“Great food and beverage”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I had about a 30 minute wait but found a seat at the bar. I ordered a dram of the High West rye whiskey which was pricey but very good. I switched to a local beer that I cant remember the name of but it was also very good. I then ordered their burger which is 1/2 bison and 1/2 beef. I don't know what sauce was on it but it was about the best burger I've ever had.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review of your recent 5 star experience here at High West. We appreciate the compliments and are thrilled you enjoyed the burger - it's certainly one of our signature dishes. Also, we do have a few local beers and I'd assume the "Ghostrider" from Wastach Beers might have been your selection.

Again, we're glad you enjoyed yourself and that we provided you a place to relax while visiting Park City. We look forward to the next time.

Cheers...

“"Good Booze and Victuals"”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The place is large, open, noisy, vibrant and fun. If this is your idea of a night out with good drinks and food this is your place. Many interesting drink offerings to start and most feature their brand of whiskies which are good. A good offering of small plates to start which are meant to share at the table and add to the fun. The main course menu is limited but with sufficient offerings to please all. And the food is very good. Desserts are good and large so they can be shared. You can have a whiskey sampling at the table with several "flights" offered. We capped off the night with an unadvertised flight of Pappy Van Winkle whiskeys that was a little expensive but worth it and fun for this highly prized and scarce product. Service if efficient and friendly and help to make it a good night out. There is also a bus stop across the street to get you back to your hotel safely after your whiskey adventure!!

Thanks for your detailed 5 star review and the adding of the free PC bus recommendation! You covered all the bases on product and service which are appreciated and thanks as well for the Pappy reference. We've added those products on a limited basis and it's a fun flight for those curious about a revered whiskey brand.

Thanks for making the trek up and over the hill from Draper and we look forward to your next visit.

Cheers...

“Go out of your way to get here!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We started by doing the whiskey tour with Ryan. This was a great free experience learning about the history of the brewery, how whiskey is made, how it is distilled and differences in types of spirits and finishing with a trip to the salon to try some of the products.
It was a bit of a plug for their own whiskey but that didn’t matter because of how good it was. You can purchase a sample at the end of the tour to find the one’s you like (we did this) and also for some of the other items they make at HWDS. Ryan made multiple suggestions based on what we liked, and I found a HW whiskey I love as well as a new Jameson Red Breast. Thanks Ryan!
After our whiskey tasting we needed to eat. Quickly! So we sat in the dinning room and Katie was our server. She was as friendly a person as you will ever meet. She had suggestions for dinner and apps, gave us the inside scoop on what drinks were like, and even allowed a person in our party to borrow a cell-phone charger! We ended up ordering the mac and cheese bites, the side sauce was awesome. We also ordered the Shishito peppers that were roasted and fried. Very yummy!
I had the beef/buffalo burger per Katie’s recommendation and also listened to her about putting some of our roasted peppers from the appetizer on the burger. Fantastic! Another in our group had the pulled pork sandwich which they really liked.
For dessert we did the whiskey infused doughnut (possibly the most amazing desert ever) and the S’more. We were worried the doughnut would not be that impressive but with every bit you could taste a bit of the whiskey which made it even more desirable. The Smore was liked by those who had enough room to eat it! Phil, one of the managers, also stopped by and we talked about how much we enjoyed the experience.
We will be making High West and absolute stop each time we are in SLC, not just Park city. We will find the time to make it up here (30 minutes or so) just so we can eat here!
Their menu is online so check it out before you go!

“Learned about whiskey”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

I had read about this place on trip advisor before we came out to Park city. Everyone raved about the whiskey flights and the tours you could take to see about the whiskey and vodka making. Our host John brought our flight over and explained each type of whiskey and how it was made. The food we ordered is also very unusual and great. A vast choice of unusual drinks.
