The snow on the slopes has been replaced by wildflowers and summer is in full swing at Deer Valley Resort in Park City. While you may know Deer Valley as one of the premier ski destinations in the country, things do not slow down in the summer. Deer Valley swaps groomers and powder for mountain biking and hiking trails with the same magnificent views.
One thing that does not change is the incredible food offerings for which Deer Valley has become known for. Before you hit the hiking trails or jump on your mountain bike, here is what is on the menu this summer at Deer Valley.
Something for Everyone
Deer Valley Grocery-Café has something for everyone. Open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily, Deer Valley Grocery~Café serves breakfast, lunch, Grab and Go, and ready-to-eat frozen gourmet take-away items in the Deer Valley Plaza building in the Snow Park area. Take in the view from the outdoor deck with the avocado toast or open-faced lox for breakfast, the kale and berry salad or the famous Deer Valley Turkey Chili for lunch.

Lunch with a View
Recharge and refuel after a morning on the mountain at Royal Street Café. This favorite spot for locals offers scenic deck dining, mid-mountain at Silver Lake Lodge. The Dungeness Crab Tower is a guest favorite and pairs perfectly with the famous blueberry mojito. Royal Street Café also offers a plethora of salads and chili as well as specialty items like the Nashville fried chicken sandwich and the smoked Wagyu brisket sandwich.

New this summer, Royal Street Express, offers guests a quick grab and go option on the mountain. From Nashville-style chicken sandwiches to roasted cauliflower rice bowls, this is not your typical grab and go. Royal Street Express is also the place to grab cold beverages, beers, cookies, and ice cream sandwiches.
Fine Italian Cuisine
Located in the scenic Lodges at Deer Valley, The Brass Tag serves fine Italian cuisine either at your table or to-go. The fried cheese curd is a must have; they are beer battered, made with fresh Wisconsin curds, and served with housemade marinara. Entrées include brick-oven pizza, Tagliata di Manzo and lobster ricotta ravioli to name a few. After your main course, save a little room for dessert. The skillet-cooked brownie is to die for.
Friday Afternoon Club
Enjoy the mountain air and celebrate Fridays at The Goldener Hirsch located in Silver Lake Village. The Goldener Hirsch and Traeger Grills® have partnered this summer to create a series of culinary experiences paired with Alpine Distilling libations. The Friday Afternoon Club features live music from 3 to 6 p.m. every Friday through September 3 on the deck of the new Goldener Hirsch Café. Meet on the Bridge to create memories at the FAC!

Music and a Meal
