Description: A romantic hideaway since 1937, Trail Creek Cabin is a must Sun Valley dining adventure. Sleighs depart for the restaurant from the village near the Sun Valley Inn during the ski season, and you may also drive. The seasonal menu has a western flare with items including locally raised beef, Idaho Trout, baby back ribs and the Hemingway meat loaf. All complimented by a great wine list and a full bar.

Have been to trail creek a few times. We have always had a great experience. You can ride a wagon or sled over depending on time of year. Sit outside in the summer. We have to young teens and they enjoy to food. Nice wines. Great food.

This is about a mile or two up the road from the resort. The location is beautiful. Shauna was our server and she was great. We started with a sturgeon appetizer and had the vegetarian entree and the meatloaf. Both were super. The wine list was pretty good and the prices were fair. Definitely would go back again.

Closed when we stopped by, so I walked the grounds. The setting of the tables stream side is lovely, and I will make a point to enjoy an afternoon drink or dinner on the deck out back when we come next time. It looks like the perfect quiet, pleasant setting to sit and dine with your mate.

We went to this restaurant by car, but you can arrive by sleigh also. Our party was a group of 13. I was very impressed with the wait staff. They divided our table and both took orders and served so we all ordered and received our food in a timely manner. The beet salad was wonderful, as was the trout.... More

First of all, we rode a horse-drawn wagon from Sun Valley Inn to Trail Creek Cabin - how delightful! It was a beautiful, crisp evening and they provided warm blankets for us. It was about a 35 min. ride under twinkling stars. When we arrived, they were very quick to seat us! There was a fire crackling in the fireplace... More

We were planning to visit Sun Valley during New Years week. The Sun Valley Lodge website gave the impression that we must book the popular sleigh ride to Trail Creek Cabin in advance, so I paid for the non-refundable ride in November. When we arrived, there was not enough snow, so we went on a wagon ride instead. Although the... More

Trail Creek Cabin food and service is excellent. However best to bypass the SV wagon or sleigh transportation. The Sun Valley Wagon/Sleigh service staff are inexperienced and inept and you can find yourself being rushed through dinner to stay on their timetable. Very unrelaxing and not a fun experience.

I'll make this short: Pros: Beautiful scenery if you sit by the window, nice atmosphere, we had a good waitress. Cons: food is ok - for the prices I'd expect the food to be at least good. We arrived and there were no other guests at the restaurant - we didn't have a reservation and the host still made us... More

We visited there midweek just after Labor Day, knowing the area not to be crowded, and even though the place was almost empty, they still expected reservations. When we said we did not have one, they seemed very put out by our misstep, which ended up making us feel unwelcome. They "found us a table" on the patio by the... More
