We took our nephew and our dog to Crystal Mountain and were thrilled we could take our dog with us on the gondola to the top! The restaurant is at the top with fabulous views of Rainier. It reminds me a bit of a German...More

Be sure to request a table on the patio so you can take in the amazing view, which is probably the best part of the meal. If you like French fries, you love the dishes. The fries may even be better than McDonald's. The fish...More
