Choosing somewhere to eat in Park City Utah can be a bewildering task. Restaurants line historic Main Street – top to bottom – not to mention the various resorts scattered around town too. And none of it comes cheap, expect to spend a pretty penny while in Park City. As such, you’re going to want to be judicious with your dining dollars and time – which is hopefully where this list comes in!
The following restaurants are all places we’ve either dined at and had a great time personally or would happily plonk down our own money at tomorrow. A great meal should be expected at all of these Park City restaurants:
This centerpiece restaurant of the luxury Stein Eriksen mountain resort is well worth the brief drive up Marsac Avenue; just 5-10 minutes drive from Park City’s Main Street. The reason for making the journey is simple – chef Zane Holmquist’s award winning cooking is some of the best in the state. Holmquist is a nationally recognized chef (everything from NYC’s James Beard House through recurring stints on NBC’s today show) and his talent shines through on every beautiful plate at Glitretind. Forbes four-star accredited, the menu changes seasonally showcasing local ingredients where possible.

Freshies Lobster Co
Fresh lobster rolls among the snowy peaks of Park City, seriously? Yep, we’re deadly serious. Need convincing? In 2017 Freshies Lobster Co. beat all comers in Maine’s Lobster Roll Festival, winning a coveted best lobster roll in the country award! In makes sense though, the product is flown directly from the East coast, hand couriered from the airport to PC and then handled with care by the chef owners – East coast natives.

The Park City restaurant scene is dominated by New American dining options, so finding more eclectic flavors can always be a challenge; so when you find a gem like Reef’s you come back time and again. Now located in the Deer Valley Club, the restaurant offers modern Mediterranean cuisine. That means all your favorites such as falafel, hummus, babaghanouj and more – all executed and plated with style.

Butcher’s Chop House
Among the glitz of Main Street, Butcher’s isn’t the fanciest or swankiest place in town. But when I’m craving a steak or similar and I’m on Main Street and not wanting to break the bank – I come here. Throughout the year the restaurant offers 2-for-1 specials meaning your filet mignon is free if your partner orders up some delicious king crab legs for example. Deal. The staff is well drilled and the vibe is more casual than much of Main Street – which can be a welcome respite at times. There’s a fun and casual bar up front too which makes a perfect place to while away an evening.

Ganesh Indian Cuisine
If you’re in the mood for something a little different after hitting the slopes, amidst all the New American options – what about some hearty Indian food? Rich curries, filling rice dishes and spices aplenty! Ganesh Indian cuisine also offers an affordable and delicious respite from the otherwise spend locations vying for your attention.

If you’re looking for something completely different from the Main Street vibe, head just a few minutes up to this Deer Valley restaurant. The theme, design and menu is classic European alpine resort, with a sprinkling of local and seasonal ingredients. Schnitzel, fondue, rillete – there’s lots of olde world charm to love and savor here.

Billy Blanco’s Motor City Mexican
Don’t let the over the top name, or the equally ludicrous interior (littered with muscle cards and bikes), throw you off. Billy B’s is deadly serious about the food. The Billy Blanco in question is Park City restaurateur genius Bill White, which should tell you all you need to know – the food here is spot on. The menu is comfort food crafted with care and class: tacos, burgers, nachos and more.

If you only have time for one meal in Park City, make reservations for Handle right now and thank us later. You’ll be glad you did, and then some. Chef and owner Briar Handly crafts some of the most elegant and refined cuisine of any restaurant in the state of Utah; let alone the resorts of Park City. The New American menu is always in flux and flow, changing with the seasons and the product from local farms, purveyors and producers. Handle (and sister restaurant HSL in SLC) wouldn’t be out of place in any major US foodie city.
