We booked this restaurant while staying up at Beaver Creek during the holiday season, specifically on New Years Day night. We had our ski travel agent confirm with the restaurant that they indeed have a vegetarian menu as one of our group is vegetarian. They confirmed. Upon arrival and after a quick perusal of the menu, it was clear that there was not a vegetarian option unless you call 3 tbsp. of potato soup, a side salad a side of mac & cheese or some potatoes a full meal. if it weren't already so late, I would have left. Me and my husband ordered the pork chop and it was just OK. We cook much better at home and as a result I ate half. The side of potatoes were ok but not $8 worth. My son ordered the elk and loved it. I believe he was the only happy person out of our 7 person group. The waiter, although friendly had a lot to learn. Dessert of strawberry/rhubarb crisp was good.

The atmosphere was also very disappointing. it felt like a cafeteria set in a lodge. The lighting was much too bright.

The only thing was the guy that played some kind of flute, the guitar and sang. He was nice and mellow and I could have listened to him for a week.

Seven of us dined here on New Year's Day, which was also my wife's birthday. Like other reviews, I agree that the fact there is no parking is a pain. We had to shuttle from the free parking at St. James. What really made me angry was the fact that we called before going to inquire if they had any vegetarian options for one group member and we were assured they did. I'm sorry but a bowl of soup and sides of mac and cheese don't count as vegetarian options.

That vented, the steaks were actually pretty good, however, the sides looked and tasted like they were frozen food services products. If I wanted Sysco food, I would have eaten at a chain restaurant and paid much less.

As for the atmosphere, the pictures depict a charming and romantic restaurant but it's not the case, in my opinion. It's a huge vaulted room with large beaten-up farm tables and starkly bright lighting. The room reminded me more of a ski resort lunch spot than a supposedly fine-dining restaurant.

Service was ok and our waiter was friendly. Pricing was about average for a resort...$42 for an 8oz fillet and a food services twice-baked potato. $30 for the pork chop and same potato.

I would never go back because of the vegetarian issue amongst others. We felt cheated that they actually charged us for my son's pathetic meal of main course sides! Save your money, there are far better options to be had in the area.

We had never experienced this restaurant in all of the years that we have been going to Beaver Creek. The reviews were high and I was looking for a wonderful place to enjoy dinner with my family. We went on a Thursday night and we were delighted with our meal and our experience. I would recommend this restaurant to all. Especially someone looking for a wonderful meal with a great atmosphere. We will definitely go back on our next visit to BC.

We had a 'date night' while out in Beaver Creek withour 3 kids between Christmas and New Years. We loved this restaurant and will definitely be back next time we are out there. The food was excellent, the atmosphere equally excellent and we left very happy! The only downfall is that there is no parking, but if you park in the St. James Place public lot and take the shuttle, it works out fine. Will definitely recommend this place to friends as they travel out there.

We had a large group and they were extremely accommodating. Food was great. Service was great. And the atmosphere is very nice. A living museum. All in all a great experience for the whole group.
