My family and I drove 5 1/2 hours to the high peaks resort -with our 2 older boys and our 6 month baby girl only to be STARVING and tired, and ready for a great dinner and dining experience.

This good food standby is good for decent meals even though it is not outstanding. At times it is enough just to know there is a consistant, convenient place for a sandwich or a burger and a bunch of TVs to see whatever the game is. It also sits in the middle of lots of places to park so that... More

Lovely service like the rest of the High Peaks hotel. As far as service, this entire resort is awesome. But the food appears inconsistent. When I was here at Christmas, I had the braised beef rib. It was delish , but when I brought my friends this time in March and recommended the same dish, it was dry with almost... More

Great place to have a cold drink and some good food. The lunch items I have ordered here have always been very good and it's a great place to watch a sporting event with the locals. Tony behind the bar is always friendly and makes sure we have everything we need. The staff is also very accommodating and friendly, and... More

Food was average ... and priced at resort levels. Found it interesting that tables are set with bread plates but no bread or rolls come with dinners. Convenient if staying at High Peaks Resort but would try other places.
