Excellent Bavarian ambiance and fare - ski down the slope, soak up the sun and enjoy hearty Bavarian sausages and beer. We stopped her a couple of times for lunch between ski runs. Great service and staff dressed in Bavarian gear.

The Bavarian is a sit-down restaurant located withing a short walking distance of the bottom of Lift #4. It's a nice place to eat if you are in no hurry and don't mind spending a bit more. If you are looking for something quick and cheap, you are better off eating at the neighboring Phoenix Grill. The sun deck is... More

Doesn't get much better than this. Ski in and out, just stack your skis and walk into a classic Bavarian restaurant. Great traditional foods as well as long list of beers and spirits. Great hot chocolate with some spirits is all you need as you sit on the lounge chairs and watch the skiers enjoying themselves on the slopes! Try... More

This on mountain restaurant is great. They have very authentic german dishes/drinks like gluhwein, goulash and bavarian pretzels. The service was great even though it was a very busy lunch!

We have a tradition of eating on the deck of the St. Bernard every year which we did on day one. we wanted to try something different for day two and have wanted to try this place for years. Was a little surprised of the 20+ minute wait time for a table outside but it was a beautiful afternoon and... More

By far the best food, bar, staff and view for a dining experience in TSV. Don't care what the prices are - its worth it. Food is excellent - Bar menu is excellent and the staff is exceptional - and the view absolutely cannot be beat on a bluebird day!

We did the fondue night at the Bavarian and weren't disappointed. A very cool place, unique experience and a great wine list.

Food was outstanding, service was very good. Ask the waitress for recommendations. I had the noodle dish (goes by a German name) and it was enough for two although I ate 3/4 of it as I had been skiing. It's located at the base of the hill on the back side, and if you are driving up to it in... More

The food appears to be authentically German, although the servers, who are supposedly also dressed authentically, look a bit kitschy. All items on the menu are great, but in oder to get your lunch on weekends you will need to wait first for the table and then for the service. Offer of draft beers is outstanding!

I visited the Bavarian in early December and was fortunate to have diner with Tomas who built it way back when. It has and always will be a classic lodeg in one of the most pristine areas in the world. Great vibe and location but be careful as its hard to leave after a big lnch and get skiing again.
