Very neat spot, spectacular view, good food, but it was cold day and there weren’t any good heaters!
Wear your warm and fuzzies.

The entire experience was so worth the trip to Collingwood. The ride up the gondola was fun, the restaurant was set up for physical distancing with clear Covid guidelines. The menu was limited but the food was well done for taste & presentation. The view was spectacular. The wait staff were pleasant and efficient.

The most spectacular view in Ontario for dining. Service was great. Friendly, informative, checked in with us a few times while we were dining. The menu isn't extensive but each dish is divine. Go with the burger! the value of the meal is incredible when looking at the location, view, quality and quantity of food and very nice service.

Great spot to dine and have a fabulous view of Georgian Bay - best to phone for directions as the website and google offer different addresses.
Food was delicious and service was very attentive. A little cool the day we went but during summer it would be amazing.

Approaching from the top there needs to be signs to show you where to turn and park. Then indecate which direction to walk to the restaurant from the parking garage lot.
A good experience.

What a great location, and great idea! The food was incredible, and the service was top notch. The views from the restaurant were breathtaking. It's completely outdoors, but sheltered, so you have to dress for the weather. Located right next to the gondola so there is some noise from that and the crowds lining up for it, but that didn't bother us at all. I hope they consider staying open for the winter and accommodate with some propane heaters and comfort food / hot beverages for the skiers and snowshoers 😊

Great staff! First time at blue and even though it was a little gloomy, the staff was welcoming and made sure we were comfortable. And the food was delicious! We’re actually going to be requesting for late check out just so we can grab a bite before we hit the road. Thank you Summitview Pavilion! We’ll be back, with friends and family!

Amazing! We made our reservation for 3:30 but had to change it at 30 min before and they were very accepting and had no issues! We showed up and they asked us if we wanted to wait for a better seat near the front with a better view and we did and we don’t regret it! The food is outstanding, a little expensive but that’s what you would expect from this style of restaurant. (Fancy but casual) Excellent host and waiter as well. We visited for a birthday and were delighted to be offered a free dessert of our choice which tasted like heaven! Bottom line would highly recommend on a warm day!
Was a little windy at the top which made it chilly so bring a sweater!

This is an open air tent on a gravel surface with a makeshift kitchen at the top of Blue Mountain. Needless to say it has a small menu. But the view was awesome. The food was so so. The burger had a fried egg in it! But the charcuterie board was good. There was a birthday in our group and our hostess just said, Happy Birthday- no other acknowledgement.
Biggest issue: there was no parking spots available in the lot, so we parked on the road. There was no sign saying we couldn’t, but when we left we got a parking ticket!! We had a reservation and we got a ticket! What choice did we have coming an hour and forty five minutes to get to this restaurant? In the future, I would suggest designated parking for restaurant guests and a clearly marked sign directing us to your establishment.

We enjoyed our lunch, my birthday lunch very much, a bit chilly, bit lovely to sit in the Muskoka chairs, overlooking Collingwood. Special thanks to our lovely server who brought me a piece of delicious cheesecake and sang Happy Birthday to me. Made my day.

An excellent way to spend the evening. Make a reservation though if you want to be seat right away. Service was fantastic and as well as the food. Very pleased with the quality of food for being a “pop-up” setup. Last but not least was the view. Amazing.

This is an outside space with Muskoka chairs and metal tables (high top & low round ones) on a limestone gravel base that is at the start of a ski hill in winter season. Very casual, wonderful view, large tent covering so out of the sun, and right at the top of the gondola lift from Blue Mountain village. Due to the virus 19 tables and seating are well spaced out.

Good for families with children.

We drove and had to take a second try to find it as it is not well marked from the road. Take the first parking lot on the right and it is a short walk to the restaurant. Parking was very busy as there are walking trails, grassy areas where a large family group was picnicking, people getting on and off the lift etc.

Food and wine were to our liking, waiter was attentive but not invasive, lots of people waiting to be seated so reservations on a nice weather day highly advised.

Great views and excellent staff ( Dana was our server) .... we appreciated the option of seating style and we chose the muskoka chairs... food was nice ... chicken and salmon both moist and freshly prepared. Gondola ride home was awesome... and a great way to end the evening. I respect the effort to present a unique and fun place to dine and relish our beautiful Georgian Bay views.
