The JVI is the best restaurant in the area. Best food, best bar, best staff and awesome owners. We try to hang out for drinks and enjoy the apres ski vibe every weekend in the winter. It is the place to go after a day on the slopes or riding snowmobiles. Holly makes a mean mule and huge margarita. Great... More

Great meal, great people, great atmosphere! Large portions, salads are like family style sizes. Bread served with meals is delicious, hot and served with oil and balsamic vinegar- yum! Best margarita on the east coast!!

Just a short drive down the mountain you'll find friendly service, great food, and high quality steaks cooked to order. We also ordered the Buffalo Chicken Pizza - totally packed with flavor. Good to know: it's thick crust style. Great for kids and parties large and small.

Arrived 15 minutes late to a half full restaurant and instead of a welcome hostess cynical opening remarks were "you're late". Seated immediately drink order came about 15 minutes in, appetizer came one hour in. Server was clueless. Forgot to bring specials menu, forgot bread, forgot salads, forgot to replenish cutlery and was completely disengaged throughout the evening. Dinner took... More

Any additional details you can provide would be greatly appreciated (date/time, etc). We pride ourselves on impeccable service and would like to address the issue. If you return to the area we will make things right. Thank you... More
