This was a great find. Although we were staying at The Deer Lodge Inn, this place offers decent food at a reasonable price. After a hard day on the slopes all you need is some freshly cooked but hearty food. We visited twice, breakfast and...More

We would have eaten here every night if we'd found it sooner. Great food and beer at reasonable prices. Note that parking can be tight in winter.

This is not “cuisine”. This is tasty, filling, inexpensive grub perfect for when you’ve skied all day in sub zero temps and are looking to refuel without breaking the bank.
