The food was good. Beer selection sucked. They were closing before the end of the weekend and stock was extremely limited. Had a wonderful server, Jesse. Very professional & pleasant. We were very impressed with her to the point we asked her name the second time we went in even though we were not seated in her section.

We had a quick lunch here before hitting the road to head back home. They have lots of sandwich options and a few other things. The food was pretty good. Nothing extremely special but solid tasty things. The staff was helpful and friendly and the food came pretty quickly.

I ate there only at dinner, but would be good for lunch as well. All dinners and appetizers tried were very good.

For on the snow, this is probably reasonably priced. Most of the food could have been tasty but I only got to try a couple of appetisers. I was unwell and only wanted a little bit to eat. A kid's meal would have been ideal however I was an adult with no child and they would not let me order... More

We went to this restaurant twice last week. What we appreciated about it was that the menu offered something a little different. There are a number of dishes with Dutch Indonesian roots. They also serve the usual ski mountain food, but we really enjoyed the variety, and it was very tasty. We also enjoyed the ambience. There is a choice... More

Not bad but honestly our least favorite in Silver star. Prices also seemed a little higher than similar eateries in town. Service was fast and friendly and the atmosphere was okay. My Indonesian meal was not very good but the soup was tasty.

This was a family meal with young children. The atmosphere was good, quite noisy but that was expected. I ordered a draft local beer but it was quite flat and didn't taste as good as in other locations. The menu was somewhat interesting, service was fair but one of the adults chose the special and waited at least 5 minutes... More

For the third time we ordered a burger with no cheese (previous 2 visits both came woth cheese) on the 3rd visit we were told the burger was pre made and you could not get it without cheese. Coffee came very burnt. Service was fast and friendly. Live music and good atmosphere

The Bulldog is a boisterous place for a meal or drinks after a day on the slopes. The atmosphere is friendly with a bit of a Dutch flare. The Bulldog originated in Amsterdam. The owner spent a lot of time skiing at Silver Star and eventually bought the Putnam Station hotel when it was put on the market in the... More

After ordering drinks prior to our meal order being taken we were then advised numerous items on menu were not available, leaving a very limited supply. Ordered from limit menu and food was disappointing with several members of our party of 5 not eating there meal. Did not go back.
