We loved the fondue plate. The plate had: brownies, pound cake, bananas, strawberries, and berries and plenty of warm dipping chocolate sauce. A great treat for Après skiing with drinks and friends.

This place seems to have an identity crisis. Is it an excellent dessert place? No. Is it a bar? Yes. Does it have good food? No. Does it excel in chocolate? Definitely not. They told me their hot chocolate is their specialty so we tried it. First of all, if it is their specialty, they might want to use real... More

We sat outside after skiing down the mountain and were basically ignored even after flagging down staff. They never offered to clear plates or wipe down tables.

Skied down to meet my family for lunch at 12:30pm. Was told by hostess that there would be no problem getting a table for that time. Came back at to be seated and was told they couldn't serve food for a least a half hour because the chef didn't show up? Seriously? This is high ski season and I've NEVER... More

It has been two years since I have been here, but it was still delicious! Its right at the base of the main slope and also has a full bar and restaurant. I recently had the classic hot chocolate because I remember the spicy option being a little too hot for my tastebuds. On a cold day the fire outside... More

This was a great Apres Ski place in the spring. It is at the end of the main run into the village from the ski area (at least during the spring). Excellent atmosphere, great people watching, decent appetizers and good drinks.

We got there at 6:45 and they said they were closed. Their store hours said 11-9pm. I was really disappointed. It seemed like the bartender took one look at us and just said we're closed.

The Chocolate Bar is such a fun place to eat with the family or have a few drinks from the to go bar to cozy up with around the fire. The kids' menu is very good and both the children in our party were very happy, although I do think the kids have a better version of the macaroni and... More

My friend and I spent several hours here while our boyfriends rode the mountain bike trails. A very slow afternoon for the restaurant (us & a bridal party) We enjoyed a few cocktails and had an appetizer when the guys returned. The cheese plate was okay- two portions of mozzarella, cheddar, and brie. The sliders were large and the 1... More
