Park City Restaurants: 15 Top Picks from a Local (2019)

We love Park City. There is something so magical about the majestic ski slopes paired with historic Main Street, the buzz of the Sundance Film Festival each winter, and the inevitable conglomeration of restaurants to choose from. With Park City being one of Utah’s hottest spots for travel, it takes the time and knowledge of a native to sort out the tourist traps from the local gems.

Let’s face it- Park City restaurants are more spendy than anything most foodies are accustomed to down in Salt Lake City. For that reason alone, this post is dedicated to the best restaurants in Park City- restaurants that are worth your time and hard earned money. We’ve done all the research and provided 15 total recommendations with a handful in each category of affordable, mid-range, and fine dining options. Our hope is that next time you find yourself headed to the mountains with friends or family, there’ll be incredible food to accompany those memories. Please note that contrary to our usual posts, these restaurants are listed in no particular order. This post has been updated several times since its original publish date.

AFFORDABLE PARK CITY RESTAURANTS (Under $30)

A list of 5 best restaurants in Park City that are easier on the wallet (but still more than you’d pay at the least expensive restaurants in neighboring SLC). All Park City Restaurants on this list can be eaten at for $30 or less per person.

15. Hearth and Hill

Similar to many other Park City restaurants, Hearth and Hill is a family owned and ran operation, newly opened in the Kimball Junction area. Hearth and Hill has an eclectic menu from comfort food to Asian fusion menu items to fresh and delicious salads. The menu is divided into different sections for shared plates, salads and bowls, sandwiches/burgers/tacos, and dinner only entrees. It’s upscale enough to feel like you’re actually going to a nice place for lunch or dinner that you don’t have to get totally dressed up for.

From the shareable menu, we recommend the beets and burrata, citrus cured hamachi, or the shrimp shumai. Our favorite dish though for something more substantial is the avocado salad (add salmon). It’s served with romaine, cucumber, orange, tajin, pepita-quinoa clusters, and cilantro coconut dressing that all together is just so hearty but still refreshing. No matter what you do make sure and save room for the seasonal warm crisp.

14. Bartolo’s

Bartolo’s is new to our list of favorite Park City restaurants. The food here is great and the perfect spot for any time of day as they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner! The restaurant is bright and modern, the service is friendly and fast, but most importantly the food is really delicious. We also love that they’re located in Kimball Junction because sometimes you don’t want to drive clear in the heck up to Main Street for good food.

Menu favorites: smoked trout benedict- our favorite breakfast item on the menu! Served with dill cream, hollandaise, pickled red onion, and “everything” seeds. For lunch or dinner get the rigatoni bolognese, served with parmesan, fresh ricotta, and herbs, or the shrimp spaghetti- made with fresh garlic and tomatoes, pepperoncino, arugula, parmesan, lemon zest, and herbs.

13. Five 5eeds

There are several Aussie style restaurants in Park City, and while all of them are a welcome sight to the PC dining scene, our favorite of these Park City restaurants is Five5eeds. We love coming here for delicious and fresh food in a bright and inviting environment. Five 5eeds is located on Snow Creek Drive, just off of Park Ave. It’s a great place for breakfast before heading out on the mountain for the day or lunch with family or friends. The menu items at Five 5eeds are sourced locally and focus on seasonal ingredients.

Menu favorites: Hotcakes- beautiful (and huge) pancake served with mixed berries, lemon-infused mascarpone, nuts, and seeds. Smashed avo on toast- exactly what it sounds like. Smashed avocado, watercress, grape tomato, and white radish salad, romesco and corn relish. Shakshouka- Moroccan baked eggs, feta, dukkah, toast, and spicy sausage. They also make their baked goods in house, daily and we have yet to try something that we didn’t like!

12. Riverhorse Provisions

Our love for Riverhorse Provisions runs deep. Coming from the same creators as Riverhorse on Main (you know it’s going to be good), this gourmet grocery store and cafe is the perfect stop for a casual yet delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner in Park City. It’s fast-casual service during the daytime and sit down for dinner, but no matter what time of day you decide to eat here make sure and take a few minutes to peruse their gourmet grocery items. Perfect for last minute shopping with plenty of grab and go items, or just a great spot to stock up on snacks for a day on the mountain with local favorites like Creminelli Fine Meats, Beehive Cheese, and Kodiak Cakes.

This is our favorite of all the Park City restaurants for breakfast specifically. Lunch and dinner are fantastic too but this is an ideal spot for a quick grab and go or casual sit down restaurant at the top of historic Main. Menu favorites: breakfast wrap- the sophisticated breakfast burrito of your dreams, made with house-made sausage, promontory cheddar, pico de gallo, scrambled eggs, crispy polenta bites, and chipotle creme all on a Spanish tortilla. The mountain English muffin sandwich is a fantastic classic breakfast sandwich, too. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, get the acai bowl, served with peanut & almond butter, granola, coconut milk, banana, toasted coconut, blackberries, and kiwi.

11. Freshies Lobster Co

Freshies Lobster Co has been serving fresh Maine lobster to Park City locals since 2009 from their ever-popular food truck and their two brick and mortar locations in Park City and Salt Lake City. Just as delicious (and often times better) than some of the popular lobster rolls we’ve sampled on the east coast, Freshies does an outstanding job serving a simple, and unbeatable sandwich that has smitten the hearts of foodies from all over the world.

Menu favorites: Real Mainah Lobster Roll- a toasted New England hot dog bun with fresh lobster, mayo, hot butter, and seasoning. Truly love at first bite and bound to convince any non-seafood lovers to change their mind. We dare you to find a better Lobster Roll in the entire state of Utah. The Maine-Iac salad is super refreshing and delicious too, with mixed greens, blueberries, aggiano cheese, maple pecans, and a maple balsamic dressing. Or, if you want something truly decadent and rich, get the lobster mac and cheese- served with gruyere, local cheddar, and 2.5 ounces of fresh lobster.

Mid Range Park City Restaurants ($30-60)

A list of the best restaurants in Park City that are typical of true Park City pricing, more specifically in the $30-60 range per person. These locations are specifically recommended for food enthusiasts who are willing to spend a penny or two more on their meal in Park City.

10. Yuki Yama Sushi

No great foodie destination is complete without a sushi restaurant you can count on. Yuki Yama was opened by Chef Kirk Terashima and Matt Baydaya with a menu featuring fresh fish flown in daily from around the world. Their kitchen menu, equally as innovative, includes different Asian inspired dishes with outstanding flavors and textures. We included Yuki Yama on this list of best restaurants in Park City because of the incredible lengths they take to go the extra mile, but more importantly, it’s the best tasting sushi in all of Pak City.

Menu Favorites: Baby Back Ribs- five baby back ribs prepared with a jalapeno and teriyaki chocolate glaze. Omakase Nigiri- our number one recommendation to the adventurous foodie willing to try a dish that truly highlights the creativity and uniqueness of Yuki Yama. This gorgeous and delectable dish includes 9 chef’s choice pieces of nigiri sushi, each with a special garnish and sauce. It’s an off the menu item and available to order at the sushi bar.

9. Tupelo Park City

Situated right on historic Main Street, Tupelo showcases an immaculate menu of globally inspired food, all artisanally sourced thanks to executive chef and owner Matt Harris’s. His farm-to-table approach to elevated dining manifests in his seasonally changing menu from local burrata salad to Rocky Mountain elk bolognese to pan seared Utah trout. Tupelo is open for dinner only, with Sunday bunch every week as well.

Menu Favorites: The buttermilk biscuits are a non-negotiable- fresh, flaky homemade buttermilk biscuits served with honey butter straight from heaven. We also love the Rockhill Creamery cheese fritters, deviled eggs, and tupelo Caesar salad for appetizers. Our favorite entree is the beef and barley- Niman ranch sirloin served with sauteed farm greens, barley risotto, vegetables, and a garlic puree. You’re going to love every single thing you try here!

8. Handle

If you’re in the foodie know at all and have talked to anyone about the best restaurants in Park City, Handle will inevitably surface in conversation. Founded by Executive Chef Briar Handly, Melissa Gray, and Meagan Nash, Handle serves insanely good American cuisine, small plate style. Their menu changes seasonally and allows each diner to order from an incredible selection of small bites, cold dishes, hot dishes, hearty plates, and, of course, dessert.

Menu favorites: General Tso Cauliflower- a long-standing menu item at Handle and one of their most popular menu items with cauliflower, cilantro, and a sriracha vinaigrette. Incredible flavor and unlike any other cauliflower dish you’ve ever had before. Fried chicken breast- perfectly breaded and fried chicken breast served with seasonally rotating sides. The burger is also fantastic, served every night at the bar or on Wednesday evenings during summertime in the dining room- it’s one of the best burgers you will ever have.

7. Purple Sage

Purple Sage is one of our standbys among the best restaurants in Park City. Originally the Rocky Mountain Bell telephone building, dating back to as early as the 1880’s and currently on the national historic registry, Purple Sage has a rustic and timeless interior that will make any guest feel like they’ve traveled back into the 19th century. This western-themed restaurant boasts an incredible menu filled with comfort food classics as well as new and innovative twists on what has been explained as “fancy cowboy food”.  The cuisine at Purple Sage is infused with a predominant chile flavor that gives it a warm, comforting finish to every dish.

Menu favorites: Grilled Skuna Bay Salmon- a grilled, craft raised, salmon filet served atop parmesan and chile heirloom corn grits with braised greens and a Meyer Lemon and dill butter.  Sugar and Chile Cured Duck- duck two ways, both seared and roasted Mapleleaf Farms duck breast and a confit leg of duck on green chili mac ‘n’ cheese with sautéed sugar snap peas.

6. Cortona Italian Cafe

Cortona Italian Cafe is one of the best Park City restaurants when you’re in the mood for Italian food served in a cozy, off-the-beaten-path setting. Open for dinner only, Cortona serves typical Italian fare from caprese to homemade pasta to traditional Italian entrees like chicken piccata or veal marsala.

Start with an appetizer or two if your appetite allows, but for entrees try the potato gnocchi or the house-made lasagna. The gnocchi is served with crispy cubes of pancetta, artichokes, lemon, and sherry- it’s tangy and rich, making the perfect bowl of Italian comfort food. The lasagna is also fantastic for those seeking red sauce indulgence, with alternating layers of homemade pasta, bolognese, and bechamel sauce. The restaurant is small so if your heart is set on eating here be sure to reserve ahead of time.

5. High West Distillery & Saloon

Hello and ode to High West Distillery, one of our very favorite spots for amazing food in Park City! Founded in 2009 by Jane and David Perkins, High West became the first legal distillery in the state of Utah since 1870. Now, with four separate locations and a saloon to pair with delicious food, High West has become an essential stop at Old Town Park City for locals and tourists alike and is clearly one of the best restaurants in Park City. We love their down-to-earth, lunch and dinner menu filled with some of the most delicious food you’ll ever set eyes on.

Menu favorites: Pretzel & Beer Cheese- house-made pretzel served with whiskey and beer cheese, homemade mustard dip, and pickles. This isn’t the pretzel you ordered at your high school football game. The High West Burger- a beautiful 8 oz. blend of bison and beef served with broiled aged gruyere, blue cheese, BBQ glazed sweet onion, crispy fried shallots, all served on a homemade house caraway bun with hand cut fries. One of the best burgers you will have in your life from one of our absolute favorite Park City restaurants.

FINE DINING PARK CITY RESTAURANTS (Over $60)

A list of the best restaurants in Park City that are the cream of the crop, or the “creme de la creme” as some would put it. These restaurants are a good fit for you if: 1) you’re looking to splurge on a special occasion, more specifically $60 and upwards per person, 2) when you want to make an impression on your boss, prospective father-in-law, or that special someone, 3) simply put- you want a fantastic, knock-em-dead, stupidly delicious meal.

4. Powder

If you need one excuse to venture over to the Waldorf Astoria in Park City, make it a meal at their high-end restaurant, Powder. We are absolutely smitten by their exquisite menu sourced by local ingredients. Their menu changes seasonally and they offer breakfast, lunch, apres, and dinner for all those who wish to dine.

Always start with the local cheese and charcuterie board- one of the best we have ever had and served with cured meats, cheeses, house pickles, dried fruits, and preserves. When it comes to the dinner menu, the Snake River Farms Wagyu Bavette is at the top of our list. A great spot to dine whether you’re recovering after a long day of skiing or making reservations for a special night out. Don’t forget to save room for dessert!

3. J & G Grill

Tthe J & G grill at Deer Valley’s St. Regis is one of best restaurants in Park City and one of our very favorite places for a really nice meal on the mountain. Chef Rachel Wiener serves rotating, seasonal menus that are sure to please food enthusiasts from all walks with her impressive ability to combine traditional with innovative and serve dishes with presentation and flavor that are unparalleled in Park City. Although the J & G Grill serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we recommend spending the better part of an evening in their immaculate yet intimate restaurant, working your way through the menu, course by course.

Menu Favorites: Housemade Burrata- with a  cranberry, fennel, and elderflower compote, topped with micro arugula and micro basil, served with grilled toast. Slow Cooked Norwegian Organic Salmon- flown in six days of the week, served on a galangal with sautéed spinach, snow peas, and pea shoots, and garnished with Vietnamese mint oil and pickled green peppercorns. Snake River Farms Grilled Pork Chop- served with a quince puree, sautéed spicy kale, cocoa essence, and a vanilla oil.

2. Grappa Italian Restaurant

When you talk to Park City locals about the best fine dining options in town, Grappa will inevitably be one of the first mentions. Founder Chef Bill White, a native of Traverse City, Michigan and world traveler opened Grappa (formerly operated as a bed and breakfast) in 1993. Today Bill White Enterprises encompasses seven restaurants, a bakery, one farm, and many more enterprises to come. I love the variety you can find on the menu at Grappa but my absolute favorite is the Bill White original, Osso Bucco- slow braised veal shank, lightly floured, braised, and slowly cooked for up to 8 hours, served with creamy polenta, caramelized brussels sprouts, pancetta, rich red wine tomato jus, and a toasted pine nut gremolata.

Other menu favorites: Grapes & Gorgonzola- sweet red grapes, roasted walnuts, gorgonzola, served with a red wine vinaigrette. Seared Duck & Risotto- confit duck leg served with a butternut squash risotto, grilled broccolini, and port agrodulce.

Riverhorse on Main is a clean, spectacular fine dining institution located on historic Main Street and is one of the best Park City restaurants. This gorgeous space hosts food enthusiasts from all over the world each year who come back for some of the best bites they have ever had in the heart of the Wasatch Mountains. If you’re looking for an elegant evening out with a significant other, or a place to celebrate a special occasion with family or friends, Riverhorse on Main is the perfect destination and one of our top picks for Park City restaurants. The incredible presentation at Riverhorse is always matched by the sophisticated and pronounced flavors in each dish.

  1. Your list is spot on! I work in the same building as the grocery cafe and it is impossible to resist their curry wrap. I ate at Ganesh for the first time a couple days ago and am really glad to see it included on this list. – Heather @ ExploreWithHeather.com

    1. Hi Heather! Thanks so much for the kind words. The folks at Yuki Yama recommended Ganesh and it was love at first bite! Haven’t tried the curry wrap at the grocery cafe- can’t wait to try it next time. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  2. Good Stuff,
    Moving to Park City in May and can’t wait to try out some of the restaurants, mouth was watering just looking at the food.

  3. Hi Brooke,
    We live in SLC, but recently bought a ski condo in Park City to rent out to guests. We’ve spent a little time doing “market research” on the food scene (rough job) & we have loved some of the same restaurants you highlighted. Would you be okay if I shared your link with the guests that stay at our place? I have descriptions of our favorite places, but would love some additional recommended dining options especially for upper end dining.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Amy! Thanks so much for the thoughtful comment- this post definitely took a lot of research and time so I’m glad that you’ve enjoyed it!! I would absolutely love it if you shared with your guests- hoping that helps them have an awesome dining experience here in Park City. Let me know if you need anything else! -Brooke

  4. Love this list Brooke! I live in Heber but my husband and I frequently spend date night in Park City. Your top five thrifty spots are identical to our favorites. I especially love seeing Ganesh on your list! It’s such a hidden gem. The food is always spot on and like you said, the service is fantastic. I’ve tried a couple of the spots on the more pricey list and can’t wait to check out the rest!

    1. Hi Kaitlyn! Thanks so much for reading and for your kind words. How FUN that you live in Heber- I’m totally jealous! Glad that you like my recommendations. Ganesh is the BOMB! Really impressed with their delicious (and affordable) great Indian cuisine! Hope you like the others. 🙂

  5. excelent list , congratulations, and very well explained.

    is great to have a list done with woman taste, Im sure it is the best way to impress our wife.

  6. Looking for the very best high end restaurant in Park City. I have analized your list but would like you to tell me which out of the 5/6 you recommended was very best?

    Thank you!
    Jenny

    1. Hi Jenny! Ohhhh that is so hard! If you’re looking for high end food with a high end/swanky ambiance, I’d recommend going with either the J & G grill or Powder. They’re both housed in stunning gorgeous buildings and work mostly with high end clientele. They both also have the spending power to source really incredible ingredients for their kitchens. If you’d like something high end but local, I’d go for Grappa! Definitely a special occasion location that’s high end but there’s a more intimate feel in their Italian restaurant. I think that the local’s favorite on this list would likely be Riverhorse- right on main and incredible food. My personal favorite on the high end list, however, would probably be Zoom. While their price point is certainly high end, the ambiance is a little more casual. I’m also really loyal to them because I love the history behind their restaurant and we’ve had incredible experiences not only at Zoom but all of their restaurants over at Sundance. Sorry that I couldn’t pin point one high end spot, but I hope that helps!

    2. I can’t help noticing you didn’t include the Edge Steakhouse. It’s at Canyons and is one of the best restaurants anywhere. It’s high end and it has a wonderful wine list.

  7. Although I lived in Park City for a summer about twenty years ago , I am back having recently purchased a home in Deer Valley . Your list is spot on , and I can’t wait to try a few of the newer places ..
    Thank you so much for taking the time to prepare such an eloquent list . Very glad I stumbled into it. !

  8. Longtime local here.
    Freshies is delicious but not at all cheap eats. 1 roll is $20, a cup of soup is $10.
    We’ve been to Ganesh and had absolutely awful service. The food was good but it took 2 hours and the order was incorrect. I won’t go back. Good Karma is a much better option.
    Riverhorse is hands down my favorite fine dining option, but the Seafood Buffet at Deer Valley is a close second.

    1. Hi Lauren! Thanks for stopping by. If you read the introductory paragraph to this section of “thrifty” (definitely not cheap) restaurants, I clearly specify that “budget friendly here is not like a budget meal anywhere else. All Park City Restaurants on this list can be eaten at for $20 or less per person”. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t have a good experience at Ganesh. When we went the service was fantastic and the food wonderful. I felt that Good Karma was very overpriced and not a location I’d send friends or family. Have a great summer!

  9. Thanks for the suggestions! We are headed to Park City for our Anniversary and I wanted to find a place I can get all dressed up to go and fine dine! Any suggestions for a dress up joint with a great steak?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi there- and happy anniversary! For a dress up spot and a great steak I’d recommend the J & G grill, Powder, or Riverhorse on Main (all in that lowest section on the post). I hope that helps! All three of those locations change their menus though so check online to make sure if your heart is set on steak! 🙂

        1. Ruth’s Chris is definitely on a lot of people’s lists, but we felt like with others that serve excellent cuts of local steak on this list (Riverhorse, J & G Grill, Powder, etc.), that there wasn’t a need to include them.

  10. Hi Brooke

    I enjoyed reading your post and plan to visit many of the restaurants on your list. We will being skiing at PC during Sundance, any suggestions on how to obtain a reservation at some of the more elegant restaurants on the list?

    Thanks

    Mike

    1. Hi Mike! Thank you so much- I’m so happy that you liked our recommendations! My best suggestion for landing a reservation would be to call them asap- I have listed phone numbers for each restaurant in the post. I hope that helps- good luck!

  11. Hi Brooke, great article! What’s your recommendation for a romantic dinner between Park City and Midway (preferably something in Midway)?

    1. Note: we’ll be doing a hayride after, so won’t really be able to dress up. So nice, quaint and romantic, but doesn’t require fancy dress. Thanks!

      1. Good to know- you should be okay to go to blue boar. Or if you have a little extra time go down Provo Canyon for an amazing meal at the foundry grill at Sundance (Casual dress okay there too).

  12. Hi Brooke,

    I just wanted to thank you for this list as well as many other recommendations we gleaned from your website. We spent a week in Utah in late October and used your recommendations to eat at both Grappa and Chimayo from this list as well as Pig and Jelly Jar, The Red Iguana and others you recommended in SLC. Our trip would not have been as great without those recommendations.

    Again, a huge thanks for an excellent website. And now we know when we go to other places you have been to that even though you are much younger than us, you have quite the educated palette. Your recommendations were spot on.

    BTW: We liked Chimayo a bunch more than Grappa. Thought Grappa was not worth the money but Chimayo worth every cent.

    1. Hi Jim- thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. It truly made my day! My whole mission at Female Foodie is to help people find great food whether they’re at home or traveling, so to hear that you were able to eat at (and enjoy) some of my favorite spots in Utah makes me so happy. I hope that you can come back soon to visit and that you’ll find other great spots outside of SLC that our team has recommended. Good to know that you liked Chimayo more than Grappa- they are under the same ownership and I’m always interested to hear what different diners prefer. Happy Holidays!

  13. Great post! Your pics are amazing.

    I will be in PC solo, open to low to high-end options. Any recommendations for a spot with a bar to eat at?

    1. Hi Eric! Thank you so much- I hope that you find some places you love! In terms of spots with a bar…. from this list I believe that Sammy’s, Yuki Yama, Handle, Blind Dog, High West, and the J and G Grill have bars. Good luck! 🙂

  14. You list is spot on. Too bad a couple have closed. I would suggest Goldener Hirsch at Silverlake (Deer Valley)

  15. We have out of town relatives coming to visit and we wanted to spoil them with a nice evening out in Park City. Ruverhorse has been an all time favorite but we haven’t tried J and G yet. Since its at the top of your list we’ll give it’s try. Thanks for the research and suggestions.

    1. Hi Katie! Riverhorse is one of my favorites too- I think that if you like the food there you will really enjoy J&G Grill- fantastic food and gorgeous restaurant. Let me know what you think! 🙂

  16. Hi Brooke-
    My family (husband, mother, 6 and 8 yo girls and I are traveling to Park City over Christmas. I’m wondering if you can recommend good eats for the whole family during that time. I have heard great things about Fireside and the Seafood Buffet at Deer Valley. I’m also interested in riverhorse but am not clear if it’s goid for kids. We have four dinners there and I would like xmas to be special. Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!! Cynthia

    1. Hi Cynthia! How exciting that you’ll be in PC for Christmas! I think the food at Fireside is good but not my favorite (why it isn’t on this list). The Seafood Buffet at Deer Valley is a good option for families and for special occasions too (again- I just picked my favorites for this list). I don’t see why Riverhorse wouldn’t be a great option for kids if they’re decently behaved. The food is fantastic there and if you want something memorable it would be a GREAT spot!

      1. Thank you Brooke. I was wondering if you could recommend any other family friendly restaurants with great food for adults in Park City. Appreciate it. Love your blog.

        1. All of my Park City recommendations will be on this list for the best food- can you tell me what would make the restaurant family friendly? To be honest almost all of these restaurants are nicer places to eat, which goes with the territory when it comes to Park City.

  17. Enjoy your comments. My family, 5 adults including then 6 month pregnant daughter in law, are coming to PC for Thanksgiving. Don’t think we are interested in the $80+ buffets but wonder if you have any recommendations that might not be quite as expensive, pre-fix or buffet are both fine.

    1. Hi Jim! Happy that you’ll be able to spend some time with your family in PC this year. #s 5-10 on this list are my “mid range” picks for great restaurants in Park City, meaning they’re nicer spots but they certainly won’t be $80/person. I hope that helps!

  18. This is an interesting list, we’re in PC for 2 weeks and I’m adding Ganesh to my “must list” before we leave. I have to say, I’m a little tired of seeing Grappa on everyone’s best list, I’ve always felt it’s the most over-rated restaurant in PC, but to each their own. Have you had a chance to try Fletcher’s? It’s our favorite at the moment, highly recommend the short rib with mashed potato instead of grits. The chef is so hospitable, we always feel so welcome. Really enjoying your blog!

    1. Hi Amber- thanks so much! We had to keep the post to just our favorites, but the short rib sounds amazing- I’ll have to try it! Thanks again for the kind words. Glad you are finding new places to eat. 🙂

  19. When was this written? Headed to PC 19-24 and would love some recs on where to eat. This list is amazing, but wanna make sure it’s not outdated before I start making resos.
    We will have 4 kids (5&7×2) and 6 adults. We plan on doing 1 or 2 nights without kids….and the other with. The kids are well behaved and use to eating out at nice restaurants. What would you suggest for nights without them and then the nights with?! We are up for going over to Deer Valley, too. Thanks sooo much!!!

    1. Hi Shaara- this post is updated every year! This is our list of the best Park City restaurants currently. I can’t speak from personal experience on which places would be good with kids but if I were to go to any of these places as an “adults only” type of meal I’d recommend yuki yama, handle, high west, or any of the places under the “fine dining” section. Hope that helps!

  20. Oh goodness, I need to eat at . . . all of these! lol I knew park city has some good food options but I have never had any. I’ll add these to my food bucket list 🙂
