Spectacular view, nice meal

The tram ride there was the best part of the evening! It is simply spectacular -- an amazing view, and so special that it is the only way to get there. You have to make reservations, but it wasn't crowded when we went. (It was, however, HOT. The a/c was broken, and they could only open the bottom... read more

Mountain Creek Restaurant is accessed by the aerial tram, which is a great way to visit the unique setting and attractive restaurant. The wait staff is friendly and the ambiance is very good, but the food has deteriorated over the past two seasons and now meals are not nearly as enjoyable as they once were. The baked brie appetizer was... More

This restaurant is not what you would expect to find at a state park in West Virginia. The whole experience, including a gondola ride to get there, is remarkable. The prices are not for the feint of heart, but the food is totally worth it. My husband and I only tasted 2 of the entrees, filet mignon and crab cakes,... More

The food is bland and over cooked. We tried the seafood buffet and lots of the food there was just ordinary. The service is lacking. Their menu is very limited. The lighting is poor.

We went down to Mountain Creek at dusk for a late dinner. We had made reservations (make sure you do that) and had to wait just a few minutes to be seated. The reason we had to wait is that they were seating everyone by the windows to enjoy the view of the water and the sunset and the tram... More

All was good with the staff and food. Great view. I will definitely return on future visits. Great golf and other activities right by.

I'm amazed they can offer the variety of dishes in such a small restaurant. Every dish we tried was delicious. The steak au poivre was one of the best I've ever had, and at other meals we tried the fried alligator and gris, a rich potato and leek soup, venison chili, and trout. The vegetable side dishes were perfectly crisp-tender... More

The food was very good although the only vegetarian item on the menu, cabbage rolls, was unavailable due to the cabbage not being delivered soon enough. The chef did create a sauteed mushroom salad to eat, however. The steak was delivered overcooked for the diner that ordered it. Otherwise the appetizers and entrees were excellent. The river view was beautiful... More

Food is ok but very overpriced. Excellent service and the tram ride to the restaurant is different with sites of the New River Gorge and the beautiful West Virginia mountains. Nice place for romantic dates. Allow time for a relaxing walk along the river bank.

This meal was the best we had while staying at Pipestem and service was great. The view of the river and fall foliage was a spectacular addition to the experience, along with the tram ride down. (tram ride is free with meal receipt)
