our group was staying there, and we were so supprised, the food was amazing, everyone enjoyed the food and service, the bar is very small so our group kind of took over the upstairs, but it was all good.

A little out in the middle of nowhere. But worth the trip. It is in an old barn, but beautifully refurbished and decorated. The steak tips were delicious and plentiful. There was live music that was nicely muted so you can still talk to your...More

First time diners to the Shovel Handle at the end of the ski season. Food was ok but pricey. Kitchen must be a distance from the tri-level barn dining room because chowder arrived cold. Might be worth another visit during ski season next year.
