I stopped for lunch on a sunny day, and sat outside on the deck. I changed tables once to escape the chilly breeze, and found that tables next to the building are the most sheltered. I had their potato-leek soup with barley and bacon, and...More

Fondue night was excellent! We had the cheese fondue that came with a large, very tasty salad and we a berry tort desert. Beers were extra, but the draft lager and hefeweizen were both fresh - they have a decent wine selection also. The fondue...More

We took out-of-town guests to The Bavarian for a summer lunch. The deck was only partially set up. With all the outside available tables filled we were forced to eat inside despite the beautiful afternoon weather. Food was adequate, but the service was VERY slow....More

After a lovely hike down from the top of the ski lift, be sure to treat yourself to a wonderful pretzel--which was crispy and salty on the outside and warm on the inside. I'm not sure about the rest of the menu, since we had...More
