First things first. This is a restaurant with a bar. It is not just an attraction.

We went in for lunch on a Thursday at 11:30 AM. The place was deserted! But by the time the food arrived, it was filling up nicely. The atmosphere is very up scale and there is a huge window looking out at the landscape. Not a great view, but great light.

I ordered the prime rib French dip sandwich. This was a great choice. It is a bit messy to eat as the melted cheese and mushrooms were leaking out of the sandwich. But the taste was great. My wife ordered the Kobe hamburger. It had a very large bun and is so big it is hard to take a bite without squeezing the sandwich together. This was another great choice.

This is a winery and the wines we tried were great. And surprising, the servings were overly large. We are used to seeing a wine glass without about a third of the glass full. This was well over half full, and it was not a small glass.

Of all the places we have eaten in that area, this is by far the best.

No corners were cut at this establishment. Views are beautiful, the menu is appealing, the portions are healthy and the price is just right. If you end up on a beautiful weather day, you might linger there for hours.

We went on a warm August night but I can imagine this place would be beautiful during ski season as well. It was packed and we had to wait for 10 minutes to get a seat but it worth the wait.

We will go again if we are ever in the beautiful state of Washington!

Amazing Service on Saturday at Swiftwater. Kayla in the bar was efficient, warm, and kind. She took amazing care of my wife and kids.

When we got to our table Olivia maintained this service level with an wonderful dinner. Attention to detail made our journey without an issue.

Peter also stopped by to make sure all was well with our dinner. I know his great leadership allows all to succeed on the floor.

What a great night.

The wait was short so we visited the bar. Very creative bar tender. A banana what? John loved it. Dinner was good but not over the top great. Very very loud. No visiting here. Would we go back maybe. Nothing stood out .
