Newly renovated and located at the heart of the Stratton base lodge, Grizzly’s is a great place to wrap up the day with the mountain still in view. Indulge in the Wood Fired Nachos- I recommend the BQQ version – paired with one of twelve Vermont craft brews on tap. And enjoy the architecture. Yes, that’s right. the architecture. It’s rare to find an après bar the is featured in Architectural Digest for it’s “timber framing and vaulted ceilings.” It was named “The Most Beautifully Designed Bar in Vermont” in the November 2018 issue.” – Mama Sarah
The couple behind the James-Beard nominated SoLo Farm and Table also runs Honeypie. Located in an old gas station on Route 30 in Rawsonville, Honeypie is the creation of Wesley and Chloe Genovart. Their local food, fast-food restaurant offers a tasty selection of burgers, lobster rolls, chicken sandwiches, house-made sausage sandwiches, fries, beer, wine, soft drinks, and milkshakes. Perfect for lunch or après ski. – Mama Erica
Located in the Village, Fire Tower is a must-stop for dinner, especially if you’re staying at the resort. Make a reservation and enjoy craft cocktails, and surprisingly special seafood dishes. I’ve been several times and am always impressed with the sushi-grade fish options like the Tune Nicoise, Seafood Timbale, and Ahi Nachos. The strip steak isn’t a bad choice either! You can’t go wrong with their creative and eclectic menu. – Mama Sarah
The Winhall Market located on Route 30 in the heart of Bondville is an easy stop for coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and baked goods on your way to Stratton in the morning. The market, which calls itself a “full service country store,” also features an expanded deli counter offering sandwichces made to order, cold cuts, meats and more. The market also sells as basic groceries, gourmet foods, breads, wine, beer, sweets, and more. – Mama Erica
