The service was excellent and view is spectacular. The food was on par with any good restaurant, not amazing or unique. Not worth the price in my opinion.

They went above and beyond to accomadate our big group and I am so glad they did. The food was amazing and so were the views. This was a once in a lifetime experience that I hope I get to experience again.

Should have been unforgettable by the hype but was really very average. Starter soup was warm only, Quail was awful. Main beef average and had only 2 bottles of raise in stock !!! This was $250 dollars a head ...... not worth it ...

Fantastic experience starting with Eagle Bahn Gondola ride, into a waiting Snow Cat, to arriving at Game Creek Club. Book before sunset, then be sure to go out on deck to get some pictures. Excellent food, service, presentation and wine list.

You can hike in summer or go by 4 wheel drive shuttle. It is quite a long distance at the back of the mountain, and if reasonably fit, should take 2.5 to 3 hours. Hiking would not be advised in winter and guests to the... More
