The view is to die for and the food is good too. Besides our waitress, there were other employees that helped take care of us.

Came up the mountain so my nieces could take ski and snow board lessons. Needed to refuel after and stopped here. So, so good. Great service, delicious large portions, reasonable prices and you can’t beat the view.
