Ski towns are notorious for having less than average service, and this place was no exception. The ambience is great, the food is average, and the service is poor. It’s not that hard to make the customer feel like you’re actually making an effort. The customer can tell when the server is trying to make the best of a situation, versus the server simply not caring.

We had a great experience at Idlewild. Food was amazing and reasonably priced. Lots of gluten free options and a knowledgeable staff when it comes to gluten free. Truffle fries and crispy brussels were a big hit. Wings and BBQ were also extremely good. Spirits are well done and we bought a bottle for a friend. Our server was not great but the rest of the staff was and stepped up to help. Otherwise it would have been five stars across the board. If in Winter Park hit this spot (but make a reservation ahead of time). Especially hit it if you need to eat gluten free.

Great atmosphere and great food. We are regulars in Winter Park and will continue to dine here. Wait staff and host were superb.
Open table reservations highly recommended on the weekend as limited dining indoors.

Truffle fries were over salted and pungent. Brussels were too sweet. The rest of the food was just mediocre. Service was good.

The drinks were fantastic, but the food was just mediocre. I had the shrimp scampi (shrimp were very small, looked to be canned?) which was a bit flavorless. My daughter had Fettucine alfredo and it was so garlicky that it was crunchy with garlic! That was the only flavor, honestly. My husband ordered the Bulgagie Spare Ribs and while the flavor was really good, they were very tough and he had to tear them apart to eat them. The service was wonderful though - we loved our server. And the rum cake was yummy!

We had been to Idlewild before and came back with friends that had not been before. We very much enjoyed our second visit and our friends were pleasantly surprised. Although the menu is somewhat limited, prices are reasonable and the wait staff and kitchen were accommodating to special requests. We will be back for sure.

Excellent!! I’m glad we made a reservation...it was busy.
The service was great! Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. The food was superb - in quality and taste. Best Brussels sprouts ever!!
They make their own gin, vodka, whiskey and wine. Even their own tonic. We bought several bottles.
Can’t wait to return! I would drive from Denver just to eat (and drink) here!!
Extra tip: stay at Wild Horse Inn - awesome bed & breakfast!

Food was incredible (truffle fries and pork chop, especially) and our server was top notch. Our group REALLY enjoyed our experience. Only word of “warning” is that this was a longer, more European-paced meal (or at least it was with a group of 7 on a Saturday night). I personally love this, but you may want to allow more time if you have somewhere to be after dinner. Thanks, Idlewild crew!
