“An experience at Thunderhead”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Music, barbecue, and dancing at the top of the gondola. It's an experience that makes people who like that very happy, and you can't get it anywhere else. Pretty good food, very good musicians, OK atmosphere if you're inside; outside, you can look at the Yampa valley at night...worth a few bucks on its own!

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We had a lot of fun at the Western BBQ. The gondola ride to the restaurant was fun (the view would have been even better if it wasn't snowing so hard!). The buffet provided a good variety of tasty options. The band was a lot of fun, and taught the whole family some new dances. The food was a little speedy, but the entertainment was great!
