Description: Windy Ridge Cafe is a wonderfully convenient alternative to the Main Street dining scene. Fresh ingredients, homemade soups and fast service define this wonderful eatery. Rustic wood furniture adds to the warmth of Windy Ridge. At lunch, locals go nuts for the Turkey Swiss Avocado Sandwich as well as the Classic Reuben Sandwich. After an exhilarating day of winter sports, or people watching on Main Street, relax in an unpretentious setting for dinner. Enjoy specials like Utah Red Trout that is crusted with almonds and herbs or Traditional Meatloaf, smothered with mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes.

“Great Bloody Mary...awesome pastries”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The bloody mary is so good. It's like drinking a salad with a kick. The baked goods are perfection. The Windy Ridge bakery in the back is responsible for the baked goods and also worth a stop for some pie, croissants, lemon bars, or any number of delicious baked goods.

“Eat like the Locals”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Windy Ridge is part of a restaurant group that includes some of the best in Park City, but the locals are smart enough to eat here instead. Great steaks and seafood, or "homey" food like meat loaf and roasted chicken, are all excellent. Not so large that it is noisy, nor so small that you can't feel comfortable with family of all ages. We usually eat here once per ski trip, and our friends that live here choose it consistently.

“We'll be back”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

A very pleasant dinner. A nice change from most of the Park City offerings, as it is a moderate priced, low key restaurant with creative dishes, very well executed.The red trout was delicious, as was the Mediterranean farfalle. The menu, although not very large, was very diverse. Windy Ridge is also a bakery, and all the bread and desserts are very good. Service could have been better.

“New for me!!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I had heard about this for YEARS as I am a local. Actually met friends for lunch one day and then took friends out there for dinner the next night. Had a full menu and great options for food. Service was local and fun. Can't wait to go by when the bakery is open.

“Won't forget”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Just last week we were on a family vacation to Park City. We were a party of 13. Windy Ridge had been recommended, and we decided to visit. I ordered the trout with almonds and was really impressed with the quality and flavor. Wow, it was really good, best I have ever had.
