Excellent food, beer and service. Ordered the pub chips which were great. Very family oriented would definitely recommend stopping in after a day on the slopes.

We had the grilled mediterranean chicken salad and the mixed grilled vegetarian pizza and both were delicious while enjoying spectacular views of the ski slopes.

After a long day of skiing, we sat down and were brought two complimentary mini hot chocolates! Too cute! Overall, fine food, nothing spectacular but my burger was very good. Nice for a meal on the slopes.

Two couples having a day off fro skiing went for lunch at the Brewhouse. Although the initial welcome and iced water etc was good, the food was a long time arriving, even though the restaurant was nowhere near full! Three of the meals were good even though the lettuce on my burger was wilted and past its best. My wife,... More

The food was average with a limited menu. Good for a quick bite to eat after a day on the slopes. They had a good selection of micro-brew options. Service was good. Excellent view of the slopes.

We stayed at the Tamarack so having the restaurant right there in the building was very convenient. We enjoyed the food and the prices were reasonable. Service was very good despite being very busy. No reservations but if you get there before 6:00 you can get in without waiting.

For dinner three of us each ordered different dishes, A vegetarian dish, a steak, and a lobster mac and cheese. All three were happy diners but my lobster mac and cheese was tasted by all and voted top choice. Later that evening we returned for desert. Recommend the butterscotch bread pudding with vanilla ice cream.

Great location after skiing all day but food was too salty or greasy. Very bad tasting. My whole family had a bad meal. Pizza was soggy and overloaded with cheese, my hamburger was too salty and so were the fries. The mac and cheese was horrible so my son did not eat it. The fish fry tasted of but you... More
