    Our annual tradition with another couple end the season with diner at South Mountain Grill, also birthday celebration for the wives. We have been doing this since 2005, all agree South Mountain Grill the best on the mountain since Red Fox Inn. Good thing we did have diner there as tradition this past Saturday night as Snowshoe announced not going to reopen for first weekend of April yesterday morning (3/31) on facebook. 7 months till next ski season! Will be up over the summer for at least one diner out.

    I don't know why there can't be a great restaurant around SnowShoe. My daughter's fish was overcooked and extremely dry. My wife's chicken wasn't very good. My rack of veal wasn't hitting on much. Great atmosphere though and probably the only place you can book reservations on the mountain. Our server was great.

    This restaurant at Snowshoe Resort, in WV. It is a nice break from the crowded village area and the restaurants in the village. I would go back to this restaurant again, for sure

    Dined on 2/16/2014
    Quality of the food varied from mediocre to poor. The $43 lamb loin was the worst part. Ordered it medium rare, it was well done. The flavor was a bit gamey (and I love lamb) and it was a poor cut of meat - tough and seemed to be cut along the grain. The flatiron steak was okay and the twice baked potato it came with was good. I don't mind the high prices since it's a resort restaurant but they really need to bring up the quality of the food if they want to maintain this kind of menu.

    I made a reservation over a month in advance for a Valentine's Day celebration (on 2/15). We arrived on time and were promptly seated right by the bathroom and the front door (which opened every 30 seconds or so, blasting cold air onto our table; why they refuse to close the curtains they have hanging there is beyond me!; we did ask that they be closed, and were granted our wish, for about 30 seconds, when the cranky hostess opened them again). How romantic! We did ask to be reseated, but were not accommodated by the cranky hostess. Fortunately our server was excellent, as was the food. As one might suspect, the door/bathroom tables are somewhat lacking in ambience. Not exactly what we had in mind for celebrating Valentine's Day.

    We lived this place so much on our first night that we decided to come again for our last dinner. The food far exceeds any other restaurant at Snowshoe. It is priced accordingly but the portions are quite substantial. The wait was very reasonable unlike the restaurants in the village. Unless you are staying at the south mountain you will need to drive or shuttle.

    We recently dined at the South Mountain Grille for our Valentine's dinner while skiing at Snowshoe. We had reservations and were seated immediately. However, we were placed at a high-top, two person table that was against a side wall in the bar section. It felt very out of place and being in the bar area made for a noisy meal. Our food was good and was served promptly but with good spacing between our appetizers, main courses and dessert. Our waitress forgot to offer us bread and we had to ask for some once we saw another waiter bringing it out to his tables of guests. If we go back to Snowshoe in the future, I would not hesitate to make reservations at this restaurant again. (Although I would ask for a better table position.)

    Anyone who misses the Red Fox Restaurant you will be very happy with the menu and food here. We were told the chef was the sous chef at the Red Fox. Yes on the higher side price wise but we find it well worth it, have been twice this season with friends and family just the other night, all agree much better than the previous restaurant. Now our two favorite places to eat on special occasions while at Snowshoe are South Mountain Grill and the Elk River restaurant.

    We have to make 2 reservations at SMG every trip to Snowshoe Mountain Resort. I had the potato gnocchi in cream sauce with crumbled blue cheese and walnuts, hubby had the filet, both delish! Good size portions as well. Desert is a must - the chocolate banana cake is perfect with coffee. Also a MUST is the cottage cheese bisque! YUMMo! See you next year SMG!

    Dined on 1/30/2014
    We've eaten at this restaurant many times over the last 5 years. We can only describe its quality as inconsistent. This last and final visit (we won't be back) required me to send back my mojito as the lime juice appeared to be missing. They brought the drink back with some Roses' lime juice added. Since the lime slice on the side of the glass was embarrassingly old, I can only assume that someone forgot to order limes. I sent it back with a request for an old fashioned instead. It was acceptable but nothing special. The Greek bruschetta was actually very good. The gnocchi was too heavy to finish. The bill came to nearly $250 for four people. Overpriced for the quality. The bright lights over the table next to us was annoying.

    I took my girlfriend on a ski trip for her birthday and we enjoyed her birthday dinner here. I had pork tenderloin in a cherry balsamic reduction sauce and she had the filet mignon. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. The only complaint we had is our food was served a bit cold. The only parts of our meal that was warm enough were the potatoes. Clearly the meat station and veggie station were waiting on the potatoes to get done. Other than that, the food was very flavorful and welleexecuted.

    Heard about this restaurant from a friend......and am happy I tried it. Was at Snowshoe for several days and ate here twice/ drinks one night. 1) Make reservations! This is the only truly "nice" restaurant on the Mountain....and it does get crowded. I even noticed the management doing everything they could to accommodate very large groups that did not make reservations.... 2) I'm not sure what I was expecting "food wise" but I was truly surprised by the quality and variety on the menu! Very high end. But then, the Brunch was just what we needed in "Comfort Food".... 3) if you can't get reservations, you can get food at the bar....which is fun too. For a new-ish place, it is making a positive mark on the Mountain!

    The food was good. We had reservations and had to wait for our table that was set up in the foyer of the restaurant. Our waitress had a broken arm and was very confused with our group of 12. If they could step up their service and management, it would be a great place overall.

    Our meal was good, but not great. We dined 12/27 and 12/30. This weekend was the beginning of ski season. They were very busy. They still need to work out the kinks. Usually by mid-season, things are much better.

    This restaurant is pricy but well worth it! The food was phenomenal and the service was outstanding. I highly recommend the mango scallop appetizer. The flatiron steak and the spicy clam linguini were delicious and the berry bunt cake and chocolate torte were the icing on the cake. We will definitely be back again...at least once each time we come back to snowshoe.

    We really enjoyed our recent dinner at South Mountain Grille. Our waiter was Mark, a ski volunteer by day and a waiter at night. The service was prompt and friendly. My wife had the spring rolls, the portobello mushroom appetizer and the cottage cheese soup. I had the Szechewan beef wok. Of course we shared everything with the objective of figuring out the ingredients so that we could make them at home. The best and most unuisual was the protobello mushroom dish......yummy. The dressing was a sun-dried tomatoe vinegarette. Everyone need to try to cottage cheese soup - awesome and I'm sure very fattening but work it if you share. We'll be back for sure. Bob
