Thanks for the rec's. Since we will be there for 6 days do you mind listing the mediocre places? Don't really want mediocre.


The places I went to that I thought were so-so were Prime Steakhouse, 501 Main, and Bistro 412.

I think the Wednesday night free concerts in Deer Valley end the day you arrive. There is the Silly Market on Sundays on Main Street which has shopping and some music. There are lots of places to go hiking around Park City. One thing to do might be to take the chair lift up to the top of Sundance and hike down, stopping at Stewart Falls. Sundance is very scenic.
While you are there at Sundance you might want to eat dinner at the Tree Room and have drinks at the Owl Bar.

We really liked the dinner we had at Wahso, which is Asian influence, so I would recommend it. For moderate dining, we like both Café Terigo and Purple Sage. For bar food, Boneyard Saloon is pretty good.

I would not recommend Chimayo as I think it is overpriced for the quality and it is crowded in the restaurant.

Get the Park City Record newspaper when you get here, there are coupons for discounts and 2 for 1 dinners.

I will vouch for the mediocrity of Prime. I'm sure I've eaten at the other 2 but I can't remember!

I have always liked Grappa at the far end of Main Street. Never blew me away, but always solid Italian fare.
Best meal I ever had there was at a place that is now gone. Can't remember the name but it was upscale and very fancy in the middle of main street. Last time I was there (2 years ago) it wasn't.

High West Distillery is super lively and has a really good gourmet pub menu. Trouble is that their reservation policy is funky. Can't remember exactly how it works, but it involved putting your name in early in the day. At the very least it's worth stopping in for a drink, they distill their own whiskeys, and some very good ones at that.

Have fun!

High West is distilling, but I don't think the products, except for the silver whiskey and vodka are being sold yet due to time needed for aging the whiskey. They have been buying products from third parties and blending them.
I highly recommend a visit to the High West Distillery in Wanship (about 10-15 minutes east of Park City). The distillery, general store, and tasting room are open Wednesday-Sunday from 10-5. It is a beautiful facility located on the mountainside, just off of I-80. You can book a tour (about 30-40 minutes) and then enjoy a flight of various whiskeys, along with small plates, in the tasting room.

Haven't done that yet but need to soon.

How much are you willing to spend? You can spend bucks if you want in Park City or you can do modest and enjoy yourself.


Looking to do modest and have a good time. Going to pick up a newspaper and look for summer specials too.

Hasn't started out great since American lost our luggage and we didn't get into SLC until midnight.
If you are feeling particularly adventurous, both Olympic Park and Park City Mountain Resort have fantastic zip-lines.

If you are in the mood for casual, authentic, Mexican food, try Sergio's.

Wasatch Brew Pub is toward the top of Main Street; a relaxing atmosphere in which to sample some great craft beers or cocktails, and the American pub menu is solid.

Thanks Gigibit. Do you know anything about Bangkok Thai on Main. Looks like and interesting menu and 2 for 1 dinners now?

I've never been there, but I have heard very positive reviews from a couple of friends.

I know they have a solid wine list, too.

Dined there last night. Very solid list. The food and service were excellent. Highly recommended.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it! I hope the remainder of your visit is pleasurable and relaxing. Cheers!
We have had a great trip. Have been surprised by the wine and food scene in the area. Very BYOB friendly with some at $0 corkage (Wahso). Others in the $8-20 range. Definitely plan on returning in the winter. Thanks to everyone for their recommendations. Most have been spot on. Tonight we are trying Firewood. I'll let you know what the verdict is for this one.

Always liked Snake Creek Grill in Heber and Mariposa at Deer Valley.

Too bad Chez Betty closed. Had some fun meals there including a great one with Roentgen Ray years ago.


Snake Creek is one of our favorites. We had a good meal at Chez Betty, not sure why it closed.

Money trouble, too much rent, too much competition - if I recall
Finally returned home from a great trip to the Park City area. Here is a quick summary of our impressions:

Food scene is impressive. Firewood was the best meal as the food and service were excellent. The halibut served over sweet Utah corn was the best dish I had all week. Enjoyed Cafe Terigo for lunch (ate on patio) with a glass of Produttori Barberesco. Also had a nice bison burger for lunch one day at 501 Main. With the 2 for 1 specials we dined at Glitretind at the Stein Erikson lodge one evening. Beautiful setting on the deck and the food was good but not great. Excellent list but overpriced even for resort pricing. I BYO'ed (actually BYO'ed at all restaurants except Bangkok Thai where we did the tasting menu with wine pairing which was excellent) and they provided excellent service with great stemware. We enjoyed dining alfresco at Cena at Chateaux Deer Valley where the Bolognese and corn ravioli were excellent. As mentioned earlier, Bangkok Thai on Main is excellent. We did the wine pairings with our 5 courses and all were well thought out and were perfect compliments to the meal. They do have an excellent, fairly priced wine list as well. Dining on the balcony of Wahso was a treat. My wife had an excellent sea bass dish and the 2015 Vajra Riesling that I brought paired well with all the food. We had lunch one day at Red Iguana in SLC. Really good Mexican food and the cucumber margarita was delicious. Had breakfast at Harvest one day and highly recommend it.

I am sure Park City is a winter wonderland and the slopes looked very inviting. Summer is just as active. We zip lined, alpine coastered, bobsledded, hiked, explored and literally spent a week outdoors. Bridal Veil Falls and Sundance were highlights.

Thanks again for all the recommendations. One of the main reasons I continue to hang around on these boards is because of the people and the sharing of information-both wine and travel.

Like many Mountain resort towns, the local saying is we came for the winters and stayed for the summers
I really want to tell everybody that Park City sucks and don't come here. We have seen an increase in traffic and crowding, especially with parking. Vail buying Park City and the Canyons has increased visitors and I don't think that Park City is ready for the increase.

We really enjoy our summers in Park City and enjoy skiing here. It is a great place and has a lot to offer. I am just afraid it might not adjust well to its increased popularity.

I think everyone should keep going to Colorado and having a great time there. Wink
