My son, husband, mother and I thoroughly enjoyed eating lunch here on a sunny Sunday on Columbus Day weekend. We were visiting my son at college and went on a drive through the notch and ended up taking the gondola up. What a sight! My son was eager to try the restaurant. He and his grandmother selected the Monte Cristo... More

The food is just OK. The service is awful. And we were there during the peak leaf peeping season. Sure glad we missed the snow. Other than the view and the ride up and down the mountain I don't have much positive to say.

In fairness to the chefs, I did not taste the food so this rating is for the service. I arrived at the restaurant with my husband, my mother in law, and my 3 month old. We thought we'd have an hour lunch and be out of there seeing as how they had basic sandwiches and burgers on the menu. We... More

The food at the Cliff House Restaurant was surprisingly good, likely due to our fatigue after a long hike. The staff were friendly and attentive and very forgiving of 2 sweaty hikers. I understand that the restaurant is only open limited hours depending on the time of year, so be sure to call ahead if there is any doubt. Highly... More

Great mountain top views. We dined at night. The ski lift trip was fun to the top. It's amazing how complete the resturaunt was even though its at the top of the mountain. We had to cut our vist short as the winds picked up almost to the point where they'd stop running the lift. They joked we'd have to... More

Cliffhouse offers a really good cheese fondue! It comes with bread, apples and pepperoni (Big enough for two) but what you really need to have is their hot chocolate which is the best I've ever had, or if you prefer something alcoholic I would go for a bloody mary! Can get full quickly during the busy season, so make a... More

Just one remark. You do not want to leave. The views, the food and the staff makes it more appealing than the skiing !!!

The view is spectacular. That said, the food is also great--nice wines by the glass, and enough variety on the menu to satisfy most. Staff is accommodating. One of the best burgers around, nice Caesar salad, to which you can add salmon, steak or chicken. I'm just dismayed that more larger groups with young children are making their way to... More
