What a special spot. Charming. the bar is tucked into the lower level of the building and has one wall dedicated to the view. We shared a brined turkey with Brie and cranberry sandwich....amazing layering of flavours and textures. It came with fries that were so fresh you had to be careful not to burn your lips. Of course the... More

Located half way up Baldy by gondola out of the River Run lodge, this is a perfectly fine place for lunch when winter skiing or summer exploring. As a dining destination for dinner, the only reason to go is for the view. The food and service are adequate, but nothing to rave about. A bit pricey too for what offerings... More

We've eaten at the Roundhouse for years - very glad to see if refreshed! For us, the Roundhouse is wonderful for mid day or late afternoon visits.

Take the gondola from River Run Plaza to the Roundhouse to enjoy killer views. The food here is a little above ski quality...so don't expect too much. The vistas make up for the food. Although, the quantity is large is you go that way.

They were very accommodating to our large group of 22. They are staffed very short in the summer. They would bring out 4 or 5 meals at a time. This allows the food to be hot; but by the time the last of our group got their food some of our group was finished eating. This makes it hard on... More

Walk up menu suggest a paper plate encounter, but a much better experience awaits. Linen napkins, real silverware, and ceramic plates are how they do business. My salmon sandwich was delicious! The homemade Idaho potato chips were an excellent compliment. I washed it all down with an Oskar Blues Dales IPA while enjoying a beautiful view. The scenery behind my... More

Ski in or take the gondola up to this beautiful mid mountain restaurant. Stunning views and lovely atmosphere. 4 sided fireplace in the main dining room, beautiful bar area, and wonderful food. The fondue here is always a fun thing to start with. On this trip we started with soups and salads and we both had the duck confit for... More

Yes, it's a beautiful setting, but the average to poor food, sloppy presentation and uneven service are not worth the considerable expense. On a positive note the Bloody Mary's from the bar were really well made and delicious. Much better food options in Ketchum and Hailey.

Unless you are willing to take a hike of 3.8 miles and almost 2,000 vertical feet of climbing to get to The Roundhouse you need to add $23 per person to get there via the Sun Valley gondola. (Should you decide to take the hike, which is rated "moderate" on the local trail maps but is rated "tough" by this... More

3 out of 4 stars (I reserve 5 stars for the best of the best) Took the gondola up the mountain to hike around a bit and decided to get something to eat before heading out. During the summer they change their menu to have salads, burgers, and sandwiches. So I was a little disappointed when I could not order... More
