If you don't feel like going to the regular ski lodge for lunch this is a great alternative..indoor seating feels like your in Austria. Small menu but authentic food!

Probably a bit too authentic for my style, but a very unique dining experience. Beer was very good and food was pretty good as well. It definitely doesn't feel like you are at a restaurant at a ski area in the United States.

This restaurant is somewhat hard to drive to unless you have 4 wheel drive, but they will provide transportation from the base of the mountain to the restaurant. The food was delicious and authentic. We just ate too much.

Stopped for lunch with a DoubleBock Beer and had a very fine Bavarian meal. With the beer and altitude, we made our last run of the day back to the lodge.

The weather is unseasonably warm during this late winter and will only get better as spring approaches. The Bavarian has a large, sunny deck with bar service and dining. Be aware that it can get crowded and the service can be slow during sunny days....More

I believe they open at 5:30 pm on Sundays not sure what time they close. On the Shuttle I would call them to find out, I think they will pick you up at the Airport if you are staying there but don't think they will pick you... More
