Description: Come visit Utah's first distillery since the 1870's, and the only ski-in gastro-distillery in the world. Located in Old Town Park City, at the bottom of Quit N' Time ski run and next to the Town Lift. High West Distillery and Saloon is an intimate gathering place serving nouveau Western fare, a full selection of fine wine and spirits, and our own small-batch, mountain-crafted, award-winning whiskeys and vodkas.

“Pricey but unique, worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

This place is unique in several ways, and worth a visit, but it will cost you. The food is pretty good, but not outstanding. Our server was great, friendly and attentive. There are several dining areas and they feel like small private rooms. Open and nice lighting. Everyone visits the bar which makes it crowded, but when a place distills it's own whiskey, you have to have a whiskey drink, right? There is a good drink menue which guides you to some fun drinks, such as whiskey and sassparilla, or whiskey/ginger beer. Those drinks are $13 each. If the bar is too full to sit, there is an outdoor waiting area with a fire ring. You can also take a tour of the distillery. All things considered, I reccomend a visit here, it's different than other restaurants in town and although a bit pricey, it's worth it.

“Awesome environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

Went for drinks with the hubster after skiing and had a great time. I loved the decor and reclaimed wood/renovations inside...well done! I drank dead mans boots which was sorta like a margarita with rye. The hubster had local beer. Thank goodness Utah is done with prohibition. A lovely fun place.

Dear Barbara L...

We appreciate that you and the hubster joined us apres ski for a few libations...one of our favorite activities! Thanks for your kind words and we celebrate the fact that Utah cast the deciding vote (36th) to end Prohibition!

Thanks for sharing your experience and we look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit from Michigan.

Cheers...

“Plenty of better options in Park City”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Not worth the wait for a table as the food was mediocre at best and the service was average at best. Lots of hype for little else. Sure was popular but not sure why. We went to the No Name Saloon twice after this experience and that was a good time with some good "bar food".

Dear ICSTARS...

Thanks for the feedback and for sharing your thoughts on Trip Advisor. While we are a busy Saloon, we do emphasize and strive to deliver our guests high quality victuals whether seated at the bar or a dining table as well as top notch service. I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations and thank you for bringing it to our attention. The No Name is a great iconic spot in town also, and we're glad your experience there was positive.

Sincerely...

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Now I know a LOT of Americans are going to disagree with this comment, however most of the restaurants in Park City are average at best, and some just not very good at all.

However the 'High West' is worth a visit - reasonable prices, good food and plenty of choices as far as drinks are concerned.

Well located too - it's easy to get to and from as the free buses go right past.

Dear Hueyoz...

Thanks for the shout out from Australia regarding our food, cocktail selection and value! We appreciate the love and you taking the time to post a review. Keep an eye out for our whiskey "Down Under" as we just entered that market this past summer.

Cheers!

“Fun drinks and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

The one problem with High West is the two hour wait. In prime time it is hard to get in. The whiskey drinks are fun. I enjoyed Dead Man's Boots. The food was very good. It is a fun place.

Thank you for sticking around and enduring the wait. It can get lengthy during the busy months in winter and we appreciate your patience. We also appreciate you taking a few moments to share your 5 star experience once you got in. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Park City as well and look forward to serving you again on your next visit from Florida.

Cheers...
