Our plan was to spend a cozy evening in a restaurant in the mountains. The dinner turned out to be a total disaster. The mains came out cold and after a second round in the kitchen the result was not any better. We received a correct discount to compensate for the "disaster", it could however not save the evening. The waiter did its best to apologize, we missed however a manager to come forward and explain the situation.
We booked dinner here so my parents could experience being on top of the mountain. Since they aren't skiers we like to chose a different mountainside restaurant each year. It doesn't have to be something really upscale but we eat out often enough that we aren't interested in just bar food or burgers. The menu was intriguing so we thought it would be a good, relaxed option. The view is gorgeous and after 3:30 you can ride the gondola for free which is a big plus. However, out of six meals, only one of us said they would order the food again (they ordered the turkey pot pie). We had buffalo/elk meatloaf and the brisket cheese steak among the rest of us. The brisket was stringy, the cheese sauce that came with it rivaled fast food nacho sauce, the mashed potatoes were undercooked with large chunks of nearly raw potato and the meatloaf, while not dry, was rather bland. The lunch menu looked fairly standard and I suspect that if you are looking for a very basic lunch and happen to be on the mountain it would be fine.
Great way to get away from the hustle of Eagles Nest. I have eaten there many times and have always had great service and delicious food. I am gluten free so I love that they have a separate menu for me. Definitely make a reservation because it can be crowded esp on weekends and holidays.
I booked a reservation through opentable which required a credit card to confirm, then found out 15 mins beforehand that the restaurant wasn’t even open. Totally ruined our night with two kids because everything else in Vail was completely booked up. Opentable totally dropped the ball on this one. Then I still got an email saying I was a “no-show.” Extremely disappointed.
Good value for the kids meal. Entries were average. The service was slow.
Mediocre food at a half way decent price with the ambiance of a barn!
Excellent food and drinks. The salmon was nicely done.
Good place for a snack and drink
Syd and Jim are always awesome. We are weekend regulars and always love their fun, attentive service.
Great service and great food. Perfect stop
