“Expensive yet average food, but you pay for the views”

$20 burgers and sandwiches that are just OK and service was not great. I swear our server must have eaten some "edibles" before clocking in for his shift. However, Sam's is at the top of the mountain and the views are phenomenal. Worth having lunch at once during your ski trip.

This tratoria-style restaurant is a touch of class in the clouds. After a hard morning skiing, it's nice not to have to fight through cafeteria lines. The Smokehouse Burger and the caesar with Salmon are serviceable, if unspectacular, options. On a nice day it's got a great view, but we didn't get to see it because of the snow all around us.

The food was great but the service was what singled this place out as a must visit. Matt Gifford made the experience over the top. This guy sets the standard by far.

This place is on top of a mountain where village express lift ends.
Nice looking restaurant with Alpine decoration. High ceiling gives you a spacious feeling. you can see the Snowmass mountain peak from the high windows. Superb panoramic view.
Our meal were tasty and the presentation of the plates were elegant.
Pricey place, however you can get the real meaning of barbeque. Crowded on weekends with a long waiting list.
Definitely suggested.

Same old menu, overpriced for what was available, however the food was of good quality. By the time you add a "service charge", a 20% tip, and tax, that's half the check. The service was very ordinary; we arrived early at 11:45 and asked to be seated in the near empty restaurant , but were delayed for some time by one of the staff for no apparent reason, despite a policy of no reservations and empty tables everywhere. Not good enough.
