After a snowy trip up the mountain and a 5:00 p.m. check-in, we were ready for some dinner but too tired to cook in our condo or figure out the shuttles, so we made our way to the South Mountain Grille in our resort. We almost didn't dine here because the door to the restaurant from the resort was locked, but when we went outside to find the shuttle, the exterior entry was open. We were seated immediately.
The restaurant is lovely. We were seated next to a window that was partially covered by a snowdrift -- we had fantastic snow for the last week in March. I ordered a filet, my husband the duck and my son a pizza. Although they had run out of pepperoni (running out of things was a theme to this last bit of their season all over the resort), they made him a bacon pizza that he loved.
My husband and I loved our dishes as well. I will say that the chef here errs on the side of rare, so keep that in mind. Even though they were slightly undercooked for our tastes, they were so great we didn't want to send them back and risk getting them overdone, which is worse!
Unfortunately, they were out of all but high-end cabernets, but our server recommended a great Malbec as a substitute.
Overall, service, atmosphere and food were all great and a welcome relief from our snowy trip up the steep mountain roads!
