    My wife told our waiter that her meal, duck pot pie was one of the top 5 meals she has had in her life. I’ll always reserve a table here whenever I am in Sun Valley.

    Incredibly charming place with interesting history and fabulous food. The Butternut bisque with fennel pollen and beet powder was unbelievably delicious and the scallop special done to perfection. And the view can't be beat. Our server, Terry, made our birthday dinner especially welcoming and memorable. When in Sun Valley, a meal at Trail Creek Cabin is a must.

    the sleigh ride was wonderful even on a very cold dark night.. The stars that can be seen on the ride make the ride magical. Then the cabin was charming and the food great. FYI Up load the app Sky View to see exactly what the constellations are in the sky....its awesome

    Our expectations were blown away. We sat near the fireplace, which had a lit fire along and along with the decor, made it very cozy and inviting. Our waiter, John, was very personable, he was the perfect balance of attentive without making us feel rushed. He gave some great recommendations. The food was outstanding! All four of us raved about every course -- brussel sprouts were melt in your mouth and I can't get the homemade ravioli out of my head, even the house salad (which can be unexciting), got rave reviews at our table. Thank you for a great night!

    Sleigh ride was cold (dress for it) but totally worth it. The full moon over the mountains did clearly add to the the experience. The trout was unbelievable although the member of our party that ordered the buffalo was not exactly unhappy!!

    Trail Creek cabin is always so warm and inviting, especially in winter. The ambiance was always the highlight, but the food wasn't anything special. We had not been back in several years, and we were pleasantly surprised to find the quality of the food had improved significantly! I had a delicious short rib meal and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his duck confeit. The brussel sprout appetizer was another winner! Our only complaint was we were seated in the yurt room with three large parties that were very loud. Other than that everything was lovely and our waiter, Andrew, took very good care of us. We will definitely be returning soon!

    Fun experience and great atmosphere. Skied from the lodge to the cabin for dinner. The crispy trout and buffalo tenderloin were fabulous. The only negative was the slightly old, browning lettuce used in the salad. Regardless, will go back next time we are in Sun Valley.

    The service was outstanding and the ambiance wonderful! The room was a bit noisy because they were really busy. We enjoyed the live music. The food was outstanding although the portions were a bit small. If you are hungry, I would suggest making sure to start with a salad or appetizer. The Trail Creek cabin hits the mark for a very special evening, I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to have an authentic Sun Valley experience.

    We have been having dinner here on our visits to Sun Valley the past 6 years. The food is good and the setting is cozy taking you back to the days when Hemingway visited and wrote by the fire. It is definitely a special occasion restaurant. You need a few hours to relax and enjoy.

    Took the horse drawn wagon to trail Creek cabin from sun valley inn, nice treat! The cabin is beautiful, nice big fireplaces with blazing fires. We appreciate being seated in the dining room without all the small active children. The bison steak and lamb shanks were delicious and very tender. Salads and chicken soup also quite yummy! Staff extremely attentive but not overbearing, and very knowledgeable about the courses offered.

    you have totally changed the menu from "cabin"- "ski lodge" - "comfort food" to more fine dining. We missed the pot of soup, meat loaf, scones, ribs you used to serve. If I want the type of food you now feature I'll go to the city. We'll not return unless the menu goes back to "cabin" type food

    Our extended family ate dinner here (including a 2 year old and 4 year old), and as always the setting was beautiful and the food was hearty. It was a wonderful experience for the kids as well, with a new kids menu and waiter bringing their food first. The service was very attentive and we left with full bellies and great memories!

    Nothing short of heaven. Food was outstanding, our waiter was the best, and the scones sealed the deal. Now, a 25.00 corking fee is a bit much as their winelist is just ok, and over priced as well.

    Our family ate here after a small mountaintop wedding for my daughter. The food was delicious! Among us we had braised lamb shanks, Idaho rainbow trout and the Bison filet. The portions were very generous and we had leftovers to take home :) The ambiance is great with fireplaces blazing. WE also had great service. We will visit again!

    Three best buddies had Valentine's Dinner @ TCC - we all chose the Special V-Day 6 course menu with a glass of champagne for starters and chocolate covered strawberries as a departure treat! We all agreed this was the best dinner in our five days in Sun Valley. Each course was perfectly presented and delicious - our compliments to the new TCC chef! This is definitely a restaurant we'll dine at again and highly recommend to all foodies who appreciate great cuisine & atmosphere!!

    Out of town friends were visiting and we wanted them to experience the amazing Trail Creek Cabin. This is a magical place. The food was very good. The service on the other hand was marginal. This is a restaurant people are coming to for the experience. The hostess and server were not the least bit welcoming. Would have been nice to have some brief chat about the history or some special memorabilia. It's not just a place to eat. Disappointing our server could have been someone working at Denny's. Surprised there are no appetizers on the menu. It really should be open in the summer!!!!

    A charming atmosphere that continues the Sun Valley tradition. Good service, good food. If it's cold, skip the sleigh ride and drive out although I'm sure SV will,provide car service if you decide a one way sleigh ride is enough.

    This was our first visit to Trail Creek. The food, service and ambience at the restaurant was great! A couple of things to be aware of: We signed up for the sleigh ride to the restaurant and four course menu. The restaurant automatically charges full fare prior to your actual reservation and requires a 7 day cancellation. The pick up location for the sleigh ride is at the Sun Valley Inn (resort). We were a little disappointed that there wasn't enough snow for the sleigh ride through the woods, instead we loaded a horse drawn wagon that followed the regular road out to the cabin.

    We had a fabulous experience at Trail Creek Cabin. Spectacular rustic and historic setting. A terrific staff with friendly and professional servers and an excellent manager, Matt. All of them made us feel welcome, attended us deftly, and wished us farewell as we left. The gratin starter is just the right amount and yummy. Soup and brussels sprout salad were delicious. We had all clean plates at our table - NY steak, boar, and bison special. The dessert assortment was excellent. It is very nice to have a selection of small treats to share rather than one big dessert with multiple spoons. Sun Valley has some of the best pastry chefs around. (Check out the sweets at the Konditorei in Sun Valley Mall). We did not do the sleigh/wagon ride, since we have done it many times before, but it is a must-do experience if you are visiting Sun Valley for the first time. Spectacular on a starry night. Trail Creek Cabin will never disappoint. It has the perfect blend of great food, service and setting.

    We loved Trail Creek Cabin's authentic western spirit and beautiful mountain and creekside views, made especially charming in the snow. The food was exceptional -- the Raclette starter and beet salad we shared, and all of our entrees that we allowed each other to sample (meat and fish dishes). The service was excellent as well. We will definitely return next winter.
