Adolph’s

Adolph’s has been our favorite Park City restaurant, and the favorite of many, for as long as we can remember. Swiss native Adolph Imboden, one of the U.S. Ski Team’s biggest fans, serves the most consistently best and most reasonably priced meals of any restaurant in Park City!

Park City is home to many world-class restaurants. Adolph holds his own against all of them! And dinner at Adolph’s, including salad, runs in the mid to high $20’s for all the veal items, and low $30s for beef — a price none of the big league restaurants in town can match for what you get!

The classic Tom and Carole menu selection is Veal Adolph’s for Tom and Wienerschnitzel for Carole. For starters, nothing beats raclette, or maybe an order of Buenderfleisch (dried meats). While we usually opt for veal at Adolph’s, the beef and seafood selections are equally extraordinary.

You also have to save room for dessert, specifically the apple strudel (get it with vanilla sauce).

Adolph’s has an outstanding wine list, as well as a decent selection of wines by the glass. We’re big fans of Sebastiani wines which offer great value. Adolph’s is now serving up Sebastiani’s cabernet sauvignon by the glass ($9 but worth it).

Adolph’s has been a fixture in Park City for over 20 years. Adolph came to Park City with stops in St. Moritz and Vail before coming to work for the Park City Ski Area. He later started his own restaurant, previously located on the Park City Golf Course. A few years ago that space fell to construction of the Hotel Park City. So Adoph moved into a ‘doomed’ space next to the U.S. Ski Team office on Kearns Blvd. But unlike the half-dozen restaurants that had failed in the space, Adolph’s business boomed. Today, you’ll need a reservation almost any night of the week year-round.

What we especially like at Adolph’s is that every guest is truly made to feel special. A big factor in that is Adolph’s hands-on approach. He’s in the kitchen, he’s in the bar, he’s in the dining room. And his staff is probably the most experienced in town — nobody every leaves Adolph’s, and it’s likely the waiter or waitress will remember you from last year. All I have to do is walk into the bar and Mary has a bottle of Franziskanner ready for me!

When I need to do a business dinner, or want that extra special place for dinner with friends, Adolph’s is one of two places in town that are at the top of the list.
