“Food was good value”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

The small seating area at the front of this venue had a good atmosphere, as well as the food being good value for money. We had the stew which was nice, filling and good value. Only issue was the high turnover of people in the restaurant which meant that the seating area was a little messy with used glasses and dishes.

“Don't Miss This View!”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

Sam’s Smokehouse is a new LEED certified restaurant atop Sam’s Knob. The only way to get there is the Village Express Lift at Snowmass. The full service BBQ restaurant has floor to ceiling glass windows (20 ft?) overlooking miles of snowcapped mountains. It ranks in the top five most stunning dining views I have experienced. (thus the Five Star ranking) The Smokehouse serves BBQ, salads and burgers, and closes daily at 3pm. Being a North Carolinian, I was suspicious of the “Carolina BBQ Sandwich”, but it was surprisingly good and a large portion. Prices are between $7 up to $18 for a half rack of ribs. They have a nice selection of wines by the glass. The wait staff was friendly and quick. There was also a snack/coffee area with self serve seating. My son and I are immediate skiers and there were easy blue trails down from Sam’s Knob. I inquired with Trip Advisor to add this restaurant as the views are not to be missed if you are skiing at Snowmass! But go early or late, as it is a popular slope side dining spot during lunch.
