with a smile and easy going attitudes. Tried to eat at a different restaurant and their wait was over an hour. We were seated within 10 minutes! Pet friendly and has cool outdoor seating. Indoor decor is trendy and outdoorsy! Such a cool vibe here

Went here on a whim and boy was it a good whim. The food is absolutely delicious. I got the duck wontons which were amazing, and I also HIGHLY recommend the pulled pork tots. All around delicious food. The drinks were awesome too and fairly priced. If I’m back in the area, this is a spot I’d most definitely return to.


My husband and I were thrilled to find this place! Good vegetarian food options, excellent beer selection, lovely back patio for outside dining during Covid, beat the huge crowds clogging Stowe.
