Pine Creek Cookhouse

Aspen, Colorado
AAA Inspector 599: Hands down this is the best mountain view from a restaurant I've ever seen.
Views of flowers, aspens and mountain scenery creates a special ambiance as you dine. Enjoy cocktails and appetizers, like the artisanal cheese and cured meat plate, beside the outdoor wood-burning stove before selecting an entrée featuring buffalo, elk or line-caught fresh fish. In winter, the road to the restaurant closes and guests meet at 11399 Castle Creek Rd to take a horse-drawn sleigh to the final destination. The more adventurous can arrive on skis or snowshoes.

South Lake Tahoe, California
AAA Inspector 557: Who would've thought an incredible Hawaiian restaurant would be found at the bottom of a ski mountain? Not I! Amazing seafood and BBQ pork is served.
If you are longing for a taste of the islands, this restaurant offers an opportunity to savor contemporary Hawaiian cuisine, such as island style baby back ribs or fresh fish, which is flown in from Hawaii three times a week. An extensive sushi menu and a variety of rolls are available.

Westbank Grill

Teton Village, Wyoming
AAA Inspector 334: I will never tire of watching excited skiers and bicyclists going up and down on the chair lifts or families taking an evening walk up the slopes.
After a day skiing or white-water rafting, guests can savor a creatively presented, regionally influenced meal made all the more enjoyable by warmth from a massive stone fireplace. The grand dining room continues the resort's elegant rustic theme featuring floor-to-ceiling windows that offer panoramic views of the slopes and the mountains. Prepared in the 1,800-degree infrared grill, cider-glazed wild boar, dry-aged buffalo rib-eye, smoked Colorado lamb rack or corn-fed Washington filet mignon may appear on the menu.
