All the bars and restaurants in Heavenly have competitive Happy Hour prices. Gunbarrel Tavern has a prime spot under the ski gondola and they have 2 large fire pits to gather around to hear the nightly music. October is the off season between summer and winter skiing, so things are quiet here. Opinions may vary during peak seasons. We didn't... More

Great dinner selection and personable staff. Had the short ribs and wish I had another plate right now!! Appetizers, cauliflower and nachos were a perfect start!

Perfect location right next to a ton of hotels. Very industrial inside in comparison to a lot of lodge style buildings! We had ate appetizers prior to coming to eatery, if we had not the portions would have been fine for me (24 lady) but my husband would have left hungry. We ordered the kobe beef sliders, the beef was... More

Came here for lunch, food and drinks were delicious. Our waitress was very nice. My only problem was the Hostess was very unfriendly. No smile, nothing that was welcoming.

My wife and I stopped in about 4pm. A two person musical group was playing music from our era so we stayed for drinks. Excellent beer so we stayed till dark. We were getting hungry so we ordered a tritip sandwich with homemade seasoned chips. The sandwich was flavorless and the chips were hard as a rock. We were hungry... More

Amazing braised short rib! Would not have expected this from a touristy spot, but I would go back just for that meal!

Great happy hour with $4 wine and excellent nachos, usually $14 for $5. We sat outside by the fire pit and listened to live music by an excellent country/folk performer. We were cautioned by the hostess that there were yellow jackets but we were not bothered by them.

I'm not sure who trains hostess and service staff but my wife and I felt ignored and then rushed all evening. Music was very poor too. Food was okay. Better options exist in Heavenly Village for sure.

We went there for a late lunch/early dinner after a day of seeing the sites. It was close to the Marriott and I liked the name. We were seated and after 20 minutes of no contact we said adios and we won`t be back. I don't usually do negative reviews but this place ticked me off.

Loved the modern bar menu. Drinks could use less ice - but were good. Food was delicious! Nachos were huge - a meal in themselves. Tower 16 Ahi Tuna Poke appetizer - YUM! As well as the Kobe Beef Sliders with carmelized onions - DELISH!

Thank TravelwithDane
