Typical bar fare done really well. Recommend the pulled pork Sammy.

We ate in the bar and thought the food was ok, but nothing special.

Best part of the experience was the hot bread served prior to our meal. Place had been billed as the best in the area, so we had higher expectations I guess. Service was very good tho and the place seemed to attract a different crowd, that is, not the usual ski bums looking for pizza and beer. Folks at a neighboring table had a dog with them, seems to be pretty common at Squaw.

Nice ambiance and the food was very good but not great. A bit pricey however solid service with the staff going out of their way to insure we enjoyed our dinning experience. An interesting menu and if you are an adventurous eater, you'll enjoy your visit. Alternately, you will still find some tasty enjoyable entrees.
