Dinner at the Game Creek Club is a very special experience. It starts with the ride on the gondola in the dark followed by the ride on the snowcat. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable, not to mention the wine list which is very good. We had the four course meal, for main we had vegetable dish,... More

This is a special experience from the start as you take the gondola, where you are given a blanket, and travel up the mountain to await your transport in a pistebasher/snowcat. The children and adults were all delighted from the start. The restaurant is in a delightful blading which is beautifully furnished and looks like a traditional wooden lodge. The... More

We had a great experience. During our ski holiday, my husband, my two children (9 and 7) and myself came here to eat. Night time trip in a gondola and then a snow cat certainly impressed the children. The pre-dinner cocktails were delicious. The lodge is very traditional American mountain style and well done. The food was basically a fixed... More

Our entire experience was wonderful. We rode the Eagle Bahn in Lionshead and then took a shuttle to the restaurant. We went early to enjoy cocktails on the deck before going inside to dine. This is a must as the views are breathtaking, especially at sunset. They have patio tables you can sit at and there are gorgeous flowers everywhere.... More

Buffet food is as good as it gets! I've dined here buffet-style on several occasions and never been disappointed. Menu service is exemplary.

Sunday brunch or dinner, this is a restaurant experience you must have when you are in Vail. It is a completely different experience whether you are going during the summer or the winter. Transportation is provided from the top of the gondola to the restaurant. During the summer it is a bus. Arrive early during the summer for cocktails on... More

Quite a trek to get to this restaurant, but once you get there it is the best views in the Valley. Our waiter was great, and the food was very good as well, would definitely return!!

Best view and the food was 5-star hotel food. The restaurant itself was very well built, it's just sooooo beautiful. We reserved for a brunch on the day we arrived at Vail. We had to push the reservation to an hour later because the traffic accident on 70 west. The restaurant staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything was perfect... More
