Let me start off by saying the food is good. For us however couldn't get pass the worst host/hostess I think I have ever met and lack of managers attention to the matter. We were with a group for spring break(3 families total of 11 people) and was our first night of our vacation arrival. Waited over an hour to... More

We actually ate here twice in one week... Lunch, slope side between runs, and then dinner one night because we were too tiered to head down into town to eat. Both experiences this trip (and the several others in years past) were great! It's elevated "Pub Grub" with a fun mountain atmosphere. Like I said, Yummmmmmmmmmmmm!

Airy sports bar & grill with high ceilings & a deck overlooking the ski lift, plus an American menu. Good food, good service and decent prices for a ski base restaurant.

We wanted an easy, lighter dinner with another family couple. Picked the right place for the 4 of us. Service was very good, the restaurant wasn't too busy and we were early enough. Menu had variety to suit anyone. Soup, a chowder was raved about. Simple house salad was fine. I enjoyed a delicious burger.Of course, my husband had some... More

Kids approved the grilled cheese, pasta with red sauce. For the adults The burger with avocado was tasty and the margaritas were good. It provides a nice variety of food and daily specials on the chalk board.

The quality of food was at best average, although my 14 year old loved the turkey melt. The service was good not great. We did eat there twice because this... More

Family of five dined here for early dinner. It was fantastic: veggie fajitas were delicious. My son had king crab legs here and loved them. Moscow mule was good but wish it would have been in a copper mug. Our service was OUTSTANDING!

We love Avalanche. They consistently offer great service and delicious food. The prices are reasonable too which is a nice change from other mountain options. And no joke the chicken pot pie is so tasty!
