Their menu is eclectic with everything from upscale comfort food to Asian fusion! The menu has something for every type of palate including an impressive selection of cocktails and mocktails.
The interior is modern and chic with my personal favorite feature – a large open kitchen. The owner, Brooks Kirchheimer, has created a one-of-a-kind place that’s a must visit for anyone visiting Park City.
WHAT TO ORDER: Start with one of the cocktails from their impressive cocktail menu! My personal favorite was the “Painkiller” cocktail made with white rum, aged rum, pineapple, orange, and coconut. If you’re a sushi lover, their Hawaiian Ahi Poke Bowl was really fresh and flavorful! Save room for dessert because their cookie skillet is the perfect way to curb a sweet tooth!

Would you believe me if I told you one of the best lobster rolls I’ve had is in Park City, Utah! A husband and wife Team who grew up in New England opened Freshies Lobster Co. in 2009, and it quickly became a Park City favorite!
The secret to Freshies success is their focus on sustainability and freshness. They have a promise of “from shore to door in 24”. Freshies gets their lobster fresh from Maine, and it’s shipped and delivered to the restaurant in under 24 hours for maximum freshness and flavor.
WHAT TO ORDER: You can’t come to Freshies without trying their classic fresh Maine lobster roll! Fresh lobster is filled in a toasted New England hot dog bun brushed with butter topped with seasoning – YUM! If you’re looking to warm up, their lobster bisque or clam chowder soup is fantastic!

The restaurant has a modern counter service. Freshies’ relaxed and casual atmosphere makes for the perfect lunch spot! Click here for location details.
A local secret that’s becoming one of the newest hot spots in Park City. Versante Hearth + Bar is where you go to find the best wood-fired pizza and friendly service.
Located in the Park City Peaks Hotel, Versante Hearth + Bar has elevated hotel restaurants to the next level. The portions are generous (aka perfect for leftovers!) and the wood-fired pizza oven guarantees you only the best tasting pizzas!
WHAT TO ORDER: The appetizers at Versante Hearth + Bar are not to be missed! Their spinach and artichoke dip, is hands down the best spinach and artichoke dip I’ve ever had! The brussels sprouts are perfectly crispy and so flavorful with a bacon white truffle honey glaze. For pizzas, I recommend the Old Town or the Spiro. If you’re gluten free, they have a gluten free and dairy free cauliflower crust.
Breakfast in Park City
Salt Box $$
If you’re craving a hearty breakfast before hitting the slopes, you need to visit Salt Box. The same team behind a Park City restaurant icon, Riverhorse on Main, opened Salt Box.
If you’re in a hurry grab a bite from their delicious pre-made meals, or sit down and enjoy a coffee and hot breakfast. If you need to feed a big group, Salt Box also offers catering and family pack meals.
WHAT TO ORDER: Coffee drinkers will love the the cardamom latte at Salt Box! Their espresso beans come from Millcreek Coffee, a local family-run coffee shop that roast their own beans. There’s nothing better than a hearty breakfast sandwich! The Salt Box Egg Sando on toasted ciabatta bread with peppered bacon, honey baked ham, scrambled eggs, and honey sriracha cream cheese was fantastic!
PRACTICAL INFO: Salt Box is located in Prospector Square (right across from Freshies!) and plenty of parking available. They’re open for breakfast and lunch. You can find more information on their catering here.
The perfect restaurant for fantastic coffee and breakfast in Park City! Five5eeds was started by an Australian family. They make everything from scratch – with only the freshest ingredients. Their freshly roasted coffee beans are even flown in from Melbourne!

Local musicians play a broad collection of music in the background that adds to the atmosphere. Riverhorse on Main has been praised by restaurant critics as one of North America’s top culinary destinations, and considered a Park City culinary gem.
WHAT TO ORDER: Order the restaurant’s signature dish – the macadamia-nut-crusted Alaskan halibut.

Anything you order at Riverhorse will be delicious.
PRACTICAL INFO: Riverhorse on Main does not have a strict dress code. The vibe is casual, but the service upscale – the perfect balance for a ski town. Reservations are strongly recommended, and during ski season typically book up around 45 days in advance. You can make reservations on Resy here.
Southwestern dishes with a cozy atmosphere complete with a wood burning fireplace. After a long day of skiing, nothing tastes better than Chimayo’s famous queso fundido made with hot melted cheese and spicy chorizo that’s served flambé.
The atmosphere transports you to the village of Chimayo, New Mexico (where the restaurant gets its name from!). Beautiful lighting, wrought iron detail, Southwestern throw pillows in each booth and an authentic Mexican tile floor create this fabulous atmosphere.
WHAT TO ORDER: Don’t miss their margaritas, queso fundido, and their signature dish – spareribs! The spare ribs at Chimayo taste just as good as they look. Drizzled in chipotle bbq glaze topped with an onion ring and mashed potatoes -the perfect size for two to share!
Fireside Dining $$$
If you’re a cheese and chocolate lover – this is the place for you! Fireside Dining is one of the most unique restaurants in Park City.
Located at the Montage Hotel in Deer Valley, Fireside Dining serves their four-course dinner from four different large stone fireplaces! Each of these fireplaces serve a different course.
Fireside Dining’s signature course is Swiss raclette cheese that melts on your plate from the heat of the fire!

Best Restaurants in Park City with a View
The Viking Yurt $$$$
The ultimate dining experience in Park City (where getting there is part of the adventure) is the Viking Yurt! You’ll dine right on the slopes of Park City Mountain with unbelievable views of Park City and the mountains.
Your adventure begins with a 23-minute sleigh ride up 1,800 feet to the top of the mountain. Warm blankets are provided for guests who sit in the sleigh, and for parties of two – you have the option of sitting in the heated cab.
The yurt is beautifully decorated on the inside with a wood burning fireplace to keep you nice and toasty. The husband-and-wife team who started the Viking Yurt took inspiration for the design of the yurt and menu from their travels to Norway. During the dinner, you’ll have the chance to try on authentic Viking helmets they purchased during their trip to Norway. Throughout your dinner, you’ll find little tributes to Norway – I won’t spoil all the surprises!
During your meal, a pianist will play on a baby grand piano – that’s right – the yurt even has a piano!
What to Eat: The dinner is six-courses that includes lobster and salmon bisque, braised ribs, and of course hot gløgg. You can view the full six-course menu here. A full bar is available too!
Practical Information: For more information, and to make your reservation, you can book on the Viking Yurt website here. It’s open December – March for dinner. The Viking Yurt only accepts parties of 2,4, and 6.
Stein Alpenglobes $$$$
Alpenglobes are the ultimate winter wonderland dining experience! Dine inside your own private heated globe that will have you feeling like you’re in your own snow globe!
The best restaurant in Park City to dine in an Alpenglobe is at the Stein Eriksen Lodge at Deer Valley. This European-inspired lodge is named after the Olympic legend, Stein Eriksen, and you’ll see tributes to his Norwegian heritage around the property.
The best part of dining at the Stein Eriksen are the incredible panoramic views of Deer Valley Resort. During dinner, you’re so close to the mountains you can even watch the runs being groomed!
What to Order: Guests who dine in the Alpenglobes at the Stein order from the same menu that’s at the Troll Hallen Lounge. I highly recommend the French onion soup, Swedish meatballs, and oatmeal cookie sundae. The Swedish meatballs would be my top choice!
Practical Information: Reservations are $200 for a 90-minute breakfast or lunch, and $250 for a 90-minute dinner meal period. Reservations can only be made by calling (435) 645-6455.
The St. Regis Bar – Deer Valley $$$
If you’re looking for the best après ski scene with gorgeous views, there’s no better place than the St. Regis at Deer Valley. Guests start by taking a funicular to the resort with stunning views of Deer Valley.
I recommend having a drink outside at their bar under the outdoor heaters to see the skiers fly down the slopes!
What to Sip and Snack: Every St.Regis around the world is known for their signature bloody mary! All St. Regis resorts have their unique take on their bloody mary. The bloody mary at this St. Regis Park City includes local oat-distilled Vodka 7000, a house-made bloody mary mix with wasabi-celery foam. If you’re a cheese lover, snack on their cheese board with local cheese from Utah!
Practical Information: Valet is available at the St. Regis Park City. They do not take reservations for their bar area outside.
Après-Ski Hotspots in Park City
The après-ski scene is part of what makes Park City one of the best ski towns in the United States. From casual to luxury, there’s an après-ski scene for any style in Park City. The list below are a few of my favorites!
Iconic Park City Après-Ski Spots
The world’s first (and only!) ski in and ski out distillery! Located on Main Street, High West Saloon is right at the end of the “Quittin’ Time” ski run.
High West is very popular, but unfortunately they don’t take reservations. Try and be strategic about when you visit to avoid the rush of skiers when the lifts close at 4:00 p.m.
WHAT TO SIP: The Alta Ruby cocktail is so light and refreshing! If you’re a whiskey drinker, you’ll have endless selections to choose from!
No Name Saloon is a piece of history in Park City! Located in the heart of Main Street, this building used to be where the local phone company operated out of years ago!
The walls are decorated with all sorts of paraphernalia from the old local rugby team, taxidermy, and even old sleds. My favorite place to sit here is by the wood-burning fireplace right as you walk in, or the heated rooftop patio!
WHAT TO SIP: Go for one of their impressive selection of craft beers and whiskeys! Or, an Irish coffee – if you’re anything like me when I’m skiing!
Luxury Park City Après-Ski
It doesn’t get more luxurious than the Après Lounge at the Montage Hotel in Deer Valley serving up bottles of Veuve Clicquot. The bright orange yurt is impossible to miss. The interior is chic, with oversize leather and flannel-upholstered armchairs and hardwood floors. You won’t find another yurt as glamorous.
PRACTICAL INFO: The Après Lounge is open during winter from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. everyday. It’s located in Empire Village, directly behind the Montage Resort.
WHAT TO SIP: A glass of Veuve, of course!
The St.Regis name is known worldwide for their 5-star luxury hotels. It’s no surprise that the St.Regis at Deer Valley is one of the best places to stay in Park City.
The St. Regis Bar has fantastic views of the mountains! During winter, you can watch the skiers race down the mountain. If you’re there at 5:30 p.m. don’t miss the champagne sabering – a St. Regis tradition at every property!
WHAT TO SIP: Their signature house-made bloody mary made using local oat-distilled Vodka 7000, a house-made bloody mary mix with wasabi-celery foam!
Causal Park City Après-Ski Bars
This no-frills bar on Main Street has vintage décor reminiscent of the rustic hunting cabins you found in Park City years ago! It’s the type of bar where you can make new friends, or swap stories with family!
WHAT TO SIP: The Cabin has classically-crafted cocktails made using simple, yet high-quality ingredients. If you’re a beer drinker, they offer a range of signature draft beers brewed locally for The Cabin.
This massive outdoor bar is right at the base of Canyons Village. As a quick reminder, when skiing at Park City Mountain, you have access to Park City Resort and the Canyons Resort.
I love the Umbrella Bar for their massive outdoor patio. If you’re looking to grab a drink right after skiing, this is the perfect place!
WHAT TO SIP: After skiing, you can’t go wrong with a hot Irish coffee!
Park City FAQ

Do restaurants in Park City have a strict dress code?
No! One of the reasons I love dining out in Park City is because the city adopts a casual atmosphere that you’ll find in most ski towns. You’ll see most locals and guests wear sweaters, jeans, and snow boots. During winter, I recommend investing in a good pair of nice après ski boots. For women, I love wearing sweater dresses and these sheer tights with a hidden fleece lining at dinner.
How important are restaurant reservations in Park City?
During ski season restaurant reservations in Park City are essential. If you’re visiting during the Sundance Film Festival (at the end of January), reservations fill up even faster and most restaurants are booked out for private events. When looking at the popularity of restaurants in this guide, reservations at the The Viking Yurt, Riverhorse on Main, Fireside Dining, and Chimayo fill up the fastest.
Does Park City have Uber/Lyft?
Yes, Uber and Lyft are available in Park City! During ski season they impose a small additional fee for ski season.
Should I rent a 4WD vehicle during winter in Park City?
Yes, I would recommend a 4WD in Park City if you plan on visiting Deer Valley, or any of the restaurants in the mountains. From Salt Lake City ,Park City is a quick 35 minute drive on 1-80. During the winter season, keep in mind that it’s possible chains or a 4WD could be required to drive up to Deer Valley because it’s in the mountains.
