Is it worth it? I'm taking the non-skiing wife later this month and checked out the menu. $31 for chicken? What about the slopeside dining room. Worth $47 for the seafood buffet?

Any suggestions on where to eat?

Never did Helen's. When looking to impress, I usually go to Lesley's in Donegal (near the 711/31 intersection). Check out their site: www.shol.com/mtview/MtRest.htm

Beware, may need reservation.

The Inn at Georgian place also has a great restuarant.

The food at Out of the Fire Cafe is creative and well prepared and you bring your own wine so you can have a great dinner for $40.

Another option is Green Gables, the restuarant at the Mountain Playhouse, an excellent restuarant.

Now, that looks like it's worth a try. The wine list has quite a nice variety, and the menu is enticing yet reasonable. Thanks, I'll pass that on to the decider.

All three look great. The Inn would be perfect for lunch just after getting off the turnpike. Green Gables is a little out of the way for a weekend trip, but will keep on the list if we are up there longer. Out of the fire is a possibility for diner if we want to drive. BYOB could work very well.

Thanks,

I will second the nomination for both Lesley's and Out of the Fire.

Lesley's is definitely more formal and also more expensive.

Out of the Fire is very laid back and friendly.

Both have great food... smile

PS - Out of the Fire technically has gone to a "corking" fee which I believe is a flat fee per person drinking, but it is really reasonable...I want to say $2.
