Six Peaks Grille Squaw Valley Interior

Why did we dine here? – Six Peaks Grille is located at the Resort at Squaw Creek In Squaw Valley and focuses on sustainable, biodynamic produce and seafood. We were skiing nearby and decided to give this restaurant a try.
Plump Jack Café and this restaurant seemed to be the best bets around here. (Unless you want to drive to Moody’s in Truckee) The Squaw Valley Village was extremely crowded for the Fourth of July holiday, with most restaurants packed full.

Insider Tip – Make a reservation, a good place to go if the village is crowded. Alfresco dining if the weather allows.

Cuisine – American
Location – Squaw Valley USA

Service – Six Peaks Grille stuck us with a fairly new server, who tried to be friendly and helpful, but wasn’t very available.
Verdict – Six Peaks Restaurant has a beautiful view of the mountains and reasonable food, making it a no-brainer if you are stuck up here.

Six Peaks Grille’s Menu features a handful of starters, flat breads, typical American dishes, and à la carte steaks and seafood.
