    Always a fun place to spend thanksgiving, but a bit lacking on value at that price…

    We did the Thanksgiving Buffet. The food was pretty good, our waitress was not. For 110/ person I would not do it again. It was definitely nothing special except for the crab, my husband said it was good. I would go again, regular occasion, if it is not as pricey.

    We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at the Lodge and could not have been more pleased. The food was wonderful and the staff was friendly. Our waiter Sergio was the best! I will definitely book dinner here again.

    We probably won't be back unless we have a coupon or the cost is drastically reduced. First, more information should be provided on the confirmation email regarding time to arrive to the gondola in relation to the dinner time reservation. Second, the server forgot to bring salads, soup, and bread. Third, the food was okay. For the price, it should have been a very cool experience, but instead it was a hilarious experience 🤣 that I would rather not pay for again.

    Had an awesome dinner here a few years ago so we went again. Won’t be going back... quality and overall experience just not the same. Food was just mediocre and for the price you expect more. Beautiful location though on top of the mountain!

    We had a 5:45 reservation and were sat at the far back of the room. Having read on Open Table that “the probability of being seated by a window is greatly increased if you book at 5:45,” we were disappointed to be sat at the back with a view of the gondola instead if the majestic valley. (While many of the prime tables sat empty until after dark). The manager’s response was that people had specifically requested the “view” tables or that they were held for people doing wedding tastings. So, note to all: put in a request for a table in the front even if you make a 5:30 or 5:45 reservation.

    The Lodge at Sunspot has so much potential and what a lovely concept for a different type of venue. The food is decent albeit unremarkable. I think with a little effort it could be much better. Our waiter was attentive and tried hard but there’s a mismatch between the price point (high) and the style of service. The atmosphere is basically that of any family-style restaurant (no tablecloths - old placemats like those you might use for a picnic table), really noisy and with cafeteria style lighting (bright). The folks running the gondola and coat room service were really friendly and helpful. The host told us to wait for our reservation in the bar where the drinks we ordered were not very good and bar service apathetic (total for 2 drinks with tip was $33). I am glad we tried it but the value was not there.

    The food was of low quality for such a high price. The chicken tasted nothing of maple bourbon as stated on menu. It was if they poured a bottle of seasoned salt on it. It was horrible and inedible. The steak was tough.

    The setting was fun and beautiful on top of the mountain. Nighttime gondola ride was awesome. Food was very good and enjoyable. The service was EXCELLENT. Jessica was one of the best waitresses we have ever had! Overall a little expensive but the best meal we had on our 5 day trip to Winter Park. Thank you!

    First, I want to say the service and ambiance at Sunspot were amazing. We had a large party of 13 and they were able to sit us all together. Our server (can't recall his name) was efficient and friendly. Our problem was with the menu selection and food quality, especially for the prices we paid. Everyone who ordered the chicken dish was unhappy with it-said the bourbon sauce didn't go well with the chicken. One person ordered the prime rib and could barely cut it with a steak knife. It looked more like pot roast. My trout was really good, however. My husband ordered the bison ribeye and it was amazing. The vegetable sides were very undercooked. We had to use a steak knife to cut the carrots. The salad was an unusual, rather bland assortment of lettuces and hard to identify items. The only other first course option was lobster bisque. I personally liked it, but most people would prefer a more mainstream soup, like vegetable or chicken based. Sunspot's corn chowder is one of my favorite items- wish they offered it at dinner, too. This was my first time to eat at Sunspot for dinner. We usually do lunch there and have always been happy with our food. We will definitely return to Sunspot for lunch, but unfortunately, not for dinner, especially at the prices we paid.

    I dont mind paying for fine dinning...but $400 for 2 adults, 2 children and the service was lack luster at best. If you are going to charge a premium for service then it should be 5 star

    Christmas buffet, prime rib looked like it was bleeding. Turkey was as dry as my face after an entire day of skiing without a mask. Bread could have been used in the Stanley cup final. Price was out of this world for extremely sub par food. Never again. Best part was the blankets they gave us for the gondola ride up and down.

    Beautiful scenery and view. I just thought the food would be a little more exquisite for spending 193.00 dollars; turkey and prime rib was the meat selection. We were a party of 2 and gratuity was 25.00 for Christmas as well. Interesting experience.

    $700 bill. 7 people. 3 dinners came out perfectly. Four dinners came out under cooked cold raw. I ended up taking my prime rib to the kitchen myself as my waiter was not to be found after entree delivery. The prime cut was about half the weight they advertised in the menu. They were about half full so not overloaded. I was so excited to go too. ☹️

    I really hate that my whole experience was Brought to a negative review due to lack of training with my server. I am frustrated at the fact that there were many issues during my dining experience from the server not knowing how to present a bottle of wine my server not refilling any drinks soda or cocktails without flagging him down. my server not understanding the menu. The restaurant being sold out of prime rib at 6:30 in the evening on a Friday night. The back-and-forth with my server from the kitchen trying to get orders correct for my children. We brought family from out of town, Christmas dinner on the mountain was imagined to be enjoyable and not challenging. I was also frustrated that I manager never even came over to greet the table considering the major issues that were going on. With the price on the plates at this establishment I wouldn't recommend risking your money there
