Pub

“A perfect apres ski place with German food and beer within an old building shared with antique shops. Try a sampler of exotic and traditional fresh sausages and a hot pretzel. About 6 yummy beers on tap (love the dunkel) and many Belgian beers by the bottle for a pretty good price. ”

American Restaurant
$$
“Walk in and get that “everybody knows your name” feel. Enjoy Ollie’s classic American bar fare that can't be called “bar food.” The high-quality menu items are prepared fresh, never frozen. Families can enjoy the dining room that is separate from the bar area and play a variety of arcade games, pools table, and shuffleboard. Sports enthusiasts can watch the 16 HD TVs throughout the restaurant.”
