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

We enjoyed several breakfasts here (the Wile Tomato was closed due to the time of year and fewer guests on site) along with drinks at the Bar (they have an excellent selection of Single Malt Scotch, including Craggenmore). We also had dinner here one night and all four of us thought it was very good. My choice was a Hamburger... More

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and professional servers. However the food does not meet the expectations set by the type of restaurant this is striving to be. We visited on a Wednesday evening in September, there were 4 other tables but it was not overly busy. My partner ordered the soup and I had Caesar salad to start. Soup... More

We spent the weekend at crystal (loved it) tried 4 times to eat here because it was recommended. Tried to get reservations (day of) but we had problems getting anyone on the phone. ?? I guess you have to book through the hotel??? Hung up on 4 times. Walked in for a late lunch around 2:00. We waited 15 minutes... More

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.
