Snowbird Restaurants & Bars

Snowbird Restaurants & Bars

For such a small village, surprisingly there are 15+ Snowbird restaurants and numerous lounges (ie bars). Snowbird dining varies from burgers to quality steaks and fine dining.

Snowbird Restaurants

The Aerie Restaurant located on the 10th floor of the Cliff Lodge has award-winning fine dining, an extensive wine list (it’s like an encylopaedia) and exceptional service. In addition to lots of sushi, the restaurant has some exquisite mains or you can just order a very affordable burger. This Snowbird restaurant is renowned for providing great views through enormous windows, but unfortunately we weren’t able to appreciate them during winter at dinner time – should have come for the buffet breakfast!

Also in the Cliff Lodge (level A) is another popular Snowbird restaurant, El Chanate, with mainly inexpensive Mexican fare. This restaurant and tequila bar doesn’t provide a great outlook unless you sit outside and let the tequilas warm you up!

The Steak Pit (Level 1, Snowbird Center) has steaks as well as seafood, and a few options for vegetarians. Don’t order appetizers because the meals are American-sized and they come with a massive salad, a side, and a yummy loaf of bread to start. This restaurant has a big wine list, including some manager’s suggestions if you want to charge your credit card to the max!! The Steak Pit has classic Snowbird retro décor with lots of cedar, black leather-look booths, fake plants in planters, and a beautiful illuminated garden outside. You might also get to see the resident porcupine!

The Wildflower in the Iron Blosam Lodge has reasonably priced Mediterranean meals. The Lodge at Snowbird also has a great dining option, The Lodge Bistro.

For morning fare head to The Atrium in the Cliff Lodge for coffee, pastries and breakfast. The atrium looks very striking.

Bars & Nightlife

The Tram Club on level 1 of the Snowbird Centre is a lively spot for après-ski and also for dancing later into the evening to live music or a DJ. Essentially it’s a sports bar, and has multiple large screen TVs and pool tables. The Utah liquor laws don’t seem to provide any restrictions on your après ski drinking fun here. You can order proper alcohol, order drinks over the bar, and you don’t have to eat food that you don’t really want just to get a drink! If you do want a feed, they serve up lots of fatty options – heart attack material! Or you might have a heart attack if you gaze at one of the waitresses too long. They dress up like it’s Hooters, with fishnet tights to boot!

The Aerie Lounge in the Cliff Lodge is great for an upscale après ski drink. The lounge can get rather vibrant at times!

More of a locals’ favourite for après is the Wildflower Lounge (Level 3, The Iron Blosam Lodge), which has a good happy hour bar menu.

Tequila connoisseurs (is there such a thing?) will love El Chanate Cantina (The Cliff Lodge, Level A), which is great for happy hour tacos, Utah microbrews and live music. They serve up a range of margaritas as well as wines, vodka, rum and other liquor.
