The app shouldn’t allow people to make reservations for lunch....there are not lunch reservations or a hostess. It is complete wild random free-for-all dining with all the other skiers on the mountain. Get in before 12pm or you won’t have a chance. Reservations are only for dinner, don’t let the app trick you like it did me.

Great location but having doors would be a great addition to keep the bar noise out. And some light background music.
Presentation of food was good but selection could have been better. On a cold day choice of soups would have been nice. Even something simple like chicken and biscuits would have been great. Disappointed that we were there at 530 and steaks were sold out from the previous day...

This was our 2nd (dining) trip to Purgys , we have had lunch here on various occasions as well . We started off with wings delicately breaded with corn meal , cooked perfectly , sitting over a bed of tasty risotto. For its slopeside convenience & consistently good food we would recommend Purgys .

This is a good option if staying at the purgatory resort. We ate there three of the four nights we were there. Good food for the price.

We had dinner reservations at 7:00 in the evening. There are about 12 items on the menu because it is tailored to be fine dining. This was the second night we ate there and it was the second night they were out of 4-5 items and all but two deserts. They were not prepared for the crowds, not busing tables, and out of food. Amazing for a high end resort. I felt sorry for the waiter who was very nice.

Highly disappointed with Purgy's! Made New Year's Eve reservations months in advance. Even went in day before & picked out which table we wanted (staff wrote it down). Walked in on New Year's Eve little after 8 and low and behold, was told THEY WERE NOT HONORING RESERVATIONS AT ALL since they were too busy. Ridiculous excuse and exact reason we had made reservations!!! THANKS FOR SPOILING OUR NEW YEAR'S EVE PLANS AT PURGATORY! Would NEVER recommend this place to anyone!!!

This was our Christmas dinner second year in a row.
Delicious food, lobster mac and cheese and salmon were both excellent, and bread pudding to die for. Very friendly prompt service, we really had a lovely time. Great after-skiing option.

We have had lunch & appetizers post skiing at this slopeside restaurant before & it’s always been pretty good but we were pleasantly surprised with our first dinner at Purgys . We started off with a chicken corn chowder , it was hearty & had good flavors . For our mains we had a cornmeal dusted trout & the salmon dish . The trout was the star of the night . I’m not a big fan of trout but I ended up eating 1/4 of my wife’s trout dish , it was lightly dusted with just the right amount of cornmeal & was cooked (skin on) perfectly . The salmon was good , it was wild caught & well cooked. Conveniently located on the mountain & good food . Will definitely eat here again .

Purgy's allowed me to make a reservation on Open Table, even though the restaurant is not currently operating. Why?

Was running late for a 5:15 reservation made on Open Table. Called to notify the restaurant and spoke to a very nice woman who informed me they were not open and had not been open since the June 1st forest fire. She further stated they probably would not open this summer at all. Be sure to call them first for status.

They’re allowing reservations to be made, even though they’re CLOSED!! Quite frustrating for your family of NINE to walk up to a restaurant in which they’ve made a
reservation, only to see a sign on the door that they aren’t open. If I don’t show up to a reservation, Open Table dings me. Well what do they do to a restaurant that shows “hurry, only six spots left.” When the doors are locked up? Insanely ridiculous.

Food was okay, but service left much to be desired. Very slow, brought appetizers at the same time as main meal, burger was over cooked, bun stale. Wrong wine. Charge for a sad, stale tiny plate of bread. They realized the issues and took s few dollars off the bill but I don’t think we’d rush back anytime soon.

Terrible service. waited 15-20 minutes at table for any service and only got water by asking the water person. Very inhospitable given high altitude ski resort where hydration is key to avoiding altitude sickness, especially after day of skiing. Waited another 5 min then had to ask hostess if we could get a server. Server lacked hospitality or friendliness and merely processed our order, which took long (30+min wait) for simple soup/salad and 2 kid meals. Large bottle of water spilled when food was delivered and food runner walked away without helping to wipe it up. Only decent staff was hostess. Food was mediocre at best. Overpriced for lousy service and so-so food. And dining room only half seated with several tables already eating their food.

Our family had a dinner night out at Purgy's as part of a ski trip to Purgatory ski resort. It was our first time there to dine. Starting with the BAD food: the fish tacos had almost zero fish and were LOADED with dry red cabbage and sour pickled onions on cold dried out flour tortillas. A chicken Caesar salad was very unoriginal with too much dressing tasting straight out of a bottle. One person in our group ordered the dinner special, which was a short rib on gnocci with arugula. That was pricey but looked more like decent restaurant fare. The Thai chicken wings were good. The children in the group ordered the fish and chips, and a kids cheeseburger. All OK. The place had canned music playing, and a rustic atmosphere. It could have been so much nicer if all of the food tasted better. Service was OK but our drinks were only refilled when we tracked down the server.

Food was nasty even by bar food standards. Service was marginal at best. It is one of the only shows in town for dining later at night and is in a beautiful location, but not a good value at all for what you pay. We got there an hour before closing and they couldn't wait to get us out.

The restaurant had computer glitches so the reservations my family made were not known by the staff. This did not stop them from accommodating about 50 family members. The staff humped it and made sure we had everything we needed. Kelli and Tina gave us exceptional service.

Pleasantly surprised with the menu for a place at the ski area. Between the 6 of us we tried a lot of the menu and all the dishes were very good.

Not very impressed with the surroundings, even with just a small crowd it was pretty loud. Definitely not a special occasion kind of place, but the food carried the night.

I was shocked this was more like bar/pub food. It was a rather slow dining experience for a not crazy busy crowd. Polite people, but somehow didn't see our open table reservations we made. They were fast to find us a spot though. If u r dressed warm for winter, don't sit too close to fireplace, u will be sweating in no time! Clean and quite the view!

We ate here one night with our kids. I'm not sure why we needed a reservation- despite it being Spring Break the place was empty except for a couple of other families. None of the meals were anything more than mediocre. Next time we would make the effort to go off-property or eat-in.

We dine at Purgy's every year during President's Day weekend. This year, we were surprised when we arrived and were informed that there was a special menu. Initially, we were unhappy and thought the price was more than we expected to pay. However, at the end of our dinindg experience, we were extremely satisfied. The service was fantastic, the food amazing and the environment was very romantic. Furthermore, we loved the live band! It made our experience all the more enjoyable.
