We eat here every time we ski here and haven't been disappointed yet. The portions are huge. Be sure to bring your appetite. The food is tasty too and fairly priced. Enjoy lunch here in the midst of skiing or snowboarding or end the day with dinner. You won't be disappointed.

The Cliffhanger's restaurant has delicious food from, Bison sliders to Rocky Mtn trout and melt in your mouth pork chops. The chefs expertise is definitely a "step up" in the local culinary fare!

I really thought this was a joke. I don't know how they are still open. The apps ordered were grey, and the server explained they'd turned off the fryer hours earlier, but it was still warm, so he'd jut left them in extra long. Wow.

My wife and I enjoyed this visit to Monarch Mountain Lodge in the Fall. We enjoyed our eating experience at the Cliffhanger's R & L because of the delicious food, the friendly service, and the scenic surroundings. The resturant manager and cook is a great guy.
