When you are up there and far away from the nearest restaurant, this is a good choice. You can sit in the waiting lounge and enjoy the views while you wait for your table. We had the chicken wings and chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese sandwich. All items on the menu were standard fare but good enough.

We came on a pretty busy day, and they were still awesome. We had the cheese and pretzel appetizer, cheeseburger, veggie burger, and a slice of pie. The staff were nice and helpful, the gift shop was nice, and the food was GREAT! If you're ever on your way through, be sure to check this place out!!!

Although their sign advertises "fine dining," it's actually "good enough" dining. Their menu is mostly sandwiches, burgers, soups, and a few hot meals. While the view is spectacular, the restaurant is very basic with wood that tables and chairs. We ordered cheese burgers, salads, and their chili. It was okay. We had to laugh when one of our party asked... More

Enjoy a 360 degree view. Mtn views are spectacular with hiking trails, restaurant, tent camping and of course the journey to the top. Restaurant has good atmosphere with a nice porch to relax, the food is fair and priced reasonable. We visit a few times a year through the seasons. Each season has its own view, enjoy.

A short walk to the building from the parking lot. Beautiful viewing area of the mountains with a small area to buy gifts also. The food was delicious and the prices were extremely reasonable. Would definitely recommend

It was a cold day (32 degrees) and after a great hike with the family we were hungry! I didn't want to go down from our mountain top experience yet so we dropped by this place in the park. The parking lot was full so I was prepared to wait. The hostess told us 30 minutes but it didn't take... More

Food was good. The four of us had soup; 3 veggie and beef and 1 pinto bean soup. They need to remove the veggie soup from the menu if they are no longer serve it. The veggie and bee soups were good however the pinto bean soup had hardly any beans in it and was cold. The individual we were... More

We were there on Columbus Day weekend, so there was a wait, but only about 10 minutes. The menu was simple, prices reasonable. I had grilled cheese and fries for $6.95. There were soups and sandwiches and I noticed some great looking homemade cakes as I came in. The service was good.
