A very cosy and nice lunch atop the gondola run. Good views of the valley and slopes - and easy to get to. A more special lunch place than the ones below in the valley and it feels like some of the loveli lunch places I visit while skiing in the alps. My only suggestion would be if one is coming with no skis as a non skier- the price of the gondola lift tickets should be a lot cheaper... or the restaurant should offer a deal for lunch visitors that reduces the price of the gondola ticket significantly. Paying $24 for an adult round trip just to have lunch is a hefty price.

If you are visiting Stowe mountain resort, the restaurant is worth visiting just for the incredible view. Take the over easy gondola to the main gondola (need lift ticket) and up to the Cliff House. It closes at 2:30 so we visited around 12:40 for lunch. It was pretty crowded and we ended up waiting at least 45 minutes for our food. It was okay but at least we were able to take some incredible photos.

It's all about the location. I f you don't want to take a picnic up the gondola this is only restaurant at top of Stowe Resort. Limited menu : salad, soup, a sandwich or two , and a couple apps, and a dessert or two only things on menu for lunch, but what we had ( hummus plate, salad and a BLT) was avery good. Not too pricey.

The Cliff House is best reached by gondola from the base of Stowe Mountain Resort. The ride is a little on the pricey side but once the summit is reached, well worth it. The mountain views breathtaking. Cliff House, part of the gondola station, has both inside dining area but if the weather is good, outside seating on the large deck is the only place, so sit back relax and enjoy the views over lunch! Given the location, the menu is better than expected with all the regular lunchtime fair, at reasonable prices.

Staying at the Stowe Mountain Lodge we took the "Over Easy" Gondolier to the main station where you purchased tickets to the top. If you are staying at the lodge be sure and tell them because you get a discount. We picked a perfect sunny day to see breathtaking views and have lunch on the deck. Food was ok and very expensive. Hamburgers were $17.00 and came with fries. Although the food was mediocre the view made up for it. I would definitely wait for a sunny day for the view because the food isn't worth the trip up.
