During our stay, we ate breakfast several times. The food was good. The dill hash browns drool-worthy (my husband's code word for excellent) . Above all, the servers, hostess etc. were very personable and interesting to talk to.

Right on Snowbird plaza, this is in the middle of all the action. While it's not haute cuisine, it's nicely prepared, and not too expensive considering you are at a resort. We had burgers and a turkey-avocado sandwich, with fries. For once, the amount of fries was fine--not a gigantic portion no one should ever eat. Our burgers were nicely... More

Food was really good, and the views are just as nice! Be prepared to spend a pretty penny, though! Try the pancakes or french toast!

We stopped in here for an early lunch during a day off from skiing. We waited at the "please wait to be seated" sign and were finally greeted by a bus boy who didn't seem to know what was going on. We chose a table near the back within view of the kitchen. There were only 4 tables seated, including... More

What is the opposite of apre-ski? My wife and I had breakfast here every morning before hitting the slopes. It's very convenient - right near the tram loading area and the exit to Peruvian lift - and since our lodge didn't have a restaurant eating here was a no-brainer. The breakfast menu had everything from huge omelets to a bowl... More

Good local beer choices; also some very tasty wings and nachos. The spring rolls were big but did not have shrimp like in Thai restaurants and the peanut sauce was fair.

Good food right off slopes with nice view of the mountain. Easy place to stop and have a nice ski lunch. The burger was good, roast turkey panini, turkey avocado sandwich, kids liked chicken tenders... nice place with a great food.. Maybe the best place to eat among few choices in snowbird..

I had lunch at the Forklift with my family. The Cobb salad, turkey bacon avocado sandwich, pesto grilled cheese with tomato soup were all very good. Our waitress provided excellent service. I would definitely return. I wish they would offer dinner as well.

We twice had lunch here during our ski vacation. The location is convenient to the tram and a high speed quad chair lift. The menu is varied enough to accommodate kids to adults. Service was efficient. Portions of salads, sandwiches, fish and chips, turkey chili were generous, fresh and tasty. The cost was ~ $20 pp. The coffee is always... More

Many locals only ski with perfect days and head down canyon immediately afterward. Many visitors retire early to their hotel rooms to nurse knees and nerves from a straight down day in powder or ice. For the remaining few a snack or pitcher at the Forklift is a great way to end day. On warm days sit outside. On colder... More
