Dining in the High Country

From French fries to four-star restaurants, the High Country offers up a full and diverse menu of dining options, whether you desire a quick snack, a multi-course meal or appetizers with drinks.

The High Country packs in quite a few locally owned, independent restaurants that you won’t find anywhere else, with burger joints, authentic international fare, upscale cuisine and everything in between. Many work with area growers to bring the farm to the table.

Some restaurants change their hours seasonally, so call ahead before making dinner plans.
