Tamarack Lodge's Lakefront restaurant features a main dining area with ten tables, as well as picturesque views of the Twin Lakes nearby. Have a cup of the cider, made in-house, or other seasonal beverages such as hot mulled wine.
This modern spin on the classic grill features a menu of gourmet dishes ranging from artisanal pizza to Wild Boar lasagna. Grill & Vine prides itself on using local ingredients, and offers an exclusively farm-to-table "Simply Grilled" selection of menu items.
This multi-million-dollar lodge features a 180-seat dining area and a 30-seat bar, as well as an outdoor deck and BBQ grill. There are indoor and outdoor fireplaces here too, so you'll never be too cold despite the snow all around you.
The only place to find Bob's Clam Hut has traditionally been in Kittery. That's no longer the case, though, as Bob's has opened up a new Sugarloaf location, to the amazement and happiness of skiers and snowboarders alike.
This resto plates a combination of European and New American cuisine, and has played host to the World Cup Ski Races since 1997. It's only open in the winter, though, so factor that into your trip plans.
What was once just an apres ski bar has been renovated to incorporate a full restaurant on the premises. Try one of the specialty cocktails, like the Bacon Bloody Mary.
This Vail resto plates authentic Mexican grub alongside an extensive drinks menu. Try one of the 30+ tequilas on offer, either as a margarita, poloma, or three-shot sampler.
