We drove 75 miles in snow, took a gondola and then a snowcat to arrive at Game Creek for my husband's birthday. While we were disappointed that the snowfall prevented us from enjoying the spectacular view and sunset, we could not have been more pleased with our meal. The food was spectacular!

What a spectacular evening
What a spectacular evening we had. The ride to the restaurant was wonderful. Great views of the mountain... I recommend going at sunset if you can. Drinks at the bar were superb. Food was full of fun and interesting flavors and the service was commendable. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Could not have had a better evening. Highly recommend!

WOW! Typically I can be very critical but not here, Game Creek is my new #1 in Vail Valley. The staff was perfect - I was always served you from the proper side, plates all warmed or chilled properly, portions were perfect. Best Lamb & Salmon EVER! Spectacular view, snow cat ride was unforgettable! Pork Belly was the best!!!
I really, really enjoyed my meal here and hands down this will be the first restaurant I visit on my next trip. Kudos to the Chef and Staff, I really did not expect everything to be spot on, what a great surprise!

The good stuff: Dinner at
The good stuff: Dinner at Game Creek is a memorable experience, with great food and service. The bad stuff: Children's meals are free if they arrive with their parents before 6:00 p.m. When we arrived at 7:00, the atmosphere was more like an elementary school cafeteria than a fine restaurant. The kids-eat-for-free deal should require that they leave by 7:00! Also, this was a special birthday dinner, and I called the day before to request a candle on the celebrant's dessert, which the person I spoke to confirmed. I neglected to reiterate my request on arrival, however, and dessert was served with no candle or other recognition.

Like almost everything else
Like almost everything else Vail does, this was a wonderful experience. The food was well prepared and served. The chef 'specials' were a treat. The timing of the staff was impeccable - not rushed and not too slow.The view from our table was amazing, and the cat ride was very comfortable.

A must do when in Vail. The food is unique yet approachable although the wine pairings could be better.

Scenic and a dining gem
We always take our family or friends to this restaurant for the scenic views and ambience, but never the food. However this year the food was great to go along with the views and ambience. What a super job by the wait staff. We will for sure be going back next year. A superb dining experience in every respect.

Sunday brunch here is amazing. The selection of menu items is huge and everything is fresh. The omelet station is wonderful because you get exactly the ingredients you want. A nice touch is a complimentary Mimosa. Can't wait to enjoy brunch again, soon.

Absolutely top notch! Well worth taking in the view on the way up the gondola then short ride over to the restaurant. Great four-course meal with wine pairings. I cannot say enough about this restaurant other than probably one of the best restaurants my wife, son and I have been to in a good while. Exceptional staff, friendly and know how to provide great service. I wish we could have met the chef and shared what an amazing job he did for our palates. Highly recommend!

Kid friendly and romantic
Kid friendly a d romantic aren't two terms I would use in the same sentence. However, both perfectly sum up Game Creek. On a whim, I used Open Table to make reservations for our family if five at six pm on a Friday night. We took our three children ages 4.5, 3.5, and nine months and were blown away by the service, food, views, and welcome they gave our children. The meal took 2.5 hours and our kids were engaged the entire time-thanks to the staff. We have eaten all around the world and this easily makes one of our top meals. An absolute must while in Vail!

Everything I hoped it would be
I wanted something special for our tenth anniversary. My wife is quite the foodie and I've developed my palette from her so, great food was a must. A secluded building over the mtn. from Vail with a magnificent view of the Rockies. Service was superb. Our server was ver friendly and offered great recommendations and suggestions. My wife chose the Chef's tasting menu while I selected the four course meal. Every item was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. We also chose the wine pairings and were not disappointed. They were not stingy with their pours and if we finished a glass before the accompanying menu item was finished, they did not hesitate to supplant our pour. We are going back soon!

One of the Best!!
What a find! The trip there by gondola is fantastic and the food is superb! We had the three course dinner and every dish was superb. Plenty of food too. Great wine list. As good or better than Splendido and Beano's cabin
