After we were seated our experience was fantastic. But there was a big issue at the beginning. We had made reservations days before for our daughters 21st birthday. When we arrived there was no table for us. They sat us at a very small table in the bar in hopes we would be satisfied. Upon our disapproval, we were moved to a nice table.
Our hopes were that we would have had a nice table all set up upon our arrival as if you were expecting us and our special occasion. That was a disappointment.
The remainder of the brunch was phenomenal.

After traveling the world, it's a pleasure to come home and find a world-class experience hidden in the hills of these beautiful Utah mountains. The Sunday Brunch will be a favorite place to celebrate life's quiet moments. Thanks!

Buffet wasn’t anything super special (Prime rib was the best) Not worth the price. Still glad we came tho. We are locals so doubt we’d come again unless we’re taking guests that really like drinking! Nice experience. Just over priced.

High West Refectory is a hidden gem out side the overpriced Main Street of Park City. I have been in the summer and winter. Beautiful scenery with gorgeous deer, owl, horses etc. Excellent live music. And of course the liquor that High West Distillery is known for.

This location is absolutely stunning. It is a scenic drive up to the base of BlueSky ranch, where Mr. Bill picks you up in a shuttle bus to take you to the distillery/restaurant while providing some great history on the company and property. The Sunday buffet included a great variety. Our personal favorites were the gumbo, biscuits (butter, jelly, or gravy), waffles, and chocolate chip cookies. We were also pleasantly surprised by great live music (Matthew and the hope). Cocktails were good, but not sure I would recommend the Bloody Mary. Only let down was that the actual distillery is still under renovation and not a part of tour.

Went for the tour and tasting. This part was phenomenal!!! The location is gorgeous, and the service excellent! We stayed for the brunch to celbrate our anniversary. The food was good, but there wasnt much to choose from. Pretty disappointed by this. Other than some brisket, there was really only a pan of eggs, a pan of sausage and bacon, bisquits and gravy, and then some wafflea and toppings. I expected much more for a Sunday brunch at such a nice place!! If it had been 20 a head, I might say it was worth it, just because we were really there for the tour and tasting and special event. But it definately is not worth 40 per person. maybe if it came with unlimited mimosas and a shuttle to park city. we will return as the limited items we tried were good, but we will do it when it has a menu, not for the brunch.

The space is great, the views outstanding, the staff excellent, however the food was average. More effort should be made to turning over items that have been sitting for too long. Additionally, it would be great to add an omelet station and a bit more variety.

On the fence...I really wanted to love this place but honestly it fell a little flat for me. Heard so many great things and have been trying to come for about a year so when I finally made it I had super high expectations. We started with brunch and the little food that they offered was overall just ok for me. But most disappointing was the lack of selection. For $40 per person I would expect a nicer spread then what they had. There just was not a whole lot of food choices. And I always tip 20-25% but the tip was automatically added to our bill and we were only a party of 3. I’m accustomed to that only happening with a party of 6 or more. The waiter didn’t even tell us they did that so we almost added an additional tip. Afterwards we did the whisky tour and the distillery room was closed so we only got to experience the tasting room. Another $21 per person and an incomplete tour left a bad taste in our mouth. While the experience was not horrible, $230 for brunch for 3 people was a hefty price given the lackluster food selection and missing segment of the distillery tour. The only consolation is that the staff were super nice and the grounds truly are beautiful. Not sure I'll ever go back and would feel bad recommending it to anyone without telling them not to expect a huge bang for their buck. It's still fairly new and I love supporting local businesses so hopefully they will make some improvements because I sure would love for them to succeed.

After dining on Main Street in Park City for an entire week this was a great value by comparison. The family style meal with multiple courses was generous in portions and everything was well seasoned. Only downside is that there isn't any room to deviate from the menu with the exception of a vegetarian option.

Up in the hills, over the mountains from Salt Lake City. Part of blue sky “ranch”. Sit in the dining room looking over the hills, or on the porch.
Great selections of food and of course all the types of high west! The distillery is next door, if you reserve tours ahead of time.

They were serving a big Sunday brunch, when we arrived and we say signs for Thursday night supper club. Sounds like a great evening.

If you like high west, this is a definite destination!!

I've been coming to the refectory since it's opening in September a few years ago and although the outside scenery continues to be beautiful the inside continues to decline in value. The quality and selection of the Sunday brunch has noticeably declined over the past couple years they've had it and the drink prices continue to go up. I guess that's one way to make back some of the $160M+ investment that Constellation made, but it's doing a good job of pushing me away to something else.

High West Refectory is amazing. The ambiance is incredible, views are outstanding and service is always great. We've had the pleasure of Sterling hosting us several times - hes is a rockstar. My only issue with the food - and why I didn't give a 5 star rating for it has nothing to with quality or flavor. The flavor and options are great. However - the food is uncovered, so its is not "hot" when you get to the table with it. I would recommend HW consider using covers on the buffet so the food maintains a high temperature. We have been several times and will go back, its a great value for the price and one of our favorite local spots. Just would like to see the serving of food tweaked a bit.

Ambiance and service was amazing. This was our 3rd time dining. We were surprised at some of the changes (i.e. no 3:00 tour, no longer able to serve a flat of shots) a heads up thru email of liquor enforcements would have been appreciated.

I attended sunday brunch here to celebrate birthdays. It was one of the best brunches I have been to in years. The selection was simple, flavorful and fresh. There were new things to try and classic brunch items.
I would recommend this for any adult wanting to enjoy good food in a classy atmosphere.

This is my third trip to High West for brunch, but it was a 2p reservation (only time available with 3 weeks notice). My two other previous reservations were at 11a and was a very great experience. I do not recommend the brunch at an afternoon time slot. Service was extremely slow and non-attentive; even when the server passed by our table at least six times. Brunch is over at 3p. The staff seemed to be ready for the service to be over perhaps is why our small party was being avoided.

Pricey for the level of attention to detail. Food was better than average and pretty fresh. At $40 per person ($20 for kids)...and $18 cocktails, I expect a bit more of a polish on service and the overall experience.

We ordered a couple bloody marys (for $36). The horseradish cream they're adding to them (inspired by the wasabi bloody mary at the St. Regis) curdles in the cocktail, making the second half of the drink disgusting.

When we politely mentioned it to our server, instead of offering us a different cocktail, he defended the recipe with a bit of attitude. Left a bad taste in our mouths literally, and figuratively.

All that said, the grounds are beautiful, and we love High West's story; the horse rescue efforts, and the libations, however we probably won't be back to Blue Sky Ranch any time soon.
