We took the Gondala ride up to the cliff house. We hiked and then stopped at the cliff house for a few drinks and lunch. The view is amazing! My fiance and I tried the Dirty Mayor cider, it was excellent. We also split a sandwich which was great.

We sat outside on a beautiful July day and the view and setting were amazing. We weren't right at the edge but it was still a unique lunch perspective. You pretty much know going in that you're paying more for the location because, well, it can't be easy to get food to the top of the highest park in Vermont.... More

It was the first day of the Summer season the restaurant was open and they were definitely still working out the kinks. They were out of multiple things on the menu and the food took a long time to be brought-out with the empty tables around. While I wasn't impressed with the service, the view was great and I expect... More

Took the tram to the top of the mountain specifically to have lunch. It did not disappoint! We arrived a few minutes after they opened (11am) and were seated right next to a window. The views were beautiful and it was lots of fun to see all of the skiers and snowboarders getting off the lifts and heading down the... More

Went up on the gondola for an evening wine tasting. The place tries to mimic the night mountain-top dining experiences that are common in Europe, but it has a ways to go. The wine merchants gave good talks in support of some mediocre vintages. The food was also appropriately mediocre. For example a steak that was called a boneless rib... More

You MUST take the gondola to reach this restaurant, which is located at the top of the gondola at 3,625'. Limited menu as one would expect. Fantastic views of gondola operation, mountain and valley. Inside and outside seating area. Efficient wait staff, but inflexible on substitutions, etc. One really must dine here to fully appreciate the Green Mtn area around... More

The view was magnificent. The beer fondue was good but not great. Salad was okay. Drinking a Shed Mountain Ale on a mountain is pretty cool.

Excellent beverage list and outstanding cheese fondue for two. We had a nice time with fantastic views. We sat outside and they have blankets for you to use. We had a corner view and had a blast. Worth the time and money!
