“Great Fish Fry”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Nice view of the mountain. Fish is one of the best in town. It gets a little noisy and the wait can be long on a Friday night, but worth the wait.

Really like Carmelo's for the lasagna. Classic supper club with good service. Basic Italian food, consistently good.

“Nice atmosphere and view”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

A quick drive from the hotel strip to this pleasant restaurant that has a great view of Rib Mountain. Food was very good. Sauce on the alfredo side dish was a little bland, but the pork was excellent.

“Busy place but good food and casual atmosphere”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Full service bar, base of the hill at Granite Peak just outside the parking lot. Paid just as much for dinner with drinks here as we did for lunch with drinks at the ski hill and the food was MUCH better! Casual atmosphere, lots of locals, friendly staff and good food. Perfect for a low key night out of just dinner and drinks. Very family friendly. Good service. No complaints.
