Went here twice as it's really the only option on the hill unless you have a big budget. Have to say service was a bit slow but the food was pretty good. Staff were a bit hit and miss, some were really friendly, other times seemed a bit abrupt. Had the special one night and a pizza the second. Prices... More

I normally don't leave reviews but this was abysmal. The pizzas are abnormally greasy. As soon as it arrived, my wife knew it was going to make her sick. You'll need two napkins just to wipe off the liquid on the top. Worst of all, we waited almost one hour to get it. Brutal. In all honesty, if you're staying... More

We ordered 2 pizzas when 1 would have been more than enough for us. It was prepared perfectly and I think it was even a home made crust. We saw great colorful looking drinks being delivered to the tables around us that met with great compliments. Then there's Giant Jenga. It gets everyone's attention and gets total strangers talking. We... More

Sad place in summer. Deserted. Bartender didn't know how to make drinks. Food arrived cold. No one around. Not much choice of meals. This would be a great place for apre-skiing but not for a summer visit.

Got in nice and early before the silly season begins. Great service, I hope it holds up during the busy times too. The new chef did an excellent job with our meals and dessert. Will definitely be back to try out the pizzas next time!

Giant Jenga is still here but this year not much else. Several beers were off, food choice seemed dull. Waitress seemed confused. We got beer and food and it was not bad, just dull. Perhaps we were having a bad day. Perhaps they were. Not sure but there was a distinct lack of sparkle. Must try harder.

Good times. Good is ok. Now if you like Jenga. This is the place to be. Lots of fun. The band even gets into it.

This place is really close to what people would imagine a real saloon to look like. IIf you are looking for a place to hang out have a beer and ok food then this is your place. Service was incredibly slow but friendly. Atmosphere was a bit confusing. Rustic decor with good music, however, they also had ski movies showing... More

Love the atmosphere. Fireplace, games, good beer, etc. But food and service unbelievably bad. I was served Uncle Ben's rice! with a few mini pieces of chicken. Supposed chirizo sausage was hot dog quality. fireplace smokes, we reek of it. At one point we were asked if we wanted napkins. Who doesn't want napkins. Unacceptable.

I've frequented this bar since 2009. Service has never been outstanding - it's a bar - but tonight's visit just simply made me give up. Waiting 45 minutes for a menu special of chicken and rice? Sorry but that doesn't work. If you're going to provide a service then provide a service; do not make a pretence of it. I... More
