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

The food here was pretty good but it was presented absolutely beautifully! The cherries jubilee for dessert was probably one of the best things I've ever had in my entire life!

Love the resort, but luke warm on the Thistle Pub. The atmosphere is great, but the service is poor and slow. Maybe it was just our waiter, but he would get lost in the kitchen for 1/2 hour. Dinner took 2 1/2 hours.

Good food and friendly waiter. A little overpriced. A little chaotic. But fun. Good view. Right near the mountain.

The service was great, food was very good. However, we were seated in a narrow room with one small window, next to a table of 10+ adults. The noise was deafening, which really put a damper on the experience.

The food was just to my liking. I ordered the New York Strip steak with stilton and an onion reduction. Perfection! The wine list was diverse and pleasing. Very good.
