Sometimes when you stay at a hotel or particularly a resort where there isn't much else around, the restaurants are not that special. We had dinner one night at the Thistle Pub and Grille and thought the food was very good. The highlight was probably the cold avocado, cucumber soup. It was really delicious, but our entrees were also very... More

Maybe we just had a bad experience but our meal was off on all fronts. Long wait, Order was wrong food was cold and sub par. We did receive a 25% discount but nonetheless is was not good. We are very easy to please and pretty laid back and we did not want this to overshadow the excellence of Chrystal... More

The service is slow, they really need more healthy options on the menu. They are also unable to make modifications.

Overall good food, attentive service and nice atmosphere. We had the whitefish, which was good, but the breading was a bit dry; the udon noodles with ahi tuna which was not as expected but still enjoyed; and, the whitefish sandwich which was very good. The salads and soup were good. While this wasn't the best meal ever, it was still... More

Went for lunch. We both really liked what we ordered and service was good. The restaurant was not very busy at all which surprised us. I think there are so many activities that many people don't eat out until dinner. Definitely recommend.

Such a nice looking place! Two in our party ordered the Wagyu N.Y. Strip $40.00 each (genetically predisposed to intense marbling) recommended by our waitress, and two ordered the Scottish Salmon. $28.00. We had really high hopes to match the high prices. We were so disappointed. The steaks were grisly, and the salmon dry. The morals ordered for the steak... More

Went there a couple a weeks ago for a overnighter. We ate at the Thistle and had there rib steak special, it was at least half fat. Told the waitress and it was like "To BAD"..The salad and drinks were very good.

We often eat at the Thistle while golfing and sking at Crystal Mountain. The location of the restaurant is fantastic. It's at the bottom of the ski slopes and next to the golf courses. The food and service is always top notch! Love the large selection of single malt scotch!

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff, but food is overpriced for what you get. Even the childrens' menu items were $9 and $10
