Great service, breathtaking view, very good food.

Service here is outstanding. Mountain Top could just be average and get away with it because of the view, but they took the dining experience to another level!

Arrived late, but welcomed by staff to enjoy dinner on the patio. Service is friendly and prompt. Staff did not rush us at all.

During my visit to the Inn's restaurants, it was never crowded and my meals here were great: good size portions and tasty. The coffee at breakfast, however, did not meet my expectations-- too weak. The service was fine and the views, again, a huge draw that add to the amazing ambience at this Inn and restaurants.

Enjoyed two dinners here -- the dinner menu is the same between the Tavern and the Dining Room. The Chicken Caesar salad was among the best I'd ever had. Other specials were delicious, some were very small "tasting" portions.

We were at the mountain top inn for a wedding so we were a captive audience for the restaurant. Other than the views this restaurant was definitely just average. The hours are VERY limited, especially on weekdays, so forget it if you want to sleep in! The menu is very limited and repetitive from lunch to dinner and the food... More

An Award Winning menu, and friendly service make this a must go for classic dining. A little costly, but really worth it. Food is very regional-oriented.

We were actually seated in the Tavern. We were a party of 6, it took one hour and 15 minutes for our plates to arrive. I had elk, which I ordered rare, received two small slices medium and one slice which was actually from another piece of meat, was more then well done! It looked like a leftover piece of... More

We recently went to the Mountain Top Inn for a birthday party. The dining room had amazing views of the mountains and was very rustic/classy. The service was also pretty good even with the large group of people we had in our party. The drinks were average, though cocktails were a bit spendy . Good beer on tap, though I... More
