Located inside The Historic Stowe Inn, which is listed on the National Historic Register, Stowe Inn River House Steak and Seafood plates up farm-to-table dishes for travelers or anyone else looking to relax with some wine and an appetizer. Instead of blaring a foghorn at your table, you can start a meal off with mussels cooked in white wine and served with garlic-herb butter sauce and enjoy the beautiful 360-degree view of Stowe, the nearby river, and the four acres of surrounding manicured grounds popular with weddings. Entrees follow in the form of pecan-crusted salmon or slow-roasted prime rib—the restaurant's specialty. You can end your visit with a drink at Grant's Bar in honor of the whiskey-loving president for whom the bar is named. The 35-foot antique mahogany bar is rumored to have been originally located near Grant's Tomb in New York City, and was refurbished and installed at the restaurant in 2003.
