We had the pleasure of dining at The View restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and it was a great candlelit evening. The service was very attentive, the food delicious, and the view and overall atmosphere can't be beat. Highly recommend.

Beautiful view over Mirror Lake, beautiful building and wonderful food. I had a ribeye that was unbelievable and my wife had salmon which was equal. The desserts were scrumptious. A little pricey but worth it in my opinion.More

When we stayed at your resort in September, 2016 we had room service with burgers (delicious) and the most incredible French Onion Soup I have ever had! Did that come from your restaurant or from another one on the property? I will be visiting the area in the next week and I want to make sure I come to your resort to get another bowl of that awesome soup! Thank you.
