If you haven't eaten at the Overlook Restaurant at Black Rock Mountain Resort you need to.

Black Rock Mountain Resort is surrounded by the beautiful Wasatch Mountain Range and Overlook Restaurant is in the heart of the Resort and offers the best views from just about every seat.

Overlook Restaurant is open daily, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. They offer a locally inspired new American cuisine with multicultural influences.

Executive Chef Ernesto's cooking style is a melting pot of culture and Park City's local vibes.

They're open for a Thanksgiving Buffet on Thursday, November 25 from 11am to 6pm. There will be breakfast items, hot and cold stations, a carving station and an incredible dessert table. Make your reservations on OpenTable.
