Cute little bistro in the Village. We just visited for a quick lunch out on the patio. Service was friendly and helpful. I was thrilled that they had so many gluten free options, including their crepes, which come in extensive sweet & savory options. I chose a dessert one with bananas, coconut, & chocolate...yum! They also offer a ton of... More

We had dinner on the patio, which is heated if necessary and was very comfortable. Inside seating is rather limited. The service was, if anything, too helpful. Lots of wine but not too many by the glass and a bit expensive by the glass. The food is reasonably priced and tasty. The roasted turkey pannini was especially good.

Husband and I had dinner here and it was very nice. We enjoyed wine and each had a different salad. He had the tuna and I had a great fruit salad - it really was good!!

The place looks great and it is located just next to the Gondola and so you would expect it to be a great Apres ski bar. Failed! The staff were indifferent and slow and even with a DJ it failed to develop any atmosphere. (They need to check out how they do it in Austria!). The food was tasty and... More

Side Door is one of our "must go to" places every time we go to Mammoth. The staff is always welcoming and usually remembers our names.The wine list is extensive. The atmosphere is classy but never pretentious. The bar is sometimes quiet but usually have great conversation.You never know when the bar games will come out--always a great time. Happy... More

A great little wine bar and restaurant at the base of the gondola in Mammoth Village. We found this place in 2010, and were delighted to find it still operating in 2014. Happy hour between 1700-1930 is great value. Don't miss the Swiss fondue!

For a low-key and casual spot you can't beat Side Door. The savory and dessert crepes are both exceptional; and the price is right.

This little wine bar is a cozy place to have a glass of wine after a long day on the slopes. The service here was excellent and very friendly. They have some great appetizer/ small plates to snack on as well. You can even buy bottles of wine to go, to take up to your room or to head out... More

They have a $10 menu which gets you a panini or savory Crepe and a dessert crepe. It will fill you up with tasty food for little green. Their salads are good as well and this place has an extensive wine list. They do fondue, which I haven't tried, but if you want the full apres ski experience, this would... More
