It’s no secret that the vistas around the Park City area are some of the best in the West.  Whether you’re looking out on to historic Main Street, or out on to the surrounding wilderness and mountains, you’ll never tire of the view!  There are quite a few restaurants in and around town that offer diners not only amazing cuisine, but stunning views as a part of the experience.

Delight in the Spectacular Surroundings at The Glitretind

One of the best outdoor dining decks in Park City can be found at the Glitretind Restaurant, located in Deer Valley.  The Glitretind offers guests a true global dining experience.  Enjoy their romantic dining room, or step outside on to their large deck and take in the views of Deer Valley ski runs and wildlife passing by.  Don’t worry if it’s a little chilly; the 5-diamond staff will happily drape you in a cozy blanket or light one of the heaters on the deck to keep you toasty.  The Glitretind was honored last year with the Sante Restaurant Award – the only Park City restaurant to receive this accolade!  Executive Chef Zane Holmquist is known for his innovative menu creations that often include locally sourced items. With the new summer menu about to launch, you’ll delight in Chef Zane’s new creations!  A new dinner selection that looks particularly sumptuous is the Poulet Rouge Chicken & Egg.   Please be sure to call ahead to make reservations, and request the deck when you call.  View their new menu at

Another fantastic spot to dine and drink in the view is Ruth’s Chris Steak House.  Located at the edge of the Park City Golf Course, and overlooking a multitude of Park City Mountain Resort ski runs, you’ll truly enjoy an evening dining on their large terrace, adjacent to their super chic dining room.  Ruth’s Chris is known around the country as THE place to go for exceptional steaks and seafood, and this Ruth’s Chris is the only one in Utah.  Their U.S. Prime Steaks are broiled to perfection, and you’re liking and served with your choice of delectable side dishes.  If you’re looking for other selections other than steak, Ruth’s Chris offers amazing Live Main Lobster, Sizzlin’ Blue Crab Cakes, and Lamb Chops to sink your teeth in to.  Located at 2001 Park Avenue, you’ll want to call (435) 940-5070 in advance for reservations. If you’re looking for a view of Historic Old Town in Park City while you dine, Cafe Terigo hosts an amazing outdoor patio, nestled amidst trees and situated perfectly for some great people watching while you dine.  Cafe Terigo offers menu options such as Herb breaded Utah trout with citrus butter, served with fresh green beans and cauliflower puree, or for those looking for meat-free options, check out the House-made Herb Cheese Ravioli with Sauteed Asparagus and Mushroom Butter Sauce.  My favorite item on the menu is their Grilled Artichoke with Lemon Basil Aioli – delicious!
