It used to be a Swiss-themed restaurant, which was part of the attraction, but now it just serves okay basic American food, which is overpriced. Cafeteria-style. Great views from the deck.

A nice little restaurant at the top of the mountain. A very limited menu served cafeteria style. The views of the mountains are outstanding. The quality of the food could be better for the prices asked. I would recommend the pasteries as some of them are home made.

Used to stop here a lot a few years ago but stopped as they took away the cheese fondue from the menu and everything is so overpriced. It does have nice ambiance and it's perfect for just thawing out and/or using the restrooms.

Hot Chocolate, good food, great views. What's not to like? Perfect to take a quick hot chocolate break and warm up from Skiing. It's even better when you take a break and get some sun when spring skiing. Love this place.

Top notch food, best mac and cheese we have ever had. The pulled pork sandwich is to die for. The service staff is very friendly and always smiling no matter how long the line is.

The Schwendi continues to be our favorite ski lodge. The views are great on a clear day. The baked goods are very tasty. You must try the cinnamon bun. The entries are usually very good and much more interesting than standard ski lodge food. The down side of this lodge is that it is small so time your visits to... More

For lunch I had a breakfast "sandwich" at the warming hut - egg, bacon and cheese on a large English muffin - fresh cooked and a great snack! Considering all the food has to come up by chairlift or snow cat I think their prices are good!

...With freshly whipped cream is something I will never forget. The ambience makes men feel like I'm in a lodge in the alps, an experience you don't get anywhere else on the east coast. Only down side is it gets busy, be prepared to schlep downstairs as there's not many tables on the top floor. They give you a tray... More

This is the only place where we have meals or get drinks when skiing at Waterville Valley. We live here. The soup is great and the meals are a step above the usual fare at ski resorts. Good desserts too. I hope the folks that ran it last year return.
