Even though it was the end if the season we did another yearly trip to Empire. We had a few non skiers with us so it was nice for them to se the view, runs and lodge. Food is consistently fresh and the menu changes nightly. Pork cheeks were excellent , and the lamb leg cooked in the hearth was... More

Have never had a dining experience quite like this. "Stations", but not in the blah buffet kind of way. Amazing cheese. Fantastic stews. Fondue awesome. Definitely pricey.

Our party of 10 loved this experience - kids and adults alike. Yes, it is expensive, but everything in Deer Valley is ridiculously priced! The dessert table is shameless and we ate more than our weight in chocolate fondue. We especially loved the melting cheese - my young son had 3 plates of this. The salads were fresh and the... More

We have been going to Fireside Dining for years. We have taken friends and family. We have gone in large groups. It is a wonderful Swiss-like experience with raclette over a roaring fire. The stews, lamb and fish entrees are fabulous. Adults and children alike love the atmosphere. You can take the kids on a sleigh ride. My husband did... More

We have experienced Fireside Dining at Empire Lodge for years now and despite the regularly climbing prices, we have continued to return. Yes, the food is quite good, but it doesn't vary much year after year. Much is the same-from the rosti potatoes to the stews to the carving station (lamb-roast-ham). After several years it does become "been there, done... More

Make sure you get to visit the fireside dining evenings at Empire. Five dining stations - eat as much as you can for $55 and it's all good. .. Only open in the evening on Wed Thursday Fri and Sat.

Despite rave reviews, I thought there was potential for this place to be cafeteria-like, touristic and crowded. It was none of those. The rooms were spacious, the tables spaced far apart and the service was swift at whisking away dirty plates. Some of the food was extraordinary - the famed veal stew was amazing, the lamb was good, and I... More

We love Fireside Dining and look forward to our return each year! From the crackling fires ablaze in multiple mountain-sized fireplaces, to the celebratory type of environment, to the delicious food, it's a perfect way to have a unique, wonderful dining experience in the mountains.
