Do not miss eating at the Hellroaring Saloon, right at the mountain base area .... great food, great prices, and super people. We took a large group in there (24), and the service was superb. We were all served at the same time; food was hot; and servers were willing to do separate checks. Awesome experience. We ordered right off the menu, and there was not one complaint about any of the food. I have organized many of these group dinners, and this was the easiest. The managers are great to work with. Most of us went back many times during our week long stay both for lunch and dinner. Fun friendly atmosphere .... wide range of food selections available and each dish is prepared so well. We sampled everything from the chicken (blackened, perfect seasoning) to the pork shank (huge portion!) to several specials. Highly recommended.
If you are looking for a different, more upscale (and pricey) experience, try Latitude 48. Went there with a group of four. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Good food ... duck was superb as was the Mediterranean plate appetizer. Rotisserie rosemary chicken melted in your mouth. Home made pizza was thin crust, a nice light dish. We sent others there who reported the same good experience. Extensive wine list. Check it out for sure.
