It's All About the Building and the Views!

Unless you are willing to take a hike of 3.8 miles and almost 2,000 vertical feet of climbing to get to The Roundhouse you need to add $23 per person to get there via the Sun Valley gondola.

3 out of 4 stars (I reserve 5 stars for the best of the best) Took the gondola up the mountain to hike around a bit and decided to get something to eat before heading out. During the summer they change their menu to have salads, burgers, and sandwiches. So I was a little disappointed when I could not order... More

One of the highlights of our trip to Sun Valley was the gondola ride at the Bald Eagle ski lift. We went up on the gondola (5-8 min. each way) and ate lunch at the Roundhouse on the patio. There was a very nice breeze and a viewpoint for pictures. If you wanted, you could take the open chair lift... More

Great place to stop and gather for friends while skiing the Sun Valley slopes. We stopped in for a beer and fondue which was perfect. You can enjoy outdoors on the deck and take in all the mountain views and plan your descent into the valley. Decent food, great view!

On our last day of skiing Sun Valley's perfectly groomed mountain on a perfect bluebird day, we decided to top off the day with lunch at the Roundhouse restaurant. I had the chicken, served with a little seasoned risotto and garlicy spinach. It was delicious. My husband had the tuna. He LOVED it as well. We toasted to our last... More

If you are skiing Bald Mountain this is a no brainier stop for at least one lunch, or stop for après ski at the bar then download on the gondola. Lovely historic property, great collection of old photos, really a step into the past. Lunch menu was perfect, nicer modern take on some salads ( loved the fennel ad radish... More

We stopped at the Roundhouse after taking the chair back down from the top of Mt. Baldy and enjoyed a chicken salad on the croissant and a chop salad. We were warned it might be 45 minutes to get our food, and it was, in part due to a power outage. We were very glad we weren't stuck on the... More

We went there yesterday via the gondola ride. Gorgeous, except for all the browned out hills in the area. The gondola ride was quiet and smooth- $20 each. Nicer when you get to the top. I ordered the Austrian Chicken salad sandwich. I found 2 tiny toothpick sized pieces of apple, where was the rest? Mostly tasted like chicken, that... More

After having read less than stellar reviews about The Roundhouse, my hiking partner and I were somewhat leary of eating our well-earned lunch here, but the thought of a large glass of iced tea after our strenuous 3mile hike made the decision a no-brainer. Great decision it turned out to be, because the food (and "real" iced tea) did not... More

Great view - nice ambiance - but the food is terrible. SV Resort needs to improve the quality of the food. Will not return.
