We opened Hen of the Wood - Waterbury in October 2005. For myself, it was the opportunity to put together a restaurant that would be the culmination of everything we had casually discussed for several years; a warm inviting atmosphere, a historic and visually appealing setting, seamless service and most importantly outstanding wine and beautiful food. We imagined a casual yet professional staff and food cooked from as close to the source as possible. For our team it would be the beginning of a commitment to the amazing farmers, cheese makers and others who make Vermont so special.

Fast forward to today and now we also have Hen of the Wood - Burlington and Doc Ponds Eat & Drink in Stowe.

Our goal is to provide a true Vermont dining experience at all of our establishments, and showcase the regions most vibrant foods. 

We look forward to cooking for you!
