“Not a viable option.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This restaurant, located beyond reasonable walking distance from the village in winter, tries and fails to host an upscale dining experience. Although the menu offerings and price point reflect what should be a higher standard of fare, service and the kitchen were disappointing.

Service staff was not well trained for this level of dining. This lack of professionalism permeated the entire experience. Entrees were mediocre although creative in intent; portions in some cases clearly not adequate (quail and scallops), presentation uninspiring, and taste lacking uniformly across our table of four. The two beef entrees (NY and filet) were accompanied by perhaps the worst rendition of a baked potato I have ever experienced in any setting along with three emaciated grilled asparagus stocks.

Mitigating, we were “early week” customers and perhaps because of personnel rotation after a busy weekend it may have been an “off night.” That being said, at this price point one should expect consistency regardless of timing.

I would urge caution in expecting anything but the most ordinary experience at a relatively significant cost.

“Nice atmosphere!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had appetizers here on New Year's Eve and dinner a few nights later. Both times the food was great. Atmosphere is awesome for the area. More upscale than the other eateries at Snowshoe. Excellnt lemon drop martini. Prices are high, but typical to what you would pay at a nicer restaurant.

“Overpriced food with service on par with that of a Dennys”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We arrived to the mountain after 7pm and wanted something to eat. We were limited on options due to the time and because of proximity this was our choice. They did not have a menu posted anywhere so we were surprised when we opened them after being seated. Not to mention we had to walk to the bar and asked to be seated after waiting at the hostess stand for awhile. The hostess was too busy "helping" the bar staff who aparently couldn't handle the 4 people sitting there on their own. Expext to pay nothing less than $12 which is a "grilled caesar salad" (lettuce was grilled, no protein on the salad). Main entrees were $25-40. Our server secifically was great and knowledgeable and was attentive to our table. But that was about it as far as good remarks go. Overall the experience left us feeling cheated out of the money we paid and it was NOT a pleasent start to our vacation. I can see this being a nice place for a romatic or nice dinner if you are maybe one of two parties dining.
