We had our wedding dinner at the Peekamoose Restaurant. We were a group of 14 and had our dinner in the private dining room, and it could not have been more perfect! We had pre-selected our wines, and a menu with a variety of choices for our guests. Marybeth and Van were wonderful to work with and our event was... More

Lots of options for what type of "ambience" you want, whether it's sitting at a bar, sitting in a cozy room that's straight out of a mountain lodge, or a mainstream restaurant dining room. Lots of food options (even for this picky eater). The mushroom risotto was to die for. Great portion sizes (and options for smaller sizes if that's... More

We had an amazing dinner at Peekamoose on Saturday (3/15). The service is really great - our server Sean was great and his suggestions were really helpful. The chicken was one of the best that we had and one must really try the lemon curd. The staff is always very courteous and friendly. A great place and a must try... More

We and our friends enjoyed this restaurant immensely. The food is generally excellent, though I didn't care for the short ribs (too fatty/mushy, and not in a good way). The scallops were delectable, and the pinot was superb. The salad dressing was memorable, as it tasted like a French recipe often used by my deceased German mother-in-law. The kid menu... More

Busy on a Saturday ski season night, but great atmosphere, great service & everything you'd hope for. Kids can toast marshmellows in fire pit outside while you wait for table, Dad can sip great pinot while making sure they don't fall in. Best onion rings I've had in years

I have been here quite a few times. Our server this evening was Shawn (he plays ice hockey for fun in his free time). He was friendly attentive and made some excellent recommendations. The bartender Dianna is as always upbeat. The new person Viva also was very helpful. We ate onion rings (made in house) Chopped salad, Eggplant and ricotta... More

Wow what a meal! From the squash soup and red beet soup to the sirloin steak and pork shank , I was blown away. We also had arctic char, sort of like salmon, and though I wasn't a big fan, I am now when it is prepared at Peekamoose! The presentation of everything was beautiful and the food is just... More

We got the recommendation for this place from Gateway Lodge where we were staying and this was a great find after a long day of skiing! I had the Fisherman's stew- it was a great soup- one of the specials. I continued with the Slow Braised Beef Short Ribs that were excellent. Make sure you leave space for dessert! The... More

My companion remembers when this place was Rudy's Big Indian Restaurant many years ago. How things have changed. Her best friend ate here on her most recent anniversary and recommended it to us. We arrived around 5:30 on a Thursday night, so we were able to get seated without a reservation. We had a very patient and friendly server who... More
