“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Now I know a LOT of Americans are going to disagree with this comment, however most of the restaurants in Park City are average at best, and some just not very good at all.

However the 'High West' is worth a visit - reasonable prices, good food and plenty of choices as far as drinks are concerned.

Well located too - it's easy to get to and from as the free buses go right past.

Dear Hueyoz...

Thanks for the shout out from Australia regarding our food, cocktail selection and value! We appreciate the love and you taking the time to post a review. Keep an eye out for our whiskey "Down Under" as we just entered that market this past summer.

Cheers!

“Fun drinks and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

The one problem with High West is the two hour wait. In prime time it is hard to get in. The whiskey drinks are fun. I enjoyed Dead Man's Boots. The food was very good. It is a fun place.

Thank you for sticking around and enduring the wait. It can get lengthy during the busy months in winter and we appreciate your patience. We also appreciate you taking a few moments to share your 5 star experience once you got in. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Park City as well and look forward to serving you again on your next visit from Florida.

Cheers...

“Great Drinks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

We went to the distillery for lunch and it was delicious and the atmosphere was fun! The drink specials were so yummy. I got the Dead Mans boot which had Whiskey and tequila in it with lime and simple syrup. My friend ordered the Peach mule which had their very own peach vodka, muled fresh ginger, mint and ginger beer in it. I loved it so much I took home a bottle of peach Vodka. After we ate we went on a tour of the distillery and learned so much about whiskey. I'm not a whiskey drinker, but after this tour I just might start. Good time!

Dear 5 Reilly's...

Thanks for stopping by for lunch and a few High West cocktails! Additionally, thanks for taking advantage of our free daily whiskey tours as we love educating folks about whiskey and what we do here in Park CIty. Perhaps you will become a whiskey drinker and come back and visit us to learn a bit more about High West and our hand crafted spirits!

Cheers and thanks for posting a review.

“Great Spirits, Ok food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

We couldn't wait to return to High West when we finally got back to Park City. On our first try the entire restaurant was closed for a private event. The next evening we went the Saloon was closed for a private event. We finally made it in for an apres ski meal and honestly, we were disappointed in the food. It was really just upscale bar food, not as good as we remember it for years past. My husband loves the rye and I'm a huge fan of their vodka, so we weren't disappointed by that at all. But let's be honest, in the state of "measured pours" there really isn't all that much difference in cocktails from bar to bar. If you haven't been here, it is worth the trip, but not necessarily worth the wait. Go early. The Saloon is probably our favorite part of the whole restaurant so the next time we will do small plates at the bar, some good drinks and call it a night. We won't waste our time waiting for a table in the dining room.

Dear ZLulu...

As we are always looking for feedback from guests, we appreciate yours and the detail you provide. As we are a whiskey distillery first and foremost, we're thankful for your passion towards our product . We strive to meet the quality in the bottle on the plate at the Saloon and will continue to pursue 5 star excellence with our food. As just a brief point of reference, we do believe there is a difference in cocktails from bar to bar. After law changes a few years back, we decided to pour all of our drinks with a 1.5oz pour up from the standard 1oz. Many of our cocktails have 2.5oz of spirit, the state maximum, as long as there are differing spirits. Lastly, we make all of our inclusions from scratch and use only the highest quality sodas and nothing out of a gun.

Whether it be at the bar enjoying small plates or in the dining room, we hope you'll come back on your next trip from Indiana to enjoy a 5 star High West experience both whiskey wise and food wise.

Cheers and thanks again for your feedback.

Sincerely...

Ted Russell

“Fun and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

This was a return visit to the restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Great selection of cocktails and food. Food is interesting and well presented. I had a green apple, goat cheese salad that was delicious and refreshing.the gruyere French onion soup was decadent and wonderful. Husband had the bison/beef burger and raved about it as well. I don't think you can go wrong. Also the staff is friendly and very informative about the different whiskeys and other drinks.
