Looking for some good, hearty family fare

Who we are:

me-29, DH-30, my boys, almost 3 and 1.

We'll be visiting Stowe at the end of July. I plan to book the Golden Eagle Resort.

We're looking for some good places to dine...casual, home-cookin', stick-to-your-ribs kinda places. We'll mostly be in the Stowe area, probably head to Burlington for a day.

Breakfast comes with our stay, but we just might skip it and try something else if you insist :)

We're big fans of The Shed. The menu is varied, everything from burgers to steaks. Not world class by any means but good, reasonably priced food and friendly service.

Take your kids to McCarthy's for pancakes! This is a great place for a casual lunch, too. They also have a temting dessert case.

Both of the above are good suggestions.

The Sunset Grill is also popular -- but it's not very --er-- polished. But good for families.

Also, Pie In the Sky is an excellent pizza joint -- and it's just across the road from the Golden Eagle. Great place for kids.
