Very friendly place, good food and local draft beers. You can sit near the fireplace or at the fire bar if you are cold from skiing. Right at the base of the slopes. Enjoy!

Great to hop in after skiing. The nachos and sweet potato waffle fries were awesome! Great atmosphere! Reasonable prices. Better service and possibly even better food than 9380.

Was a bit surprised by how good the food was to be honest. Super busy place in the evenings, but good service and not your typical bar food. Good place for drinks and a laid back meal.

We ordered takeout one evening to eat in our home. The crust was crisp but heavy, the meat pizza was greasy and the white pizza had huge clumps of garlic (bottled) all over it! We will look for another pizza location the next time we...More
