Excellent food, good service. Fun dinner to end a great day for us after snowshoeing! For a large group: Ask the wait staff to separate your bill at the time that you order. Order desserts and share! Love the chocolate fondue!! The Blonde Bear Tavern. Taos Ski Valley, NM.

We go to TSV each year and eat at least 2x at the Blonde Bear. The food is amazing and the staff is top notch!

Delicious apres ski food and one of the best manhattans I've ever had! Be sure and ask for the special cherries! Best apres ski place in Taos ski valley hands down. Super classy and noise level appropriate, not too loud.

My wife and I had dinner with another couple on a Tuesday evening. Great place for a couples dinner and also for families. Low key atmosphere, fine dining, the pork chop was awesome! Great food and drink! Great service.

The bartender and wait staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Food and beverages are pricey, but this is a destination so there aren't many options. Billiards and Foosball in the back where we...

The service was very good; the wine list extensive; our meals were generally ok. We've eaten here during a prior ski trip, and our first experience was certainly better than the most recent. My wife and I were impressed by the attentive and friendly service, but we weren't all that enamored by the meals. It's a peculiar place in that... More
