Great food with unbeatable views! Sunday brunch for about $50/person, includes a day pass for the gondola which alone is about $40/person. Great deal!

Horrible food, horrific service. Over priced. Will not go back and in fact will recommend people not to go for dinner. We went down the mountain and ate at a different restaurant after the GC dinner. Tried to share disappointment, and hostess just said, ‘Sorry’. Expensive lesson dropping almost $1000 for the dinner...Do not waste your time or money at this venue...HORRENDOUS

It was our 8 Year Wedding Anniversary. We were greeted with Champagne which was a lovely surprise. We had our toddler with us and the staff was super friendly toward him. Food was phenomenal and enjoyed against the perfect backdrop of the sunset over the mountains.

Stunning views from all tables. Beautifully presented dishes. Spectacular wine list. Sunset was at 8pm and our RSV was for 8pm... arrived 30m early to enjoy the views and take photos but the true fiery sky takes place approx 15mins after the sun went down... highly recommended

This was one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had, and we’ve had quite a few of them, including a meal in Nice, France. The ride up the gondola and then bus was fun, and beautiful setting, with a Vail ski instructor as driver - very informative. Our server, as well as other staff, were extremely helpful. We had 3 teenagers with us, and our server took the time to explain every item on the Prix Fixe menu. We all had fun trying the different options for each course, and every course was delicious! It was not cheap, but would highly recommend this unique restaurant.

This is the perfect spot for a special event dinner - we celebrated our anniversary there. The view of the mountains is spectacular - you're surrounded by wilderness when you eat here. The food was great - we're foodies, and it went beyond expectations. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

An outstanding location for a great brunch or dinner. Everything about the experience was perfect. Five stars is simply not enough to describe a wonderful setting, and dining, opportunity.
Rick greeted us at the door with genuine warmth and graciousness. He seated us at the window overlooking the mountains and forest. Our waiter, Henry, was professional, patient and helpful in every way. The brunch menu and preparation could not have been better.
Highly recommended. The afternoon was perfect! We didn't want to leave.

Always an incredible exeperience. The drink menu designed by Brandon is different, comfortable and incredible delicious. Food choices on the prix fix menu were wonderful. Our waiter, Henri was attentive, knowledgeable and fun have as a server. Will definitely be coming back for a dinner later this summer. This is a must do "splurge" when in Vail. I would recommend ascending the mountain about 45 minutes BEFORE your reservation to have a few drinks on the deck overlooking Game Creek Bowl.

The amazing views from the Game Creek restaurant are only matched by the exquisite setting and superb food. We were attending the Fathers Day brunch, and every morsel was excellent. From the fresh fruit, lox spread, carved prime rib, omelet station, and all the requisite sides to go with them - this brunch was one of the best we ever had. Our only regret is that we could not sample all of the dishes. Will have to come back and do it again!

This is more than dinning, it’s an experience, from the blanketed gondola ride to the snow cat ride to the front door to the cozy setting and the fine dinning, as my 6 year old said as he entered into the restaurant and sat in front of the fireplace with his feet on the table, “this is the life”!

The gondola and snowcat ride to and from the restaurant put it over the top!!!
