We stayed at the resort and went here for dinner because it was convenient. The food was average at best. I ordered a kale salad and most of the salad was not kale (shaved Brussels sprouts, lettuce). The chicken Florentine should be avoided. My husband...More

The service was superb, and the appetizers were scrumptious, but they no longer offer that delicious coleslaw that used to be a staple. Plus, the Summit sandwich was somewhere down in the valley; it was not good at all.

PapaCharlie's has another beautiful view on the North Shore! But....they are really missing the boat with their food! Quite not what you would expect for a restaurant/bar that can draw crowds for any season! The bar does have a fabulous bartender named Gary. He provides...More

Great food, views and service! Gary is our favorite, we ask for him every year, very funny, kind and hard working! Loved the potato shredders and the pulled pork sandwich. Couldn't think of a better place for a cold beer over looking the mountains!
