Just 35 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport, Park City is an easily accessible Alpine oasis that has something for everyone: a walkable downtown area, picturesque mountains, and an enviable dining scene. When big events hit town – check out the Sundance Film Festival – the parties are the next level, with a bit of Hollywood glamor taking over the city’s historic Main Street. In the summer, adventure seekers come to Deer Valley, the Canyons, and Park City Mountain for biking, hiking, fly fishing, climbing, and rafting, as well as Park Silly Sunday Market, a weekly farmers market meet street festival that runs from June to September.
Whether the occasion calls for a sumptuous dinner and drinks after shopping in town, or refueling with brunch before mountain biking the trails, Park City restaurants are there for you. From traditional Thai to healthy fast casual to the world’s best lobster rolls – here are the main restaurants of Utah’s most famous ski resort and summer destination.
Update July 2021: While the Sundance Film Festival was virtual this year, the Wasatch Back winter proved to be a relative financial success despite the pandemic. Park City is expected to be “incredibly busy” with few COVID restrictions in place, though individual companies may still enforce their own rules. Just in time for you to head to the mountains on vacation, we’ve updated our restaurant guide to highlight the most popular spots, from gourmet favorites to persistent goodies – all run by people who earn a lot of praise (and plenty of tips) should make it through their toughest season ever.
Note: Inclusion of restaurants offering dine-in service should not be viewed as recommendations for dining inside. Studies indicate a lower risk of exposure to COVID-19 outdoors, but the level of risk depends on social distancing and other safety guidelines. Inquire at each restaurant for up-to-date information on dining options.
