Excellent place for brunch and whiskey! High West Silver is the absolute best! Beautiful grounds and wonderful staff. Our server Sterling took great of us. The musicians were excellent and really added to the ambiance. The food was also excellent! We will definitely be back!

Food was awesome, service was just okay.

Our server didn’t greet us for at least 10 minutes upon being seated. We wanted to order drinks, so we sat there watching multiple servers glance at our table, then watched them ask each other whose table it was. There was a woman who seemed to be the manager looking around the restaurant, I tried to make eye contact with her so she’d see that we hadn’t been greeted yet—it never worked.

It was our anniversary, we were seated at a table where both of us had to ensure the person behind us wasn’t getting up to go to the buffet at the same time—tables were SO close together. I could barely squeeze out of my corner seat without booty-bumping the lady seated in the neighboring table (and I’m not abnormally large).

This is our second visit, it definitely was not as impressive as the first.

This place was fantastic. We came here for our daughter's 21st birthday. We weren't expecting a buffet for the brunch, but that's okay. It was the most fantastic brunch buffet I've ever had!! We're definitely coming back and I can't wait. The ride up on the bus was great too. Mr. Bill was full of information and it made the short ride up very enjoyable.

What a beautiful place they’ve created!
We went for the Sunday brunch and loved our experience from beginning to end. The food was delicious and fresh.
Bill, the shuttle Driver, made the short ride from the parking lot up fun and informational.
The live band was amazing.
The grounds were beautiful, we wish we had planned more time to walk around.
We’ll be back!

This was our fourth visit to HW Refectory but our first for Thursday night family style dinner.
Didn't know there would be live music and the duo on hand was terrific. Staff is convivial and
aim to please. Food was served at a nice pace. Not knowing what to expect, we enjoyed the
food selection for the evening and felt well fed by the completion. We might have liked a bit
more of that awesome pineapple upside-down cake but perhaps they did us a favor in keeping
the portion "controlled". Lots of interesting beverage options, and of course, whiskey pairings!

We went for Brunch on Labor Day weekend. The reservation had been made well in advance. However, we had to wait for our table. The size of the service area had tripled since our last visit. The place was mobbed and noisy. The service was slow. We had the impression that the refrectory had tried to expand but did not support the increased number of clients adequately. The food was good but very expensive at 40 dollars a person. The increase in the price was not associated with an increase in the quality of the food or the experience. We will not be going back.

Beautiful location. I would come back solely for the amazing ambiance and beautiful views. Our server was very good and the live music was nice. I am not a huge fan of buffets, and I wish it was a regular menu. But, for a buffet, I thought most of the food was quite good, especially the eggs, bison, and biscuits with gravy. Some other options, were not as fresh or appetizing. Overall, would definitely come back and would love to visit for dinner.

Beautiful setting for an excellent dinner on the patio. Our waiter, Bobby was very attentive and the food was delicious. We had a family style dinner of Steelhead trout, beef tips with bourbon mushroom glaze, asparagus, risotto with vegetables and farro. The dessert was fabulous; fresh fruit compote with a maple reduction and bourbon flavored whipped cream. We even got to watch the full moon come up over the mountains!

We went for brunch on Sunday. This was our second time we have gone for brunch and it was excellent. The ham was juicy and tender. The biscuits and gravy were also so good! As always the High West cocktails were outstanding.

The environment was nice. The food was good, but expensive for a buffet. I loved the live music. I would have liked to have had more to do after dining, or even just more places to sit and relax and take in the views. It felt like such a production to get up there, so after we ate, we wandered around for a bit but got bored, so we left. But all in all, it was a nice experience, but maybe a one-time experience.

The facility is stunning. We went on a beautiful Sunday morning and loved soaking in the sun up at the ranch. It is incredible what they have built. We were, however, disappointed in the brunch. First, you have to park at the bottom and wait for a shuttle bus to take you up to the facility. It's time consuming and creates a rush of people who all show up to check in at the restaurant at the same time. We had to wait about 25 minutes for a shuttle after we finished. The brunch is not over the top, pretty basic breakfast overall, the desserts were great. For $40, it was a bit expensive for such an underwhelming spread. Definitely worth it as a one-time thing to see the facility and make an experience out of it, but as a local, no need to keep going back.

You really cannot beat the setting. What a beautiful day. Food over all was good, but they really need to look at a few things. The dark chocolate mouse was just plain nasty. Waaaayyy too much salt. Brownie was dry and tasteless. Desserts were a disappointment. But the red pozole with chips and avocado cream was delicious. Green Goddess dressing on the salad was yummy. Drinks were great. The tasting flight of whisky was great. Cheese plate was just odd. Need better selection. Leg of lamb was delicious. So food inconsistent. Biggest problem is the service. The ONLY person that was remotely pleasant was the young lady at the door.
Every server in the dining area was not happy to be there, and it showed. It is really impossible to get pleasant servers in Utah? Really?

Great cocktails. Family style dining with delicious but a bit cold food. Lovely setting. Main issue we have was communication. Left 2 emails and 2 voicemail to find out basic info. No reply. There are no tours with dinner. No place for a cocktail prior to dinner despite what we were told.

We love coming here for Sunday brunch. My only complaint/recommendation is that they make you park in a lower parking lot and shuttle you up. There is only one shuttle and they driver, while very nice, waits a reallly long time. Presumably this is to get as many folks as possible but it would be so much faster to take a few more trips. We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and arrived at the actual restaurant 20 minutes after our reservation, so get there early. Otherwise it was delightful as always.
