This is a cool place. You take the gondola from Lion's Head to the top of Vail Mountain, where a shuttle drives you to a remote lodge built on top of a mountain. The sunset was amazing. And the food was the best meal we had in Vail. Although the food was excellent, there were some problems. First, we were... More

Great food, great service, awesome view, and wonderful ambiance -- Game Creek has it all! Take a ride up Gondola One in Vail and then ride to Game Creek via horseback, shuttle (summer) or snowcat (winter). Be treated to an awesome view from the deck while you sip a cocktail. Then be ushered to your quiet table to begin an... More

Hands down this is the best meal in Vail and then add in the location and sunset! This was our second time here, last was in July 2013. We could not wait to come back after the first visit and can't wait to go back next year! The service is outstanding and the food is amazing! Do yourself a favor... More

My husband and I dined here on our first night of three in Vail. It was the perfect start to our romantic weekend! We had a 7:15 reservation and it was perfect timing to see the 8:19 sunset through the dining room's large windows near the end of our meal. Out of all the restaurants in Vail, this was our... More

One of our favorite dinners in Vail! The evening starts with the gondola ride up the mountain followed by the adventurous drive to the chalet. My daughters (10 & 7) were speechless. The service and food were excellent. I would only recommend this restaurant to families with well behaved children who can enjoy a "fine dining" experience. The evening ended... More

The entire experience was amazing. We took the Gondola up and, rather than being picked up by the shuttle, chose the horse riding option to the restaurant. After the 30 minute beautiful ride, we arrived at the restaurant and were immediately invited to the deck for a drink (the drinks were incredible). The views from that deck are some of... More

I'm a huge Game Creek fan. From the royal treatment on the way to the chalet (accessible only by Gondola and snowcat - hope for Roy as your driver!), to the beautiful setting and venue, to the warm crackling welcome as you enter the doors...I can't get enough, and recommend it to everyone I come across in Vail. Have a... More

Loved riding the gondola and snow cat to this gorgeous spot. Ordered the 3 course option for birthday dinner. Food was attractively presented and creatively prepared. Overall service left a bit to be desired as there were several long stretches waiting for drinks/bread and plates to be cleared. Waitstaff did offer an appetizer and dessert bonus tasting, and also provided... More

Fantastic fun getting the gondola and snow cat up to the restaurant. Cocktails at the bar were delicious and really different. The fixed menu was mainly excellent. Pork starter was superb. Entree of lamb was a real winner but wagyu beef a little disappointing was quite tough. Deserts and cheese platters were lovely. The atmosphere is superb. Highly recommend this... More
