Food is bad to mediocre at best! I would suggest the cafeteria up on the mountain (seriously!)

Awesome experience dining at over 8000 ft. We both ordered the rib eye which was prepared exactly right--very juicy and good lean piece for a rib eye. Service could have been better. Restaurant was not crowded yet 3 tables of 2 were placed right on top of each other. Took 15 minutes to get a beer brought to the table and we had to go to the hostess to get some bread brought to us. While you understand it is cold up there at this time of year, they need to heat the area better as it got very cold during dinner.

Of course it's the journey to the top that makes the meal at Peaks a special occasion but there are plenty of other options on the valley floor below.

The service was great but the menu wasn't as varied as other valley options. The wine list was mediocre and the view from the restaurant want as spectacular as you might hope.

Plus, after dinner there's the long wait to get on a team to go down.

My suggestion... Take the tram to the top in the daytime or just in time to see the sunset. Enjoy the view and the cooler air and then get back down as fast as you can to a restaurant with some better options.

Also, if you can swing it, take Uber past the visitor center to the top where the teams actually pickup.

Enjoy!

It didn’t matter that we had reservations through Open Table - they never acknowledged them and did not seat us near a great view as requested. And we asked about it so we were moved a bit closer but then we got a note from Open table stating we had not shown up! We had!

Food was alright and waitress was very pleasant
