“Best deal on the mountain top”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Located in the heart of The Snowshoe Village your will find a quaint tavern. You can pop in for quick bite to eat, a beer, a glass of wine or a cocktail and not break the bank. Homemade soups, salads and sandwiches that warm and satisfy the hungry skiier.

Bonus...in the wintertime there is usually a snow pile just outside the tavern's door, in the center of the village square, where the kids can play while the adults can relax. Cheers!

Enjoyed the warm place to sit- hot food, and fair prices. Decent vegetarian fare- the chili, potato and salad were good. Decent Coffee.

“I dream of their smoked trout”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

The only thing that prevented me from checking in here all 3 days in a row that we ate here was that Snowshoe has no cell phone service and the wi-fi is spotty. The food here is delicious for any area, not just a ski resort, but when you throw in the fact that it sits atop Snowshoe mountain in the village, it's perfect. An excellent selection of brews, a full bar, hot apple cider and an excellent variety of food at reasonable prices. My favorites: The trout dip, the veggie burger and the asian shrimp wrap. In the summer they will break out the grill and make an excellent burger right on the patio. The service is always friendly and although the place is small, in the summer months you can spill out onto the patio and enjoy a game of corn hole while you wait for your food. This is my go to place at Snowshoe. They tend to sell out of items by the end of a 3 day holiday weekend, especially the trout dip, so get there early and try it first.
