This is NOT a review of the tour - its *just* for Sunday brunch. When I made the reservation and even spoke to someone on the phone afterwards to confirm, I requested outdoor seating. We were not able to be sat outside even when there were several empty 4 tops - we were a party of 2 but we had made the reservations as requested and we wanted to get away from the children and the noise (see below).
I was disheartened to learn that Sunday brunch was buffet style. While the quality of the food was pretty good - even though limited for someone with food allergies like myself - I could not believe the price, how loud the live "music" was (guy with guitar blaring covers - note: we are young musicians ourselves - we were surprised at how loud the PA was - we couldn't even have a full conversation!) and how many children were running around , yelling, and putting their hands in the food. Yikes.
The brunch drinks , on the other hand, were fantastic. Possibly the only thing that got me through.
We are, however, looking forward to coming back for another tour and tasting and possibly a more traditional style meal.
Great Sunday brunch! Good selection of food and drink!
Staff is always great especially Sterling and manager Steve!
The view and outdoor experience are absolutely wonderful. The Sunday brunch was a cut above. I would strongly recommend the brunch. The dinner on Thursday night was very lackluster. The ambience is the only thing that saved it. The staff are very friendly and service was excellent. The gift shop is also fun.
Came for the tour and the Sunday brunch. The food was amazing, and the live music was a nice addition I didn’t expect. There is a shuttle bus you have to take up to the restaurant so get there a few minutes early for your reservation.
Excellent food! Loved the location and experience as a whole. It’s on the expensive side, but totally worth it.
High West Distillery is set up on a mountainside with an incredible view. We did Sunday Brunch and it was outstanding. They had everything from brisket, to waffles to homemade cinnamon rolls. You will definitely not leave hungry with all of the yummy choices. The experience itself is more on the spendy side with brunch for two and two cocktails being over $100. Be prepared. If you get a chance, call ahead and get booked for the free tour, it’s worth it!
If you like trying different whiskeys and good food, great atmosphere.... it is a cool place and pretty grounds
We love taking out-of-town visitors to High West for the Sunday Brunch. The architecture and setting is simply spectacular, and the food items are always delicious. Worth the drive out for sure. Only notes - despite what their phone message says, you DO need a reservation (book it on Open Table), and arrive ~15 min early to leave time for the free shuttle up to the building from the lower parking lot. We've gone several times and it's a great experience every time.
High West Distillery does not disappoint! Fantastic Sunday Brunch! Well worth the expense!
this was fantastic.
you need reservations to eat here, but it's impeccably done and we were blown away by the overall quality, as well as the beauty of the site as well.
this is a destination-type of place. it's out of the way, but more than worth your time getting there.
Great place. Highly recommend.
Went for Sunday Brunch, compared to others that we have been to in snowbird and deer valley this one didn’t offer variety for the price. We enjoyed the tour of the distillery and tasting before brunch though and would recommend!
Just fantastic experience
We made a reservation for the Sunday brunch. Everything was outstanding. Wish we could have eaten more! The view was beautiful and there was live music. We took a tour of the distillery after and then had a tasting upstairs for a $14 fee. Loved the bus driver, Mr. Bill. Ask him how he got the nickname. Great day!
We had a wonderful time! Loved sitting outside listening to the live music!
Phenomenal food, drink, service, venue, and view, in line with what we’ve come to love about everything High West. Know that the buffet wraps around 3pm and that you’ll need to take a shuttle to and from the ranch gate to the distillery, so arrive a little early.
Food was good but lacking a little compared to what they were putting out when they first started Sunday brunch
They keep raising the bar at the Refractory. Always a great setting and great distillery tours, but the new food offerings are really great. the brunch menu and presentations are fantastic.
We love High West and going out to Wanship. We plan on bringing out of town guests by this summer. Favorite spot. Food is always excellent, service is always top notch and friendly.
We loved the beautiful setting as we sat outdoors in perfect temperature and listened to the band play. Our servers were very good, friendly and prompt.
Work Springville Utah ever so often and always spend new get before Orr after in park city. Will include HW in our next visit
We liked the food, atmosphere, hosts and everything else.
We live across the highway......and had never been there. It was so awesome. Food, ambiance,
scenery etc. Highly recommend the Sunday brunch.
Incredible. Everything. The food (brunch). The service. The experience. The view. Everything was super fantastic. And if you like whiskey, its even better!!!
One of the top five places I’ve ever had brunch. Truly an awesome place. The setting for this place cannot be beat. Food was great. The scenery was fantastic. We will be back for sure.
Awesome food, great food, the Rye sampler was fantastic!!
Sunday brunch was delicious with lots of options for everyone in our group. The staff was friendly and professional - a fun dining experience.
Great Brunch well presented
Beautiful location and views. Food was great. Service was great. Looking forward to next trip. Great destination spot.
GREAT !! We loved the drive out, a treat overall
Very pleasant experience. Only negative is the inability to reach anyone by phone. If Open Table not working (which it was not for this restaurant for some days) it is almost impossible to get info - messages left do not get a return call and no one ever answers - ir is messages only.
Great place. How about just a little personal customer service via phone?
We enjoyed the Easter Brunch Buffet here it was wonderful. The reason for the 4 stars and not 5 was that they do not have tables for 4 in the main area. They sat us by ourselves in a big lonely room and then took pity on us and moved us to the main room where we sat at a tiny table where we squeezed in. Which we didn't really mind but again 5 stars to me means perfection. The second reason for the 4 stars is the lack of desserts, as in zero desserts. The food was excellent with several items to choose from, they had live music, beautiful views. But after having given up dessert for Lent (40 days) I was looking forward to breaking the fast at Easter brunch with a dessert buffet and to my surprise there was nada!
Would recommend though, we spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon there and we will be back for sure.
Outstanding as usual. Great atmosphere, food, service.
Made our way out here from SLC using Uber. Its a pretty long ride, but the distllery tour, scenery and food were all worth it. We were there on a Sunday afternoon for brunch buffet. It was pricier than we were expecting at $35 each, but the food and service were both excellent.
This place is a hidden gem on a large ranch. It is beautiful and massive glass windows with a beautiful view while you are eating. Gift shop had a lot of great finds.
Wonderful buffet brunch in a beautiful setting. Cowboy coffee outstanding!!
West Refectory is worth the effort it takes to get up to it! The view is beautiful, food and drinks are great! I highly recommend the old fashion, its made with their whiskey and is delicious.
If you get there when the rosemary bread is baked, you're a lucky person!
Amazing experience. Great food and the distillery tour was fantastic.
loved the tour of the distillery, the tasting in the bar, and the brunch! the french toast was amazing as was all of the buffet items! the local cheese & salumi board with spiced chutney was d'lish!
