Anchovies Pizzeria

Reviewed By Adrian L

Stopped by to get a Saturday night pizza after a busy day of skiing. After reading all the reviews saying how good the pizza is, we had high expectations.. and they were perfectly delivered. The pizza was scrumptious, melt-in-your-mouth perfection. Breadsticks were interesting and not for everyone.
Will recommend to my friends!

We stopped by to get a snack and something to drink. We went in the door was open. No one inside, no customers and no wait person. We waited for about 5 min and even yelled hello but no one answered. I know the town was slow the day of our visit but I would never had expected it to be like this. We would have loved to have sat and relaxed a little but instead just moved on.

Had breakfast here right before skiing. The place was busy. The prices are high, but maybe not for a ski resort. We had a breakfast burrito with hash browns and biscuits with gravy. The gravy was good but looked like a mix. Overall just okay. Not a fancy place either.

Reviewed By Steve B - Albuquerque, New Mexico

A very decent fast lunch in a diner setting. Even on a busy day the waitstaff got us our meal quickly. We were vastly undercharged--a one instead of a four was entered in the ten's place--and they quickly got it right and thanked us for our honesty.

Sundance Restaurant

Reviewed By Adrian L

I’m not sure what I expected, but this Mexican restaurant did not feel nor taste like a Mexican restaurant should. Maybe we made a mistake with our order or maybe we had high expectations?

We were promptly seated on a busy Friday night, and handed a bowl of chips and ‘salsa’. Why ‘’? It was just blended vegetables with no spice, but again probably nice for those who can’t handle spice. We ordered Nachos, Carne Adovada Burrito, and the Salmon Combo. Salmon was very small for the price but that’s just salmon for ya. The burrito was good as well! The nachos were inedible.. they looked like the plate had been stuck in an oven or warmer and left for hours. Do not order nachos.

Staff was fine, maybe they were missing a few people.

Mountain Treasures

Mountain Treasures has a huge menu of wonderful homemade soups, made-to-order deli sandwiches (like ruebens, chicken-fried steak sandwiches and muffalettas)on fresh, "housemade" baked breads. The delightful smell of Kolaches, cinnamon rolls, turnovers, and cookies flow through the whole place and you may find them hard to turn down! Entrees include fried chicken with fries & Texas toast as well as catfish with hush puppies & fries. Our coffee shop serves steaming cappuccinos, lattes, and fresh house coffee as well as fresh-fruit smoothies. We've proudly served visitors and locals for 12 years on Main Street right in the middle of town across from the Community House.

All kinds of the usual tourist stuff for all ages, as expected, but also featuring some nice/quality items. Staff was a hoot! Great fun place to shop.

Best Pizza In Town Breakfast Is Fast And Really Good

Reviewed By pcc10 - New York

Breakfast was a mess,first waited to be seated when they were not busy. Food came fast however my hash browns burned,I did not even know what they were on my plate. Toast so cold butter would not melt. Cheese omlet with bacon,had to look for bacon and cheese. Coffee $3.00 what a rip off. Wish I had taken a picture and got my money back on this mess,much better places to go.

We ate dinner there this evening. Service was great! My husband had Hawaiian pizza. My daughter had manicotti. I had the rolled eggplant (can’t remember name). It was ALL phenomenal!!! Can’t say enough great things about this restaurant. By far our favorite place we have eaten in town.
