The food is good a bit expensive, but not out of line for a ski resort. The latest menu only had a few items that appealed to me. I'm more of a meat and potatoes guy and tend to like a less fancy fare so I often choose a burger or fish. They do do a good job and presentation... More

I had the best Rosemary and Potato soup when we stopped in here for lunch. So good! The service was okay, a little slow but friendly. Ambience was good.

Over priced...$15 for some fancy sausage with mashed potatoes at New Years. 20 minutes to get a beer at the bar...really!

I genuinely love this place. It's a must when we spend our time at Crystal. We had dinner there last night with friends and family and it was wonderful. We have been coming here for years. The food, wine selections, atmosphere, and service (Kelly is our favorite) are just terrific. Tonight we stopped in to request a possibly take out... More

I've been to the Thistle several times while skiing and have never been disappointed. This place is gorgeous and cosy and the food is always plentiful and delicious. The service is excellent as well. I had the Mac and cheese and it was the perfect dish after coming in from the cold. Others in the group were also very happy... More

I got the Kobe burger and it was so juicy! I would've liked to have more fries with it but they keep you filled up their their fresh baked bread with oil and balsamic vinegar. The balsamic vinegar was aged so it was super sweet and delicious. I wanted to buy some to take home.

We dined at Thistle Pub with another couple while on a one night getaway (quiet season in early November) and had a most enjoyable meal. The restaurant is relaxed resort atmosphere -- nice bar specializing in various single malt Scotches, fireplace, cozy dining area, dress as you like (very casual to dressy, it all works). The menu offers a nice... More

We ate here about 2 years ago and the food was OK not great. Thought we would try again and we were very pleased with the quality of the food, the price, the atmosphere and the service. Only the bar service was slow . . . one bartender for a full bar and the restaurant. We are locals so we... More

The setting is very nice. Choose the main dining room. We were in the little room and felt like second tier guests. Service is first rate. Food is a bit pricy for where you are. Resorts are like that. By the way this is an off season ski resort. Food was pretty good but lacked good fall color and flair.... More
